Witch Doctor Mal Practice # 4 - Brandon Seifert Lukas Ketner

Written by Arion on Thursday, April 25 2013 and posted in Reviews

Doctor Vincent Morrow knows that desperate times call for desperate measures. But this time not even the most desperate of measures might be enough to guarantee his survival. Eric Gast rescues the doctor and takes him to the one person who can save his life. 

Meanwhile, Penny Dreadful is still a prisoner. With the talisman that neutralizes her powers, her supernatural persona is quickly replaced by her human mind. Tortured by her captors she reminds them that the monster within her will awaken, to the doom of them all.

Witch Doctor is slowly recovering from the attack, but the Strigoi infection that was his main cause of concern is getting worse. In order to treat himself, he sends his astral form to annihilate the larvae that plague his body. With a telekinesis spell, his ethereal manifestation will be able to destroy the mystic infection.

Penny Dreadful

Brandon Seifert keeps on developing multiple subplots, while providing more information about the doctor’s enemies. In two issues this miniseries will end, and for the first time in years I can’t predict what the outcome will be. Thanks to Brandon’s imagination, I know that all of his readers will be surprised.  

Lukas Ketner designs the most fascinating monsters in this issue, but he also excels at reconstructing the microscopic world of Witch Doctor’s body. As the astral form travels through the arteries, the brain and the lungs, we get to see some of the most amazing artwork that has ever graced the pages of a Skybound title.

Inside the doctor's body / dentro del cuerpo del doctor

El doctor Vincent Morrow sabe que en tiempos desesperados, hacen falta medidas desesperadas. Pero esta vez ni siquiera la más desesperada de las medidas podría ser suficiente para garantizar su supervivencia. Eric Gast rescata al doctor y lo lleva a la única persona que puede salvar su vida.

Mientras tanto, Penny Dreadful sigue prisionera. Con el talismán que neutraliza sus poderes, su personalidad sobrenatural es rápidamente reemplazada por su mente humana. Torturada por sus captores, ella les recuerda que el monstruo en su interior se despertará, y eso les traerá la condena a todos.

Witch Doctor se está recuperando lentamente del ataque, pero la infección del Strigoi que era su principal motivo de preocupación está empeorando. Para curarse, envía su forma astral para aniquilar a las larvas que infestan su cuerpo. Con un hechizo de telequinesis, su manifestación etérea será capaz de destruir esta infección mística.

Witch Doctor's astral form / la forma astral de Witch Doctor

Brandon Seifert sigue desarrollando múltiples argumentos, mientras que proporciona más información sobre los enemigos del doctor. En dos números la miniserie terminará, y por primera vez en años no puedo predecir cuál será el desenlace. Gracias a la imaginación de Brandon, sé que todos sus lectores se sorprenderán.

Lukas Ketner diseña a los más fascinantes monstruos en este número, pero también se supera en la reconstrucción del mundo microscópico del cuerpo de Witch Doctor. La forma astral viaja por las arterias, el cerebro y los pulmones, y podemos ver allí el arte más asombroso que ha agraciado las páginas de un título de Skybound.

About the Author - Arion

Arion, who is either from Chile or New York (it’s not really clear) writes a blog that the Outhouse steals on a regular basis.  Arion is by far the nicest of all the staff writers and the most well behaved only having been banned from one country.  One thing we really appreciate about Aroin is that he writes his reviews in English and Spanish and we hope someday he’ll translate this blurb for us.  We’re not so good at languages, just look at how well we write in English if you need proof.  You should bookmark Arion’s blog - – and actually look at it.  There will be a quiz at the end of every month.
