While we won't be seeing any more of Geralt's tale any time soon in video games, that doesn't mean the infamous Witcher's journey is over - far from it! CD Projekt RED and Dark Horse Comics have teamed up once more for a thrilling new narrative featuring everyone's favorite ashen haired protagonist, and we've got your first look at what issue #2 has to offer!
The second issue certainly starts on a dramatic note but it is hilarious to see that familiar incredulity on Geralt's face during his representation. Still, the journey begins to heat up with the second issue and there is still so much more to come.
Dark Horse Comics tells us, "After arriving in an enigmatic location by mistake, and being forced to hide their identities, Geralt and Dandelion find themselves faced with an impossible task. Concurrently, Geralt’s attention is drawn to a series of strange episodes surrounding the King’s concubines. Will the duo be able to solve the palace’s dilemma, as well as their own, and secure their safety and freedom?"
We got our first look of the first issue earlier this year and Dark Horse told us a little more about what we could expect from this new series as a whole:
"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."
The first issue is available now to jump right into the new narrative, with the second issue going live on January 9th. You can also pre-order it now through local comic shops, major retailers, and the Dark Horse site itself!
