    Overview

    The concept of Voodoo as an evil art involving zombification was spread as a malicious way for Christianity to vilify a rival religious concept when in reality its methods had to do with healing and life rather than death and curses.

    The very powerful imagery that was conjured by this representation has made for a wonderfully lurid and fertile ground for comic books. Zombies have long been a staple of the genre and the Voodoo connection means it's often useful in zombie stories and those tales with mystic aspects, especially those set in the southern United States.

    Voodoo worships a pantheon of deities known as Loa.
