You thought we were done with Time Lord Victorious? Not yet! Along with the DWM Ninth Doctor story yet to be released in GN format (so who knows when we’ll actually be done…), there was this story from Titan Comics that I thought I’d finally get round to reading as we have the only other TLV release up on the site this week. Defender of the Daleks is… Alright, I guess. It doesn’t really add anything to the overall narrative though… so it’s right at home! Let’s take a look…Continue reading
So Titan Comics’ Year Three comes to an end with a massive crossover storyline, as they tend to do. Last year’s crossover was something of a disappointment, but what about this year? Does throwing every Doctor at the thing until something sticks the best way to go about it? Can they have an entity called a “White Hole” without quoting the classic Red Dwarf episode?! Let’s find out!
So the previous story had three returning elements and was a bit too much… so let’s go with FOUR. Five if you include Missy (though she was more of a regular cast member during the TV series this is set in, so I can let that pass). While the previous story still managed to be fun, is this just too much? Was there any reason to have the Heavenly Host do battle with the Weeping Angels other than the fact they both angel themes? Let’s find out!
You know how in the previous Twelfth Doctor Titan Comic release I praised it for not being too continuity heavy? Well, they made up for it in spades here! The titular three-part story features the return of not one, not two but THREE enemies from the show’s past. Does it work? Let’s find out!
We enter the final straight in Titan Comics’ Year Three, with just three 12th Doctor books and the crossover to go. “Time Trials”, unlike the 10th and 11th Doctor runs this year, is a subtitle that means… nothing. In fact the three books from Year Three for Mr. Capaldi are all entirely standalone, as well as thankfully very good! In fact the opening story of this Graphic Novel had art that blew me away. So let’s take a look at it!
Man… this was a slog to get through. So much so that I don’t want to drag it out across three reviews, so I’m merging the Eleventh Doctor’s Third Year Titan Comics into one review. Luckily it does have a core plot through it, enough that I can easily review it as one story, even if there are a few stand-alone single issue stories here and there. So, why didn’t I enjoy this run of comics? See below to find out!
So, after much delay, we reach the end of the current run of Titan Comics’ 10th Doctor and all things considered, it’s a fine send off. While certain things are still left up in the air that I hope one day will be revisited, “The Good Companion” at least had the feel of an epic series finale. Let’s take a look!
We’re nearly at the end of the Titan Comics 10th Doctor stories with Vortex Butterflies. It finally deals head-on with the weird powers Gabby has been showing for some time now, while also having a role for Sarah Jane Smith and managing to throw in more companion name drops than you can shake a stick at. Let’s take a look!
It’s time to resume our look at the Year Three Titan Doctor Who comics proper with the 10th Doctor, a run with the subtitle “Facing Fate” (a subtitle seems to be a theme with the three core Titan Doctors last year…) Volume 1 of this year has the frankly fantastic subtitle of “Breakfast at Tyranny’s” and sees our lead trio being manipulated by powerful forces, as they tend to do…
Sin Eaters serves as a farewell to the Ninth Doctor Titan comics, giving us a good, pretty much stand-alone two-part story, then a somewhat hurried triple bill to end on. It’s good though, it’s a shame that out of the original foursome of “New Who” that the least served Doctor TV-wise would be the first to get their run cancelled, but hey-ho… let’s take a closer look!
