Official Press Release

Robert Kirkman's Skybound imprint at Image Comics introduced WITCH DOCTOR earlier this year among showers of praise from critics, prompting i09 to describe it as "eminently entertaining" and Fangoria to dub the series “a superbly smart and riveting medical thriller."

Much to fans' delight at San Diego's Comic-Con in July, newcomers Brandon Seifert and Lukas Ketner announced that the summer’s medical horror smash hit will return this December with a one shot tale of black magic and organ-swapping in the upcoming WITCH DOCTOR: THE RESUSCITATION.

"I've got a huge list of story ideas for WITCH DOCTOR — and THE RESUSCITATION is one I've been looking forward to doing for years," said Seifert. "It's fun and strange, and it does the trick of being a good introduction to the series while also setting the stage for our next storyline. And on top of that, Lukas gets to draw some really awesome monsters and stuff, which is pretty much the point of doing this series!"

"We're excited to expand on the first miniseries, and this story definitely hits some new high notes," added Ketner. "If you love reading about the supernatural as much as I love drawing it, then you won't want to miss this... or the rest of the series!"

Offering a great jumping on point for new readers, WITCH DOCTOR: THE RESUSCITATION will ask important questions of its readers. For instance, if you wake up in a bathtub of ice with a surgical incision on your side, but the hospital says you’ve still got two kidneys, where do you go for a second opinion? To the expert, Dr. Vincent Morrow, WITCH DOCTOR, of course!

WITCH DOCTOR: THE RESUSCITATION, a 32-page full-color medical horror one shot comic for $2.99, will be on sale in stores December 14 and will be available for order in the upcoming October issue of Previews.
