I have basically given up on the current Doctor Who comics. They really just did not hold my interest and the stories tended to drag on ad nauseam. But I picked this one up as part of the recent Free Comic Day event because, why not. It was free. And surprisingly, it was much better than any Doctor Who comic I had read in a long time.
This issue is comprised of four short vignettes, each one featuring a different Doctor. The tales were fun, quirky, and a little bit thought provoking too. Basically, everything you would expect from Doctor Who.
The story featuring the eleventh Doctor, entitled “Obsessions,” was my favorite. We all have obsessions, and they can be motivating. But obsession is a proverbial double-edged sword. Obsessions can block personal advancement just as effectively as it can foster it.
Obsessions are all very well to keep one going—but they’re also rather nifty at bringing you to a skidding halt.
I’m glad I picked this up and read it. It was good, but not good enough to entice me to start reading Doctor Who on a regular basis again. There is way too much other stuff vying for the attention of my reading obsession.
