The Rundown: Geralt is plagued by a recent death. In the meantime, his current actions are brought to the attention of a nobleman.

Geralt watches the fatal torture of a captive from his latest assignment. Afterwards he is haunted by a feeling of remorse. While traveling in search of a new job, Geralt rescues a stranger from a group of deadly enemies. He then escorts that person to their home. Once there, Geralt is commissioned by a nobleman to engage in a new mission.

The Story:
Bartosz Sztybor has created a fast paced narrative that is gritty, raw and very compelling. This episode does a good job of mixing content and action. Geralt’s newest storyline has me hooked. And I can’t wait for the next installment.

The Art:
This issue is filled with detailed drawings that often portray graphic nudity and violence. The color palate changes with the mood and tone of the story, and has a water color quality to it. I found the variety of colors eye catching and interesting.
