On the Day of the Dead, the mystery deepens in a brand-new brooklyn adventure for the tenth Doctor! All Gabriella Gonzalez wanted was to skip her shift at the Laundromat and hang out with her friends. It's Halloween, and Sunset Park is hosting its first-ever Day of the Dead festival! But her father wouldn't listen - again - and now Gabby is stuck with a store full of empty washing machines while the rest of the neighborhood goes wild. But this graveyard shift is living up to its name! Vortexes explode out of the machines, shadowy creatures stalk on the edge of sight, and Gabby finds herself pursued by unearthly forces. Finally, on the longest night of her life, Gabby is trapped in a powerless subway car - and the only thing standing between her and horrific death-by-monster is some skinny white guy in a suit - who's waving a blue flashlight around!

    Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor moves on swiftly, and though the overuse of jargon was unsettling, the issue as a whole was very exciting. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    When you review a book there's a tendency to read it because you're reviewing it. If you stop reviewing it then you also stop reading it and that says a lot about a story. You continued with it because you were reviewing it not because you felt the need to. With Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor, if I were to stop reviewing it I would continue reading it. It's a book I want to read more of and I enjoy continuing my attachment of the Tenth Doctor through reading this series. One thing is for sure, I'm enjoying this series more than I am the new season of the show. Read Full Review

    Doctor Who is rolling on strongly. The story is pretty interesting and the art is fantastic. This issue gets way too into the ideas of over-explaining jargon to the point where it's tough to get through. However, overall, this issue and series are building up to be a hit. I'd say give this issue a shot. Read Full Review

    A few hiccups keep #2 from being on level with #1, but it's still a fun issue Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Aug 27, 2014

    So, in short, we have: A likeable companion. A Doctor who looks, acts and speaks in a manner consistent with that which has come before. Good art, with alien-y aliens, monstery monsters, and Tennant-y Tennants. And the kind of cliffhanger that makes me want to come back next time and find out how The Doctor gets out of this one. Summing up, Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor #2 is an enjoyable read, and kicks off what I hope is a long and successful run with this creative team, because who doesn't love some pointy hair and sideburns now and then.

    Comic Book Therapy - Cody "The Thorverine" Ferrell Aug 27, 2014

    Doctor Who The Tenth Doctor #2 is a solid Doctor Who story that fans should find plenty of things to love within. There's something about it that feels slightly odd, but it may just be the newness of it all. The Doctor is back, and it will be exciting to see where Abadzis and company take us now that the threat is defined. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Jeremy Radick Aug 28, 2014

    I still very much enjoyed the issue, it's just a tad clunky in its handling of a lot of info. The ideas at the core are very good, and the series remains perfectly in sync with the era of the television show it's celebrating. If you're a fan of Tenth Doctor, this remains the best way to get your fix. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Richard Gray Aug 28, 2014

    The slower pace of the first issue gives way to a barrage of technobabble from the Time Lord, as he and his companion Gabby flee from fear monsters, as writer Nick Abadzis perfectly capturing actor David Tennant's way of delivering a wibbly wobbly line at rapid pace. Read Full Review
