After Life

On Sale: July 23

Review by Alex Romeo

Al Ewing and Rob Williams’ After Life, featuring a solitary Eleventh Doctor, really captures the spirit of Matt Smith’s era.  The comic informs us that "The Doctor is travelling the cosmos alone, checking for anomalies in Reality 2.0," (this being the universe after The Big Bang) so I’m looking forward to seeing how that is explored in future issues.

After a dark, Dickensian-style opening gives way to a rip-roaring adventure through the very heart of London, new companion Alice gets a nose around the TARDIS – which is behaving even more erratically than usual.

We also get a glimpse of a rarely seen room in The Doctor's ship, and there’s a lovely black-and-white-to-technicolor moment and a real heart-stopping image that made me desperate to read the second issue (spoilers!). 

Inside you'll also find: Pond Life, a sitcomish short (one page) featuring Amy, Rory, River and The Doctor; and a highly amusing photo~strip featuring the Titan vinyl figures of The Silence and Matt Smith. Very enjoyable!

Thanks to Titan Comics
