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 […]

Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor #2

I wasn’t as thrilled with the first issue of Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor as I’d hoped to be, but the second issue assuaged many of my concerns. Writer Nick Abadzis swings full speed into the wacky adventure mode of the David Tennant version, as he and Gabby Gonzalez run from a monster on a subway, talking a mile a minute the whole time. I’m amazed at how well artist Elena Casagrande does in keeping the action readable in amongst […]

The Simon & Kirby Library: Horror

The latest entry in the Simon & Kirby Library reprint series — following Science Fiction, Crime, and Superheroes — is Horror. This volume reprints comics I didn’t even know existed — stories by Jack Kirby and Joe Simon from Black Magic #1-33 (1950-1954) and The Strange World of Your Dreams #1-3 (1952). There’s not a lot of explanation of what these titles were or how they came to be, I assume because most people interested in reading these stories likely […]

Death Sentence #1-2

written by Monty Nero art by Mike Dowling Titan Comics is actively plugging this six-issue miniseries as original (as can be seen by the cover blurbs), but I found it intriguing because it was a modern take on the Strikeforce: Morituri concept: you get superpowers, but that acquisition drastically shortens your life. In this case, there’s a G+ virus, sexually transmitted, that gives you abilities and six months to live. The big difference with Strikeforce: Morituri is that that series […]

The Simon & Kirby Library: Science Fiction

Review by KC Carlson In comic shops this week, the latest and maybe the most fascinating volume yet in the Simon & Kirby Library series. The Simon & Kirby Library: Science Fiction was slightly delayed due to the passing of Joe Simon in late 2011. Simon was very involved in the production of these wonderful volumes, and it can’t have been an easy time for editor Steve Saffel and the rest of the crew at Titan Books. Nonetheless, this volume […]
