Usually when it’s a comic book tie-in with popular TV program, the comic book usually sucks. The art is not up to par and the stories and world-building does not tie-in enough to the TV show, there is a disconnect of sorts. But over the past year, I have the pleasure of reading the various Doctor Who releases by Titan Comics and it’s been a blast. Each creative team on the books have done a fine job building upon the Doctor Who universe and mythos. Marvel and DC comics may dominate the comic-book racks, but if you’re looking for something different and something British, then look for these Titan Comics’ Doctor Who books dropping Wednesday, July 29, 2015 at your local comic book store.
