Fan-favorite witcher Geralt is no stranger to jobs gone wrong, but washing ashore on a strange new land forces him into a conflict between the hunters who took him in and a mysterious clan known to kill humans. Where man and creatures coexist, there is an unspoken rule—one where the skills of a witcher go beyond killing monsters.

Praise for The Witcher The Ballad of Two Wolves

“Feels like a side quest right out of the games, and I mean with the highest praise I can offer.”—Comic Crusaders

“Fans of The Witcher series will find The Ballad of Two Wolves to be a welcome continuation of Geralt’s adventures. The story by Bartosz Sztybor does a fine job of emulating the original novels of Andrzej Sapkowski, putting a dark twist on a classic fairy tale. The artwork by Miki Montllo is perfect, with fluid action, rich colors and distinctive character designs. Best of all, this story is easily accessible to anyone who hasn’t played The Witcher games or seen the Netflix series. If you haven’t explored the world of The Witcher before, this book is a perfect entry point.”—Kabooooom

“This is a perfect introduction to a miniseries that already feels like an emblematic Witcher story.”—
