Swamp Witches

“Shelves filled with jars of items meant for spells and ridiculous concoctions meant to heal bodies, inflict sickness, remove memories and countless other purposes covered most of the walls. The people brave enough to venture out into this part of the swamp and walk through this door were the ones most desperate for an answer.” -Abbi Glines

Gage’s Favorite Comics - Vibe

Today’s Comic: Vibe by Dan “@soulkarl“ Ciurczak

Rating: Young adult (contains swearing, gore, and extreme violence)
Genre: Action
Status: Updates Tuesdays

There are many fascinating subjects that popular fiction rarely seems to make use of. We’ve seen dragons and zombies done over and over (some times done better than others), but you know what concept I’ve barely seen utilized at all?

Voodoo. 

Using voodoo as the seed, Ciurzak has cultivated an epic story. While my personal knowledge of the history and actual practices of voodoo is minimal, the way he uses it in this story is highly interesting. 

The world of Vibe is a colorful one, and not just in the literal sense. It’s full of breath-taking battles punctuated by a richly detailed world that’ll pull you in more and more as it goes on. 

On top of all of that, at it’s core, the comic is a powerful character story. The cast is solid, hitting perfectly in regards to both comedy and drama. Everyone is enjoyable in their own way.

Vibe is an action-packed, colorful, and emotional experience. It builds upon some concepts I already understand with new ideas and fresh takes on others. It’s a must-read.

The time to see what the witch doctors have brewing is now.

I would tell you something even more amazing, but maybe you will find the stages of the path to transfiguration even more entertaining… ^_^
