Join the Doctor in the 41st century in The Twelfth Doctor #2.8. With no consistent assistant he’s still manages to find help wherever he goes. Lucky for the Doctor there’s Hattie in the 41st century. Hattie is a punk bassist who loves 20th century punk music. Her and the Doctor have crossed paths with Jakob. Jakob says that he’s been framed for murder. Well these three have been caught by the Foxkin. Foxkin are highly evolved forms of your common fox it seems. These fox people have been in the business of cloning humans actually. Funny thing to keep yourselves busy with, but I’m not one to judge. If you could keep it a secret though, the humans don’t know that they’ve been created by the Foxkin.

It’s been a little over a month since I last reviewed a Doctor Who comic. Well, I’m glad to see that with The Twelfth Doctor #2.8, it hasn’t lost it’s form. George Mann has crafted a story worthy of consuming. When your reading the dialogue you can hear the characters. Even with Doctor Who being very out there in Sci-fi, the dialogue still feels organic. Mann keeps you engaged the whole time. 2000 years in the future is a hard time to imagine, I have hard time imagining the next Iphone. George has the hard job of keepig the Doctor authentic though; George’s Peter Capaldi I think is spot on.

Mariano Laclaustra has a great eye for Peter Capaldi. His facial expressions really bring out the character. One of the Mariano’s has a way with eyebrows, which is great for Peter Capaldi’s Doctor. I know it sounds weird to just start talking about Peter’s eyebrows, but its the first thing I notice about his of the Doctor. Much like with Jack black in his characters, but not as animated as Jack’s. Another thing about The Twelfth Doctor #2.8 is the coloring. Carlos Cabrera and Juan Manuel Tumbrus have really brought the book to life. There are plenty of great black and white comics but…when you can have color, I say go for it. Carlos and Juan did a superb job.

Go ahead and purchase the book. Titan Comics have done a great job with all the Doctors. Check out my other reviews here. I’ve mentioned this before, but I prefer my Doctors in comic book format, I do enjoy the television series. But it could be my bias too. One more thing to mention before I sign off here, I can safely recommend this for young readers too. If you’re looking to break your niece, brother, or grandkid into comics, this is a great series. Doctor Who comics are everything thats good about comic books.
