    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. Read Full Review

    It's quite good. Seeing the more human and mundane side of Geralt is worth the price of admission, and watching Dandelion once again muck up his friend's life is a welcome read. Read Full Review

    Though this was primarily a plot-laying issue, the first installation of The Witcher: Of Flesh and Flame intrigues me to no end and has me wanting to find out what happens to Geralt next! Read Full Review

    The comic itself is very solid; everything within its pages works very well; the art is smooth and easily followed, and the story is accessible and enjoyable regardless of whether you're familiar with Geralt of Rivia or not. The flip side to this accessibility is that the first issue may come off as a little simplistic, but that's something I'm willing to forgive given how much I enjoyed the comic. As my first introduction to the Witcher's universe in comic book form, this book turned out to be a great jumping on point. Read Full Review

    If superfluous sexiness doesn't pull you out of a story (and if you're reading a Witcher comic, it likely won't), you'll enjoy this comic. Read Full Review

    "The Witcher: Of Flesh and Flame" #1 is a pleasant return to The Witcher Universe marred by an average script and interior artwork. Read Full Review
