CD Projekt Red’s dark fantasy RPG series, The Witcher, has sold more than 33 million copies worldwide. The Witcher III: Wild Hunt is one of the most critically acclaimed games of its generation and bridged into comics through several mini-series published by Dark Horse. This fall fans will get a collection of all the stories with bonus material from industry legends in The Witcher Library Edition.
The latest in Dark Horse’s line of mantle-worthy oversized books contains issues 1-5 of The Witcher House of Glass, Fox Children, Curse of Crows, and the Killing Monsters one-shot. These books fill in the backstory of the series protagonist Geralt of Rivia, the last surviving monster hunter. Not only will the story art of Joe Querio (B.P.R.D.: Hell on Earth), Piotr Kowalski (Sex), and Max Bertolini (Universo Alfa) be collected but the extras include annotation by frequent video game adapter and Eisner award winner Paul Tobin (Bandette, Colder).
Best of all is the book’s exclusive art gallery featuring original pieces by Dave Johnson (100 Bullets), Dan Panosian (Slots), Stan Sakai (Usagi Yojimbo), Duncan Fegredo (MPH), Simon Bisley (Lobo), and a new cover by Mike Mignola (Hellboy).
The Witcher Library Edition also might be a temporary ending on all things Witcher as CD Projekt Red is getting ready to show off its newest game Cyberpunk 2077 at E3 this year.
