The Doctor's questioning whether he's a good man, but also the validity of his battle against evil. It's somewhat grim stuff — until this week's Robin Hood episode, when it turns swashbuckling and hilarious. » 9/06/14 7:00pm 9/06/14 7:00pm

You could do a decent job of it with, at this point, long-winded exposition. What Bendis does so well is show, rather than tell. Buckle up, dear reader.… » 6/12/14 11:33am 6/12/14 11:33am
