A Month of... Board Games! Day 23: I'd tip my hat to you, but I haven't got a hat!

Hey, I wonder if there's any rush to play today's Doctor Who game?

Not unless your name is Saul.

"Travels of the Tardis" from Doctor Who Annual 1968 (World Distributors, Manchester, September 1967); creators unknown

This is the third Doctor Who Annual but the first to feature the second Doctor, Patrick Troughton. Now, I don't know which artist(s) drew the annual's comics and spot illustrations, but whoever it was, they really liked the Doctor's hat:

A lot of people curse the BBC for erasing their master tapes of so many of the Second Doctor's serials, that they've been lost to time. But really, you oughta thank the Beeb: they were just savin' you from lookin' at that big-ass hat.

Here's a full-page spread board game I did for The San Diego Union-Tribune's entertainment tab in 2003, to help promote/glorify/share the San Diego Comic-Con experience with newspaper readers.

Need game pieces/pogs? Got you covered... with the cover illustration.


To qualify, these need to be from a professional cartoonist/comics creator, yes? Well, here I am:
