Prestigious music channel MTV has released their best Comics, Webcomics and graphic novel picks for 2010.
Among the best of the best are some titles that you may recognise (including Morning Glories by Nick Spencer and Joe Eisma from Image Comics, the Ectopairy web comic by Hans Rickheit and the odd non-fiction comic 120 days of Simon by Simon Gardenfors) but of course the reason that weâ€™re telling you this is because one of the category winners is Doctor Who!
BEST LICENSED SERIES: Doctor Who by Various
Sure, I’m a big fan of “Doctor Who,” but you can count me among the skeptics when IDW first announced its “Doctor Who” comic book series. However, writer Tony Lee proved himself time and time again over the course of 2010, and gave anyone who longed for more time with David Tennant’s iteration of The Doctor a wealth of wonderful stories. Along with regular artist Matthew Dow Smith and several other talented illustrators, Lee managed to craft a series of adventures that not only played in the same world as the “Doctor Who” television series but made notable additions to it, too. The “Doctor Who 2010 Annual” and Lee’s heartbreaking farewell to The Tenth Doctor in issue #16 is not to be missed, and I know I’m not alone in eagerly anticipating his take on Matt Smith’s version of The Doctor.
So there you have it, even in other media such as comics, Doctor Who is still coming up trumps! For the full list of winners, visit splashpage.mtv.com
