I'll be really honest with you. I didn't get into Robotech. It never really made it's way into my neck of the woods when I was a kid. The closest I ever got was Gatchaman, billed in the u.S. as Battle of the Planets. I understand that there are some of you, even close friends of mine that really loved Robotech. It's for those of you that love Robotech that I gave Robotech Remix a try.
We get previews of a lot of comics. However, we seldom get manga. Leave it to a British publisher to send us manga. This is the first English translation of Ryuko, the story of a powerful female Yakuza who tries to atone for killing her father.
I haven't even read the review copy sent by Titan Comics, and I'm excited about Blade Runner 2019 #1. Blade Runner is one of the best science fiction films of all time. Now, there's an ongoing series set in the neo-noir city of Los Angeles.
We're almost through the first half of Jodie Whitaker's first season as the Doctor. Not to spoil anything, but in my house, it's very enjoyable to see these new stories. As a comics fan, I'm left wondering where the comic books featuring the first female Doctor have been. On November 7, the first issue of the next series in the adventures of everyone's favorite Time Lord hits shops. Titan Comics has sent out preview pages and cover images in anticipation of the launch.
Fans of Jodie Whitaker's Thirteenth Doctor should be looking forward to more than just the next season of Doctor Who. Titan Comics' many Doctor Who series chronicle many incarnations of the Doctor, but always chronicle the current Doctor's adventures outside of the television series. Jodie Whitaker's Doctor will be no different and explore her character.
I've been waiting for this issue to come out for a while. I remember Bridgit Connell self-publishing the first Brother Nash comic,. Since word got out that Titan would be publishing it, I've wanted to read this book badly. That time has come.
Pretty soon, Titan Comics will feature new comic book adventures for all of the Doctors. This isn't a bad thing, as any Doctor Who fan who's gone back and watched classic episodes can attest. Personally, I am very partial to the First Doctor's adventures, but will agree with many that the Seventh Doctor is underrated in the quality of the adventures that featured this quirky Doctor. The fact that so many stories have been crafted for the various incarnations of the Doctor is what makes Doctor Who comics so much fun.
Titan Comics announced the creative team for the Thirteenth Doctor's adventures in comic books this week. Featuring some great talent, especially artist Rachael Stott, who's already given us a preview of how her thirteenth doctor will look after Jodie Whitaker was announced as the thirteenth Doctor. Her work on the Twelfth Doctor's comic book adventures were impressive enough to gain the appreciation of the Doctor himself, Peter Capaldi. Her style is a great match for Doctor Who adventures, as she can nail the likenesses of the familiar cast members. She's not only demonstrated this with the Twelfth Doctor but with her work on Star Trek/Planet of the Apes. Joined by writer Jody Houser, who's written some good stuff, this next series of the Doctor's adventures look to be one to check out.
I held off on reviewing Titan Comics' Fighting American when it first came out. However, now with the collection coming out and a follow-up mini-series on the way, it seemed like an opportunity to give the entire story another chance. What I didn't realize was that in my reading of this latest interpretation of a Jack Kirby creation, I would see a validation of something that had been brewing in my head for some time.
Tank Girl turns 30 this year. Take that in.
