I’m a recent convert to the Whovian Universe. For years I disregarded it as a viable source of entertainment. Not that I disliked it for any particular reason, I guess I just never gave it a chance. But now, having watched several episodes of different incarnations of the show, I can fully appreciate the fun factor you can find in the Time Lord’s stories.

The comic, created by John Wagner, Pat Mills, and Carlos Ezquerra, has been featured in the UK’s weekly comic book publication 2000 AD since its debut in 1977. It takes place in a futuristic world where judges are basically super-cops who apprehend, pass judgment upon, and even execute those that they find guilty.
