If There Was A Doctor Who Anime Made in 1989, This Is What It Would Have Looked Like

It Goes Ding When There's Stuff


This twelve and a half minute long cartoon was made by Paul Johnson working completely alone, so cut it some slack on the visual quality and just enjoy its revival of vintage anime tropes; from the bare midriff or schoolgirl skirt of every female character and the nearly incomprehensible half symbolic plot to the token black military character. Yes, that’s the third Doctor, Daleks, Cybermen (who are a surprisingly anime ready concept), the Brigadier, Sutekh the Destroyer, and a few Time Masters.

Susana Polo thought she'd get her Creative Writing degree from Oberlin, work a crap job, and fake it until she made it into comics. Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
