TODAY'S FEATURE - Blog #3206:

Today's post is guest blogged by my wife, Tina LoSasso, who attended her 10th San Diego Comic-Con International this year! 

Review: “Torchwood” Comic Expands Storylines from the Wild & Crazy BBC Sci-Fi Series

Michael and I had the pleasure of meeting several representatives from Titan Publishing at San Diego Comic-Con 2010. They gave us a review copy of Torchwood #1 (Sept 2010) for mention in our Blog. If you’re a fan of the show, you’re going to want to get yours, and you have four covers to choose from.

We discovered the “Torchwood” series on DVD this summer. In fact, when I finish writing this for Michael to post in the morning, we’re going to finish Season 3: Children of Earth. And to anyone else who’s seen it – yeah, I know – I can’t believe we were able to tear ourselves away from it! I can’t wait, so here we go – forgive the typos…

Torchwood #1 contains two separate stories. The first (The Selkie) is inclusive while the second (Broken) is part 1 of 5. The copy we read has a really cool San Diego Comic Con exclusive “sketch” cover with realistic representations of Jack, Gwen and Ianto among the rubble of the destroyed Hub. 

Fans of the series will appreciate the involvement of John Barrowman (Capt Jack Harkness) in the comic. Barrowman wrote a special foreword explaining how the comic grew out of his meeting artists Tommy Lee Edwards and Trevor Goring at San Diego Comic-Con 2008. ‘The Selkie’ story is written by Barrowman and his sister, Carole E. Barrowman.

The self-contained ‘Selkie’ reveals a little more of Jack’s mysterious history. OK – we still don’t know why he can’t die, but we do learn a little bit about what he did before Torchwood. We also see Jack on his own without his team – outside of Cardiff. It’s different and somewhat interesting.

‘Broken’ feels like an episode of the TV series. It has it all: the team, the bantering, the mystery, the Rift, - why you’ll even see a sinister character from seasons past.  I admit I loved everything about it, except the artwork style. I’m just not a fan of this style. But that won’t stop me from getting my hands on the next issue as soon as it’s out!

On a comic book grading scale of 10, I give Torchwood #1: 9.2 (Near Mint Minus)

Michael still needs to read it, but once he does, look for Torchwood #1 – and a bunch of other cool sci-fi comics in our online store. That’s if he can part with it!

Time to finish watching Torchwood: Children of the Earth!
