Witch Doctor Mal Practice # 3 - Brandon Seifert Lukas Ketner

Witch Doctor Mal Practice # 3 - Brandon Seifert Lukas Ketner

By Arion in Reviews on March 30, 2013

  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

Review: The Goon Volume 1 Nothin' But Misery

Review: The Goon Volume 1 Nothin' But Misery

By Rui Esteves in Reviews on March 29, 2013

Cover The Goon and Frankie are back in action in Nothin' But Misery, written and drawn by Eric Powell and published by Dark Horse. This first volume collect issues #1 to #4, The Goon Color Special and the short story Die Fish Die. In this volume the Goon and Frankie have to deal with Zombies (of course), Alien Mook, Haunted Houses, Fishy Pete, ancient revenges and Santa Claus. How is it? Eric Powell continues the saga of the Goon and his pal Frankie, this time with Dark Horse. And it all starts with our good friend Fishy Pete in Die Fish Die. What?! You don't know Fishy Pete? Well, he's a dock worker that opposes the Labrazio's Mob presence in the docks. Still don't remember him? Then go read my Volume 0 review. This time Fishy Pete strikes back at the Goon. Basically it goes as well as you're imagining, but with some very hilarious and Monty Python ish moments. In the first chapter the Goon will learn two important lessons. First and foremost loony old people that play in the mud know a hole lot of stuff, secondly haunted houses are no laughing matter. As fate as it the Goon and Frankie stumble upon an old treasure buried deep in a haunted house by some low life a few years before. Yes Goon, you can touch Eric choose to write this book with episodic short or issue long stories, that are, for the most part, interchangeable with each other. While the weak continuity and lack of a strict reading order might turn some comic book readers off, I love it here. Eric does a great job coming up with original, albeit a bit gimmicky, ideas that keep the light humor and heavy action rolling and far from stale. So the second chapter is a new story, and this time is for an old foe of the Goon to inhabit the body of an Ogre and seek revenge. Needless to say there will be fist-a-cups, blood, tears and inflatable chickens. Also, contrary to popular mythos, this Ogre is very well-spoken, much more than our hero and galaxies more than Frankie. Question: Have you ever asked yourself how Eric would incorporate a Ghost Rider, Phantom Stranger or Crimson Avenger type of concept into The Goon? No? Me neither, but Eric did and the result is in the third chapter of this book. The ending is somewhat predictable but that didn't stop me from enjoying this odd but entertaining story. Fishy Pete The Goon Christmas Story. This alone should make you want to read it. But if you have to know more, then here it goes. Evil elves, badass cowboy Santa, hot lady in red, frozen zombies and gift giving Goon. The forth and (almost) last chapter is the weakest . During a night out on the town with his girlfriend Frankie gets kidnapped by a magician and his evil assistants. Then Goon goes to the rescue. Its not a bad story but its not quite up to par with the previous ones. Last but not least there is a short story about an Alien Mook that comes to Earth to conquer some turf and get down to business. Well, being a short story there isn't much to talk about, but I can say one thing... I laughed hard when the punchline came. Verdict? Overall this is a fun and entertaining book. I had high expectation and I wasn't disappointed. Eric kept the writing cool, funny and dynamic and the art constant in quality and always a delight to see. If you've read the Goon and didn't like it, then this is not for your. If you never read the Goon then this is a good jump in point. If you're a fan then you should already own it. Recommended.
