Hahahaha, I wish that would happen in the new DC comics

That was perfect. DC and Vertigo don’t mix well at all. (Yeah I know it’s el Doctor Quien, but same difference).

And for the record, Sausage Parties rule ; )

That was great. I will be using ‘technicolour yawn’ for the rest of my days.

The creators learned about silent panel´s effect and use it in every strip! Boring!!!!!!!!

Ha, cute. Love the dialogue in this one.

Just to goes to show you, too, how DOCTOR WHO can be super-intelligent and mature without being profane.

Inter-company cross-over that’ll never happen!

IDW vs. Vertigo/DCU/DC comics.

BBC would turn over in their grave! ;-)


Isn’t John Constantine queer? I’ve never really followed Hellblazer but I seem to remember him having sexual relationships with both men and women.

Julian, you’re a hateful bigot to use language like that. And to answer your question…. read the book to find out.

Actually, queer has been appropriated by that community because there are too many variations so the acronym was getting unwieldy. Which is easier to write? Queer or GLBTQ (Gay-Lesbian-Bisexual-Transgendered-Questioning)? And that doesn’t even include pansexual and genderqueer people who don’t accept the existence of binary gender roles.
And to answer the actual question, he’s probably a Kinsey 2 or 3. Some vague reference is made to the occasional man during his wild(er) youth but he’s only ever had romantic relationships with women.

I thought queer wasn’t a slur anymore?

Loved it.

Tom probably overreacted a bit, but I liked your pleasant retort, Dalarsco.

It is tiring seeing so many blasts all over the internet, when responses like yours are more enlightening and reasoned.

Another great posting for Comics Critics! I like that the creators continue to plow new territory rather than using the same cast and satirical targets.

Sure, I probably overreacted a bit. I just have a very low tolerance for slurs regarding any group of people. And while I’m sure some people have adopted that as an acceptable description of their orientation I can tell you with authority those I talk to haven’t whatsoever.

As for the strip, another great one! I look forward to these every week.

I only recognised the Doctor.

This is dumb and uninteresting. What is the point?


Excellent strip. Haven’t quite got the voice of the Doctor, but nailed John’s voice

Obligatory if-I-ran-the-zoo post:

This would be way funnier if it were written in Sindarin and had cameos by J. Wellington Wimpy, Doiby Dickles and Woozy Winks. Oh yeah, and ROM.

The strip was at least one panel too short. Where’s Amy & Rory? Left out for their own protection? Also missing the panel where the Doctor is telling everyone it’s time to run.

Kidding, of course. This was really excellent. It’s like the crossover I never knew to ask for. Slightly Ennis/Ellis-ish without making the Doctor look like a prissy fool or pulling any punches over JC’s character.

And that’s everything that was wrong with the first season of Torchwood.

I laughed.

lol always wondered what would happen if dc could do dr. who team ups and also who in the dc universe if that happen would wind up being too annoying to the doctor. turns out its constine.

Heh. Really good strip this time.
