“For those rabid fans of George R.R. Martin, Doorways may be familiar. It is in fact the same title he used in conjunction with a pilot he wrote for ABC in 1991 … [artist Stefano Martino] has created a great style that is reminiscent to me of the early days of Image Comics … It’s a fun story, and certainly worth a read.” – Staffers Book Review

Dr. Thomas Mason had a regular life, with a regular job, and a regular girlfriend. Until one night, zapped from somewhere else, a mysterious young woman named Cat ends up in his ER.

Pursued by the government and twisted creatures from her own world, Cat inadvertently embroils Tom in her quest for freedom. Which takes him to alternative Earths he never imagined – and which he may never get back from!

Doorways was the great 'what if' of my career, the television pilot that was right on the edge of being greenlit to series... but in the end was not. I spent a year and a half of my life with Tom and Cat, writing about them, thinking about them, making plans for their adventures. It broke my heart when it all came to naught. But now, at last, thanks to IDW and the talent of Stefano Martino, the world will get to share some of those adventures. And even better, the comics format will allow us to do things with the story and the visuals that we would never have been able to do on television!” – George R. R. Martin

“So is it any good? … Yes, yes it is. The premise works well in comic-form (much like Buffy translated well to comic form) … The premise is great, the art is fantastic, the writing is solid.”

“Doorways is the comic book adaptation of a legendary but never broadcast television series. It fell through the cracks as network executives changed, frustrating fans greatly at the time … Over the years, George R. R. Martin has had great success both in television and in print, but he and his fans have always had a fondness for this "missing" work … Artist Stefano Martino has done a good job with creating devices and weapons that feel like they're "not from around here." Martin has had other works adapted for comics, and has a good feel for how much story can be told on a comics page.”

“There are wunderkinds, there are late bloomers, and then there is George R. R. Martin.”
