COMICS WORTH READING -- What an odd but effective mash-up. Doctor Who: Tales of Terror is a collection of twelve scary stories, each featuring one of the twelve Doctors. This would make an excellent Halloween gift for your favorite Whovian. I wouldn't have thought to put the two together, but then I remembered that Doctor Who has lots of monsters in it, and particularly the fourth Doctor specialized in horror tales. This was put out by BBC Children's Books, so nothing in it is *too* scary. (It's aimed for ages 9-12.) The stories, two each by Jacqueline Rayner, Mike Tucker, Paul Magrs, Richard Dungworth, Scott Handcock, and Craig Donaghy, each have an illustration by Rohan Eason. There are monsters we know, including a Dalek, and those we don't, such as a walking squid with illusion powers. Overall, it's a substantial, nicely solid collection.
