"Oddly enough, despite having been a Doctor Who fan for about 45 years, I have never been as much into comics based on the show.  Jeff probably knows more about Who comics than I do."

"This cover features Arale Noimaki, probably the most successful creation of mediocre scientist Norimaki Senbei, who passes her off as his younger sister.  Akira Toriyama is the same person who created Dragon Ball."
