    Witch Doctor is tied to Robert Kirkman of Walking Dead under the Image umbrella. Unless you're a naked native of the Outback I know you've at least heard of The Walking Dead. Theirs is the comic to television success story that all others will be measured by. I think Witch Doctor can make that jump just a successfully, but it will take the fans to make it happen.

    Image has been giving creators some awesome chances in creating short series' and Witch Doctor Mal Practice is just another solid example of that. In the end, I have to say that this comic was a great read and could very well convince most readers to dive in and purchase the rest of the issues. So readers be warned, if you read this comic you may be putting a deeper whole into your pocket (certainly worth it for this comic!). Read Full Review

    The last time we reviewed this title, it had a brief stumble, but the last two issues have proven that those problems were the exception and not the rule. It's very cool to see two creators that are so committed to a title that they built from nothing and brought to the big stage of comics. Seifert and Ketner have shown once again that they are capable of bringing this subgenre to even larger realms of popular consciousness. Read Full Review

    _$3, 22pgs; all ADs @ back___ .Im still enjoying this series quite a bit, And even more then the last series. It moves on with the Dr's self-treatment into some conflict with the top creeps, moving the story forward well. Brandon Seifert brings all the witty banter and fun of previous issues, and a great astral battle. i love how WitchDoctor builds and sticks with its Mythos so well. It is really grounded and well developed, pulling me into believing and understanding the supernatural their way, even when it can be such a humorous book. Lukas Ketner's art continues to impress and i love his little details and layouts. Some very nice colors from Andy Troy, creating great mood but bight still colorful and not too dark.
