Doctor Who #11 from IDW Publishing is out May 26th 2010, in US and Canadian comic book shops everywhere (check ahead for availability - I can't guarantee who carries what).
Here's a teaser of sorts of bits of issue #11. These panels are grabbed from all over the comic in no particular order. Some aren't even full panels but details of such.
If you pick up the issue, let me know what you think!

Doctor Who #11 - IDW Publishing
Written by Tony Lee, art by Blair Shedd, colors by Charlie Kirchoff, cover by Paul Grist.
“Don't Step On The Grass” Part 3 (of 4): The Clockwork Angels of Enochai have won. The sentient trees rule the parks of London. UNIT is beaten, and the Doctor is believed dead. There is only one last hope for mankind—and her name is the Advocate. Wait, what? But she’s a villain... isn’t she?
Like with #10, I did not draw a cover for this issue, so there's no need to search around for that specific cover. Just grab the one they have in your local comic shop.

UPDATE: Slightly different coloring, based on feedback from Dark Horse editor Scott Allie. Also - I did receive a reply from Ms. Day (see below). Thanks Felicia! Red is on SyFy, October 30th!
I'm being a total fanboy and geek here.
I wanted to get this image in front of Ms. Day before I posted it, but while she has read and responded to my Tweets before, she has near 2 million followers, so I'm sure she gets a lot of messages (and she's currently quite busy with the filming of Season 4 of The Guild).
She'll be in a SyFy Channel movie next year called "Red," a take on Little Red Riding Hood and werewolves (more info here).
I hope to hear Felicia Day's opinion on the piece, but until then, y'all can enjoy.
It's that time again: time for Granite State ComiCon (GrantieCon) Manchester, NH!
Deets are here - CLICK FOR TIME, ADMISSION, and LOCATION!
I'll be appearing in Artist Alley. Couldn't tell you exactly where, as they decide that on the day, but it should be pretty easy to find me. Just look for the 6' standee banner behind me that looks like this;
I'll have copies of Doctor Who #9 (mostly my B cover), Doctor Who #10, Afterburn #4 (featuring a pinup by me), and a few prints and original pieces of art on hand. I'll do some sketches (marker grayscale bust/head shots only for time's sake) for about $5.
I planned to have a sketchbook as well, but that all fell through at the last minute.
However, available at the con will be the image below;
This 11"x17" image of the Eleventh Doctor and companion Amy Pond (one of my first attempts at either character) is exclusive to GraniteCon. I was not paid for it. There will only be 20 available (they'll be hand-numbered), and I will sign them free-of-charge if they're brought to me (I might not sell them from my table). Here's the best part: 100% of the proceeds from the sale of the print go to the Make A Wish Foundation.
So I hope you stop by my table to pick up some comics, and defnitely pick up a print (while they last!) - it's a very worthy cause.
See you there!

Hey peeps. Another round of reviews from around the web (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).
So, without further a-doodoo;
Last time, ComixTreme.com gave Doctor Who #9 a 4 out of 5 review. This time, the book slips slightly to 3.5/5, but they still had this to say about me;
...I like Blair Shedd's artwork quite a bit, fortunately. The designs for the aliens are really good...
The link to the review can be found here - CLICK (Scroll down slightly when you land.)
Big comic journalism site ComicBookResources.com gave the book a 3/5, and had this to say;
With Shedd's linework and the coloring of Charlie Kirchoff, this issue, this arc, has an animation-cel kind of look... it's still not half-bad looking.
It may be damning with faint praise, but it's still a good review all in all. It can be found here - CLICK
Finally, we have the people over at ComicsBulletin.com with another 4/5 review, and some more ego inflating comments;
...[the characters] generate tremendous energy that Shedd and [colorist Charlie] Kirchoff then replicate through their illustrations.
The review can be found here - CLICK
And that's it for this round of Who Reviews. Like the last, I was really proud of this issue, but I have to admit, the best is yet to come.
