The Witcher season two is nearly upon us, and while you’ll have to wait a bit longer for The Witcher: A Grain of Truth — the new, official graphic novel from Dark Horse Comics, based on the short story written by Andrzej Sapkowski — we’ve got a sneak peek to share today. The story is the basis for the season two premiere, so really this is kind of two sneak peeks in one!

Here’s a quick summary of the story: “Geralt comes across a derelict mansion where he is met with the current owner — not quite human, but a beast with the faculties of a man. The beast invites him inside where he shares stories of his family, his life… and his curse. If the weight of his misdeeds could condemn him to the body of a beast — a retribution spoken of only in fairy tales, could there be another grain of truth in these tales of fantasy — one that could help him elude his fate and lead him to salvation?”
