Dark Horse Comics will produce a line of comic books based on Eve Online, Dust 514, and The Witcher, the publisher announced during New York Comic Con.
Witcher #1, written by Paul Tobin (Bandette) and drawn by Joe Querio (Lobster Johnson, BRPD), will be available March 19, 2014. The story revolves around Geralt and “a windowed man whose dead and murderous wife resided in an eerie mansion known as the House of Glass.”
Deadpool writer Daniel Way will pen Eve: True Stories—inspired by emergent tales from Eve Online—while artists Alejandro Aragon (28 Days Later), Tomm Coker (Daredevil Noir), Federico Dallocchio (Batman: Arkham Unhinged), and Mark McKenna (Star Wars: The Old Republic) will handle the visuals. Dark Horse will also publish Eve: Source, which they describe as “a comprehensive sourcebook and visual guide for the immense universe of Eve Online and Dust 514). Eve: Source will be available March 5, 2014.
Dark Horse Comics and Witcher developer CD Projekt Red teased their collaboration last week with a short teaser video about a mystery “near the edge of the Black Forest.”
