The breakout medical horror hit from ROBERT KIRKMAN's Skybound imprint is back on call!
Even the world's leading expert in supernatural disease needs to unwind sometimes. But when Dr. Morrow wakes up with no memory of what - and who! - he did last night, is it just a case of partying too hard... or something more malignant? (Hint: It's the malignant one!)

"Terrifying, hilarious, and above all else, smart." - The A.V. Club

    On all fronts, Witch Doctor: Mal Practice #1 is a step up for a series that was already hitting all the right notes. This is some can't-miss comic reading right here. Bring on issue #2. Read Full Review

    Little needs to be said about the art except that it is perfect for this story. The monster designs, the look, the atmosphere and just about everything is pretty damn close to perfect " Ketner really, clearly has a love for this. It's a big part of why I'm doing something I rarely do and giving this issue a perfect score.Read it. Now. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - George Shunick Nov 29, 2012

    On the whole, this is an excellent first issue with very few, if any, flaws. The only thing holding it back is that this is the first issue, and so there isnt a lot of weight to the proceedings. Still, thats an extraordinarily minor complaint. This is definitely one to pick up. Read Full Review

    Geekality - Joe Sarnicola Nov 28, 2012

    Writer Brandon Seifert uses understatement skillfully, such as Eric Gast's line about a "false positive," which cracked me up. You'll have to read it for yourself to see what I'm talking about. This book is beautiful and hilarious. Read Full Review

    This first issue of the new Witch Doctor mini brings all kinds of mystery and strangeness to the comics page, and does that in an original and fresh way. I'm so glad the Doctor is in! Read Full Review

    IGN - Poet Mase Nov 28, 2012

    As a continuation of their strong start, Seifert and Ketner deliver a worthwhile new chapter with Witch Doctor: Mal Practice #1. Newcomers may have significant difficulty getting to know the characters, though, since the story presumes a certain degree of familiarity coming into the issue. There were enough creepy moments to tide me over to Mal Practice #2 (including the unexpected STD angle), but I'm looking forward to seeing this tale pick up a bit more steam next month.

    Multiversity Comics - David Harper Nov 30, 2012

    Overall though, this is a decent open for “Witch Doctor: Mal Practice.” We're set up to have a lot of really fun and interesting (character wise) things happen throughout, and any of the problems I had with it could easily be cured in issue two. One way or another, I'm excited the book is back, and I'm looking forward to seeing what's next for the troubled Dr. Morrow. Read Full Review
