Welcome back to The Great 8s – our look at 8/10 rated indie comics you’ll find at your comic shop NOW! This week you’ll find I HATE FAIRYLAND #11 from Image, and DOCTOR WHO: THE TENTH DOCTOR YEAR THREE #3 from Titan! Let’s get started with…
I HATE FAIRYLAND #11 (Image) – Gert gets to meet her favorite hero…but who is Gerts biggest fan? Does she have a fan? Does she muffin fluffin care? Why am I starting to use “muffin fluffer” in my daily conversation? Forget all that and just grab I HATE FAIRYLAND! It’s rude, crude and politically incorrect…and laugh-out-loud hilarious! Skottie Young gives us the story and art, with colors by Jean-Francoise Beaulieu. 8/10
DOCTOR WHO: THE TENTH DOCTOR YEAR THREE #3 (Titan) – That Red Tardis from the last story arc hasn’t left for good…it just left with Cindy Wu trapped inside! The Doctor, Gabby and Noobis are on the trail…but as good as that is, it isn’t the best part of this issue. Much of the story is told as a fable to a child, and it is both beautifully written by Nick Abadzis and beautifully illustrated Giorgia Sposito (with colors by Arianna Florean). If you’re a fan of the Doctor, this is a great jumping on point for the comic series – don’t miss it! 8/10
