I liked this first issue. I thought it was a bit slow to start, but it had picked up quite a lot by the end. I liked the way the Doctor was in Gabby's family's restaurant but didn't actually meet Gabby there. Very much like an episode of the series would have played out. Looking forward to the next issue.
Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor #1
From Titan Comics, hitting comic book stores on July 23rd are new adventures featuring the Tenth Doctor.
Gabriella Gonzalez is stuck in a dead-end job in her family’s New York Laundromat, dreaming of college and bigger, better and brighter things.
So when a strange man with an even stranger big blue box barges into her life on the eve of the Day of the Dead celebrations – talking about an infestation of psychic aliens – she seizes her chance for adventure with both hands.
After Donna’s tragic exit, the Doctor thought he was done with new companions. But Gabby Gonzalez is going to prove him wrong… if she survives the night!
In the first comic of this series, we get to meet, and learn about Gabby. Pressured into working at her family’s laundromat, she also attends night school. She is discontent with her life, and her family is holding her back from pursuing her dreams. Gabby is spunky, and determined. It’s clear that she will make a great companion for our beloved Doctor.
Odd things start happening, people are seeing disturbing things, and of course where there is unnatural occurrences, The Doctor appears.
I loved how we get to know Gabby, it reminded me a bit of when Doctor Who first came back to our television screens with “Rose”.
The story is entertaining, and the wonderful artwork makes you part of the adventure. It will keep you reading, and wanting more. I can’t wait to see the next installment!
