    This story begins with fast-paced action and plot twists every ten pages, making the reading so addictive.

    Art achieves very dynamic sequences using textures, achieving a gloomy tone perfect for this story. Body language and facial expressions elevate dialogues.

    The Story: A thrilling adventure from Sztybor. The story has some great action throughout and an interesting premise that puts Geralt on the defensive from multiple sides. The plot is immediately engaging and draws in the reader with its immediacy and twists. I really enjoyed the progression of this story and how it sets up some interesting conflicts to come.

    The Art: Rerekina delivers some beautifully detailed art. I love the character designs and the environments are visually stunning.

    Dark Horse Comics’ curation of The Witcher as a licensed property has proven to be one of the publisher’s most successful recent endeavors. Each new installment captures the tone and mood of the franchise while delving into original stories that maintain the same sorts of mysteries and moral ambiguity that make Geralt of Rivia’s adventures consistently thrilling. Wild Animals #1 introduces the story when Geralt is marrooned on an island following circumstances that, once again, suggest the real monsters are more likely to be found amongst humanity than in the wild. It introduces him to an island torn between warring parties in a conflict certain to challenge readers’ assumptions. The mystery presented to kick things off are instantly enticing and it is paired with action that moves with the fierce speed and brutality that marks The Witcher across media. Wherever The Witcher: Wild Animals is heading in future chapters, readers may anticipate them without any worry that they’re getting anything but the best Witcher story available in comics today.
