The conclusion to Joshua Hale Fialkov's guest run on Doctor Who will resonate with established fans of the property, but it probably won't win any new ones. Still, it should satiate the hunger of those waiting for the familiar roar of the TARDIS to return to their TV screens.

Although G.I. Joe: Retaliation #3 lets back story overshadow its actual story, it's still a fun book to read. If nothing else, it should satiate the needs of long-term fans of the property as they wait in anticipation (or fear) for the June 29, 2012 release date of the feature film.
The concept of God(s) has been a philosophical conundrum addressed since the Golden Age of comics.
