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. While it follows on from The Witcher: House of Glass, which was an original story, Fox Children is instead based on one of chapters of Andrzej Sapkowski's Season of Storms novel.[2]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The cover of the first issue and the drawings inside show a three masted ship, allthough 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".[3]
