Witch Doctor volumes 01 & 02 is Serious Bat Country Medicine

Witch Doctor Vol. 1

Witch Doctor Vol. 1

Witch Doctor is crazy, cunning, man.  Not since Warren Ellis’ Transmetropolitan has there been a comic that’s so wonderfully captured the mind-altered, frenetic, hyper-sanity of Hunter S. Thompson’s writing.  Well, now that we have Witch Doctor, we can all feel better about our lives because we know that things are in good hands.  This title is seriously over all edges, off the hook, off the chain, gonzo and well, fun.

Witch Doctor’s protagonist, Dr. Vincent Morrow is Dr. Strange on the good stuff.  He’s a medical practitioner that aids patients with supernatural ailments like vampiric infections and demonic possessions – oh, and he’s also a potential world-saviour that carries Excalibur.

Morrow’s first assistant, Eric Gast is an ex-military man and EMT just learning about the magic world and carrying around his own dark-problems.  Morrow’s second assistant and anesthesiologist is also one of his patients, Penny Dreadful – she’s a possessed Wolverine without his silly new compunctions and cooler claws.

In Witch Doctor, writer, Brandon Seifert has certainly provided us with a lot of unusually unique characters and a trippy, bloody-gory, dark backdrop for Lovecraftian and classical monster madness.  Lukas Ketner’s art stands out from the crowd and easily captures all of the filth necessary to make this book fun to see.

While Witch Doctor is certainly a lot of mind-expanding fun, I honestly don’t want to catch any supernatural infections because I worry that the cure could be worse.  Go read this book to stay informed about sexually transmitted supernatural infections.
