The four-part epic first-year finale continues! Earth is under attack from an ancient species who yoked suns and spanned galaxies before we'd even evolved opposable thumbs. Cities are tumbling under their assault, people are dying in droves, and only two people in the universe can save us. But first the Doctor and Clara must save themselves! Burning with fury forged in the heart of stars, armed with technology beyond human comprehension, composed of a fleet of unstoppable warships, the Hyperions have returned at last. Welcome to the Hyperion War. Welcome to the last days of Earth!

    Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor just keeps getting better, as despite the last issue feeling a bit of a slow burner, this latest installment has given us the exciting premise that we deserved. The creators also manage to give us plenty to be excited about, with the developments within this issue setting up what easily could become one of the best Doctor Who stories to feature in a comic book.

    Overall The Hyperion Empire is a good read. With Morrison at the helm it feels like a classic, good British sci-fi story and you can't help thinking that that's everything a Doctor Who comic should have. He brings a wealth of story telling experience to the table that gives the book a solid core to build on, and his knowledge of the characters is sure to please any fan of the show. If you love the new series, you'll love this story, in fact I'd go so far as to say it's a lot better than some of the episodes that have aired over the past two years. Read Full Review

    Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor #13 sets the stage for what's to come, but as a standalone issue, it's weak tea.

The idea is to build up the tragedy, but it just feels like wasted space. I'm sure that the next issue will pick up. Dr. Josh gives this a" Read Full Review
