Doctor Who The Dave Gibbons Oversized Collection

This article (one of the very first written for this blog) has been enriched on the 20 April 2015.

Scripted by Pat Mills (135 pages), John Wagner, Steve Moore and Steve Parkhouse (see a picture below for full credits details). All material is ©BBC.

Published in October 2010 by IDW (ISBN: 978-1613770634, 372 pages, cover price $50), this oversized (9.2 x 13.3 inches, 23.5 cm x 33.8 cm) book presents all the Time Lords stories drawn by Dave Gibbons in the eighties.

The book, edited by Justin Eisinger and Alonzo Simon with a collection design by David Boswell, is printed on high quality thick mat paper, and displays the coloring from 2007 executed by Charlie Kirchoff (original publishing was in B&W). A picture below is for size comparison with issue #1 of the IDW comics reprint of 2007. Second and third of cover are plain white.

The book opens with an introduction by Dave Gibbons (one page + 3 pencils) but there are no other extra in this edition (but hey, it's really oversized so I am happy anyway). Here is also the full credits page.

This edition collects Doctor Who Weekly issues #1-16 & #19-45, as well as Doctor Who Monthly #46-57 & #60-69 (fourth and fifth Doctor adventures, up to issue #34 included for Pat Mills related material). Note that as far as I am aware, these original issues either feature pictures of the real actors or montage of the interior pages, hence there are no original covers displayed in this book.

this character kind of resembles Dave Gibbons
