Today we’ll be looking at a rather recent Yuletide comic book – Doctor Who #12, Volume 2 published by IDW. Written by Tony Lee with art chores by Paul Grist, colors by Phil Elliot.


This is one of the rare comics in the Christmas Comics Cavalcade that I paid full price for upon its release!

Questions from readers: Best doc?

I stand by that first panel: Season 5 is the best season of NuWho overall, but Ten is the better version of The Doctor. I don’t know if that’s a controversial position or not.

More Who stuff tomorrow.

Chalkboard Drawings: The “Homecoming” edition

Posted in chalkboard drawings with tags , , on September 29, 2013 by Christopher Pearce

I draw a picture of myself on my classroom’s chalkboard everyday. I collect those pictures as camera phone photos and post them on Sundays. See the rest here.

This past week was Homecoming at my high school. We have a week-long build up to the Homecoming Game where every day is themed. Students and teachers have a lot of fun participating and I decided to get into the spirit with my chalkboard drawings.

chalkboard drawings: the “wibbly wobbly timer wimey” edition

Short week this week with Presidents’ Day. I thought I’d have a go at some of the various incarnations of Doctor Who; as a lot of y’all know, I’m a recent convert to the series through the NuWho series, but I’ve been slowly going back and getting into the older episodes.


Tom Baker’s Fourth Doctor being a particular favorite of mine and I’ve been trying to watch a lot of the highlights of his tenure. I’m planning on taking inThe Sontarian Experiment this weekend.

sketchbook: a buncha stuff

A bunch of stuff piled on one page.

Have you ever seen the original Fleischer Brothers Superman cartoons? I picked up a set of them on DVD for Christmas and the boys have been obsessed. They’re quite beautifully produced and I can see why they remain so popular (although their existing in the public domain doesn’t hurt anything). I love that squinty-eyed, he-man version of the character.

A doodle of the Eleventh Doctor… I colored a sketch of the Tenth Doctor sometime last year, so I thought I’d follow suit here.

So here’s my haul:

I got lazy and just typed stuff on these doodles. Here’s a snapshot of the rest of my loot:

I was really really lucky this year and if you’re jealous I totally understand. Here’s a video of those Doctor Who micro figures. It’s cute:

sketchbook: a couple of random scribbles

I was thinking about doing a big drawing of all the Nintendo characters I loved as a kid… but I only got this far.

An 11th Doctor head sketch. It’s been awhile, but I believe I may have been aping someone else’s drawing when I doodled this in the margins of my sketchbook. I wish I could remember!

odds and ends

Students and teachers alike are doing the countdown to Thanksgiving. As I’ve mentioned before, I’m a product of New York schools and NY has some nicely permissive policies when dealing with days off.

For example, I received most of the Jewish holidays off when I was growing up; Southwest Ohio provides no days off for these holidays. Despite our capital being named for the man, we also do not receive Columbus Day off. Most Ohio schools run from Labor Day to Thanksgiving without one day off for either teachers or students; Turkey Day holds special meaning to those of us who have had our nose to the grindstone for all those weeks.

Of course, we DO get out of school obscenely early- when most of my NYC teachers are sweating June out in classrooms, I’ve already been done with teaching for two weeks.


In other school news, Ohio voters defeated Senate Bill 5!

I had very little doubt the unpopular law would be shown the door, but I’ve learned you never can tell when it comes to Ohio. I do know that the county I lived in was one of the few in the state to unanimously vote YES on 5. It’s hard to handicap these things.

I would be more excited about this, except I am absolutely positive there are politicians ensconced somewhere in the state’s capital, scheming of a new way to take away my health insurance and dock my salary.


I didn’t share pictures of Halloween, did I? Oh well. They’re behind the cut, if you’re interested.

2011-2012 school year: suspenders are… cool?

This one’s been drawn for awhile, but I decided to sit on it until Halloween so I could share my costume with y’all. The old bald guy character appeared in this comic a few weeks ago.
