The Witcher: Colour in Geralt-in-the-bath with real pencils

The Witcher colouring book

The Witcher franchise is now getting an adult colouring book. It’s adult in two senses – one is the sense of colouring books aimed at adults as a relaxation method being a rising trend in the last few years and the other is the sense where you get a picture of Geralt in the nuddy in that tub to colour in. His witcher junk is hidden beneath the water but it’s not really the sort of fare you find in the Dr Seuss Colouring Book or the My Very Own Hungry Caterpillar Colouring Book.

The project is a collaboration with Dark Horse and the blurb says:

“Journey along with Geralt, Ciri, Triss, Yennefer, Roach, Shani, and all of your favorite Witcher characters in a variety of fantastic settings . . . all inspired by the hit video game franchise with The Witcher Adult Coloring Book. Featuring uniquely designed and highly detailed black-and-white illustrations inspired by the games; this compilation of exquisitely crafted images is a must-have for Witcher fans worldwide!”

It looks like the RRP is set at $14.99 but there are various pre-order discounts prior to the 1 November release date.

I feel like this really isn’t the first adult colouring book/videogame tie in? Ah – there’s a Destiny colouring book coming out on 13 August, but I’m so sure there was one which caused a flurry a year or two ago?

Anyway:

You nerds can wait for the print version but I’m starting in on that tweeted picture right now:

    I assume I’m not the only one who finds the Spot cartoons a bizarre, trippy world of strangeness?

      I noticed he was attempting to drown that rubber ducky. Over and over again.

      When he becomes an adult hes probably going to become a serial drowner. (and to fit the Witcher theme, he will probably die, and become some sort of evil spirit, clinging to the shores where he murdered people, forlorn for all eternity.)

    God, the proportions in the bathtub pic are just wrong! I’m sorry but Gerald looks like a freak in that drawing… Stumpy arms, legs seem too far apart for the opening angle…

    Don’t know about causing a flurry, but Warcraft had one.
