    Witch Doctor is a forthcoming medical horror comic from writer Brandon Seifert and artist Lukas Ketner. Witch Doctor combines horror archetypes and really sick shit from the real world. This is the book's workblog. For more information, read the first entry.

    Lukas is working on a pin-up of our protagonist Dr. Vincent Morrow, the eponymous Witch Doctor. He's been spending a lot of time on it, and wanted to show my how the figure looks before he finishes the background... and the drawing stunned me so much I just had to share it.

    Lukas Ketner's third take on Dr. Vincent Morrow

    A few words about Lukas. Like me, he's an Alaskan expatriate currently based in Portland, Oregon (although I'm from Fairbanks and he's from Anchorage). He's a professional illustrator whose work graces the covers and interior pages of Portland's two alt-weekly newspapers almost every week. Because he's AWESOME. Go look at his portfolio. Or just the album art he did for Portland funeral folk band The Builders and the Butchers:


    I am incredibly lucky to have Lukas illustrating my first comic.

    Is Dr. Morrow a mild play on the name of Dr.Moreau, from H.G. Wells' book?
  3.  (731.3)
    Actually, no. I didn't even notice the resemblance for a long time.

    But I *may* have to use that in some way...

    Have you read the book? I'm rather fond of the island of dr.Moreau.
  5.  (731.5)
    I actually haven't. I saw the '90s movie version, and it was terrible, but it got me interested in the story. So I should definitely seek it out at some point.

    Brandon-
    Yep my project involves a comic. One of many half-formed fetal projects not yet ready to share with the world. I'll probably post something here once it starts getting anywhere decent.

    Yeah, I'm not ready to share what role kuru might play in Witch Doctor yet either. That Vitamin euphoria thing might be useful though -- do you have any links for it?

    Brandon- not finding links at the moment; it might've been the toxicity you mentioned finding earlier.

    This lj group might prove helpful.

    Due to the nature of what you've written so far, I expect there'll be some similarities between our works just due to the subject matters at hand and wouldn't mind comparing end products and see where we take the source material we have, and how the products differ.

    If Cannibalism is a major topic in your tale, Crimelibrary.com might also prove an interesting resource.

    I wish you the best of luck with bringing your tale to the public.
