- Stories by Alan and Steve Moore (no relation) and art by Dave Gibbons amongst others. If you like British comic book artists and authors, you'll love this.
- It's in colour, and the originals were not.
- The original comics were *much* larger than these omnibuses, so the artwork has been shrunk to fit. It's been done well - you're not missing the edges, and there's no distortion or loss of detail - but you just know it would have looked better in its original dimensions.
- It's in colour, and the original were not.*
* I know that's in twice, but while I think the colourisation has been really well done, I did like the original black and white work...
Excellent artwork and brilliant stories, you need this if you're a fan of the Doctor.

However, the Panini Comics books seem to be out of print, though you can pick up a couple of new and used books from independent sellers. I probably should have purchased Panini, but then again, I would have had to purchase possibly three of the Panini Comics books to get the same comic strips that are presented in this omnibus edition. (In essence, I would have had to pay more for the Panini strips in shorter-length volumes.) And even though the omnibus edition seems a little cramped, with shorter height (not length), they are at least in full color--apparently, from what I have heard, Doctor Who Magazine did not publish their original comic strips in color until the era of the Eighth Doctor, and it's quite likely that the Panini books would have been in black and white. (The Glorious Dead was in black and white.)
So, you are left with a sort of conundrum--black and white, yet larger format (like a regular comic book) with commentary from writers/artists from Panini, or the slightly cheaper/larger in length omnibus version that does have colorized strips? You decide.
