‘Doctor Who: Empire of the Wolf #4’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jody Houser | Art by Roberta Ingranata | Published by Titan Comics Atmosphere is such a woolly term, it can cover a whole lot of factors after all, but this book has atmosphere. It has the feel of a solid Who adventure, from the story, the setting, and the characters. Jody Houser just […]

‘Doctor Who: Empire of the Wolf #3’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jody Houser | Art by Roberta Ingranata | Published by Titan Comics Having (a tin of) Roses at Christmas is very traditional, so in the absence of a Doctor Who comic book Christmas Special, this mini-series with its multiple Doctor’s and Rose Tyler’s will have to do. That’s fine by me because it’s […]

‘Doctor Who: Empire of the Wolf #2’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jody Houser | Art by Roberta Ingranata | Published by Titan Comics Every time I see Jody Houser’s name on the cover of a Who book I’m a happy man. Always delivers. Never some generic action adventure that you could slot any old character into, but something that is designed purely for The […]

‘Doctor Who: Empire of the Wolf #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jody Houser | Art by Roberta Ingranata | Published by Titan Comics The last time Jody Houser and Roberta Ingranata were playing in the Dr. Who sandbox, they were giving us the rather fabulous Missy 4-parter. Since then, not much in the The Doctor’s comic world, though a lot of news in The […]

‘Doctor Who: Missy #4’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jody Houser | Art by Roberta Ingranata | Published by Titan Comics All good things must come to an end, even for Time Lords. Even for Time Lords pretending to be other Time Lords while partnering with a previous incarnation of themselves and encountering two versions of the Time Lord who they themselves […]

‘Doctor Who: Missy #3’ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jody Houser | Art by Roberta Ingranata | Published by Titan Comics This mini-series so far has been about as Missy as it’s possible to get without it being an actual episode of the TV show. Houser has up to now perfectly nailed the mannerisms, banter, and cockiness f the character, not to […]

‘Doctor Who: Missy #2’ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jody Houser | Art by Roberta Ingranata | Published by Titan Comics It wasn’t until I read the previous issue that I realised that I had really, er, missed Missy. Her little run-ins in with Peter Capaldi’s Twelfth Doctor were always a highlight of the series after all. All new adventures can only […]

‘Doctor Who: Missy #1’ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jody Houser | Art by Roberta Ingranata | Published by Titan Comics My first thought when I saw this title was ‘Why?’. Missy, the female regeneration of The Master, is of course a fan favourite character, thanks in no small part to the brilliant Michelle Gomez who played her. She was perfect nemesis/ […]

‘Doctor Who Comic #3’ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jody Houser | Art by Roberta Ingranata | Published by Titan Comics I’ve been really enjoying this kick off story arc, with Jody Houser once again having all sorts of fun going through the gears. As I wrote last time round, total fan service, but that’s never a bad thing. Give ’em what […]

‘Doctor Who Comic #2’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jody Houser | Art by Roberta Ingranata | Published by Titan Comics Last issue was fun, wasn’t it? Smacked totally of fan service, but I think we are all fine with that. Take the Thirteenth Doctor, TARDIS and Fam, sprinkle in a dash of The Tenth Doctor, and a cherry on top in […]

‘Doctor Who Comic #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jody Houser | Art by Roberta Ingranata | Published by Titan Comics With all the Time Lord Victorious shenanigans going on in the Dr. Who world (do read it, it’s great stuff), it’s easy to forget the bread and butter on the Who schedule. Namely, the main book featuring the current Thirteenth Doctor. […]

‘Doctor Who: Time Lord Victorious #2’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jody Houser | Art by Roberta Ingranata | Published by Titan Comics If you are even a casual Doctor Who fan, you will no doubt have been following the frankly huge Doctor Who ‘Time Lord Victorious’ crossover storyline. If you’ve come in late, it is essentially a series of stories that are on […]

‘Doctor Who: Time Lord Victorious #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jody Houser | Art by Roberta Ingranata | Published by Titan Comics Been missing my Doctor Who fix of late, with obvious recent disruptions to monthly comics. Jody Houser had been doing a great job on the book, for me doing even better than most of the TV show episodes last series. So […]

‘Doctor Who: The Thirteenth Doctor – Year 2 #4’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jody Houser | Art by Roberta Ingranata | Published by Titan Comics Well a lot has certainly happened since I reviewed the last issue of this book back in February. You could say in many ways the Covid pandemic is like something straight out of a Doctor Who story, though sadly rather than […]

‘Doctor Who: The Thirteenth Doctor – Year 2 #3’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jody Houser | Art by Roberta Ingranata | Published by Titan Comics The saying ‘hit the ground running’ is often overused, but I think it’s fair to say that Jody Houser’s first story arc of Year 2 for The Thirteenth Doctor has done just that. Having just discovered that this first arc, a […]

‘Doctor Who: The Thirteenth Doctor – Year 2 #2’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jody Houser | Art by Roberta Ingranata | Published by Titan Comics Last issue was a fantastic start to Year 2 of The Thirteenth Doctor. Partly because Jody Houser writes a blindingly good Thirteen, partly because David Tennant’s Tenth Doctor appeared and still steals every scene he is in, and partly because the […]

Written by Jody Houser | Art by Roberta Ingranata | Published by Titan Comics So here we are, the cheeky Part 2 of the Dr Who Christmas…er, Holiday, Special (must keep our transatlantic chums onside).

Written by Jody Houser | Art by Roberta Ingranata | Published by Titan Comics If there’s something comic fans like it’s consistency. Consistency in how the characters are portrayed, consistency in the tone of the book, consistency in the overall feel of the book, and most importantly consistency in the creative team. Luckily, this book […]

‘Doctor Who: The Thirteenth Doctor #10’ Review

by Dean Fuller

‘Doctor Who: The Thirteenth Doctor #8’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jody Houser | Art by Roberta Ingranata | Published by Titan Comics In this age of ‘four and done’ arcs, so those issues can be neatly packaged up as graphic novels and have their shelf lives extended, I was guessing this issue would tie up the second storyline of the book and I […]
