While The Witcher franchise is still relatively unknown, Geralt is arguably more famous now than he was just a few years ago. With Gwent, a Netflix series and anime and now this manga, The Witcher series has slowly but surely transformed from a relatively niche property to one that’s slowly burgeoning. With The Witcher: Ronin, Geralt is doing what he does best again; hunting down monsters.

Set apart from the main canon, The Witcher: Ronin is a ‘What If’ story that has the famous monster hunter journey to Japan-inspired lands to hunt down the infamous Lady of Snow, Yuki Onna.

The Witcher: Ronin

On Kickstarter right now, the manga is planned to be 100 pages, with 55 extra pages also added on to the Kickstarter version of The Witcher: Ronin. These pages will contain extra short stories, as well as a short ‘Making Of’ section that’ll delve into the efforts of creating this unique work.

While the cool limited hand-drawn rewards are already gone, if you’re interested in the hardcover manga, you can still get nab the normal editions (along with the Kickstarter exclusive rewards and add-ons) from the Kickstarter page.

I’ll be honest though, at around SG$56 (without shipping) for the most basic tier, this is a pretty expensive book.

For fans of The Witcher though, it should be a no-brainer purchase, especially if they want to see Geralt in a new setting. If you love Geralt and want to see more of him, you’d better get to backing The Witcher: Ronin before its Kickstarter ends September 27.
