In Review: Doctor Who Comic #2.1: Missy

Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of The Master/Missy
Missy

Synopsis: Missy wages war on the Third and Twelfth Doctors! Can they stop her from executing her lethal plot?

 

The Story

The Master is being held prisoner at Stormcloud Prison and the third Doctor has just gotten through with his regular long-distance call to check on him. Unbeknownst to him. Missy has plans of her own and has decided to pay a visit to The Master and break him out. But what on earth does she have planned?

 

The Artwork

Roberta Ingranata does a fantastic job with the artwork and manages to capture the likenesses of all the characters brilliantly. Indeed, we even get treated to some unexpected imagery as we see various Doctor Who villains in the lining of Missy’s umbrella. The artist does a great job capturing the likeness of the late Roger Delgado who originated the role of The Master 50 years ago. Indeed, this book is very much a celebration of 50 years for the character. And what better way to celebrate is there than having Missy and The Master fence.

Also, Enrica Eren Angiolini does a brilliant job with the colors for this issue.

 

Overall

This is an excellent start to what I am sure will be a great story to celebrate 50 years of one of the Doctor’s most loved villains.

Writer Jody Houser does a brilliant job of capturing the way in which Roger Delgado’s Master annunciates his words. A great deal of fun is had with the verbal sparring between Missy and The Master. It is particularly fun that Missy is pretending to be another incarnation of The Doctor. I loved the final few panels of the two villains’ sword fighting with fencing foils. Also, fun was Missy’s line about accessories.

Overall. This is a really solid start. The banter between the two villains is great and it was nice to see The Third Doctor in comics again. It’s going to be fun and interesting to see what will happen when the Third and Twelfth Doctor’s eventually meet. Indeed, what will the Third Doctor make of Missy?
