REVIEW… P-Brane: The Green Man

P-Brane: The Green Man Written by Chris X Ring; Directed by Jesse Heffring; art by Angus P Byers and Jesse Heffring; produced by Quietus Films.

Welcome Aboard the TARDIS, Matt!

I’ve bought into it.  I’m convinced.  I’ve been brainwashed.  I’ve drunk the kool-aid.  I’m actually getting excited about Matt Smith taking over the role of the Doctor.  Not that I’m anxious to rush David Tennant out of the role, after all he’s my favorite Doctor of all time (just beating out Peter Davison and Tom […]
