    Defiantly like something I wasn't expecting the story to be, I thought it be a General Monster of the Week which started like that but went into a different direction I like it and how the Doctor is Half the reason H3 exist

    4.5/5 With Jodie Whittaker's second season as the 13th Doctor delayed until 2020, fans of Doctor Who are left to turn to other mediums to get their fix of new Doctor Who stories. Thankfully, Titan Comics continues to put out new 13th Doctor comics each and every month. And they're really good, too, with each arc comprising a single storyline that feels like a complete episode of the series!

Thankfully, Titan Comics continues to put out new 13th Doctor comics each and every month. And they're really good, too, with each arc comprising a single storyline that feels like a complete episode of the series! Much like the previous volume, this volume of the 13th Doctor comic tells an all-new story with the 13th Doctor and her new friends. And also like that first volume, this storyline is a really good one. I really like it when comics that are based on TV shows do something unique that the TV show can't do (usually for budgetary reasons) and that's exactly what this volume of the 13th Doctor comic did. The story takes place in multiple different time periods and multiple different locations, each issue featuring wholly different characters, all tied together by an overarching "villain" and an overarching mystery. Each issue isn't particularly long, so were the four to be adapted word-for-word, it would probably end up being about the length of an average episode of Doctor Who. But it'd be a really, really good episode. The mystery is an interesting one and it's explored and solved in a very interesting manner. I like it when shows and comics use modern day technology and pop culture as a way of creating mystery and the use of a podcast as the central mystery of this storyline works out really, really well. If anything, I'd have liked to have seen the podcast play an even bigger role in the story. But, as it is, it was a lot of fun. Jody Houser continues to expertly capture the voices of all of the characters. With every word she writes, you immediately hear those words in the voices of whichever character says them. She writes the 13th Doctor with all of the personality quirks unique to that Doctor - instead of just writing the character as a generic "Doctor" as many do during the first season or two of any new Doctor's era. She also captures the voices of Yaz, Graham, and Ryan perfectly, imbuing them with all the nuances of their relationships that are found within the TV series and exploring those nuances in interesting ways. Through the usage of the podcast in this storyline, we get the chance to see something that's bonded all three of our human characters together and it's nice to see them all so easily relate to something they like. Houser, of course, doesn't just perfectly capture the essence of the characters from the TV series, but she also creates unique and enjoyable new ones - including having some characters she introduced in the previous volume return in this one! But I won't say anything more about that, except that I hope they continue to be recurring characters in the 13th Doctor's comics. The illustrations throughout this book continue to be some of the most beautiful artwork I've seen in any comic in ages. This time, Rachael Stott is joined by Roberta Ingranata (who takes over illustrations for the last three issues int his volume). Like Houser, Stott and Ingranata perfectly capture the essences of these characters that we know and love from the TV series. They bring such emotion and wonderful facial expressions to these characters, so much that they truly feel alive. They do great work in action scenes, ensuring that each page has a certain flow to it and that each panel drives the readers into the next one, creating tension through the way any given page is laid out and through what is actually shown in any given panel. In terms of new aliens and new environments, Stott and Ingranata are given a whole lot to play with as they are asked to illustrate three different time periods/locations - a feat which they do with perfect ease. Each location has a distinct look - and even a distinct color palette, though that's down to the work of the colorist, Enrica Eren Angiolini. Stott and Ingranata are also asked to design another entirely new alien for the Doctor to face off against and their designs for this volume are a perfect blend of relatable and frightening. It's a design that really could only work within the pages of a comic and I love it. Stott's (and now Ingranata's) illustrations continue to be such a shining aspect of these 13th Doctor comics and I hope they both continue on the title for a nice, long time. All in all, this second volume of the ongoing 13th Doctor comic series is another great entry. Featuring an interesting, well-written mystery; some compelling old and new characters; and a whole lot of really incredible artwork, this comic is a must-read for fans of Doctor Who. It provides a really nice fix of new 13th Doctor stories while we all await Jodie Whittaker's second season as the Doctor. This volume features a wholly original story that probably could never have worked as an actual episode of Doctor Who, a fact which only makes the story that much more interesting. Read this graphic novel for the story, read it for the amazing artwork, or read it for a fix of new Doctor Who. But, regardless, just read it.

