The Witcher is a video game series from CD Projekt RED based on a medieval fantasy book series. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is coming out this year and, right on time, we have a new comic series based on the video game!
Like the game series, the comic is full of monsters and dark humor. It was definitely creepy, and I enjoyed the horror-style art for the series. The pacing and writing is excellent.
As much as the “boobs everywhere” thing bothered me, the humor and interesting plot have me hooked for now, and I’m eagerly awaiting The Witcher #2!
“Traveling near the edge of the Black Forest, monster hunter Geralt meets a widowed fisherman whose dead and murderous wife resides in an eerie mansion known as the House of Glass—which seems to have endless rooms, nothing to fill them with, and horror around every corner.”
