Depending on your point of view, The Witcher is either this awesome warrior or a jerk who wanders the countryside. Either way, he's got a few games under his belt as well as some comics and books. Not content with the status quo, Dark Horse is teaming up with CD Projekt Red for The World of the Witcher, an essential companion to The Witcher video game series.
"Dark Horse is very enthusiastic about expanding our collaboration CD Projekt Red on The World of The Witcher," notes Nick McWhorter, Vice President of Media Licensing at Dark Horse Comics. "This book is a perfect way for fans to take a deep dive into the vast and compelling lore they have created with The Witcher franchise, whether they are longtime followers of the games and novels or are being introduced this world for the first time.”
The World of the Witcher features never before published original art from each Witcher game. Readers will be able to dive deep into the world of monster hunters, as the prominent characters from the universe take you on a guided tour of the fascinating dark fantasy adventure that is The Witcher. This gorgeous, illustrated hardbound volume contains in-depth knowledge about the locales, the deadly beasts that inhabit them and the lethal weapons used to put them down.
“The World of the Witcher is really unique, as it’s the first successful attempt of creating such a comprehensive compendium about the Witcher series of games and beyond,” said Rafał Jaki, Franchise Director, CD PROJEKT RED. “I’m sure gamers and fans of the universum will have tons of fun reading it,” added Jaki.
