The Assignment: Trans for Shock Value

I am flabbergasted that anyone thought publishing The Assignment was a good idea these days. But it’s a tie-in to a movie already made (filmed November 2015, supposedly to be released in the US this year) starring Michelle Rodriguez and Sigourney Weaver, and Titan Comics loves its licensed comics. This was a comic before it was a film, published in France (although the first draft of the script, according to Wikipedia, was in 1978, and that makes a lot more […]

Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor Year Two #14

When all else fails, write what you know — which may be why this first of two issues of “Invasion of the Mindmorphs” features a writer/artist team of comic creators. Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor Year Two #14 will be out February 1. Writer Robbie Morrison and artist Rachael Stott present a story about a spatting pair of co-workers and roommates who make an action-packed comic about the Time Surgeon, his sonic scalpel, and his assistant Nurse Kara fighting cone-shaped […]

Doctor Who: The Third Doctor #3

I liked the first issue of Doctor Who: The Third Doctor for its effective nostalgia, but by this point in the five-issue miniseries, I’m honestly (and pleasantly) surprised at the turns in the story. The Doctor and Jo have been taken over by nanites, although since this story is set in the 70s, they’re called “micro machines” by writer Paul Cornell. For some reason, that means both characters are inside Jo’s mind, a crazy-colored landscape that the machines are trying […]

Doctor Who: The Third Doctor #1

Out this Wednesday is the newest in the ever-expanding Titan Comics Doctor Who line. Doctor Who: The Third Doctor features the likeness of Jon Pertwee, who played the Doctor between 1970 and 1974. Paul Cornell, who’s written Doctor Who novels and actual TV show episodes, knows his stuff. This five-issue story, “The Heralds Of Destruction”, feels faithful to the period and the characters. But for me, that’s the problem. The third Doctor was kind of like a sci-fi James Bond, […]

The Doctor Tackles Superheroes in Doctor Who: The Ninth Doctor #4

The fourth issue of the now-ongoing Doctor Who: The Ninth Doctor series features a comic favorite: people getting superpowers. Only there’s a twist, of course. First, the comic — written by Cavan Scott, art by Cris Bolson — does something that can only be done these days in the comics. It mixes up characters from various eras of the show. The ninth Doctor, in the likeness of Christopher Eccleston, meets up with the later Mickey Smith, the one who’s become […]

Doctor Who: Supremacy of the Cybermen #1 Marks Doctor Who Comics Day

It’s summer, so once again, Titan Comics has declared their own holiday. Doctor Who Comics Day is July 9. Last year, they put out a weekly crossover series featuring four Doctors. This year, to mark the 50th anniversary of the Cybermen, they’re putting out a five-part series, Doctor Who: Supremacy of the Cybermen, with an issue every two weeks. It stars the Ninth, Tenth, Eleventh, and Twelfth Doctors (plus Rose and Captain Jack) and is written by George Mann and […]

Doctor Who: The Fourth Doctor #2

Now that I’ve gotten used to the somewhat stiff art style used for the miniseries by Brian Williamson (probably under constraints to keep the likenesses as on-point as possible), I can relax and enjoy the adventure, and boy, there’s plenty of that! Writers Gordon Rennie and Emma Beeby waste no time in explaining the plot — a crazy old lady has a way to open windows to the past with the Lamp of Chronos — and characters — Professor James […]

Doctor Who: The Ninth Doctor #1 (Ongoing)

I didn’t care much for the Doctor Who: The Ninth Doctor miniseries, complaining about its over-reliance on photo reference, slow pacing, and non-distinct character voices. I’m thrilled to say that, now that the series is an ongoing, the comic is much more enjoyable to read, with all those problems gone. It’s still written by Cavan Scott, but new artist Adriana Melo (Ms. Marvel) gives the art much more motion, action, and expression. The Doctor, Rose, and Captain Jack are still […]
