Christmas day, and it can mean only one thing—a magical, old man travels from far away to give us a wonderful, new present. This year's Doctor Who Christmas episode, “The Snowmen,” saw some changes for the last of the Time Lords.
Here we are in the middle of “The Death of Everyone.” Invincible #99 gives us part two of the story that will conclude next month with Issue #100. In the previous issue, Dinosaurus triggered a massive global flood in order to wipe out the world's coastal cities. In this issue, the Guardians of the Globe are stretched to the limit as they concentrate on disaster relief in the afflicted cities while Invincible is left to deal with Dinosaurus.
There is nothing quite like Depression-era serials. While they may have outdated views and storytelling techniques have changed, they can always be counted on to capture your imagination. One of the most famous sci-fi heroes of this period is Flash Gordon, and Titan Books has put out a collection of his adventures titled The Complete Flash Gordon Library - The Tyrant of Mongo Volume 2.
A two-and-a-half-hour opera set during the French Revolution may not strike everyone as a great movie, but those naysayers are fools. Les Misérables is easily one of the best movies of the year.
Amy decides that “her boys” should spend some quality time together in order to bond. This leaves Rory and the Doctor stuck together on an adventure of their own. The boys immediately decide that they would just rather use their time machine to jump ahead to the future to pick up Amy and pretend they grew closer together.
Slash, the snapping turtle mutated and designed by Stockgen to capture the quartet of heroes, has tracked down the boys. This issue begins with the ensuing confrontation.
Edgar Rice Burroughs' Tarzan has always interested me; however, I have not had the opportunity to get invested in the world's mythology. Now, to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the fabled ape-man, Tarzan: The Centennial Celebration, written by Scott Tracy Griffin, has been released by Titan Books. This stunning book chronicles the history of Tarzan and his creator. Whether you are an expert who cannot get enough or a novice like myself looking for a gateway into a new world, this book provides you with everything you are looking for.
The crew of the Enterprise has allied with the Borg?! Who could have mediated such a volatile negotiation? That genius is none other than our verbose Doctor.
Now that we have seen the aftermath of the ultimate “Who would win in a fight” scenario, this issue begins with the Borg pleading for Captain Picard's help before the Cybermen invade the Borg home world.
The finale of the first half of Doctor Who Series 7 has come, and so has the departure of companions Amy and Rory. “The Angels Take Manhattan” begins with the angels performing their musical, Manhattan Melodies, at college and follows their journey to bring it to Broadway . . . or maybe I have the wrong Melody.
During the episode "The Power of Three," the Doctor shows up at Amy and Rory's anniversary party and whisks them away in a whirlwind of adventures. We merely got glimpses of what transpired during this trip through a montage. This issue explores that time as it takes place during one of the stops.
