Abadzis, Nick (text) & Elena Casagrande & Arianna Florean (illus.). Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor. Vol. 1: Revolutions of Terror. Titan. 2015. 128p. ISBN 9781782761730. $19.99. GRAPHIC NOVELS

The time-traveling, space-wandering, and identity-shifting hero called the Doctor has starred in many original prose, audio, and comics adventures beyond his much-loved BBC TV series. This book, one of the first following Titan's takeover of the U.S. Doctor Who comics license from IDW,

Martha Cornog is a longtime reviewer for LJ and, with Timothy Perper, edited Graphic Novels Beyond the Basics: Insights and Issues for Libraries (Libraries Unlimited, 2009). Steve Raiteri is Audio-visual Librarian at the Greene County Public Library in Xenia, OH, where he started the graphic novel collection in 1996 introduces a new companion for the Doctor: Mexican American, college-age Gabriella Gonzalez, a budding artist who feels trapped by her father's insistence that she work for the family business. She's thrown into peril and must aid the Doctor after her family's laundromat becomes a portal to Earth for telepathic aliens that feed on (and create) fear. In the second tale, a charmer with a creepy center, the Doctor and Gabriella visit a great artist who's become mysteriously reclusive. Abadzis (an Eisner Award winner for Laika) exhibits fine ideas and a gift for technojargon, works in many references to previous Doctor Who stories, and absolutely nails both the show's style and tone and the Tenth Doctor's personality: fast-talking and jokey but tough-minded and haunted, with a desire to share the wonders of the universe. VERDICT A winner that fans will embrace.—S.R.
