    So I might end up taking this down shortly, but... why not?

    This summer me and my (Russ Manning Award-nominated) collaborator Lukas Ketner released another story for our horror/medical drama comic Witch Doctor. Lukas drew it in a different art style than the first one we did... and, for various reasons (involving editors at potential publishers), he decided to redraw it.

    We're not entirely sure what we're going to do with the redrawn story. It may get colored and put in an anthology. But until we figure out what's going on with it, I figured there wouldn't be any harm in sharing it with you folks. You all were some of our earliest, strongest supporters (and Warren himself has been very, very nice to us, putting up with me plugging the comic on a nigh-weekly basis on here and even plugging us in a recent DO ANYTHING), and I wanted to share this with you.

    If you insist on owning a hard copy (I know, twist my arm, right?), some will be available for online mail order after we get them printed for APE.

    Edit: Yep, I took it down.

    Heh. I know it's supposed to be a horror comic, but it's totally adorable. :)

    I want to see more of this character. A lot more.

    Worth it just for the concept of "the Golem equivalent of antibiotic-resistant staph infection". Fantastic work!

    Thanks Gekko, Roo and johnplatt!

    Jess — We want the comic to be a multi-genre thing, so this one was an action/comedy. We'll be going the distance to try to scare you in other installments.

    John_Bivens — Thanks buddy!

    curb — Good to hear! Hopefully we'll have pleasant announcements to make about that before the end of the year.

    Purple Wyrm — That was one of the most fun things about writing this story for me — it's basically a fight scene, and then at the end you find out the fight scene was just a metaphor for an important principle in medicine. But it's a fight scene!

    @Brandon I enjoyed it tons, thanks for sharing. Somehow my earlier comment went away. Email before you head to APE.

    @stsparky — I saw your first comment, and got confused when it vanished. I don't have your e-mail anymore; shoot me one at

    I have no problems with a horror comic that alternates between adorable and terrifying. Bring it on! :)

    Brilliant, that! Definately prefer the redrawn version - looks a lot closer to the original, bringing back all the detail and sharpness.
    • CommentTimeSep 28th 2009
    Excellent! I was hooked after I saw the first one. Hungry for more! :D
    • CommentTimeSep 28th 2009
    Thanks for sharing - the first issue sharp black and white style suits the comic a lot better. But you know what would suit it even more? A publisher and monthly issues! In the meantime, just let me know of any way and time I can pay for more of it, and it will be done.

    Awesome, glad I clicked that link! Very entertaining, I was smiling the whole time, and I agree with some of the above, it looks excellent in black and white.

    Gorgeous stuff, guys. The sheer profusion of ideas, considering the number of pages, is just--- WOW, y'know?
    Pages 1, 3, 7 and 8 are especially sublime. It's a crime this doesn't have a publisher already. Really.
