Editorial Reviews

Review

"...the epitome of following strength with strength. The second volume has everything I loved about book one -- witty dialog, ghastly creeps from the netherhells, grotesque fight-scenes, and the monster-as-hero thing I've loved since I was a kid -- but more, more, more!" -Cory Doctorow, Boing Boing

"Original. Fun. Stylish and offbeat. You won't be disappointed." -Clive Barker

"Like an exceptional second season of a television show, MAL PRACTICE builds on what came before while taking the series in exciting new directions." -Oliver Sava, The A.V. Club

"What happens when you take TV shows like House and Fringe, get them really drunk, lock them in a room together, and blast some of Barry White's greatest hits? We'll give you a hint. It begins with 'Witch' and ends with 'Doctor'... a unique combination of spine-tingling terror and medical drama." -Ryan Rigley, MTV Splashpage

"Holy ****, this is good! ...is a fun, action-packed, dark arts-laden gem of a comic, and I can't wait to read future issues." -Giaco Furino, FEARnet

His Snarkiness has returned to warn us all about the dangers of spellborne illnesses.

Watch as The Doctor and Penny Dreadful battle a boatload of new enemies - a devilish medicine show trio, blood-sucking phantasms, vengeful Egyptian gods, golems, an assortment of beings with "glowy eyes", and Charlotte Fever, a gal with a bad case of centipede tongue.

Watch out for the sinister Surgeons! Looking not unlike the Cenobites from 'Hellraiser', they only want to HEAL YOU!

One of the things I love most about the Doc is that even when he's using the Diablosuction machine, he's never too busy to debate theology:

"The Gods are our shepherds," claims Catrina Macabrey, pathologist and the Doctor's future ex-wife.

Shepherds don't tend sheep because they're NICE GUYS. They do it for the FLEECE AND MUTTON," he replies.

Next to 'Chew' and 'Preacher', this is my favorite graphic novel series, and probably the ONLY book to ever use the phrase ...floaty cluster of umbilical guts.

More exquisite horror and humor from the twisted shadows of Brandon Seifert's brain. If you liked the first volume, you'll surely love this one even more forcibly. Unique and fun stories, exquisite art and a wry wit accompany fresh and incisive ideas on old horror classic concepts.

I devoured this book and have recommended it to all my friends who have shown any slight interest in enjoyable fiction.

The only flaw I found in this book is that same feeling of let down after Christmas is over. Isn't there any more?

The next volume can't come soon enough.

Good continuation of the series. The art in this graphic novel is amazing and the story is really clever and well done, it's got a lot of action and some mystery to it. The characters are also very well written and you want to know more about them all.
If you liked the first book I would definitely suggest buying this one as it is definitely worth the read.

This is an excellent extension of the Witch Doctor universe.

I enjoyed the overall story-arc and I especially loved how Seifert teased out the characters of Eric Gast and Penny Dreadful to make them more complex and endearing. For me, they're what makes waiting for the next installment harder to do, especially when the creators aren't sure when they'll be able to return to the story.

Witch Doctor volumes 1 and 2 are well contained, artful, and still are able to be part of a greater conversation. I recommend this series to those who enjoy sci-fi blended with horror, on top of classic American gothic literature the likes of Nathaniel Hawthorne, Edgar Allen Poe, and (of course) H.P. Lovecraft, then sprinkled with tongue-in-cheek humor.

Format: Paperback
After their debut mini-series "Under the Knife" and the one-shot "Resurrection", Seifert and Ketner kick it up a notch in this well-paced adventure that expands the scientific/magical dynamics of the Witch Doctor world. This series is well-deserved of the heaps of critical acclaim it has accumulated. I would recommend it to anyone with even a passing interest in the macabre, speculative pseudo-science, horror and mystery genres. Witch Doctor is that rare creation that excels at weaving these disparate threads into a cohesive tapestry that expands and enhances the appeal of it's component parts. So many stand-out scenes, quotes and concepts permeate this narrative, but the hero's inspired resolution of the climactic conflict is worth the price of admission all on its own.

I have been on board with Witch Doctor since the first time I saw the promo poster for Witch Doctor #1's release. After reading the first story arc, I drove my brother crazy until he read it and loved it, turned customers onto it at work (I worked at a comic book shop and sold many, many trades.) When Witch Doctor Mal Practice #1 came out almost a year after Resuscitation's release, my brother (who now worked at the comic store,) and I both jumped up and down with excitement. It had finally arrived! The second Witch Doctor mini series did not disappoint. The artwork was beautiful, and the story makes you laugh out loud with Dr. Morrow's snarky comments. I absolutely adore this series, and cannot wait to see what they do next!

The first _Witch Doctor_ was a collection of stories of Dr. Morrow helping people with their magical afflictions. This second volume, Dr. Morrow is his own patient. The series is a run through the good Doctor trying to find a cure for his affliction.

So much fun. We get to see more depth to Dr. Morrow than the confident showman from the first series. More peeks behind the curtain of the magical world.

Awesomer than the first one. I jumped on each digital issue as it was released.

I originally purchased this for my boyfriend (after he picked up Vol. 1 himself), because it's everything that appeals to him: a comic book, a rather morbid sense of humor, a tale of eldritch horrors, and the hero is actually a medical doctor (my boyfriend is also in the medical field)!

He didn't tell me all that, though. I took a look out of curiosity, and despite not having a clue about anything medical, I loved it too. As did a very picky friend of ours. The lot of us have actually ended up in friendly debates about certain details.
