I stumbled across the graphic novels for the thirteenth Doctor by accident, but it turned out to be a very happy accident indeed. The writer, Jody Houser, has a real knack for bringing the characters to life - to the point that I could clearly hear the Doctors voice in my head, and the voices of her companions. The artists and colourists have also done an amazing job of bringing the characters to life on the page, particularly the facial expressions of the Doctor (her beaming smile in particular).
The true test for a graphic novel tie in is that you can picture it as clearly on the page as you can on the screen, and there were no jarring anomalies or weirdness to kick you out of the story. I have been rereading a book series working my way towards the most recent book in the series, and while I have other things to read nothing has distracted me - except for these Doctor Who graphic novels! Fantastic find, and can't wait to see more of them (hopefully many more) from this amazing writer/artists/colourists combination.
