The Witcher: The Ballad of Two Wolves, a new comic book series due to debut later this year, has been officially announced by Dark Horse Comics and CD Projekt Red. Written by Bartosz Sztybor, The Witcher: The Ballad of Two Wolves has illustrations and colours by Miki Montlló. Additionally, the new series involves letterer Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou. On 21 December, The Witcher: The Ballad of Two Wolves #1 will be released, with three more issues to follow.
The comic book series will examine a well-known mythological tale with a particularly dark and horrific twist, as is customary for The Witcher franchise. It appears that The Witcher: The Ballad of Two Wolves will especially address the fairy tales of Little Red Riding Hood and The Three Little Pigs. In addition to Geralt of Rivia, who is referred to as the White Wolf within the franchise, the name appears to be a reference to the wolf from The Three Little Pigs tale.
The Witcher Geralt is summoned to the town of Grimmwald after being hailed as the best monster killer. The official synopsis of The Witcher: The Ballad of Two Wolves reads: When a strange occurrence stirs murmurs of a werewolf on the prowl, rumours spread about the peculiar arrival of three Piglet sisters. With a grand mystery and a monster to kill, Dandelion may just find the inspiration he needs to write the perfect ballad.
