The Ninth Doctor is back – in comic form.
I bought the title at least in part for the Alice XZ cover. I’m glad for that, too, because the inside was really not very good. Poor likenesses, disjointed storytelling, and lack of characterization all mar Nine’s first outing since ‘Parting of the Ways.’ The only thing I liked were the images of the monsters; comics offer so much more opportunity in terms of aliens than TV possibly can.
There’s one more title with an Alice XZ cover, but if the insides don’t improve, I may not be collecting all 5 after all.
