Doctor Who: Four Doctors by Paul Cornell
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I think this is Titan Books first big event series, and it's cool because it's a multi-Doctor story, which is always fun. Having just read Paul Cornell's Witches of Lychford], I wasn't sure what to expect with him handling a comic series but had high hopes. Unfortunately, this didn't quite live up to those hopes. I think that falls more on me than anything else, as I haven't kept up to date with the main series for 10, 11, & 12, so I wasn't as familiar with what was going on with their respective characters. Overall tho, the story is still a little on the jumbled side, and part of me really wishes that this would have been something that could have been filmed as a special rather than have it in comic form, as I think this story would have held up much better on the TV.
Either way, we've got 10, 11, & 12, all together for the first time; we've got paradoxes, the Time War, new monsters, and a new villain that I wasn't quite expecting, along with several nods to some of each of the Doctor's larger storylines. I think had I been more up to date on each of the various series, I would have actually enjoyed this way more, so if you've been reading the various comic series and are a fan, I'd highly recommend this volume.

I simply want to read.
I'll more than likely occasionally post on here what I've been reading, and if there is something that really blows my mind, I'll probably have more to say about it and may write up a proper post, but for right now, things are going to be very quiet around here.
As always, happy reading!
2017 editI will continue to blog according to my health and ability, and connecting my posts thru Goodreads, so please be patient if things get quiet around here again this year. 2017 edit #2I am happy to report that my bone marrow transplant was a success and that I'm feeling more like myself everyday. That said, I'm going to try to start blogging a little more frequently, but please bear with me as I still continue to recover.
