Reviews of two of the latest digital comics from Titan Comics
Death Sentence: London #1
The smash-hit sex-and-superpowers epic returns, with a brand-new artist and an all-new ongoing series! Titan’s biggest creator-owned smash is back! Picks up right where the bestselling graphic novel left off – with London in ruins, psychic manipulator Monty ripped in half by failed musician Weasel – and rabbit-hatted invisible artist Verity missing, presumed dead! As England pulls itself back from the brink, new G-positive powers are popping up all over! As martial law and forced abstinence prey on the mind of the London Mayor, the American alphabet agencies are watching the London warzone with interest – and special agent Jeb Mulgrew might be next to be thrown into the fire! Gorgeously grimy fully-painted art by hand-picked creator Martin Simmonds! As timely and resonant as ever, and packed with all the creative swearing, outrageous use of powers and satirical social commentary you’ve come to love – Death Sentence is back to lay claim to your hindbrain and devastate your pull list!
OK, this issue has a lot of fallout – worldwide! There’s our heroes (and villains) from the first series, as well as some new characters too! The art continues to be boombastic as well as gritty, showing all different sides to this outbreak! There are some new aspects as well – how the people in charge are dealing with the cleanup of London, as well as the law enforcement of these!
And then we have Verity – doing her own thing and wanting her life back.
This series has places to go!
Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor #11
THE FOUNTAINS OF FOREVER! Cindy and Gabby have a falling out after Gabby’s homecoming – as an ancient artefact from the centre of the universe, a rogue Black Ops organisation, and a secret auction conspire to cause galaxy-shattering chaos!
Straight after the last story, we jump into another with Gabby going to make up with her friend who thinks she’s been ignoring her, while The Doctor goes on the search for an artifact at an auction. There he meets a new character who seems to have something to hide, but the Doctor always has a plan, and this one looks like it’s gone a little bit wrong for all those involved – babies, black ops and Nine all to come!
