    Artists Lukas Ketner and Sunny Gho replicate the lank models of Bernie Wrightson and Michael Kaluta while adding their own macabre style when rendering the creepy faerie mother and the changeling she plants in the crib of unsuspecting parents. These are fantastic nightmares that would have made Lovecraft salivate. Read Full Review

    Fans of horror comics or even fans of intelligent, clever fantasy should be picking this book up. Its a medical drama mixed with the X-Files with a dash of Sherlock Holmes and a healthy dose of H.R. Geiger. If that doesnt appeal to you well youre clearly looking at the wrong review.

    The most obvious comparison to make with Witch Doctor would be Hellblazer. After all, the two seem to be involved in endless supernatural adventures. But this is what Dr. Morrow does for a living; he even has a team of assistants to prove it. Morrows professionalism takes away from the bleakness of the situations he finds himself in, as he has a way of making every twist and turn seem like a normal occurrence. Thats not to say this book doesnt have its fair share of snark, but its not nearly as depressing as the similar Vertigo book. Read Full Review

    This issue did improve on the first and was more enjoyable all round, as well as being more disturbing and freaky. Next issue looks to face Vincent with a very different kind of threat and it will be interesting to see if there is the right balance of all the series key elements; action, humour, brains and scares.
