Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor #11
George Mann – novelist behind the New York Times bestselling Doctor Who: Engines of War and the Newbury and Hobbes series – joins the ongoing Twelfth Doctor series for an extremely special issue and Mariano Laclaustra joins him in his first solo outing! Fresh from their adventures in Las Vegas, the Doctor and Clara are eager for a change of scenery, but their next destination aboard the TARDIS will prove a SHOCKING change of pace! And coming up next issue: post-event, the Twelfth Doctor’s first year in comics concludes, with the return of a cosmic foe and a four-part epic climax to our first year by Robbie Morrison, Daniel Indro and Slamet Mujiono!
A one-shot Doctor adventure features the Doctor and Clara overshooting Margate and finding themselves in the past. We get possible spirits – quickly discounted by the Doctor and more as we have a spooky story which possibly could have been dragged on longer than this one-shot! I enjoyed it though and this issue, like most of the other Titan Comics Doctors, seem to have captured the ‘voice’ of each Doctor!
Death Sentence: London #4
The smash-hit sex, death, and superpowers series continues – now ongoing!
• London remains under curfew, as electrical storms wreak havoc on the city and bomb-damaged infrastructure and martial law leads to chaos and rioting on the streets!
• Verity comes into her own – kicking ass with weaponised creativity and G-plus-enhanced reflexes!
• At the Chronicle, reporter Peter Fincham begins to put the pieces together about the government’s involvement in the G-plus crisis – will Verity survive long enough to turn informant?
• And at the heart of the riot – a brand-new G-plus cover star: Roots!
We get a new introduction here, and I continue to marvel at the feel of this series. After so many America-centric stories, it’s very rare that you get one that fits so well for London. And this issue shows that! You still get the Americans too – they are getting involved in their own way! Verity continues to grow so well as a character and her story is just a piece of the puzzle in this read!
