This Week’s Must Read: Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor: Year Two #3
Rather than try and choose one of the many excellent titles Tom Taylor has written this week, I’m going to once again declare my love for Titan Comics’ The Twelfth Doctor series. The current storyline by Robbie Morrison – involving The Doctor investigating strange goings-on in a small fishing village while Clara looks into the disappearance of a colleague at an exclusive private school – has wonderfully captured the spirit of both the current and classic eras of the show. And the artwork by Rachael Stott has been uniformly amazing.
You should be reading Mighty Thor. It’s amazing. Jason Aaron made Odinson a brutal, complex character in Thor: God of Thunder and he’s doing the same for Jane Foster. There’s so much depth to Jane as Thor–she vulnerable and fierce. Her take no crap attitude is aimed directly at Odin in the showdown that’s been building since Odinson lost the hammer in Original Sin. I can’t wait to see how Aaron develops this mega-brawl and how it impacts Jane for the continued development of the series.
