The cornerstone of Titan Comics is Doctor Who. They've committed to regular series for the current Doctor, His Eleventh incarnation, and his Tenth incarnation. They've even done mini-series for The Eighth and Ninth Doctors. Now the Ninth Doctor joins his successors in getting his own regular series.
The Troop is a new comic series written by British actor Noel Clarke. You probably remember him from Doctor Who or Star Trek: Into Darkness. I always tend to be hesitant when actors try their hand at writing comics. The results are mixed and actors have a tendency to finish the project and move on. Going in the Troop's favor is that Titan has apparently been out to publish some good comics, using the attention their Doctor Who license gives them.
Titan Comics is going to make a Fourth Doctor comics series! Titan has not been one to shy away from pleasing fans of the previous doctors, making continuing series featuring the tenth and eleventh doctors and miniseries that feature the ninth doctor and the war doctor. Now Titan is going back to before the current Doctor Who series to present new stories featuring one of the most popular Doctors, the Fourth Doctor, that was portrayed by Tom Baker.
The Eighth Doctor, as portrayed by Paul McGann, is almost entirely unknown to Doctor Who fans that haven't indulged in non-television portrayals of the Doctor. Titan Comics helps remedy that a little with a new series featuring the Eighth Doctor. Since so much of this regeneration's adventures are left open, a new comic series of his adventures should be able to pleasantly entertain. Does it succeed? How does it stack up to other adventures of the Doctor? There's only one way to find out.
Earlier this month, we shared a review of Assassin's Creed #1 by writers Anthony Del Col and Conor McCreery. Conor was gracious enough to answer some of our questions.
Assassins Creed #1 is getting a lot of promotion from Titan Comics, with retailer exclusive variants and it seems like non-stop emails in our inbox. Now the time has come to see if the book is worth the hype and lives up to the excitement of the video game series that sired it.
For the record, the Tenth Doctor is my Doctor. I saw a clip online of him and immediately set out to see the adventures of the new Doctor. By the time I was able to catch up, David Tennant had finished his run and Matt Smith had become the Doctor. Now that Matt Smith has moved on, fans of the Tenth Doctor are joined by fans of the Eleventh Doctor in missing the adventures of their favorite Time Lord of Gallifrey. Fortunately, Titan Comics gives us a fix of new stories for these past Doctors, and that's where our review comes in.
In a few weeks, Titan Comics is releasing Assassin's Creed #1, taking the story from the blockbuster video game into the present day. The writers of Kill Shakespeare, Anthony Del Col and Conor McCreery are joined on the series by Doctor Who artist Neil Edwards. As soon as we have any preview pages available, we'll pass them along, and you can expect a review as soon as we get our hands on a copy. Until then check out these variant covers for the premiere issue, in stores October 14!
Tank Girl become something of a phenomenon in the early 1990s. Eventually, she got the full movie treatment, which was panned by critics who really didn't get the essence of Tank Girl. She was born in the punk rock culture of late 1980s and the rise of anti-Thatcherism, especially as Britain's ultra-conservative government sought to legislate against homosexuality. Somewhere along the line, this mindset that had spread across the pond lulled and Tank Girl went with it, and her American adventures became more plot and continuity driven as her creators went on to bigger things. Well, they're back.
The thing about Doctor Who is that I'll always give it a second chance. I'll call it for bad if it's bad, but I'll always come back to see if it's gotten better. I'm not ashamed to say that I didn't like the first couple of issues of The Twelfth Doctor, but I came back for another try, and it just so happens that it's the end of another storyline. Was I going to be impressed or a little disappointed again? Read on for my take on the end of "The Fractures"
Christopher Eccleston only had one season as the Doctor, but his incarnation is what re-established a fan base for the next ten years of Doctor Who. Titan Comics has gone back to explore the moments in between the episodic adventures of the Ninth Doctor. For reference, it appears that it falls after the events of "The Doctor Dances," but could be after "Boom Town." Nevertheless, this mini-series gives us more of a look at the adventures of the Ninth Doctor and his companions, Rose Tyler and Captain Jack Harkness.
