This is a piece of art that hopefully will feature as the back cover for Vworp, Vworp magazine. The pencils were done by Ben Willsher and myself. Inks by me and colours by Westley Smith. Ben later added the retro "news print". Hope you like.
I was worried that I was one of only a handful of people who liked Daak. Daak was often looked down on by a lot of Who fans for being everything that the Doctor wasn't, a psycho anti-hero who would only do acts of good if it served himself or his quest for vengeance - he was the original Riddick! glad to find that others liked him too.
Abslom Daak wasn't ALL bad, he cared about his friends (Whatever was left of them!) even though he didn't always show it. He respected the Doctor even though they were almost completely different in their ways of fighting the Daleks inevitable tidal wave-like rise to power. He seemed to really care about Taiyin, just in a very violent self-loathing way! He got along surprisingly well with Salander AND Harma, (even if he didn't feel the same way about Vol Mercurius...) he was interested in money but could get over it pretty quickly if he had to do without it. And most importently? HE KICKED DALEK BUTT!
If Abslom Daak had the ability to regenerate like the Doctor, it would mean the Doctor would have an ally for a good long time... And the Daleks might finally have an enemy as dangerous as the Doctor himself!
Actuall, the sad thing abou Jack Harkness is that he CAN die! It's just going to take VERY long time for him to do it! Plus, the vast energies used to bring him back might exaust if they're forced to keep going for too long leaving him vulnerable if he's forced to ressurect from repeted attacks one too many times so it can still hap[pen just not quickly. In otherwords? Even an immortal can die, just not easily! As for an army of cloned Daaks? Hmmm, I wonder if the universe is big enough for 2 Daaks let alone an army! LOL But seriously, it could work, If the Sontarans could do it so could Daak. However, cloning is still a flawed technology and just because Daak's clones LOOK like him doesn't mean they would FIGHT like him! So it may be a bit early to celebrate the Daleks "Final end" if you know what I mean!
It's a fun image. I always liked Ace - but she seems to have been forgotten now. She was the first companion who could hold her own and disagree with the Doctor from time to time, unlike Rose who for some reason turned into a shallow Doctor groupie.
Well while she hasn't returned, she was mentioned in an episode of The Sarah Jane Adventures called 'Death to the Doctor' (an episode which also featured Jo Grant - the Third Doctor's companion). In the episode, Sarah Jane says she has researched many previous companions of the Doctor and what they are doing now. Those whom she has traced include the following:
