Re: IDW Publishing's License Concludes

IDW's final comic, "The Girl Who Loved Doctor Who," is out in shops on Tuesday.

I read it this week. (I received a copy at work.) It's good. It's a nice note on which to end the IDW era.

It does all the things you'd expect to happen with this premise of the Doctor landing in our world (not really a secret there; Cornell said as much in a Radio Free Skaro interview a few months ago), but it's actually something more. It's a Doctor Who story about stories, fandom, and what they mean to people. In that regard, it's very much like some of Neil Gaiman's work ("One Life, Furnished with Early Moorcock" and "The Problem of Susan" both come quickly to mind).

"A Valentine to the fans" is how my coworker described it after he'd read it.

Now there's a term that generally generates a negative response is some fandoms.

That did occur to me. But it's nothing at all like "There Are the Voyages."
