COMIC BOOK RELEASE: Jack's Back! Torchwood Returns In New Comic Book Series
"The Earth has plenty of deadly secrets still to share. And humanity is never short of enemies..."
Captain Jack is back!
We know that many of our readers are fans of John Barrowman and Torchwood too, so we're happy to bring some good news shared by our friends at Titan Comics. As announced at San Diego Comic Con last weekend, Titan Comics are launching the debut issue of their new Torchwood comic series next month. Jack, Gwen and Rhys are all back, and you can expect a few more familiar faces and locations along the way
But not only is there a brand new adventure based on the much missed BBC show, it's been penned by one of its stars! John Barrowman - Jack Harkness himself - has teamed up once again with his sister Carole to write the story, and, after their much acclaimed collaboration on the Torchwood novel Exodus Code, fans can be certain that this new venture won't disappoint. The pair are supported by artists Antonio Fuso (Drive, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest) and Pasquale Qualano (Batman ’66, She Hulk, Harley Quinn) and the debut issue comes with variant covers to collect from Doctor Who superstar artists including Tommy Lee Edwards (Tenth Doctor, Turf), Elena Casagrande (Tenth Doctor, The X-Files), Blair Shedd (Ninth Doctor) and Rod Reis (Doctor Who, C.O.W.L.).
Torchwood Issue #1 will be available from comic book stores from Wednesday 3rd August or directly from www.titan-comics.com. Fans can also pre-order via Forbidden Planet in the UK who will ship worldwide. A digital version will be available via ComiXology.
