SFTT ORIGINS: The Professor by Girl-on-the-Moon SFTT ORIGINS: The Professor by Girl-on-the-Moon
THIS IS NOT A TRICK. God I hate April Fools...
Anyway, in case you wondering how he got out of the Time War.
That is how.

Edit: A few tweaks.

I had an unimaginable amount of fun on this one. I'm experimenting with actual comic formats and getting away from the Sunday funnies 3-square-panels thing.

Also, Mark Bonnar is unreasonably attractive and a very good actor. Look him up if you haven't already.

I do no justice to his Scottish accent. Sorry Scottish people. I may stop trying to type it phonetically after this. I think I'm failing miserably and you all know he's Scottish by now.
EDIT: No more phonetic "Scottish" accent. MY APOLOGIES TO SCOTS EVERYWHERE.

Oh, but that has nothing to do with him being in Scotland. Sorry if that's confusing. It just sort of happened like that.

I'm very tired now. Hopefully this will hold you over until I'm all finished finals.

And yes Classic fans, I threw Drax in there. BOO YAH.
SUPER EDIT: Drax is now 'played' by the wonderful Lee Pace as I had originally intended! And my version of Drax does indeed have an American accent. Why not have American Time Lords? Anyway, a character that resembles Lee Pace. For your enjoyment.

Oh and if there are any details of my Time War that don't match up with whatever the f*ck RTD wrote, I don't really give much of a shit. lol

Rest of the comic YONDER:

Oh I love it well done you have unbelievable talent, now I've finished gushing lets critic the hell out of this thing.

I love the explanation of how the professor got stuck on earth it works I mean it makes sense and explains why he can’t just wiz back home in his TARDIS but is stuck instead making tea with little mash-mellows, in a dreary cabin somewhere in Scotland.

My only problem with this explanation, and honestly I only noticed this just now (too busy laughing to notice inconsistencies whilst reading) but didn't the doctor say that if an angel got inside the TARDIS it would be bad I mean really bad, like sun exploding sort of bad. But honestly I’m happy to overlook that because this makes a great story and a great laugh and honestly I ignored all the inconstancies in plot that RTD dreamed up before.

I absolutely adore the last three panels good use of minimal language, and the third panel in, " this would be a lot easier with two friggin eyes," because honestly haven't we all screamed at the television when the angels appear " WINK GOD DAM YOU WINK DONT BLINK!!!" I know I have.

Once again well done and as always I look forward to seeing more of your work.
Hope

The first five panels cutting between Drax & the Angel are very well done! The colours definitely work very well with the art and there is clear planning, thought and dedication shown due to the way shadows are coloured and on't show any indiscrepancies. The split panel featuring the Angel's head being blown apart (albeit temporarily) and the Professor reveal is very well executed through the split panel.

The design of the TARDIS interior is very nicely done, particularly so in my opinion as I'm a fan of the Classic interior. The roundels on the wall are well done and the colour scheme is drab but effective. As the Professor is looking towards the Time Rotor, the colours are once again gorgeously done and work very well with your art.

Finally, the panels with the Angels and the Scottish mountains show such a great contrast but work very well in their own ways. I particularly love the grimness of the Scottish hills in contrast with the oranges of Gallifrey.

Also, this is the first time I've seen the Professor and not instantly reconciled him with Simm's Master, so I'm not sure what you changed but it did the trick, for me at least.

Yeaaaaaaaaahhh I dunno how well it's going but it's fun anyway. I know a lot of it isn't anywhere near correct, but if I typed everything normally NO ONE would read the part of the artist's comments where I would say "oh and hey he's got a Scottish accent just by the way". SO IT'S BE IGNORED, OR I GET IT KINDA WRONG BUT EVERYONE KNOWS HE HAS AN ACCENT. THESE ARE THE CHOICES I HAVE TO MAKE. 
AND SO I DID.
I MADE THE CHOICE.
AND I'M STICKIN' WITH IT.
AIN'T GONNA TAKE NO HATE YO.
GONNA STRUT IT.
SHA-ZOW.
CHOICE MAKER.

if its words that are only in scottish use/that scots spell differently/is recognised dialect (ie. 'cannae') then that's fine. but every other word is going a bit overboard.
besides no one ever writes american accents phonetically/ott even when characters are american - (because i guess an american accent is considered 'default' if the writer's american)  i have to say it doesn't affect my enjoyment at al of reading american comic books that i don't hear then all speaking american in my head - but it does really grate on me when say, john constantine talks in a phonetic affected cockney accent (and here in SFTT the 'scottish accent') because it becomes much less about building character than creating a caricature, and inhibits the storytelling rather than enables it

I really enjoy the phonetic spellings! Maybe I'm the only one but it really helps create the accent in my head. Not to mention it's funny to read. I'll like it however you end up doing his speech but I'll certainly miss the phonetic if you ditch it :3

Funny: I was reading this at around midnight a week ago and I remember scrolling down the page on my ipod. I came to the part where the angel was just suddenly BAM! there! So . . . yeah. I flinched and slowly looked up away from my ipod . . .

I swear, there was something there staring at me.

XD

I had a good laugh. ;)

wait... I thought the timelords were weeping angels, and when everyhting exploded...well, it's like the remains from what never existed in one episode from 11... so the weeping angels were remains and they were hungry for energy, and the exposure to the time vortex gave them...oh never mind, I'll just go make some tea.

There's a sub-folder of the 'The Comic' folder at over at the SFTT group. There are a couple in there if you missed them. Beginning to think I shouldn't have a subfolder. No one sees it.

Don't take out the phonetic spelling! It's utterly hilarious and I love that some things I have to read out loud to get; it's part of the fun, and adds to the implied heaviness of the accent.

Angels can send you to other planets as well as other times? That's a cool thought. (Or had they landed on Earth already?)
