Amy decides that “her boys” should spend some quality time together in order to bond. This leaves Rory and the Doctor stuck together on an adventure of their own. The boys immediately decide that they would just rather use their time machine to jump ahead to the future to pick up Amy and pretend they grew closer together.
Slash, the snapping turtle mutated and designed by Stockgen to capture the quartet of heroes, has tracked down the boys. This issue begins with the ensuing confrontation.
Edgar Rice Burroughs' Tarzan has always interested me; however, I have not had the opportunity to get invested in the world's mythology. Now, to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the fabled ape-man, Tarzan: The Centennial Celebration, written by Scott Tracy Griffin, has been released by Titan Books. This stunning book chronicles the history of Tarzan and his creator. Whether you are an expert who cannot get enough or a novice like myself looking for a gateway into a new world, this book provides you with everything you are looking for.
The crew of the Enterprise has allied with the Borg?! Who could have mediated such a volatile negotiation? That genius is none other than our verbose Doctor.
Now that we have seen the aftermath of the ultimate “Who would win in a fight” scenario, this issue begins with the Borg pleading for Captain Picard's help before the Cybermen invade the Borg home world.
The finale of the first half of Doctor Who Series 7 has come, and so has the departure of companions Amy and Rory. “The Angels Take Manhattan” begins with the angels performing their musical, Manhattan Melodies, at college and follows their journey to bring it to Broadway . . . or maybe I have the wrong Melody.
During the episode "The Power of Three," the Doctor shows up at Amy and Rory's anniversary party and whisks them away in a whirlwind of adventures. We merely got glimpses of what transpired during this trip through a montage. This issue explores that time as it takes place during one of the stops.

Previously in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Casey Jones came to the turtles after being beaten up during his father's latest intoxicated stint of violence. True to his aggressive idiom, Raphael sets out to find Casey's dad in order to prevent him from doing this again.
This may come as a surprise to you, dear reader, but I happen to be a huge Doctor Who fan. On the other hand, I have not been the biggest Star Trek fan. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy most of the movies and what episodes I have seen, but I have never been devoted enough to consider myself a Trekkie or Trekker. But, when I heard that IDW was doing a crossover between the two I said, “Make it so.”
I thought that “The Power of Three” was the best episode so far in this series of Doctor Who. It maintained that great balance of silly and terrifying that the show is known for. There was also a great mystery, which kept the tension going throughout the entire episode. It was also refreshing to finally have an episode of this series set in present day.
As with the previous two episodes, I enjoyed “A Town Called Mercy”; however, it felt too isolated from everything else and added to the detachment that this series is suffering from.
