Reviews of the latest Doctor Who digital comics from Titan Comics
Doctor Who: The Ninth Doctor #5
• ‘Weapons of Past Destruction’ concludes!
• Did we really just read last issue’s staggering cliffhanger? Has one of the Doctor’s beloved companions flipped sides?
• The final conflict between the Unon and the Lect – will one of them take the Time Lords’ place as the guardians of the universe?
• One more outing with the Ninth Doctor, Rose and Captain Jack! If you want more – you have to let us know!!!
Concluding the Ninth Doctor’s adventures we get everything sorted out – we get a good look at the universe without the Timelords and the void they left behind them. We also get a look at this Doctor’s guilt over the end of the Timelords. It’s a good read, made all the better from the characterization of Nine. It looks as if we will get more of this Doctor in the future!
Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor (2015-) #3
The Doctor and Alice have met persistent foes before – but never anything like THE THEN & THE NOW, the group of supremely strange cosmic bounty hunters sent to bring them to justice! It’s getting so they can’t even solve an intergalactic war crime without having to flee for their lives!
An interesting Doctor Who comic here – one without the Doctor, but he’s felt and referred to enough in this issue. We get some excellent art and layouts in this issue as we get a look into Alice’s journal. We get a new character (who is dealt with for now) and the return of a friend of the Doctor!
Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor #14
THE STARS GO OUT, ONE BY ONE!
It’s the penultimate part of ‘The Hyperion War’, and things are looking bad for the Doctor and Clara! With the returning Hyperions having laid waste to whole portions of the Earth, the Doctor attempts to regain the initiative by moving the battleground into space, aboard the Hyperions orbital armada… But these ancient solar entities are building a superweapon around the sun – and eternal darkness could be the result!
This is a big issue Doctor Who – not only does he have to deal with the Hyperion – but also humans who think they know better. There’s a lot of knowledge being imparted here as the Doctor tries to make piece with the Hyperions. I doesn’t look good for the planet though!
