Bad Medicine #5

Written by Nunzio DeFilippis and Christina Weir
Art by Christopher Mitten

I'm not sure what's going on with this series.  It was launched as an on-going, and the second issue ended with a scene in South America that was used to set up an upcoming story, but which has not been addressed yet.  The thing is, there haven't been any new issues solicited past this one, and I'm not sure if the book is taking a hiatus, or if this is the end of it.

Bad Medicine is a good comic.  It chronicles the adventures of a loosely-organized group of scientists, doctors, and a police officer, who are being sent by the CDC to investigate occurrences of 'bad medicine'.  This arc involves a werewolf outbreak in a remote Maine town.

This issue finishes that arc, and does it quite well.  Dr. Horne has been the most interesting character in this series, and he arrives at a new point in his character arc this issue as he addresses some of his personal weaknesses in order to solve the current problem.

DeFilippis and Weir are strong writers of character, and they continue to put those strengths to good use with this series.  I would like to read more Bad Medicine, and so hope that the series is continuing.
