The Witcher is CD PROJEKT RED's flagship video game franchise and has sold over twenty million copies worldwide. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was named Game of the Year at the 2015 Game Awards. The Witcher: Curse of Crows is Dark Horse's newest collaboration with CD PROJEKT RED, preceded by the comic series The Witcher: House of Glass and The Witcher: Fox Children, and various collectible figures and glassware.
Curse of Crows explores the dark and gritty world of the popular video game series. Geralt and Ciri are embroiled in a battle for revenge as they travel to Novigard while hunting monsters. During their journey, the Witchers save a young woman from a troll, but Geralt and Ciri quickly discover she is more than what she seems. Eisner nominee Paul Tobin (Bandette, Mystery Girl) writes Curse of Crows, Piotr Kowalski (The Steam Man, SEX) lends his illustration skills, Brad Simpson (Catalyst Comix, SEX) colors the series, and Nate Piekos (Umbrella Academy, Atland) letters it. The story team behind the game also co-wrote the series.
