CD Projekt RED will quickly be operating a Kickstarter marketing campaign for onerous copies of the manga’s collector’s version.

“An original comic set in an ancient-Japanese-inspired world where monster slayer Geralt trails the mythical Lady of Snow Yuki Onna,” reads the Kickstarter description.

Speaking to IGN, Jaki mentioned that the manga will inform a standalone “Elseworld” story.

“I personally love the new monsters and folk tales we can experiment with,” mentioned Jaki. “Both Europe and Japan have a unique tradition in this area, and bringing iconic Japanese stories and monsters and fitting them in a Witcher context was the most exciting thing for me. We took cues from other Elseworld comics where, for example in Superman Red Son even though Superman lands in the CCCP instead of Kansas, [in the] U.S. he is still called Superman — it’s an artistic license that allows people to have fun with the concept and understand it easily.”

A launch window has but to be introduced.
