The Witcher: Fox Children is a comic book series written by Paul Tobin and illustrated by Joe Querio, published by Dark Horse Comics in 2015. It is available in both digital and physical formats. Each individual issue can be collected, or a hard back edition with all issues included can be bought. Geralt’s journey leads him aboard a ship of fools, renegades, and criminals - but some passengers are more dangerous than others, and one hides a hideous secret! Noteworthy thing is that instead of previous comics House of Glass or Reason of State (which was new stories) this story is based on one of chapters in Seasson of Storms writed by Andrzej Sapkowski. Story location is ship Prophet Lebioda.[2]

As Geralt and the stranded crew of the Prophet explore their swampy surroundings, the Fox Mother uses her animal guile and magical prowess to tempt the sinners to their doom! But in her rage, does the Fox Mother care if an innocent should fall in her trap as well?[5]

Fourth Issue Edit

The crew of the Prophet begin to turn on each other as the Fox Mother’s mystical illusions lead them to their fate. Now even Geralt is forced to question what is reality and what is just the fantastic projection of the scorned she-beast![6]

Geralt's journey leads him aboard a ship of fools, renegades, and criminals--but some passengers are more dangerous than others, and one hides a heinous secret that could lead crew and passengers to a bitter and hideous fate at the hand of a vengeful fox mother![8]

Trivia Edit

  • The cover of the first issue and the drawings inside show a three masted ship, although the story tells about a classic single masted sloop - "but CD Projekt Red", as the artist says, "had me change it to a three-masted ship." They "changed the design to fit the look of the game".[9]
