Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor: Year Three #8 - An Advanced Review/Preview

Left in a London safe-house while The Doctor went off to investigate a vortex anomaly unlike anything he'd encountered before, Gabby Gonzales and Cindy Wu have both found a welcome confidant in Sarah Jane Smith. Originally come to investigate an energy spike apparently caused by Gabby's newfound powers, Sara Jane has proven all too eager and able to show the two young women around London and offer her advice on how to cope with life, the universe and everything. Yet could the girl's recent problems somehow be tied to the mystery The Doctor has rushed into?

This latest issue of The Tenth Doctor's adventures is a must-read for all fans of Sarah Jane Smith. Nick Abadzis has perfectly captured the character's voice and her relationship with The Doctor's latest companions is so instantly rich and real that one can hardly believe they met for the first time last month! The rest of the story is entertaining, though this book is more focused on relationship drama than cosmic crises.

The artwork proves just engaging. Giorgia Sposito proves equally capable of capturing the likenesses of the actors from the show as she is at depicting the exotic allure of outer space. And Arianna Florean's colors provide the perfect finish to every panel.

The Final Analysis: 10 out of 10! A must read for all fans of The Tenth Doctor and Sarah Jane Smith.

Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor: Year Three #8 will be released on August 16, 2017.
