I'm probably never going to be able to watch Disney's The Princess and the Frog with the girls again. Or maybe I will, but I'll just giggle a lot when the bad guy shows up.
Because that guy (I can never remember his name) looks just like the Loa of death in this.
Yeah, I'm sure Disney made him look like the Loa guy on purpose. Authenticity and all.
And that's cool, except the death-dude in this thing kept saying that he wanted a fucky-fuck...quick-quick!
So. I'm sure I'll be able to keep a straight
It seems almost unfair to rate Dominique Laveau, Voodoo Child based upon the 7 issues released by Vertigo before its cancellation. The problem for me is whether or not to rate the series on what it could have been if it had been given the time to develop its storyline and flesh out its characters, or to rate it based upon what we've got.

I wish this series had continued. It is written with insight and a fearless quality that seems all too real at times. beautiful and terrifying.
Two stars, just. Story did too much jumping around and was hard to follow. Way too much dialogue. Got better towards the end. One star for being set in N'Awlins.
Liked the story art and characters for the most part. The New Orleans setting is better used here than in a majority of comics.
A little disappointing, well a lot disappointing. Too bad because it has the potential to be a really good story.
