It's a sick world.
Literally -- the universe is an organism, and the creatures of myth and folklore are invading parasites, preying on the native species and disrupting the ordered systems of the world.
It's a sick world, and Dr. Vincent Morrow's here to treat it. Headhunted into an exciting new career in the black arts after his excommunication from the medical community, Morrow serves the world with both hands -- one in magic, one in medicine -- as earth's protector. Earth's Witch Doctor.
Witch Doctor is a medical horror comic written by Brandon Seifert and illustrated by Lukas Ketner.
"One guy I'm real excited about is Lukas Ketner... [Witch Doctor is] a great book, and they [Seifert and Ketner] have a lot of talent.” - Scott Allie, Dark Horse Senior Mangaging Editor
"Witch Doctor is awesome. It's House, M.D. by way of H.P. Lovecraft. Witty, gross, gorgeously drawn and just plain fun." - Brett Warnock, publisher, Top Shelf
"Any true horror fan should keep their eyes on Seifert and Ketner." - Mike Dringenberg (co-creator of The Sandman)
"There should be more horror comics like Witch Doctor. It's got the gross outs, and the cool characters, but it has ideas, too. It's a horror comic where they got a good artist and then thought, 'Oh man, what if we got a good writer too?' And that puts them a big leg up." - Joey Comeau, A Softer World
"Lukas Ketner [is] a fast rising star in the world of illustration." - Publishers Weekly's The Beat
"I was instantly reminded of a childhood spent reading classic horror comics like Creepy and Eerie... [Seifert and Ketner's] real-world medical/zoological approach is really intriguing!" — Vampire bat biologist Bill Schutt (Dark Banquet: Blood and the Curious Lives of Blood-Feeding Creatures)
"The kind of comics we need more of... If you're not reading Witch Doctor, I have no recourse but to seriously question your taste in comics." - Rantz Hoseley, creator of Vix!, Displaced Petsons and editor of Comic Book Tattoo
