    Writer Jody Houser has managed to offer up an intriguing Christmas mystery here and leaves us with a fantastic cliffhanger and a few questions. One of which being, 'is Santa really a bad guy?' Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Jay Hill Nov 13, 2019

    Any fan of Doctor Who should pick up this comic. It is filled with everything to love about the show, with the benefits afforded to the great medium of comic books. The sci-fi story brings that classic Who mystery with the humor intact too. The art not only captures the likenesses of the characters but is outstanding in all aspects. I couldn't get enough of this comic and reached the cliffhanger more than ready for the next installment. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Tony Dillard Dec 13, 2019

    Issues with the artwork aside, I was pleased. Despite the BBC and Chris Chibnall being Scrooges by not giving us an official 2019 holiday TV episode, Titan Comics made off like Santa by gifting us with this two-parter. Even a Doctor Who special with flaws is better than no Doctor Who at all! Read Full Review
