Doctor Who comics - ALL the Doctors!

IDW Publishing has been producing nice Doctor Who comics for several years, as well as nice reprints of older material. 2013 sees 50 years of Doctor Who.

For IDW's part in celebrating that they've created Prisoners of Time which looks like it will celebrate each of the eleven Doctors with an issue dedicated to each one which will carry fans through the whole year.

Issue #1 naturally starts with William Hartnell's Doctor. It appears to take place some time after the events in the The Web Planet series with Ian Chesterton, Barbara Wright, and Vikki Pallister recognizing the Zarbi and the Animus from Vortis.

A quick scan through the issue- the art is very nice by Simon Fraser. Scott & David Tipton captured the dialog of these old-school characters quite well.

The crazy thing is not two days before this issue hit the shelves I finished watching these episodes on my long slow trek through the classic Who. I don't think I'll be able to keep up with the series in time for the next issue.

Go check it out!
