    Multiversity Comics - Matthew Meylikhov Apr 23, 2013

    It might be a bit unfair to say, but it's possible that “Witch Doctor” is simply an acquired taste. It's a comedic book, but it has a rather dry wit. It's a horror book, but it doesn't really fit into any traditional tropes within horror. The writing and the art isn't like that you'll find in your average comic book, all of it very much being rather singular to this book. In the wide world of comics, that's definitely one of the highest compliments we can give; there is nothing else quite like “Witch Doctor,” and until the next volume hits the stands that will remain a fact of life.

    Unleash The Fanboy - Russell Johnson Apr 23, 2013

    Seifert's solution for Morrow's seemly final defeat could come off as a cop-out but given the dire circumstances, the simple brilliance of the Morrow's plan comes off as a no-brainer. If you like horror, magic and well-timed humor, give Witch Doctor: Mal Practice a try. None of these genres is generally my cup of tea but this creative team sucked me in without much of a fight. True fans should find this, diamond in the rough, a perfect fit. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Aaron Duran Apr 24, 2013

    Witch Doctor - Mal Practice has been an incredibly enjoyable arc. Although it had one or two bumps along the way, the series brings itself to a wholly satisfying ending. An ending that in no way cheapens the reader with a tease, yet still makes darn sure you want more from these characters. While their debut arc was strong, there is no doubt, Mal Practice solidifies both Seifert and Ketner as some of comics' fastest-rising stars. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Augie De Blieck Jr. Apr 24, 2013

    "Witch Doctor: Mal Practice" solves the case ably, using up its entire cast in a way that satisfyingly ends the mini-series in a clever way while still giving the reader plenty to chew on. Seifert and Ketner tell their tale in a way that never loses the reader, but welcomes them in and gives them a sharp dose of craziness and character. It can be a tough sell if you're not into the horror genre, but it's worth a try. There's a lot to recommend this comic for, above and beyond the genre it starts in. Read Full Review

    Only a matter of time remains before this series gets picked up for a television or movie deal. And it deserves it. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - Jorge Solis Apr 25, 2013

    “Witch Doctor: Mal Practice” #6 ties up loose threads, while leaving things open-ended for the next story arc. The “Witch Doctor” series remains an entertaining read, which is why I look forward to what Seifert and Ketner will come up with for the next story arc. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Jason Sacks May 1, 2013

    This comic hit all kinds of happy glands for me. The supernatural action is awesome, the mystical villains are horrible and gross and so goddamn cool, Lukas's art displays his usual Loony Tunes meets Marvel Comics style that makes the whole book a rhapsody of breathless thrills and excitement, every character gets their perfect moment of spotlight in this comic, the book turns on a scene where the good guy urinates in everybody's water, and wow I think I have a serious crush on Catrina Macabrey, the mysterious sexy MILF of mysticism.

    . . $3,22pgs. All ADs@back! Terribly Toxic Cover. . . . Mal practice comes to a close with a lot of action and even more beatings for our MD. The art continues to impress me, and i will be on the lookout for Lukas Ketner's next project. Hopefully, more WitchDoctor! Also a wonderful effort thought the series by Andy Troy on colors. Brandon Seifert has my thanks for another great WitchDoctor Mini-series, i can only hope he has another planned. Creepy, funny, twisted, goofy and crazy imaginative stuff.
