    I've been wanting to read a Doctor Who comic for a while now and

    I've been wanting to read a Doctor Who comic for a while now and found this at my local B&N. There's a wealth of cross-over material featuring the good doctor in all his incarnations but rather to read a retelling of an original TV episode I wanted something that was it's own because I thought that would offer the creative talent the best opportunity to use the medium. And this book certainly does that. Although the story isn't totally original - A TV Episode called "Victory of the Daleks" Has the same premise but is set during WW2 - it would fit easily into the Doctor Who cannon. The companions are exclusive to this story but don't really feature heavily with the Doctor taking control of every situation and the action comes thick and fast. The Doctor still uses his wits and superior intelligence to achieve his goals but it all seems a bit rushed and sudden which is my problem with the story elements of this graphic novel. They never stop moving. The doctor seems to be running or moving in almost every frame and his companions are just keeping up. I would have thought that the medium would afford the writer more opportunity to use the Doctors analytical skills and devious cunning to defeat his sworn enemy. The story isn't bad by any means but the pace needed slowing down, IMO.

    The artwork, though, is outstanding. Detailed characters and every inch of the frame used. the colors are vibrant and varied and the characters fully fleshed out. An old castle, german U-boat factory and Dalek mothership are all featured in this book and I often found my eye wondering the vibrant colors and renderings.

    In the end I give this book 3 stars because I thought the Doctor could have been written with more depth and humor and that the pace was a little too quick for my liking. But full marks for the art work and coloring and the story-line - be it somewhat borrowed.
