Howdy to all you Grand Geeks and Gatherers out there! I hope everyone’s having a great old time trying to keep warm and keep up with your indie reading. I sure am! And with it seemingly on permanent cool-down here in my neck of the woods it’s much easier to do. So in my case I’m going to pull up a big cup of strong peppermint bark flavored coffee, snatch up my favorite books, and get to reading! Let’s see what looks good this week!
Doctor Who Comics #1
Writer(s): Jody Houser
Artist(s): Roberta Ingranata
Cover Artist(s): Peach Momoko, Christopher Jones, Mirka Andolfo, Rachael Stott
Publisher: Titan Comics
Synopsis: “Doctor Who returns with the comic debut of iconic 70s TV Villain! After narrowly escaping the Weeping Angels and the Autons in 1960s London, the Tenth and Thirteenth Doctor must team-up once again to save present-day Earth from being overrun by the classic aquatic villain, the Sea Devils! Who else can they turn to for help but Rose Tyler: leader of the human resistance!”
Wow, bringing forth iconic old villains from Classic Who into a modern age comic story. How wonderful an idea! And it reminds Whovians like I why Classic Who was such a great story. Alas, it is up 10 and 13 to save earth from the Sea Devils!
A Dark Interlude #1
Writer(s): Ryan O’Sullivan
Artist(s): Andrea Mutti
Cover Artist(s): Caspar Wijngaard, Ariela Kristantina, Tim Daniel, Nathan Gooden, Rebekah Isaacs
Publisher: Vault Comics
Synopsis: “After the stunning success of Fearscape, comes A Dark Interlude, the story of-No! The only offence to literature greater than the loathsome synopsis is the sequel. I will not stand idle while some poor excuse for an editor mangles and confuses my story, which is intact, perfect, and concluded, with this derivative drivel…”
Honestly, those that read and were captivated by Fearscape will have all the reason to follow up with this new ongoing. But it’s also good for those who enjoy their fantasy stories as well. Read on and enjoy!
And there we have it for the week, folks! More tales of everyone’s favorite Timelord combined with fantasy tales so spectacular one has to actually read it in order to enjoy it! These stories and so many more await you at the mere click of a button on your keyboards or at the touch of a screen on your tablets and/or phones. But I will ask you to take that extra step of devotion to local business and head down to your comic store this Wednesday and pick up the hard copy issues for yourselves! Read them and share with your friends. Start a conversation and be sure to leave a comment or two. But most importantly, remember…GGG!
