In Review: Doctor Who: Doom’s Day #2

24 hours to find the Doctor Doom
Day

Synopsis: This month in Doom’s Day, 24 hours to find the Doctor Doom

This lonely assassin from the 51st Century is hunting for her survival, and there’s only one person who can save her: The Doctor.

Using her vortex manipulator, she’ll do anything to find the tempestuous time traveller, including cavorting with the maleficent Missy!

Every hour a new adventure, every hour closer to death…

 

The Story

Doom’s quest to find The Doctor takes her to a convention, which seems to have people cosplaying as Earth archetypes like Cowboys and such. Much like with the last issue. Missy isn’t too far behind and she is still trying to convince Doom that she is Doctor Who, which is a claim that Doom puts to the test later in the issue. Doom’s target at this convention is someone that is looking to purchase a lot of old earth books. And in an effort to figure Missy’s motives out. Doom suggests an alliance.

 

The Artwork

 Roberta Ingranata does a solid job of the artwork throughout this issue and manages to capture the vibe and feel of a convention really well. I loved the design of the alien house that Doom visits toward the end of the issue. And the character design of Doom continues to amuse me somewhat. I think its the monocle. 

 

Overall

Another fun issue with some fun banter between Missy and Doom. The issue ends on a little bit of a cliffhanger, which suggests that this is going to be picked up at some stage. On the final page see Missy in conversation with The Doctor. In terms of what happens to Doom. We don’t really find out. So we are left to assume that she is still out there continuing her search for The Doctor.

Overall. The story doesn’t really conclude, but sometimes a story left open can make for a better story or even stories.
