More About the Author

Initially training to be a lawyer, Mike had always wanted to tell stories in pictures. Driven by a love of comics and animation he abandoned the life of a bewigged barrister and instead has spent the last 25 years writing and drawing adventures featuring the most iconic heroes in the US, UK and Europe.

For Marvel Comics he's drawn the X-Men, Sub-Mariner and most recently contributed to a Hugo nominated Captain Britain Graphic Novel 'Vampire State'. He's drawn Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and Flash amongst others, for DC Comics. For both companies, he's written and drawn graphic stories featuring the many incarnations of Star Trek. In the UK he's been the main artist on the relaunched Doctor Who franchise, recently drawing the first BBC commissioned graphic novel Only Good Dalek, working with long time Doctor Who novelist Justin Richards.

For Norway, he's the artist on the Varg Veum series of graphic novels, written by the character's creator Gunnar Staalesen.

He's also author of the first Welsh language graphic novel Y Mabinogi, itself an adaptation of an animated feature based on the Welsh myth cycle. Outside of comics, he's also written for the Star Trek book series - 'Starfleet Corps of Engineers'.

Based in Cardiff, Wales his studio is a stone's throw away from The Rift featured in the Torchwood TV series. Often, after a day spent drawing the comic book adventures of Doctor Who he finds himself walking through the filming of the actual show.

As a storyboard artist, Mike has worked on many pre-school shows, Horrid Henry; Bobinogs; Claude; Cym Teg; Fireman Sam; Grandpa In My Pocket; Hana's Helpline; Igam Ogam and more. He storyboarded the BAFTA nominated short Day On The Beach, and recently worked on storyboards for the Ultramarines CGI movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fitting Tribute! 12 Jan 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I received this book today and I love it so far! It collects Prisoners of Time Volumes 1, 2 and 3 and follows the Doctor through all (at the time) eleven of his incarnations with a common threat linking each of them together. The plot of the book is clever and the resolution is satisfying, it's a shame it can never be made into a tv story! I find the writers and artists have done well to capture the mannerisms of each Doctor although sometimes they may say or do something a little out of character. The only Doctor who appears (visually) a little strange is the 8th Doctor, the artist hasn't really captured Paul McGann's likeness in the same way the others have which is a shame but doesn't spoil the story. As all Doctors up to the (at the time) current eleventh incarnation are featured, this reminds me very much of "The Forgotten", another multi-doctor story giving them each their own chance shine. I particularly like the arc running throughout the book, it links the stories together but doesn't feel like too much as sometimes arc-heavy storylines can detract from the individual stories or episodes. The hardback presentation of this book is very nice and the summaries of each Doctor at the end of each chapter offer a brief insight into their respective eras. A fitting tribute in the 50th anniversary year!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Celebration! 24 Jan 2014
This hardback collection of all 12 issues of IDW's Doctor Who:Prisoners Of Time is quite frankly a fantastic celebration of the time travelling madman with a box.

The format is fairly simple, each issue focuses solely on one of the 11 incarnations of the Doctor - issue 1 William Hartnell, Issue 2 Patrick Troughton and so on. Whilst the issues consist on the whole of stand alone stories each installment ends with a cliffhanger. The danger with this approach is that it runs the risk of becoming a bit tiresome as the series progresses - fortunately the writers obviously thought of this and there are gradually introduced developments along the way.

Without spoiling to much the basic story involves a mysterious hooded figure who is attacking the various versions of the Doctor across his life-span and kidnapping his companions (this usually follows the main adventure of each issue). Surprisingly the villain is unmasked in Issue 9 although to explain why would give the game away (maybe I just did?!)

It is only the 11th Doctor who doesn't get his own standalone tale. It is his job to take the reader to the finale of the piece in Issue 12.

I would rate the chapters/issues in order of favourites as follows:-

Issue 3 - my favourite. This 3rd Doctor tale captures the feel of a 70's adventure perfectly with UNIT figuring heavily.
Issue 9 - the revelation, at last!
Issue 10 - the 10th Doctor visiting 1950's Hollywood and encountering an old foe of the 2nd Doc.
Issue 11 - fills in all the gaps, Matt Smith style!
Issue 7 - an atmospheric tale set in Scotland.
Issue 6 - appearance by an old foe who plays a key role in the overall arc. Cameo by the 10th Doctor.
Issue 1 - good introduction to the event.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hard to put down 30 Mar 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
What an amazing and epic story. I liked how each episode keeps wanting me to know more. As each episode progressed the more the villain revealed his or herself. and when that villain was revealed it was a completely unexpected but plausible surprise. I have been enjoying IDW Doctor Who publications since its birth and this anniversary edition exceeded all expectations. I enjoyed the artist version of the Doctors and I welcome the their artistic impression of the actors that portrayed them. But for die hard fans, in my opinion the drawing of the 2nd, 10th and 11th Doctor were the most accurate.
I thoroughly recommend this book to any Doctor Who fan from 6 to 60 years old and beyond!

5.0 out of 5 stars An Amazing Celebration Of 50 Years Of Doctor Who 21 Jan 2014
By Rocky Sunico - Published on Amazon.com
Each issue essentially covers a standalone adventure for the Doctor. In each period, the Doctor and his companions go through an adventure and towards the end the companions are made to disappear somehow. As the overall series progresses, we get more and more glimpses of the man behind the kidnappings and the Doctor also gets more and more insight into who is attacking his various incarnations in this manner. Given it's a 12-issue series, you know things will end with a big confrontation between the Doctor and this hooded figure in one rather epic conclusion to things.

The quality of the writing is pretty good all-throughout. As much as the Doctor is supposed to be one character with many faces, we have to admit that he takes on rather unique personalities withe very regeneration. And thus to write stories for each of those Doctors means being able to highlight how each Doctor is different but at the same time still show that he's he same man. That's not an easy task for anyone. But the Tiptons manage to get this done.

The villain in this story was a very nice reveal, I have to admit. Hooray for the Tipton's clever use of an existing TV character to really bring this story together. The motivations of our villain are pretty understandable given past circumstances and thus the adventure doesn't feel too cheap. Sure, it doesn't exactly end with one of the best endings for any comic book, but it still makes for quite the enjoyable comic book adventure.

If you ever want to get into the recent Doctor Who comics, then Prisoners of Time is a nice entry point for you to get acquainted with how the Doctor works in this medium.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazingly great comic! 5 Jan 2014
By Jordan Strange - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought this comic because I enjoyed the Doctor Who/ Star Trek: TNG crossover. I had seen the covers of this story and was intrigued by a comic of twelve issues that featured every incarnation of the Doctor (Except for John Hurt).

The art is beautiful, the story is superb, and the villain is not who I expected. It's someone we have seen before but not for a long time. And it is awesome to see several of the Doctor's greatest, and sometimes lesser known monsters.

But the thing that truly makes this book shine is the twelfth chapter. It gives us something that we all would love to see, a team-up of all incarnations of the Doctor.

All I can say is that if you have never read a Doctor Who comic before this is one that you will never forget. And to quote th Ninth Doctor it's absolutely Fantastic.
