The Doctor is in



As the delayed DOCTOR WHO #1 is ready to debut--we have printed copies in hand here, and the book finally hits in two weeks, I thought it'd be nice to show some of issue 2. Nick Roche had to bow out on interiors but Jose Maria Beroy, the artist who did VULCANS for us, pitched in, and his work on the issue just fit the mood of the story and the time period so nicely (especially when aided by Charlie Kirchoff's vibrant colors).

In other news, did anyone at all get a room for Comic-Con today? That system of releasing all the rooms at one time never works for me--the phone is constantly busy, the Web site is locked up... it's nice to at least have a back-up plan of an actual residence not far from the con, since the hotel reservation situation gets more challenging every year.

A great artist and very expressive narrator. It was doing a lot of time that I did not see Beroy's new works.

Wow.
I can't WAIT to see this. Gary Russel is an excellent writer, and frankly a different take on the New Series is what I need ATM (rather loosing interest in the RTD era).

Considering that the BBC seems to be managing the Doctor Who brand pretty closely, and Gary Russell is a script editor for the series, and one of the people who works on approving licensed Doctor Who fiction, I can't imagine this series will be too different from the current series...

"Slightly different" is still different....

The art, I LOVE.
Is the shot of Tennant in the frilly shirt and intentional reference to Jon Pertwee's Doctor (who DID dress like that)?
If so, VERY cool.

Catches Martha so well, and I'd be yawning along with the Doctor to be sure...

Chris Ryall said...

That's definitely a nod to Pertwee's Doctor, yessir. One of the nice little touches Gary brings to his scripts

A continuity reference from Gary - who'd have thought THAT could happen? ;)

The new art is a real treat and Gary's comics writing is always good fun. Looking forward to seeing the end result!

as a UK resident,and therefore a longtime WHO viewer,i have to say i'm over the moon about this new US comic book launch,and apart from the fact that i'm not drawing it,i hope it is a massive success.
