Old Friends, by Jody Houser et al

Second frame of third part:

Another very successful installment in the series of Thirteenth Doctor comics by Houser and an all-woman team of artists. Here, the Tardis team meet up with none other than the Corsair, subject of a throwaway line about Time Lords changing gender in The Doctor's Wife, here a swaggering part-time criminal who does it for fun rather than out of malevolence. The Corsair is a great creation, a different take on the Doctor's irreverence for authority and tradition, and Houser has the two developing a lovely sparking relationship, convincingly giving the sense of two people who know each other well but maybe not always as well as they think. The core narrative is that the Doctor is accused of stealing a valuable object which in fact was stolen by the Corsair, and this lands them in all sorts of trouble. The rest of the Tardis crew don't get a lot of page time, but this is the Corsair's story, and it's a good one. You can get it here.

This was my top unread comic in English. Next on that pile is Wonder Woman: The Golden Age, by William Moulton Marston with art by Harry G. Peter.
