Seventies strips that stand the test of time.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Doctor Who: The Iron Legion: v. 1 (Paperback)
I grew up reading these strips; I remember them as being brilliant. However I still thought I was taking a gamble when I bought them for my seven year old son. Sure I was seven when I read them, but we're always being told that kids have different expectations these days; after all these strips are in black and white, not full blown colour, and they're full length stories with lots of parts.
I needn't of worried; these strips certainly do stand the test of time and appeal just as well to the current generation - my seven year old son sat up reading the strip avidly way past his bedtime, and as soon as he was asleep the eleven year old was in to steal the book to read it himself, and they both agreed it was a great story and they liked the "skeleton guy" (the cyborg gladiator Morris) and was sad when he died. So if your younger who-fans are curious enough about the old series to care for the adventures of the fourth doctor, this is a great purchase; or if like me, you're an aging Doctor Who fan who's a nostalgia junky, you might just want it for yourself.
