Though Geralt of Rivia's story may be finished in the video game universe, the hero's journey is far from over. Dark Horse Comics and CD Projekt RED are teaming up once more for a brand new comic series called The Witcher: Of Flesh and Flame and it will be making its grand debut this December!

With The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt writer Aleksandra Motyka at the helm and art done by the talented Marianna Strychowska, the new comic mini-series is guaranteed to be the perfect addition to the lore so many fell in love with.
