Synopsis: The weekly event, running through August and September 2015, in place of the ongoing series, features all three Doctors from Titan’s regular ongoings. The first issue releases Wednesday August 12, supported by the global Doctor Who Comics Day on Saturday August 15.
In issue #1, Clara Oswald stumbled into The Museum of Terrible Fates on Marinus. Of course, she entered the Doctor’s name into the search engine, and Clara discovered she had to prevent the most terrible fate of all!
Review: This was a solid start to this multi-Doctor arc. The art by Neil Edwards was lovely, especially the antique photo quality of 1923 Paris. Additionally, the characterization of each Doctor was spot on. I especially enjoyed Twelve’s response to Ten: “You can’t handle the lapels thing.” I also appreciated the cameo by The War Doctor, nods to the First Doctor, and the inevitable reintroduction of creatures from the Ninth Doctor’s era. If I have one complaint, however, it’s that the dialogue bubbles were too close together during the Doctors’ meet-up to track properly. All in all, though, the issue was well put together.
