Doctor Who: Prisoners of Time #11 cover by Francesco FrancavillaDoctor Who: Prisoners Of Time #11
Written by Scott & David Tipton
Art by Matthew Dow Smith and Charlie Kirchoff
Cover by Francesco Francavilla, Charlie Kirchoff, Dave Sim
IDW Publishing
Publication Date: November 13, 2013
Cover Price: $3.99

If only it were possible that Doctor Who: Prisoners of Time could be a simulcast event. What an amazing spectacle it would be… but therein lies the charm of this comic series: Scott and David Tipton are able to jump through time and grab Doctors and Companions as we remember them – amalgamating them into a major story that has become the comic book story of the year as far as I am concerned.

Issue #11 of Prisoners of Time shifts gears from the previous issues. Whereas 1-10 all had a particular stand-alone adventure for each Doctor, with an ongoing arc in which a Nemesis is kidnapping the companions; in this installment, the issue BEGINS with the kidnapping – forcing the Matt Smith Doctor to investigate where this man from his past (and now his enemy) could be.

Guest NCBD Picks by Blake Northcott

Rat Queens #3 cover by Roc Upchurch, Image ComicsRat Queens #3 (Image Comics – $3.50) returns this month, with two different covers by Roc Upchurch. And each cover, upon inspection, perfectly reflects the tone of the series.

Cover A depicts the titular quartet of hell-raising women doing what they do best: wreaking havoc. Creatures are stabbed, blood flies, and Hannah, the Elven mage, conjures a little magic to top it off. Cover B is more of a pin-up, but Violet – the hipster Dwarf – isn’t your stereotypical comic book pin-up model. She’s filthy, bloodstained, and beaten from her most recent brawl, with a nasty gash marking her left cheek. The look on her face says it all; it feels like a derisive message to the status quo, breaking through the fourth wall. “No, I’m not a sex kitten in a spandex outfit…I kick asses for a living. Deal with it.”

Release Date: November 06, 2013
Cover Price: $3.99

The 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who is almost here, and the days are counting down until the release of The Day Of The Doctor and An Adventure In Space And Time. Meanwhile, IDW continues their ongoing celebration of the anniversary with the tenth installment of Prisoners Of Time, a multi-Doctor story spanning twelve issues. It has been the comic event of the year as far as I am concerned.

With issue #10, we turn to the David Tennant era of Doctor Who. The Tenth Doctor and companion Martha Jones arrive in Los Angeles at the Griffith Observatory during the 1950s, where Hollywood filmmakers are creating a robot-packed sci-fi movie at the location. As Martha is swept off into becoming a star in the movie, the Doctor learns that numerous members of the cast and crew are disappearing.

Release Date: October 2, 2013
Cover Price: $3.99

Entering into the new era of Doctor Who, Prisoners Of Time centers on the Christopher Eccleston Doctor, and his companion Rose – in a standalone adventure that would have made a great television episode. But more importantly, we finally get some answers in this chapter, including the identity of the previously unknown nemesis that has been kidnapping the companions of all the Doctor’s incarnations.

Sometime after the Doctor’s first visit to Satellite 5 and before his return to it, he takes Rose to the Grand and Glorious Monument to Drake Ayelbourne of Altair VII. Suggested to be the wealthiest human in the galaxy, the Doctor claims the man dwarfs the likes of Bill Gates, Howard Hughes, and Scrooge McDuck combined.

Francesco Francavilla Breaking Bad Posters

See that image above? It is two separate posters by artist Francesco Francavilla showing non-spoilery images from the first and last episode of the recently completed TV series Breaking Bad. Many of Francavilla’s fans have been asking if he will be selling the posters anywhere, and sure enough he has announced on his blog that they will be on sale. The downside is that there will be a very limited print run, so if you want one of these you better move fast.

Go to Francavilla’s art sales website here and pick up one or both of these very cool posters for $30 each, but you only have until 2pm ET on Saturday, October 5, 2013 to pre-order them. After that he will count how many orders he got, print off that number of posters, and that will be it.

Doctor Who: Prisoners Of Time #8Doctor Who: Prisoners Of Time #8
Written by Scott & David Tipton
Art by Roger Langridge, Charlie Kirchoff
Covers by Francesco Francavilla, Charlie Kirchoff, Dave Sim
IDW Publishing
Release Date: August 28, 2013
Cover Price: $3.99

I’ve always likened the Paul McGann era of Doctor Who to be the transitional stage between Classic Who and Nu Who. Despite having only been in one television adventure, the McGann incarnation of the Doctor is interesting in that this 8th version of the Time Lord has had possibly more explorations in print than most of the other Doctors.

Despite my praising, I also often feel that McGann got the raw end of the stick in the Whoniverse – having only had one televised adventure and never since been given a chance to make an appearance in the modern series. (Come on, Steven Moffat; let him show up in a Multi Doctor story!!!)

So it was with great anticipation that I received the eighth issue of Doctor Who: Prisoners of Time, focusing on the McGann Doctor. Although it’s never specified how far along in his incarnation he is within the confines of this issue, the comic finds him arriving back in San Francisco in February 2000, to meet up with his companion from the TV movie, Grace.

Written by Scott & David Tipton

Covers by Francesco Francavilla, Charlie Kirchoff, Dave Sim
IDW Publishing
Release Date: July 31, 2013
Cover Price: $3.99

Doctor Who: Prisoners of Time now turns to concentrate on the final Doctor from the Classic era, originally played by Sylvester McCoy, representing the Gallifreyan’s seventh incarnation. With a breath of fresh air, Scott and David Tipton step back from the continuing overarching plot, allowing this single adventure in which the Doctor faces off against the Master to have more space.

Across the vast expanse of space and time, an unnamed foe is reaching out into multiple points of the Doctor’s timeline and abducting his companions. Meanwhile, the Seventh Doctor, along with awesome companion Ace, arrives in Scotland in 1830, discovering a strange plot involving an aristocratic family and their manor.

The Lone Ranger #16The Lone Ranger #16
Written by Ande Parks
Art by Esteve Polls
Colors by Marcello Pinto
Letters by Simon Bowland
Cover by Francesco Francavilla
Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: July 10, 2013
Cover Price: $3.99

The Lone Ranger #16 is yet another shining example of how to make a great comic book. Honestly, I’m really tired of this book not getting the recognition that it deserves.

In this issue, writer Ande Parks takes us back to those thrilling days of yesteryear. The Ranger and Tonto have to travel to Chicago to track down the villain of the arc. It’s got some great fish out of water elements, and tastefully deals with the racism against Native Americans at that time in this country’s past. The book is also sprinkled with humor, as The Ranger learns that walking around in a big city wearing a leather mask doesn’t quite go so well. The villain of this story arc is particularly entertaining. He’s more than the stereotypical western bad guy. Hat’s off to Ande for turning the western genre on it’s ear and coming up with some truly unique characters.