The TARDIS lands in Europe in the 1500s, during the Guelder Wars, only for Yaz, Ryan, and Graham to be the ones explaining the time period instead of the Doctor. The Doctor wonders how they know so much about a rather obscure area of history, only for Ryan, Yaz, and Graham to explain they learned about it from a podcast called "Hidden Human History" or H3. According to the companions, "everyone" is listening to it. Team TARDIS runs into Magda who is running away from war and "monsters". The Doct The TARDIS lands in Europe in the 1500s, during the Guelder Wars, only for Yaz, Ryan, and Graham to be the ones explaining the time period instead of the Doctor. The Doctor wonders how they know so much about a rather obscure area of history, only for Ryan, Yaz, and Graham to explain they learned about it from a podcast called "Hidden Human History" or H3. According to the companions, "everyone" is listening to it. Team TARDIS runs into Magda who is running away from war and "monsters". The Doctor and her companions discover the monsters are Stilean Flesh Eaters, an alien race that subsists on fresh blood. The Doctor remarks they were once carrion-eaters but they grew to prefer fresh blood instead. They also aren't evil, just dangerous. In many ways, the Stileans are implied to be no worse than humans who eat meat. The Doctor finds these aliens and one bites her, although the Doctor isn't hurt. The aliens chase the Doctor to the middle of the local village and the TARDIS Team is surrounded. But then alarm bells go off, rung by Magda. The Stileans leave. The Doctor and her companions leave the 1500s and arrive in North Carolina in 1711 during Cary's Rebellion - the subject of another episode of Hidden Human History. The Doctor and her team run into Schultz and Perkins who are now and have been for ten years agents of the Time Agency. Once again, the Stileans, who look closer to humans than they did in the 1500s - and somewhat owl-like are on the loose, taking advantage of the small war to find fresh blood and carrion. The Doctor tries to have a discussion with one of the Stileans, the one who bit her before, but their conversation is interrupted by the Time Agency agents. Still, Team TARDIS finds that a diet of human blood is altering the Stileans and making them more human-looking. The Doctor theorizes that one day they will be able to pass among humans. Although the Time Agency agents suggest that the Doctor go to The Battle of Ridgeway, they find themselves instead at the funeral of William the Brave, then they travel to contemporary times to track down the woman behind Hidden Human History. Team TARDIS tracks down Bethany Brunwine, podcaster, and meets her London flat. They enjoy tea and biscuits with the woman, who, yes, is the Stilean who bit the Doctor all those years ago. She was struck by something the Doctor said - history records names, facts, and dates but often ignores the stories of normal every day people who live through those times. Hidden Human History aims to bring the lives of normal people to, well, to life, as people whom contemporary people can emphasize with and understand. The Stilean has lived a very long life but will die soon. H3 is her way of giving back. I enjoyed this volume of the Thirteenth Doctor by Titan Comics. It's a fun, light adventure. and it's a refreshing change to have a "monster" who is no more monstrous than the average carnivore. Also, one of the Stileans is inspired by the Doctor to not only "fit in" to Earth society but to teach humans about what they have missed in history, and to bring to life the stories of normal people. This is a light and enjoyable volume and I recommend it.

    love me a book that leaves a huge smile on my face. Although i predicted the end, i was very proud of myself, because the doctor would be proud of me, as she was of the gang when they were leading. Jodie would be amazing if given the right stories, and i can't wait for the next season in 2020

    I love wibbly wobbly timey whimey stuff! I really like Jody Houser's writing style. I enjoyed the plot of this one more than vol. 1, but both volumes ended short for great cover art, but still short.
