Doctor Who V3 #5

OK, this bit about having female companions fall for the Doctor really has to stop.

Doctor Who Volume 3 #9

IDW Publishing (May, 2013)

“Sky Jacks” part 1 of 4
WRITERS: Andy Diggle & Eddie Robson
ARTIST: Andy Kuhn
COLORIST: Charlie Kirchoff
EDITOR: Denton J. Tipton

Clara makes her US comic debut after pressing a button in the TARDIS she was instructed not to press. Rescued by a plane carrying a third bomb heading for Japan during World War 2, she finds herself in an endless sky…and the Doctor with a beard.

What they got right: While I miss Amy & Rory, I suppose it is right to have the current companion. The artwork is pretty good.

What they got wrong: It’s tough to really judge anything because this whole issue is just one big set-up. I have seen this done before in a episode of the animated Star Trek, so we’ll have to see where it goes.

Recommendation: As things stand, I can’t condone or condemn the comic. It’s all just set-up and will require at least the next issue if not all four parts of the arc to make a decision. I hate when comics do that. There isn’t even a decent Best Scene nomination.
