Doctor Who: The Ripper: 11/03/11

cover art

er art (Link goes to Powells)" width="132" height="200" border="1" align="right">With Matt Smith taking over as the Eleventh Doctor, there is a new series of comics. The first of which is Doctor Who: The Ripper by Tony Lee.

Although The Ripper will mostly be about the Doctor, Amy Pond and Rory going against Jack the Ripper, the first issue (and the only one included in the NetGalley preview) is an introductory adventure involving a planet inhabited by holograms. Put that together with the TARDIS and email spam and imagine the consequences.

The artwork is good. The characters look like the actors in the series. It took a page for me to recognize Rory but I was more taken aback by all the other weirdness going on inside the TARDIS.

Four stars.

Doctor Who plus comic plus Jack the Ripper looks really my kind of thing. Must check this out. Thanks for the review x
