Can You Judge A (Comic) Book By Its Cover?

Back in the day, I read mostly Disney comics. But did I pick up anything by osmosis?

Well, maybe

I sat out much of the last Doctor Who series, but may give it a whirl in August.

The official “Doctor Who” trailer is … promising | ***Dave Does the Blog
Sure, there’s plenty of razzle-dazzle, but the fundamental theme of the new Doctor — who am I, am I a good person, what kind of messes have I left behind me — sound like a great direction for the character.
