I am reading Tony Lee & Pia Guerra's Doctor Who comic, "The Forgotten". This is a Ten & Martha story that works in appearances from all nine prior Doctors in little adventures of their own. It's a little bit like The Five Doctors, but the adventures are all in the past instead of interconnected.

I'm not getting the Buffy comics any more (bleah), but I might start following the Who comics regularly.
