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 […]

Doctor Who Archives: Prisoners of Time Omnibus

As a companion to their many Doctor Who comic titles, Titan has collected the 12-issue Doctor Who: Prisoners of Time series originally published by IDW in 2013. Instead of the single-volume hardcover IDW put out, now we’ve got an affordable softcover with a cover that prioritizes the newer Doctors, in keeping with Titan’s audience. Prisoners of Time is a fun read for those who enjoy the whole gamut of Doctors (which only spanned to 11 when this was put out). […]

Doctor Who: The Fourth Doctor #1

The historically most popular Doctor (at least in the states), the fourth, played by Tom Baker, gets his own miniseries of five issues. The first issue of “Gaze of the Medusa”, as written by Gordon Rennie and Emma Beeby and illustrated by Brian Williamson, sets up the elements, which feel like a classic 1970s Doctor Who story. There’s a mysterious old lady with possessed servants, classic monsters revisited (single-eyed “scryclops” in suits and top hats), and a young lady in […]

Doctor Who: The Eighth Doctor: A Matter of Life and Death

Although a comic is the perfect format for more adventures for a version of the Doctor cut short by time and format, I was a bit disappointed by the first issue of this miniseries. I’m glad I stuck with it, though, because by the end, I realized it had done more than I gave it credit for. The five issues that make up this run, taken together, are like a perfect sample pack of Doctor Who story styles. My biggest […]

Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor #11

I know big, galaxy-risking, four-part stories are seen as more important, but it’s the one-off, quieter, more personal scenes that I really like in this series. I shouldn’t be too complacent, though, since those openings are often just the first part of another big adventure. In this issue written by Nick Abadzis and illustrated by Elena Casagrande, Gabby and the Doctor are back in New York City, but Gabby’s friend Cindy is mad that she’s dropped out of touch. While […]

Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor #11

I haven’t been talking much about the Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor series. I liked companion Alice, but she quickly got lost in adding a couple more creatures traveling with them and a rather pedestrian storyline about the dangers of consumerism. However, I had to make note of issue #11 (written by Al Ewing and drawn by Boo Cook) because of companion Jones. He’s a Brit musician they picked up in the 60s. We’re told he’s destined to be a […]

Doctor Who: The Ninth Doctor #1

Completing the modern run of Doctors with their fourth title, Titan Comics has launched Doctor Who: The Ninth Doctor #1. This one’s a miniseries, five issues, written by Cavan Scott and drawn by Blair Shedd. So they can include the popular companions Rose and Captain Jack, the story “Weapons of Past Destruction” is set just after the two pick up the captain in the World War II-set TV story “The Doctor Dances”. The TV episodes moved quickly past the trio, […]

Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor #1

I was curious to try the launch of the Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor comic series, because I lost interest in the show in the second half of the Eleventh Doctor’s TV run. As a result, I haven’t seen any of the Peter Capaldi Doctor Who episodes. I thought the first issue, written by Robbie Morrison with art by Dave Taylor, might give me a good idea whether I should bother catching up. If driving interest in the master property […]
