Scotland Bound, Charlie Brown by Jason Cooper; art by Robert Pope; colours by Hannah White (KaBOOM! 2021) A pleasant graphic novel that channels the spirit of the Charlie Brown television specials rather than the Peanuts comic strip. There are some nice character moments and shout-outs, and a few laughs. The gang’s new Scottish friend Nell proves a welcome addition.
Doctor Who: Dark Horizons by J. T. Colgan (BBC, 2012) While writing in a style evoking the tv show’s snapshot paciness, Colgan nevertheless crafts a solid historical setting — a Scottish island under both Viking and alien incursion — and adds depth to the mercurial flitting about of Matt Smith’s otherworldly (yet unworldly) Doctor.
