    This small annoyance aside the book does pick up tremendously from here to the end of the issue. It becomes a real page turner as events develop and conflicts arise. Going in I didnt think this book would be anything to write home about but in fact its the opposite. You could almost recommend this book to anyone and theyd have a good time, increasingly more so for those already familiar with the world. If only it had a brief intro to bring new comers up to speed on the bare essentials, then thered be no reason not to recommend it. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Apr 1, 2015

    This is a no-brainer for fans of general lore who STILL havent had their fill before the next massive videogame release for Geralt. While its doubtful this will tie directly into it, Querio and Tobin get the characters and setting well enough to give fans plenty to enjoy, though newcomers may want to seek out either the first book or even game, as the comic becomes far, far more enjoyable with that context already established.

    Comics: The Gathering - Forrest Hollingsworth Apr 1, 2015

    This is in no way a good introduction to The Witcher series but that’s not its intent. It’s a good, if somewhat hollow, book that expands Geralt’s story without taking away from his character or making leaps that the games wouldn’t. I have no large complaints here and I would be hard pressed to see why any other fan would either. Read Full Review

    Its an enjoyable read that moves at a good pace and the art is solid too with some truly gorgeous panels with superb attention to detail. If it sounds as if I am damning with faint praise, Im not. My words just cant beat the last line. Now? Now were fucked. Youll want to find out why. Read Full Review

    Florida Geek Scene - Brian Reed Apr 8, 2015

    Fox Children #1 reminds me a lot of my favorite Dungeons and Dragons comic – part danger, part fun, and all adventure and excitement. It does an excellent job of making these characters seem exotic, especially when everyone goes on and on about how bad ass a Witcher really is. It's a fun read, and I'm all set for a fun adventure now. I'll be back for issue 2 just as soon as it's ready. Read Full Review

    The Latest Pull - Jess Bawgus Apr 2, 2015

    Fox Children feels very much like one of Sapkowski's short stories – small, self-contained, yet a perfect slice of its overarching world and mythos. Artistic skill is all over the place, however, and there's one awful scene that makes the unfortunate mistake of opening the story, but the premise is incredibly solid for a horror miniseries. Also hey, it will tie you over until Wild Hunt comes out next month. Read Full Review
