This Week’s Must Read: Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor: Year Two #16
Of all the many Doctor Who books Titan Comics has produced since gaining the license a few years ago, I think The Tenth Doctor series has been the most consistently excellent. Nick Abadzis drew upon the mythology of both the Classic and “New Who” eras whilst adding his own unique ideas into the great hodgepodge of wibbly-wobbly mess that makes up the Doctor Who universe. This issue – the first part of the finale of “Year Two” – promises an epic conclusion to a storyline that saw the return of one of the greatest villains of the original series.
Pull List: Action Comics #968, Batman Beyond #2, Detective Comics #945, Flash #11, Future Quest #7, Hal Jordan & The Green Lantern Corps #7, Teen Titans #2, Titans #5, Wonder Woman #11, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #64, All-New X-Men Annual #1, Amazing Spider-Man Annual #1, Cage #2, Captain Marvel #10, Civil War II #7, Death Of X #4 [Review], Doctor Strange And The Sorcerers Supreme #2, Prowler #2, Ultimates II #1, Venom #1
This Week’s Must Read: Star Wars #25
Jason Aaron’s Star Wars series hits #25! It’s also been great for 25 issues! What a triumph! This issue continues the showdown between our Rebel Alliance heroes and the badass SCAR squadron of Stormtroopers. There are a handful of comics out from a galaxy far, far away but this is still the best. Jorge Molina’s art is also incredibly beautiful if, for some reason, you need even more reason to get into new Star Wars stories set in the time between Episodes IV and V.
Buy these comics at your local comic book store (Don’t know where that is? Here you go.), from Things From Another Universe, or digitally via Comixology.com.
