Comic Book Review: Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor #1



DOCTOR WHO THE ELEVENTH DOCTOR #1Writers: Al Ewing and Rob Williams

Artist: Simon Fraser

Publisher: Titan Comics

Release Date: July 23, 2014

Synopsis:
A stunning new era begins for the Eleventh Doctor, as played by Matt Smith!

Alice Obiefune has just lost her mother when the Doctor explodes into her life.

But what does this grieving young woman have to do with the career of a 70s musician, an amnesiac alien, and a terrifying cosmic threat?

In the wake of the second Big Bang, find out what the Doctor gets up to when Amy and Rory aren’t around!

Series architects Al Ewing (Loki: Agent of Asgard, Mighty Avengers, Trifecta) and Rob Williams (Revolutionary War, Ordinary, Miss Fury, The Royals: Masters of War, Trifecta) kick off a whirlwind adventure through eternity with artist Simon Fraser (Nikolai Dante, Grindhouse, Doctor Who)!

Now this, I love. It starts with a bang and has continuous bangs throughout. Wait until you see the first alien — and no, it isn’t The Doctor. The visuals in this issue are just terrific. Great alien, great Doctor, great color, even great, effective use of grays.

Then there’s the story. It’s really a whole story in one issue, but clearly there’s a lot more to come. It’s fun, it’s sweet story, but with just a tinge of sadness, and kindness, not just a total romp. It’s very, very Eleventh Doctor. And the new, albeit temporary, companion has some depth and some moxie and I like her a lot.

The writers and artist for this issue have done a wonderful job of capturing and even adding a bit to the Eleventh Doctor’s heart(s) and charm and energy and fun, and I really can’t wait to see the next issue.

I give Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor #1 Five Out of Five Stars.
