REVIEWS

Rodrigo

Doctor Who #1
Tony Lee (w) • Al Davison (a) • Paul Grist, Al Davison (c)

At long last Doctor Who is an ongoing monthly series! Tony Lee (Doctor Who: The Forgotten), kicks off the time/space-faring series with the two-part “Silver Scream.” In chapter one, the Doctor travels to 1920s Hollywood where he befriends Charlie Chaplin and, of course, discovers an alien plot! Lee is joined by Al Davison (The Dreaming) on this first story arc. Covers by Paul Grist and Davison.

Matthew

The House of Mystery #15

Written by Matthew Sturges; Art by Luca Rossi and David Hahn; Cover by Esao Andrews

Harry’s true identity, Fig’s heritage, Rina’s heartbreak, a dragon’s unrequited love and the Thinking Man’s Army all converge in a very small space in this shattering conclusion to “The Space Between”. And somewhere in there we manage to squeeze in “Jordan’s Movie Idea with the Gorillas and Sh*t,” illustrated by David Hahn (BITE CLUB, FABLES).

MAJOR SPOILERS DISCUSSION

The Last Iron Fist Story

Many years ago, in the mystical city of Kun’ Lun, young Danny Rand stared at a suit behind glass – the garb of the “Immortal Iron Fist” – and knew that he was destined to wear it. But where did this costume come from? Why did it wait for Danny all those years like a shadow of his future? The answer to those questions will stun both him and his readers, as Danny Rand leaps from the pages of his breakout hit in Daredevil to his own history-spanning kung-fu epic that will shatter every perception of what it means to be the Immortal Iron Fist! Brought to you by top-ten writer Ed Brubaker and breakout talent Matt Fraction (Punisher War Journal), with action-packed art by David Aja (Daredevil, Giant-Size Wolverine). Collects Immortal Iron Fist #1-6.

    Time wise I know it takes place after Civil War, maybe even after WWH, the latest Heroes for Hire team was disolved after WWH and we don’t see Black Cat and the other Heroes for Hire helping Misty and Colleen.

    @Rodrigo: you’re right the speedster in Captain America IS named Spitfire, she’s still alive as a vampire in Captain Britain an MI-13 by the way.

    Hi guys,

    I never did the art on any of the issues, I’m the WRITER. :-)

    Sorry the reviewer didn’t get the story, but two little things –

    1) it’s very clearly explained in the dialogue that this ISN’T Charlie Chaplin (yes, we discovered that certain aspects of the ‘Little Tramp’ were copyrighted)

    2) He’s THE DOCTOR, not DOCTOR WHO.

    Cheers.

      Yeah, that was my bad…

      The art on the limited series that I was referring to was by Pia Guerra (mostly), and was quite good, while the story was by… Well, you.

      I was about to correct Rodrigo on the use of “Doctor Who,” but got sidetracked by something else (probably a spectral funnel cake.)

    I am NOT Nelly.

    We often get confused, though. It’s my abs.

    Hey Matthew! Thanks for the “dedication” and for getting the last name right <== a rare accomplishment…

    As usual, a great issue of the Podcast. Keep it up!
