Time again (the final time, in fact) for reviews from around the web, this time on Doctor Who #12.
I'll restate how I go about picking these; I usually go for known comic book journalism sites, and stay away from personal reader reviews -- many are complimentary, and I appreciate that. Many of you have your heads up your asses, and that's what makes me stay away (especially this time - a very unprofessionally snarky review from one website that probably only has staff relatives as fans).
One again ComixTreme.com gave Doctor Who #12 a 3.5 out of 5 review. They did have this to say;
...Blair Shedd has done some good work with some freaky sci-fi concepts and strong characterization on the Doctor and Martha, evoking the characters without aping them completely.

Again, somewhat heavy-duty comic book reporting site Major Spoilers weighed in with this review, giving us a 4 out of 5. They had tons of complimentary things to say, such as;
Blair Shedd’s art is interesting, but keeps us in a realm realistic enough that the face of David Tennant is always recognizable, and even gets the complexities of the old TARDIS console room right, a difficult proposition in and of itself.

And finally, over at ComicsBulletin.com, we've scored a 5 out of 5 rating again for this (my) final issue. Among other things, they say (and I'm grabbing the whole, wonderful quote);
Shedd's Doctor is an animated Tennant full of fury over the Advocate's schemes and bravado in his soft-soled steps. He threatens giant robot angels with his Sonic Screwdriver. He exhibits his expert piloting skills, with a grin on his pliable, cartoony face. At the drop of Shedd's dime, the Doctor becomes a vulnerable quiet soul who doesn't want anybody to die.

One final note, a fun article on CBR titled "Doctor Who: Adventures in Space, Time, & Comics," has interviews with a smattering of Doctor Who comic writers, artists, and art from myself and others. Click here for that.
Thanks to all those that purchased and read, thanks to those who reviewed (save for you asshats), and screw you to those who downloaded illegally and didn't pay. You're not helping anything.
And to everyone else, thanks!
