9 reasons you should be reading the Ninth Doctor- Doctor Who Miniseries (Issue #2)

The second issue of the Ninth Doctor miniseries by Cavan Scott & Blair Shedd hits stands on June 17, 2015. Here are nine reasons you should pick it up: 


 1. Gorgeous Cover: it fits in a puzzle of covers that interlock with other Doctor Who comics series. However they are not necessary to appreciate this piece. 

 2. Blair Shedd’s art and color work are FANTASTIC! 

 3. The Doctor is very much The Doctor. 

 4. Non-humanoid aliens not limited in design by budget:

 5. Still sassy as ever. This is merely a nibble of the cheeky tongue found inside: 

 6. TARDIS love and devotion: 

 7. Easter eggs: 

8. She’s not in the story, but shots at Jackie Tyler are still fair game:

 9. Great visuals for references to the larger plot points in principal untold story of the television show: 

 All pictures are from issue 2 of the Ninth Doctor series. You can pick up issue 1 here: https://www.comixology.com/Doctor-Who-The-Ninth-Doctor-1/digital-comic/189727?ref=Y29taWMvdmlldy90YWJsZXQvc2xpZGVyTGlzdC9zZXJpZXM

Theatre of War is a book that would prove incredibly important for Big Finish,” explains Producer Cavan Scott. “Justin’s novel introduced the character of Irving Braxiatel, who, played by Miles Richardson, would go on to be a major player in both the Bernice Summerfield adventures and Gallifrey. It only seemed right to invite Miles to return for Benny’s first meeting with the great man. Of course, in typically timey-wimey style, it’s not the first time that he has met her. Then, there is Brax’s long rumoured history with the Doctor to deal with…

It’s got a script by me, art by Blair Shedd with Rachael Stott, colours by Anang Setyawan and letters by Richard Starkings and Comicraft’s Jimmy Betancourt.

“The hotly-anticipated Weapons of Past Destruction continues, as the Doctor, Rose and Jack are trapped in an alien bazaar, caught in a heavily-armed standoff between the overpowered Unon and the Lect – as the nearby star threatens to go supernova!”

Titan Delivers a Solid Adventure with Ninth Doctor #3

Titan Delivers a Solid Adventure with Ninth Doctor #3 #DoctorWho

Ninth Doctor I was fanatically enthusiastic about Ninth Doctor issues #1 and #2 and was very excited to pick up issue #3 of the Titan miniseries. More time with the Ninth Doctor, Captain Jack Harkness, and Rose Tyler? I’m here for it. I’m going to be honest, though, Issue #3 didn’t give me the thrill I was expecting from it. This isn’t to say it was bad, not by any means, just that it lacked a…

Look at my new article - Writer’s Commentary: Cavan Scott on ‘Doctor Who: The Ninth Doctor’ Issue #2

Alice X. Zhang When Doctor Who made its triumphant return to television screens in 2005, with Christopher Eccleston in the role of the ninth Doctor, no-one could have guaranteed that the show would still be a hit ten years later. Yet Doctor Who endures, and with it comes the…

REVIEW: DOCTOR WHO - THE NINTH DOCTOR #3

REVIEW: DOCTOR WHO – THE NINTH DOCTOR #3

It’s got to be tough to do a comic series based on the adventures of the Ninth Doctor. His tenure was so short, just 13 episodes, that he was gone just as we were getting to know him. As a  result, he always felt kind of temporary, as if he were the traumatized, damaged version that needed to exist and process some things before heading into the more comfortable and established incarnations…

According to Megan Gray-Hatfield in a story at dentonrc.com

“The Denton [Texas] nerd community is intense and huge,” said Jake Ekiss, the artist behind an exclusive Courthouse on the Square Doctor Who comic book cover.
When city officials proclaimed Saturday as Doctor Who Day on the historic downtown Square, Ekiss and the staff at More Fun Comics and Games — where Ekiss was signing copies of the newly released book — had no idea the turnout was going to be as massive as it was.
“I probably signed 200 to 300 comic books today. … It was just awesome,” he said.

I first became aware of the Doctor Who Day in Denton, Texas thanks to an email from the folks at titancomics. From there I gathered more intel from the jakeekiss Tumblr page. The cover artist made sure to do a post also giving a shoutout to the series writer for Doctor Who: The Ninth Doctor #1, cavanscott, as well as the interior artist Blair Shedd. Last but not least Scott also made sure and plugged Denton’s comic book store, more-fun-comics-games.

Featuring: Colin Baker as the Doctor and Maggie Stables as the companion.
Set Between:  Bloodtide and The Sandman  
Stand Alone: No. (prequel to Project: Lazarus and also links to Project: Destiny)
Marks out of 10: 10/10

Summary of the Plot:
The Doctor and Evelyn go for a Chinese meal in south east London. After which they discover some strange goings on and decide to investigate. These strange things lead them to a casino. Although, how many casinos have an experimentation lab in the back?

Review:
I’ll start off by saying I wasn’t very impressed with the sixth doctor’s televised era. I had nothing against Colin Baker’s acting skills, rather the poor quality of the writing. The sixth Doctor’s big finish audios, however, are a breath of timey whimey fresh air. The Sixth doctor is much calmer in big finish dramas, in comparison to his almost psychotic personality in the TV series. Colin baker preforms brilliantly in this particular story, it’s as though he was born to play this role. Maggie Stables preforms very well alongside him. I like that they’ve got an older companion to break the chain of young earth girls and aliens. This audio drama introduces Cassie, who is Hex’s mother.

This story is very well written. The combination of penny dreadful type horror and science fiction, as well as the build-up of tension make for a story that you really get sucked into. The audio ends on a cliff hanger and is picked up in Project: Lazarus. Project: Destiny fills in the blanks
