DOCTOR WHO, originally uploaded by richstarkings.

A collection of seventh Doctor DOCTOR WHO stories I edited, and in some cases co-wrote under the name Richard Alan, and lettered under the pseudonym ZED, was published by Panini UK last month and became available at your LCBS earlier this month.

For the record, I co-wrote TIME AND TIDE, lettered by Tom Orzechowski (what's up with THAT?!) with SLEEZE BROTHERS co-creator John Carnell, and I co-plotted, uncredited, PLANET OF THE DEAD.

The last story I co-wrote for the Seventh Doctor, NEMESIS OF THE DALEKS, is being held over for the next volume, so that they can hang on to that snappy title, no doubt.

This fine tome features the first work (on PLANET OF THE DEAD) of my good friend Lee Sullivan, who is still drawing DOCTOR WHO strips (for BATTLES IN TIME) today. Check out his website here

Also included in the collection is an introduction by Yours Truly detailing how the strip was nearly dropped from DOCTOR WHO MAGAZINE altogether, and a series of interviews with the many creators featured in the book complied by John Freeman, who edited the strip -- and also designed and then edited the entire magazine! -- after my departure...
