    Weekly Comic Book Review - Dean Stell Sep 27, 2011

    This series got a fair amount of buzz with issue #1 a few months ago, but I hadn't seen much chatter since then and it's a sad comment on the comic industry that we're more interested in hyping what is NEW than what can maintain our interest beyond a catchy first issue. Witchdoctor is awesome. Cool story with big ideas and incredible art. Check it out! Read Full Review

    People who haven't tried this book yet, this could almost serve as a first issue, establishing the universe very firmly and telling a fine story in the process. Ketner's artwork continues to walk that line between fanciful, horrific, and biologically sound. This is an excellent book, and I'm just sitting around waiting for the announcement of volume two.

    If there's one complaint that I have for this book, it's that Seifert is still a little too in love with showing everyone how smart he is. Overall, though, this series keeps getting stronger with every issue. If you haven't jumped on board yet, make sure you pick up the back issues while you still can! Read Full Review

    Vincent Morrow the Witch Doctor reports to an occult licensing board and relates the details of his most recent case: the Fish Man captured by Absinthe O'Riley, the Witch Doctor's River Song. The current issue of Witch Doctor offers an interesting interpretation of the Deep Ones, legendary Cthulhu disciples, created by of course H.P. Lovecraft in the short story "The Shadow Over Innsmouth." Along the way, we discover a decidedly alien origin for life on this planet, Penny Dreadful's unusual nature, which is filled with black comedy and the mettle of the good doctor's sword. HINT: he pulled it from a stone. Read Full Review
