"Doctor Who: Retirement?!" by L.J. Scott and Robb "studio robb" Carnes

I've spent the last five or six years retouching manga, both as a professional and non-professional. what few people know, though, was that i've drawn comics, as well...albiet years ago. specifically between the years of 1988 and 1992, i was drawing a comic for a "Doctor Who" fanzine called "The Doctor Who Information Society", or DWIS.

but it wasn't just any comic: i had the tremendous fortune of drawing a comic written by L. J. Scott, who's claim to fame was being the person who wrote the story upon which the "Star Trek: The Next Generation" episode "Quality of Life" (production n:235, broadcast Nov. 16, 1992) was based on.Working with Ms. Scott on this 15-part story was quite an honor (and a lot of fun!)

and now, for the first time, our comic, "Doctor Who: Retirement?" is being made available to the general public thanks to the magic of the World Wide Web.

i might as well start with the usual self-depricating comments...my drawing style is certainly not what comic afficionados would term as "professional". true, i did get "better" (relative term, that) as time went on, but the early stories were very derivative of "Love and Rockets" co-creator, Jaime Hernandez. basically what i'm saying is: don't expect to be "wowed" by the artwork.

But L. J. Scott's story is excellent, especially if you're a fan of "Doctor Who".
