Created in collaboration with CD Projekt Red, Dark Horse Comics will be publishing The Witcher: Corvo Bianco in May, a brand new comic series featuring the American comics debut of Italian comics creator Corrado Mastantuono, known for his work on Disney Italia and Nick Raider.

The new series is written by Witcher storyteller Bartosz Sztybor, coloured by Matteo Vattani and lettered by Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou with variant covers from Tonci Zonjic, Neyef, and Jorge Molina.

For a witcher, the simple life can be hard to come by, and even harder to pass up. When Geralt acquires a taste for a slower pace—good wine, and good company—the routines of a witcher are easily eclipsed. With Yennefer at his side, one might hope that Geralt will truly get to enjoy a taste of the good life. But the stains of history are deep, and with blood and wine, every drop attracts those who want more.

“For all who know Geralt, Corvo Bianco is his endgame,” confirmed longtime Witcher writer Bartosz Sztybor. “The end of his journey, one and only place where he can retire – taking a break from killing monsters and trying to figure out how to make his own wine. As a fan of pop–culture and postmodern genre mixing, that setup above sounded like a perfect premise for a western. A western in The Witcher world – that’s something that was never done before! So I quickly got excited and thought about getting on board someone who really knows what western is. Corrado Mastantuono is a comic book legend, one of the biggest names of all time, a person that created the most important titles in European comics, including a real western classic – Tex. With him mixing fantasy and western was never easier and more beautiful. Geralt roaming the Continent with a wild bunch of mages, Elves and Dwarves is my homage to Andrzej Sapkowski, Clint Eastwood and Sergio Leone. Just imagine, Yennefer having a duel with another mage and Geralt attacking a stagecoach. Corvo Bianco was his dream, but he needs to fight for it!”

 The Witcher: Corvo Bianco #1 (of 5) is published on the 8th of May 8, 2024 and will be part of Dark Horse’s April 2024 solicitations.
