Witch Doctor Mal Practice # 5 - Brandon Seifert Lukas Ketner
Witch Doctor is forced to fight against a microscopic dragon that is already starting to destroy his lungs; using every spell at his disposal, the doctor is finally able to defeat this uncanny threat. Now, however, he can’t take a few days to rest. In fact, he must attack his opponents with the help of Gast and the mysterious woman who infected him on the first chapter of this miniseries.

Together, this motley crew are able to track down the whereabouts of Penny Dreadful, who is been held captive by the doctor’s nemesis. Using the same syringe that we saw for the first time in the cover of Witch Doctor # 0 (published in the Walking Dead # 85 in 2011), Doctor Vincent Morrow finally catches his enemy off guard, but will this surprise attack be enough?

Lukas Ketner has some truly amazing pages here. First of all, there’s a recap page that defies any conventio-nalism: we get to see an illustration that seems to come out from the pages of a forgotten book of medicine / anatomy that reveals the nature of the Strigoi, and then instead of the classic square panels we have a series of circles that almost roll out of the page in which we witness the ordeals of Doctor Vincent Morrow. 

The battle between Witch Doctor and his lung-dragon is also fantastic, as it is the scene of the confrontation between Gast and the Strigoi that infected the Doctor. Finally, the fight between the protagonists and the antagonists is quite memorable. There’s only one issue left before the end, and I’m sure it’ll be greater than I expect.

Witch Doctor se ve forzado a pelear contra un dragón microscopico que ya está empezando a destruir sus pulmones; usando todos los hechizos a su disposición, el doctor es finalmente capaz de derrotar a esta siniestra amenaza. Ahora, sin embargo, no puede tomarse un par de días para descansar. De hecho, debe atacar a sus oponentes con la ayuda de Gast y la misteriosa mujer que lo infectó en el primer capítulo de esta miniserie. 

Juntos, este extraño grupo es capaz de rastrear el paradero de Penny Dreadful, quien sigue capturada a manos del némesis del doctor. Usando la misma jeringa que vimos por primera vez en la portada de Witch Doctor # 0 (publicado en "The Walking Dead" # 85, el 2011), el doctor Vincent Morrow finalmente agarra a su enemigo con la guardia baja, pero ¿será suficiente este ataque sorpresa?

Lukas Ketner tiene algunas páginas realmente asombrosas. En primer lugar, la página de recuento desafía todos los conven-cionalismos: vemos una ilustración que parece salir de las páginas de algún olvidado libro de medicina / anatomía que revela la naturaleza del Strigoi, y luego en vez de las clásicas viñetas rectangulares tenemos una serie de círculos que casi ruedan por la página en la que observamos los padecimientos del doctor Vincent Morrow. 

La batalla entre Witch Doctor y su dragón de pulmón es también fantástica, al igual que la escena de confrontación entre Gast y el Strigoi que infectó al doctor. Finalmente, la pelea entre los protagonistas y los antagonistas es bastante memorable. Sólo queda un número antes del final, y estoy seguro que será mejor de lo que imagino.

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.
