5.0 out of 5 stars Change my dear, and it seems not a moment too soon..., 4 Jan 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Doctor Who - Voyager (Complete Sixth Doctor Comic Strips Vol. 1) (Paperback)
Black and white and drawn by John Ridgway, the Sixth Doctor strips were being written at a time when comics were having a real renaissance. Alan Moore was at the height of his powers writing Watchmen, Dark Knight Returns was out, this willingness to explore what the form could do definitely informed the writing of Steve Parkhouse and Alan McKenzie, meaning that the Sixth Doctor's comic book adventures show a sense of imagination rarely bettered in the comic strips or the TV show.

The Doctor gets a shapeshifting companion in Frobisher (the Penguin on the cover of the book) who talks like he's from Noo Yawk. Frobisher starts out as a bad guy, tracking down the Doctor for Greenbackalike Josiah Dogbolter, before boarding the TARDIS. Then there's a big dream logic adventure in Voyager, as Death forces the Doctor to search for stolen charts of the universe. Voyager isn't the end of the story though and there is much more mindbending and timebending work along the way.

The art is perfect for the book. Colin Baker's likeness is well captured and there is enough realism in the style that it convinces you of the fictional world that the Doctor inhabits.

It's a lot smarter than most episodes of the TV show, whichever version you prefer. Read it and enjoy!
