Praise for The Witcher comics:
“Overall, I really liked this first issue and felt at home with Geralt once again. This is testament to the writer and artist, capturing this world and its characters perfectly. They do this, but also bring their own unique spin, moulding an original and gutsy tale that is bound to entertain and satisfy fans and those new to the franchise as well.” (The Witcher: Of Flesh and Flame #1)–Impulse Gamer
“The story takes a turn that really is the epitome of a gut punch, but these types of stories are what Witcher does best, and this yet another excellent addition to the franchise.”(The Witcher: Fading Memories #1) –Comicbook.com
“The story by Bartosz Sztybor establishes an intriguing mystery and draws upon the mythology of the setting while still being accessible to newcomers who might come into this comic knowing nothing of The Witcher.” (The Witcher: Witch’s Lament #1) –Kabooooom
