The Witcher: Of Flesh and Flame Comic Series Announced
Even if we never see The Witcher 4, Geralt of Rivia will never truly leave us. CD Projekt Red’s next game, Cyberpunk 2077, includes at least one wonderful Witcher easter egg. After successfully campaigning for the role, Henry Cavill will play the White Wolf in the upcoming Netflix series. A spinoff game, Thronebreaker, drops on December 4 of this year. Even the biggest game companies learned from the series, proving that influence never dies. And now, we have some new Witcher reading material heading our way just in time for the holidays.
Dark Horse Comics and CD Projekt Red announced a new comic series entitled The Witcher: Of Flesh and Flame. Aleksandra Motyka, a writer for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, wrote the series and ensures that Geralt will remain in capable hands. Talented Polish artist Marianna Strychowska provided the accompanying illustrations. While we only have a single image so far, it falls right in line with the franchise so many have come to love.
Dark Horse showed off the cover of the first issue of the mini-series, with Geralt donning his canonical Wolf School gear. Geralt stands guard over a sleeping girl, ready to cast the Igni sign, while a shadowy figure looms in the window. My guess is a higher vampire. Dark Horse’s summary may prove that theory correct.
“Geralt is summoned by an old friend to help solve a mystery involving his daughter. Upon his arrival, Geralt is surprised by another friend from the past and he soon finds himself transported to regions beyond his original expectations.”
Could that other friend be Regis? Here’s to hoping! I miss that eloquent devil every day.
The first four issues of The Witcher: Of Flesh and Flame go on sale December 19. If you know any fans of The Witcher, CD Projekt Red and Dark Horse just made your holiday shopping much easier.
