Dark Horse Comics is set to release a new The Witcher comic miniseries in just a few weeks called The Witcher: Witch's Lament. This is just the latest in a long line of The Witcher comics at the publisher, and Witch's Lament specifically is written by CD Projekt Red writer and narrative manager Bartosz Sztybor with art by Vanesa R. del Rey, colors by Jordie Bellaire, and letters by Aditya Bidikar. The miniseries, true to its name, sees Geralt dealing with the aftermath of a witch being burned at the stake. And Dark Horse Comics has provided ComicBook.com with a preview of the first issue!
"The Witcher: Witch's Lament follows famed witcher Geralt after a routine hunt," Dark Horse Comics' description of the new series reads. "But when the captured witch is burned at the stake, Geralt is haunted by images of her death, and a harrowing warning begins to take shape. Soon, Geralt finds himself drawn into the mystery surrounding this heinous persecution."
