HEY GEEKS 🤓
Comic Name: Doctor Who - The Thirteenth Doctor #1
Release Date: 7/11/18
It’s back on our TV screens and finally we get to see the Thirteenth Doctor and friends in action in comic book form. It was the talk of the Tardis - the thirteenth Doctor being a woman and I have to say it was a welcome change.
In this first issue, set in 1899 we’re introduced to time-travelling scientists-turned-thieves Perkins and Doctor Schulz. We see them stealing and dropping some valuable artwork from a gallery and also learn that they are working for an enormous, skeletal, treasure-hungry creature in return for some kind of medicine for Schulz. Some great narrative follows and we find out that Perkins has been reaching out to the Doctor for help through a portal after rescuing Perkins our heroes find themselves surrounded by the strange Grand Army of the Just. Who are they? What do they want with the Doctor and her friends??... Lucky for me I bought issue #2
along with this so can find out straight away!
Geeky Guy Comics Verdict:
This was the first Doctor Who comic I’ve read and it was great. The artwork by @rachaelscott
is superbly done and really matches the true likeness of the characters and the show. Before we get to the actual story, brief introductions are provided for each in the front of the issue. I particularly loved the Doctor being described as ‘a live wire, full of energy and fizzing with excitement and wit’, which is so true as she has the perfect mix of both Matt Smith and David Tenants traits
What makes this first issue really shine is the way the Doctor, Yaz, Ryan, and Graham seamlessly flow from screen to page. Every panel in this issue is breathtaking and the new TARDIS looks more incredible than it does on the TV.
I can already see this becoming a fan favourite so make add it to you collection from the LINK IN BIO!
