Those who have been reading The Witcher: Fading Memories know how authentic Dark Horse Comics' Witcher series feels in relation to the games and the overall Witcher world, and the good news is we're getting even more Witcher goodness later this year. Dark Horse Comics has announced a new Witcher mini-series titled The Witcher: Witch's Lament, and CD Projekt Red writer and narrative manager Bartosz Sztybor is once again at the helm. He will be joined by artist Vanesa R. del Rey, colorist Jordie Bellaire, and letterer Aditya Bidikar for the new mini-series, which will run for four issues starting in May.
Witch's Lament will once more follow Geralt on his monster-hunting adventures, but after his latest successful hunt, Geralt will discover there was far more to it than he suspected. A witch is captured and burned at the stake, and afterward, Geralt can't stop seeing haunting images of her death. Those images also include a warning that draws him into a greater mystery surrounding the people he was working for, why she was being hunted in the first place, and her tragic death, and he's going to have to get to the bottom of it all.
The Witcher: Witch's Lament will kick off on May 26th, and you can check out the new cover for the series and the official description below.

Caught between the townsfolks' recollections of the kidnapping and a slew of disturbing visions, Geralt must face the approaching danger with his own intuition.
