The tribulations of the hero can be many. Some writers will create easy problems for their characters to solve; others, however, will literally torture their protagonists in order to entertain us, the readers. As if we were in the Roman Coliseum, thirsty for blood and death. But, in the end, aren’t our favorite stories those in which the stakes are high and victory no longer seems to be a possibility? Certainly, in the third issue of Witch Doctor, Brandon Seifert does precisely that. He places Doctor Vincent Morrow in an almost impossible situation. And he raises the stakes, and failure seems the most possible outcome. And it all works quite nicely. Because, as readers, we experience the desperation of the protagonist and the obstacles he must surmount. And the doctor isn’t the only one who is in problems. For the first time ever, Penny Dreadful, the invincible secret weapon, is subdued. At the end of the issue, the only man standing up is Eric Gast, but will he have enough resources to prevail? Penny Dreadful defeated / Penny Dreadful derrotada As I have mentioned before, Lukas Ketner does a terrific job as penciler and inker of the series. Just a look at his suggestive cover tells us a lot about the risks the doctor will face in this issue, while making us remember all the Voodoo related folklore. The interior art, as usual, is superb. The fighting sequence between an army of Golems and Penny Dreadful is great, and so is the big panel in which we see her laying down, defeated, unconscious and with a powerful talisman in her neck. Another example of visual creativity comes when the enemy reveals his true self, and his companions shed their false skin, their human disguise, to appear as what they truly are: demonic monsters that defy our imagination. Of course, the scene in which we see Eric, completely alone, trying to hold his ground against a horde of monsters is quite memorable. There are only three issues left before the end of the miniseries, and I’m sure they’ll be amazing. ___________________________________________________________ ___________________________________________________________ the real enemy / el verdadero enemigo Las tribulaciones del héroe pueden ser muchas. Algunos escritores crearán problemas fáciles de resolver para sus personajes; otros, sin embargo, literalmente torturarán a sus personajes para entretenernos a nosotros, los lectores. Como si estuviésemos en el coliseo romano, sedientos de sangre y muerte. Pero, al final, ¿nuestras historias favoritas no son aquellas en las que todo está en riesgo y la victoria parece imposible? Ciertamente, en el tercer número de "Witch Doctor", Brandon Seifert hace precisamente eso. Coloca al doctor Vincent Morrow en una situación casi imposible. El riesgo aumenta, y el fracaso parece un desenlace probable. Y todo encaja muy bien. Porque, como lectores, experimentamos la desesperación del protagonista y los obstáculos que debe superar. Eric Gast Y el doctor no es el único en problemas. Por primera vez, Penny Dreadful, la invencible arma secreta, es sometida. Al final, el único hombre en pie es Eric Gast, ¿pero tendrá los recursos necesarios para prevalecer? Como he mencionado antes, Lukas Ketner hace un trabajo estupendo como dibujante a lápiz y a tinta. Sólo una mirada a su sugerente portada nos dice mucho sobre los riesgos que enfrentará el doctor en este número, mientras que nos hace recordar el folklor vudú. El arte interior, como siempre, es soberbio. La secuencia de lucha entre un ejército de golems y Penny Dreadful es grandiosa, y también lo es la viñeta grande en la que podemos verla sobre el piso, derrotada, inconsciente y con un poderoso talismán en el cuello. Otro ejemplo de creatividad visual está en la forma en que el enemigo revela su verdadera identidad, al desprenderse de su piel falsa, de su disfraz humano: son monstruos demoníacos que desafían nuestra imaginación. Por supuesto, la escena en la vemos a Eric, completamente solo, tratando de defenderse contra una horda de monstruos es más que memorable. Sólo quedan tres números para que termine la miniserie, y estoy seguro que serán asombrosos. Originally Published at http://artbyarion.blogspot.com/2013/03/witch-doctor-mal-practice-3-brandon.html
