Comic Art

John! Have you lost your mind? That image on the right - it''s...a photograph! That's right dear friend, not drawn, taken. Why you may ask. Well the image on left here is a DC Comics poorly known villain by the name of Mister Who. The character on right is one of the numerous, and perhaps most popular ever portrayals of the science fiction television icon (from Britain) Doctor Who. Now come on, look hard - don't you wonder who ripped off who? (pun intended)

Or maybe it's the David Tenant Doctor Who that looks more like Mister Who, but however you want to compare, comparison is mandated. Now, of course, comics tear through characters like Niagara Falls tears through water, so rip-offs are fairly common and I have no idea who came first here or who did the ripping, but puh-leaze! When you have the look and barely a name change, you've turned borrowing an idea into flat out stealing.

Now Doctor Who is one of the most enduring and iconic characters in television history. Mister Who is a pimple on the butt of comic books. What's that say?
