Cover blurb:
CLASSIC STRIPS FROM THE PAGES OF DOCTOR WHO MAGAZINE!

The Sixth Doctor, Peri and their shapeshfting penguin chum Frobisher take a madcap journey through space, time and magical realms in this first volume of their comic strip adventures from the pages of Doctor Who Magazine!

This book features the following digitally restored stories, represented in their original episodic format for the first time: THE SHAPE-SHIFTER, VOYAGER, POLLY THE GLOT, ONCE UPON A TIME LORD, WAR-GAME, FUNHOUSE, KANE'S STORY, ABEL'S STORY, THE WARRIOR'S STORY, and FROBISHER'S STORY!

Tasked to retrieve a set of stolen starcharts by the awesome and terrifying Voyager, the Doctor must pursue the insane Time Lord Astrolabus across the universe, through world [sic] of fantasy and imagination, far-flung planets, and even the pages of a children's storybook.

Along the way there are reunions with the eminent Professor Ivan Asimov and the despicable Dogbolter, a run-in with a sentient house, swordplay with a Draconian Overlord, and even a quick trip to New York!

Featuring astonishing artwork from the legendary JOHN RIDGWAY (Judge Dredd, Hellblazer) plus scripts from STEVE PARKHOUSE (The BoJeffries Saga) and ALAN McKENZIE (2000 AD).

AN ESSENTIAL COLLECTION FOR FANS OF DOCTOR WHO AND CLASSIC BRITISH COMICS!

Note:  Apart from the strips mentioned on the cover, this volume also contains Polly The Glot, War-Game, Kane's Story, The Warrior's Story and Frobisher's Story. In other words, identical contents (although colourised) compared to the 2007 Voyager novel above, hence why this is listed on the same page. This colourised edition was later reprinted as part of Doctor Who Classics Omnibus II.

Cover blurb:

Catch up with the Sixth Doctor and his exploits, as writted by Steve Parkhouse and Alan McKenzie, in stories like "The Shape Shifter," the five-part "Voyager," "Once Upon A Time Lord," "Fun House," "Abel's Story," and more, all illustrated by John Ridgway!
