DW: The Clockwise War Review

DW The Clockwise War

The Clockwise War promised a lot. It was the last Twelfth Doctor story in DWM, it featured the return of classic DWM character Fey, and the cover promised a look at a younger version of the War Doctor at long last. Somehow, The Clockwise War managed to pull all of this off to become the best DWM comic story since The Flood, and given how much I like the 8th Doctor’s DWM run, that says a lot! So let’s take a closer look…

DW: The Soul Garden Review

DW The Soul Garden

I start my read through of the collected Graphic Novel “The Phantom Piper” with, well, the first story in the collection! The Soul Garden is a fine story, full of nice dream-like imagery and good artwork, so it’s a nice way to kick off the final run of Twelfth Doctor DWM comic stories (though his actual final story is in a final GN out next year…) Let’s take a closer look!

DW: Deep Breath Review

DW Deep Breath

Well, here we go, the first time I review a Twelfth Doctor story in retrospect, rather than after it airs. Deep Breath not only introduces us to a great new Doctor (well, great for the rest of this series, anyway…) but also gives us a fun villain and a waves a goodbye to Vastra, Jenny and Strax by giving them one final adventure. It’s a damn fine story, with only a few minor quibbles, so let’s take a good look!

DW: Supremacy of the Cybermen Review

DW Supremacy of the Cybermen

It’s a “of the Cybermen” double on this site, completely coincidentally. I finally end my run on the Titan Comics Year 2 graphics novels with this, the big crossover event… sort of. It features all four of the Doctors that had on-going comics in this year (as well as cameos from other Doctors!), but they’re all separate and never interact with each other. Oh, and the artwork is awful. Let’s take a deeper look, then!

DW: Sonic Boom Review

DW Sonic Boom

The 12th Doctor “Year Two” run of Titan Comics comes to a mixed end with a volumes of two more stories. “Terror of the Cabinet Noir” is actually a great story, with some of the best artwork I’ve seen in one of these comic stories, where as “Invasion of the Mindmorphs” is pretty weak, and pretty much a rip off of a classic Futurama story… So, let’s take a closer look at this collected graphic novel of two halves!

DW: The Twist Review

DW The Twist

The next volume of Titan Comics’ 12th Doctor run once again contains two stories (this time a three-part story and a two-part one) but is now set in between Series 9 and 10, meaning The Doctor is companionless. Much like the show itself, being Clara-less helps wonders here, as the titular story is actually really great, and the second story (“Playing House”) isn’t too bad either. So let’s take a look!

DW: The School of Death Review

DW School of Death

After spending some time back with the Doctor Who Magazine comics, it’s time to rejoin the Titan line and take a look at the first two 12th Doctor collected graphic novels of the second “year”, starting with The School of Death. Technically a four-part story and a single part one, both of which are the last stories to feature Clara in the Titan line and both of which feature a returning enemy! So are they any good? Well…

DW: Doorway to Hell Review

DW Doorway to Hell

It’s time to cover the titular story from the latest Doctor Who Magazine collection, and what a story it is! The Twelfth Doctor going up against the original Master in 70s London! A story you can only do via a medium like comics, given the sad passing of Roger Delgado all those years ago. As if that wasn’t enough, it contains an even more significant event at the end (depending of which expanded media you like to consider “canon”). So… let’s take a look!
