    The Witcher has so far been a great read the story ebbs and flows between exposition and action at a fair pace. If you are looking for the best game tie in book then this should be in the running. However there are a few worries as the story continues most notably how can Geralt keep putting himself in harm’s way. I hope the mini-series has the ending it deserves but only time will tell, one thing is for sure I will be reading to the end. Read Full Review

    The Witcher #3 is an enjoyable issue for the most part but the plodding story line pushes the boundary between suspense and stalling with it feeling mostly like the latter. The characters however are still very intriguing as a little bit of one's backstory is revealed, and thankfully the potential in the story line is still there. However it definitely needs to move forward next issue and with a major change affecting one of the elements present throughout the series that seems to be a certainty, and just in time too.

    It's probably too much to ask for every single issue of a comic series to be absolutely riveting. The occasional one will flop or be nothing but an exposition set-up for the rest of the plot. The Witcher #3 is definitely not the best of the series so far, but I'm hopeful that what it leads up to will be completely worth it.The Witcher #3 releases on May 21, 2014 at retail and via digital download.

    There are only two problems with Issue #3; the first being the art, which are so noticeably different from the graphics of the computer game that the characters can often be barely recognisable. The second problem was the way in which Jakob was written out of the story to allow a 1-2-1 discussion between the Witcher and his new Succubus love interest; declaring I cant just stand here, I must find [my wife]! before running out of the story to nowhere in particular.
