British Comic Shop Releases (4th March 2015) – Vomiting Projectiles and Doctor Who!

Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor #9

Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor #9. Cover by Brian Williamson


Here’s our weekly list of both British and US comics on sale this week in comic shops (Wednesday 4th March 2015). It complements our monthly lost of new graphic novel releases which you can find here for March 2015.

Titan Comics have not one but two Doctor Who titles on sale this week, and even their final Penguins of Madagascar has a Doctor Who connecton, as it’s written by Cavan Scott, also co-author of the marvellous The Official Doctor Who Miscellany.

2000AD features a cracking cover from Dylan Teague; and it’s good to see Chris Wildgoose and Luke Pearson delivering some great covers, too, along with Bryan Hitch and Doug Braithwaite. They’re all featured below.

I’ve also highlighted three new books on the comic form now available through comic shops as well as books shops and online stores, published by the University of Mississippi.

And, finally, as Doctor Who fans here, how could we not note the arrival of Doctor Who: Time Trips Anthology from BBC Books?Although, adly, despite a cracking title, we’re reliably informed the bizarrely titled Space Helmet for a Space Cow from Mad Norwegian Press is a  disappointment.

Comics & Language - Reimagining Critical Discourse On Form


Comics & Language – Reimagining Critical Discourse On Form (Soft Cover)
Writer: Hannah Miodrag

It has become an axiom in comic studies that “comics is a language, not a genre.” But what exactly does that mean, and how is discourse on the form both aided and hindered by thinking of it in linguistic terms? In Comics and Language, Hannah Miodrag challenges many of the key assumptions about the “grammar” and formal characteristics of comics and offers a more nuanced, theoretical framework that she argues will better serve the field by providing a consistent means for communicating critical theory in the scholarship. She exposes the problems embedded in the ways critics have used ideas of language, literature, structuralism, and semiotics, and sets out a new and more theoretically sound way of understanding how comics communicate.

Comics & Narration


Comics & Narration (Soft Cover)
Writer: Thierry Gronesteen

In Thierry Groensteen’s The System of Comics, the comics theorist set out to investigate how the medium functions, introducing the principle of iconic solidarity, and showing the systems that underlie the articulation between panels at three levels: page layout, linear sequence, and nonsequential links woven through the comic book as a whole. He now develops that analysis further, using examples from a very wide range of comics, including the work of American artists such as Chris Ware and Robert Crumb. He tests out his theoretical framework by bringing it up against cases that challenge it, such as abstract comics, digital comics, and shoujo manga.

Space Helmet For A Cow Mad True Story Of Doctor WhoSpace Helmet For A Cow Mad True Story Of Doctor Who (Soft Cover, Mad Norwegian Press)
Writer: Paul Kirkley
In Space Helmet for a Cow, Paul Kirkley (SFX) provides a sweeping, wry and warm look at the behind-the-scenes story of Doctor Who, not just the greatest TV show ever made, but frequently the most insane TV show ever made. Which other program, for example, would attempt to sink Atlantis, wage inter-planetary war and crash Concorde, all in BBC Television Centre, on a budget that would barely cover a sitcom?
