UK RELEASE: Doctor Who Comic UK Lands In Stores Later This Month
Titan Magazines have announced the UK launch of the BBC Doctor Who Comic, featuring brand new adventures with the Tenth, Eleventh and Twelfth Doctors in every single issue.
The action-packed comic, published under licence from BBC Worldwide, lands in stores on the 26th February. Every issue features three on-going stories featuring the three most recent incarnations of the Doctor repackaged into a UK only comic: The Tenth Doctor as played by David Tennant, the Eleventh Doctor as played by Matt Smith and the Twelfth Doctor as played by Peter Capaldi. There’s a new issue every four weeks, in a format only available in the UK.
So if you can stand the long wait for the return of the TV series, this comic will fill that Doctor Who-shaped hole in your life.
The Tenth Doctor
Join the Tenth Doctor as he deals with the aftermath of Donna Noble’s heart-breaking farewell. The Doctor feels he may never again have another companion, but maybe an adventure with some psychic aliens, a New York laundrette operator and the Mexican Day of the Dead festival can help change his mind!
The Eleventh Doctor
Then, while Amy and Rory are away, the Eleventh Doctor will play! Experience a time-twisting adventure as he hurtles down a collision course into a terrifying cosmic threat. Can the Doctor save the day once more with a grieving young woman, a 70s’ musician, and an amnesiac alien? Find out in this issue!
The Twelfth Doctor
Finally, Peter Capaldi’s Twelfth Doctor and Clara Oswald set off on a brand new adventure in the TARDIS! The Doctor is off to his most challenging destination yet. Whether he’s battling a fearsome, millennia-old entity on a freshly-terraformed planet or fighting the forces of an ancient alien, expect shocks, surprises and time-shaking revelations.
