Doctor Who: The Dave Gibbons Collection
Dave Gibbons: just saying the name can bring up a thousand memories for readers of Doctor Who Weekly who would excitedly flick through the pages of their favourite publication to indulge in another slice of the wonderful Doctor Who comic strip.
Gibbons helped to shape the Doctor’s comic adventures for years to come and is responsible for illustrating some of the most memorable stories across issues 1-69, missing only four in that period.
Now IDW have released an omnibus edition of his collected works, covering a total of sixteen epic and wonderful stories. Doctor Who: The Dave Gibbons Collection features stories by talented writers such as John Wagner, Pat Mills, Steve Moore and Steve Parkhouse.
Stories included in the collection are some of the greatest comic strip tales ever told including: The Iron Legion, City of the Damned, The Star Beast, The Dogs of Doom, Dragon’s Claw, The Collector, The Neutron Knights, The Tides of Time and Stars Fell on Stockbridge.
This is a book worth spending your hard earned cash on, with some engaging stories, great artwork and a lovely dose of nostalgia all rolled into one, plus there’s the added bonus that the stories have been lovingly colourised!
Doctor Who: The Dave Gibbons Collection is available on general release now but to really get yourself a bargain we recommend visiting Amazon where you can order a copy for £30.84.
