September Books 17) The Only Good Dalek, by Justin Richards and Mike Collins

This is the first Doctor Who graphic novel to be officially produced by the BBC, using the talents of Justin Richards who is currently the most prolific of Who authors, and Mike Collins who is the main artist of the comic strips in Doctor Who Magazine. It's a pretty good effort; the new-style iDaleks are brought together with some staples of Dalek history (petrified forest, Varga plants, Robomen, Ogrons) and there is an actual plot with twists and things, as well as some cute Eleven / Amy moments, skilfully illustrated by Collins. If the BBC planned this as the first of a new range of DW graphic novels, they are off to a good start.
