Witch Doctor – The Resuscitation (One Shot) (MR) SKYBOUND – Image Comics


The Writing Brandon Seifert, The Art Lukas Ketner, The Colors Andy Troy, The Editor Sina Grace (Skybound / Image Comics)

From the comic:
“It’s a sick world – LITERALLY. The universe is a living thing, and the monsters of legend are its parasites… but Dr. Vincent Morrow is on the case! Dr. Morrow’s on a quest to understand the supernatural using every tool at his disposal, magical and medical. It’s a sick world – He’s here to treat it.”

Hot on the heels of last years four issue mini Dr. Morrow is back with an organ swapping, dead raising mystery.

This is a horror comic, or is it? It’s definitely occult and it does get gory but that’s where the similarities end. This book is more of an occult action adventure a la Dr. House. Morrow is acerbic, obnoxious, always right and pretty damn brilliant. With his assistants / partners Eric Gast a Paramedic and Penny, Dr. Morrow’s Patient and Anesthesiologist, he investigates all manner of mystical medical maladies. This book is definitely different, I’ve read a lot of horror comics but the direction Seifert takes with this character is unique. The art is mesmerizing it’s one of the books I reread just because the imagery is so intense.

This book is a great starting point for new readers, Dr. Morrow is gross, interesting, good fun.

Check it out at your local comic shop this week!
