Recently, the Doctor discovered they had lived through an unknown number of regenerations that had been wiped from their memory.
Doctor

Synopsis: The Doctor is a Time Lord from the planet Gallifrey. A long time ago, they stole a TARDIS in a bid to explore the universe in complete freedom. When near death, Time Lords have the ability to regenerate, forming a new body and personality quirks. Recently, the Doctor discovered they had lived through an unknown number of regenerations that had been wiped from their memory. This is the story of one of those forgotten lives, known as the Fugitive Doctor…

 

The Story

Jody Houser conjures up a cute little story for Free Comic Book Day and it’s a story that links from the Fugitive Doctor to The First Doctor. But not in a massive way. As we have learned in the recent origins comics series. The Fugitive Doctor before going on the run worked for a Time organization called division. And this story sees her traveling to 1960s earth to prevent some small gonk-like aliens from stealing all of the earth’s resources.  Unfortunately, these Gonks who are led by Monstario are hiding out in a kids clubhouse. They have attached themselves to three kids who have adopted them as playmates. At least until The Doctor comes and sorts everything out.

It is a cute little story. Which ends with the First Doctor returning to the kid’s clubhouse with Susan a year later.

 

The Artwork

Once again Roberta Ingranata works her magic with some wonderful art. I loved the character designs for the little aliens, which looked a little like the small Gonk toys that I remember from the 70s and 80s. Her art is brilliantly complemented by Warnia K. Sahadewa’s magical colors.

 

Overall

A fun little story that was released for last week’s Free Comic Book day. I loved the idea of a small group of nasty Gonk aliens looking to stip our planet of all Aluminium. I especially loved how it was the kids that save the day at the end and not The Doctor.
