Review- Witchcraft


WITCHCRAFT (Vertigo/ DC, 1996; Softcover)

Collects Witchcraft Nos. 1-3 (cover dates: June- August, 1994)

Writer: James Dale Robertson

Artists: Teddy H. Kristiansen, Peter Snjejberg, Steve Yeowell, and Michael Zulli

This was another one of those real world comic shop finds. I flipped through it and was intrigued by the whole witches/black magic/witchcraft/past-present-future lives vibe, and the artwork looked solid enough. Each of the three issues has a different artist, with the artist in Issue 1 being the best. Indeed, Kristiansen's artwork is the best thing this side of Alan Davis. This is a decent read that is worth checking out.


The OCD zone- These older DC/ Vertigo trades have much nicer paper than the later printings do. DC has always been penny wise, pound foolish with their book trade program, and most sheeple don't have enough commitment to quality to give a rat's ass. The paper is a coated stock and is worlds better than the toilet paper DC passes off in their modern Vertigo trades.
