    Sometimes the middle chapters of Doctor Who serials were much better than the beginning or ending chapters. All that running around through tunnels was a heck of a lot of fun, which I often didn't want to see end. I had a heck of a lot of fun with this middle chapter. I hope the ending is as good as the ending of "Dawn of the Daleks." Read Full Review

    No matter the period, Byrne demonstrates his research in detailed, historical backdrops, timely fashions and supporting cast members. I can't see what more you can want in a comic book. Next Men continues to fascinate, years later. Read Full Review

    The two main stories in the past offer some interesting outlooks for Nathan and Antonia to deal with depending on how long they're actually stuck back there. It seems like it could be considerable for Antonia with what we learn in the present time but things are less certain for Nathan. We do get a look at what happened to Jasmine as well, though her time with the Earl of Oxford is more a tease than anything else since it doesn't go into much detail. Next Men still maintains the style that Byrne used back in the day and I continue to love his approach to illustration and pacing, but the book is having an obviously hard time getting going considering the history behind it. While I can get into it well enough having read all of that years ago and it's all slowly coming back, I can't imagine this being an interesting read for someone completely new to the series. They definitely needed to spend a couple side-issues doing a full on recap prior to this. Read Full Review

    In the end it still isn't clear if all of this is real or if it takes place inside a dream world. But at this point, it hardly matters much. Next Men simply isn't worth scratching your head over. Read Full Review
