As announced Friday live on WitcherCon with CD PROJEKT RED, Dark Horse is pleased to reveal the graphic novel adaption of Andrzej Sapkowski's acclaimed short story collection! With script adaptation by Jacek Rembis (Frostpunk) and Travis Currit (The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, The Witcher: Curse of Crows, The Witcher: Of Flesh and Flame), art by Jonas Scharf (Bone Parish, War for the Planet of the Apes), and cover by Kai Carpenter, the graphic novels begin Spring 2022 with The Witcher: A Grain of Truth. Geralt’s encounter with a beast reveals the truth behind fairy tales in this graphic novel adaptation of Andrzej Sapkowski's original short story, A Grain of Truth. The famed witcher Geralt takes a shortcut down a beaten path where he makes a grim discovery of two corpses. Backtracking their trail, he’s led to a derelict mansion adorned with a rare elegance he can’t ignore. Geralt is met with the mansion’s owner—not quite human, but a beast with the faculties of a man. Unfazed by his monstrous appearance and displays of aggression, the beast invites him inside. A kind, but wary host, he shares stories of his family, his life . . . and his curse. If the weight of his misdeeds could condemn him to the body of a beast—a retribution spoken of only in fairy tales, could there be another grain of truth in these tales of fantasy—one that could help him elude his fate and lead him to salvation? Andrzej Sapkowski's The Witcher: A Grain of Truth arrives in comic shops April 27, 2022, and bookshops May 10, 2022. Pre-order now from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and your local comic shop for $17.99.
