Marketing Copy:

Industry legend Dave Gibbons illustrated a classic run of Doctor Who comics, and this oversized book collects them all! And in full color!

Gibbons-drawn strips began appearing the very first issue of Doctor Who Magazine (then titled Doctor Who Weekly), starring the Fourth Doctor as portrayed by Tom Baker, and Gibbons continued as the primary artist until issue #69, a Fifth Doctor tale.

This volume also features an introduction by Gibbons, along with early Doctor Who sketches from the master.

My Review:

I am a Doctor Who fan from way back, and the Fourth Doctor (Tom Baker) was my absolute favourite.  Gibbons uses the fourth Doctor as his basis for this wonderful collection.  You get it all in here, weredogs, squishy monsters and even Daleks in a great number of individual stories that kept my attention.

The highlight for me was when the Doctor turned into a weredog himself!  Great stuff.  This is well drawn and the stories read just like the old televsion shows in that serialised fashion.  Even the Doctor has that cheekiness that made him so watchable.

If you love your Doctor Who (and who doesn’t), then this is a must.

My Rating:

5 tardis out of 5
