Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor #10 - A Review

Fresh from their latest adventure, The Doctor and Gabby Gonzales have returned to her home for a quick check-in with her friends and family. But peaceful homecomings never seem to be possible when The Doctor makes a house call and this trip is no exception. Mysterious bands of noise pollution seem to be traveling around New York City and what they signify could pose a threat to the entire Earth!

This issue brings us a new artist - Eleonora Carlini - who proves to be another fine creator in the line of great artists this book has possessed. Carlini's style is more streamlined than what we've seen in the past, but this proves to be a benefit given how very busy some panels become due to the sentient noise that is assailing New York City in the form of large letters. The inks are light, giving this book a brilliance that is enhanced by the colors of Hi-Fi.

Good introductory one-shot stories seem to be an increasingly rare thing in modern comics.  Too many comics are written as part of a larger epic and it's rare to have a single issue of a monthly series that can be handed to a potential new reader as a complete, one-shot tale that tells you everything you need to know.  This issue is one such comic and Robbie Morrison is to be commended for having written it.

Bottom Line: If you haven't ever read a Doctor Who comic before, this is a good one to start with!
