    Also, I totally just found out that this comic is based on a video game. Cool, cool. Probably should have Googled that beforehand. It must be a good game if it inspired a comic book to be made for it. I look forward to the next issue. Read Full Review

    The Witcher #2 is an enjoyable issue and another treat for fans of the Witcher and those unfamiliar with the character alike. There's plenty of tension being built with the deliberate story being crafted by Tobin and the action is entertaining as we get a taste of the Witcher's abilities. The new character is intriguing and I'm hoping some answers are given regarding the entire situation, and after two issues I believe the payoff will eventually be worth it. Read Full Review

    The Witcher series so far feels like a new game in comic form. You do lack the ability to make choices but if you are the adventurous type this is the way you will probably play the game anyway. The story has depth thanks to its characters as well as an air of mystery surrounding location they find themselves in. This really is a series worth diving into from the start. Read Full Review

    The Witcher continues to impress, prevailing as one of the best video game tie-in comics going on. In addition, it simultaneously alleviates the pain of the next game's delay while making the delay all the more painful. However, the most painful part is knowing I have to wait another month to learn more about this evil house. Read Full Review

    If you love atmospheric horror mysteries, The Witcher is an excellent book for you. It transends its video game roots and under Tobin and Querio and becomes its own entity. It is not the type of story for those seeking the hack and slash mechanics often found in fantasy, though it certainly has those elements, as the story has its own timetable when to reach its destination. The dialogue between characters that have personalities are natural and fluid, even if some characters would seem to be enemies based on Geralt's job description alone. Two issues in with the climax around the corner, this story is turning out to be a creepy slow burn of a good time. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Joey Caswell Apr 23, 2014

    This mini-series has been surprisingly enjoyable and Paul Tobin has done an excellent job of writing a story based on an already established franchise, while still making it accessible to newcomers. The book is fun and exciting, and the visuals are terrific. It will be really interesting to see where the plot goes next after the strange cliffhanger ending this month! Read Full Review

    It should be clear by this point that I highly recommend The Witcher to basically everyone. In a world of terrible comic adaptations like Mass Effect or god help you Tomb Raider, The Witcher stands tall as a beacon of quality in a sea of mediocrity and awfulness, a stunning triumph of slow paced story telling, creepy horror infused atmosphere, and a faith in the immersion of the comic's artwork and designs to draw you into the characters without the need of some complex narrative, which is beginning to feel like a serious rarity. It's a great book and I highly recommend it (also 5 bucks says that the reason the food keeps appearing in banquet halls is that this is actually a video game and that's the secret of the mansion Wreck-It-Ralph/Lego Movie style.)

    Though I found the art left me wanting the story itself is very strong and gives some good action while keeping a degree of mystery around the witcher to make me come back for more. Read Full Review

    Overall though, The Witcher is definitely an intriguing series, and while the first two issues have done an admirable job of the ‘set up', I think its about time that we had a little payoff. Ill definitely be sticking with it to see how things pan out, and I have total faith that Tobin and Querrio can turn things around as the series nears its conclusion. Read Full Review
