Traveling on the TARDIS with The Doctor seemed like all fun and games for artist Gabby Gonzales at first. Now, having witnessed the death of a clone of her best friend, coupled with her acquiring a strange power she can barely comprehend, Gabby finds herself questioning everything she thought she knew about the mysterious man who dragged her away form a life waiting tables in her father’s restaurant.
The Doctor, for his part, is oblivious to Gabby’s torment. He’s too busy focusing on a different problem – one with dire consequences for the entire universe. In fact, matters are so dire that another player will have to set The Doctor straight, despite the great personal risk in doing so.
The miraculous thing about The Tenth Doctor comic is how it remains easily accessible to new readers while being steeped in its own mythology and the mythology of the original Doctor Who shows. Despite being largely concerned with set-up and tying-up loose ends from the previous stories, the script by Nick Abadzis explains everything new readers need to know smoothly and efficiently.
Those adverbs apply equally well to the artwork by Giorgia Sposito and Arianna Florean. Florean illustrates the scenes set in Gabby’s sketchbook to glorious effect, presenting a Disney-esque image of The Doctor’s adventures. Sposito’s more realistic artwork flows just as naturally and looks just as fantastic throughout the issue.
