The newest incarnation of the Doctor is making his comic book debut this month in “Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor,” a new series from Titan Comics. The first five-issue run is written by Robbie Morrison (“The Adventures of Nikolai Dante,” “2000 AD”) and features art by Dave Taylor (“Batman: Death by Design,” “2000 AD”). In the 32-page first issue, which hits comic shops Oct. 15, Clara Oswald (as played by Jenna Coleman) is getting ready for an evening of grading papers and going out on a date when the freshly regenerated Doctor (as played by Peter Capaldi) whisks her to a faraway world where they face down alien flora and fauna. And despite the Time Lord’s new, more serious visage, it seems he still makes time for witty banter, poking some fun at the 11th Doctor’s fashion sense. “You humans […]

While Peter Capaldi has already made his “Doctor Who” television debut as the Twelfth Doctor, he’ll be making his inaugural comic appearance this fall: Titan Comics has shared the upcoming covers that feature the latest Time Lord. As reported earlier this year, Titan Comics has taken over publishing rights to the series from IDW Comics, which had published “Doctor Who” tales in North America since 2008. In July, Titan will publish Tenth and Eleventh Doctor editions, with the Doctor as portrayed by David Tennant and Matt Smith, respectively, in the long-running science-fiction television series. “Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor” No. 1 will hit stores Oct. 1, with Capaldi on the regular cover, and will be penned by writer Robbie Morrison (“Drowntown,” “The Authority,” “ 2000AD,” “Nikolai Dante”) and artist Dave Taylor (“Batman: Death by Design,” “2000AD”). As with the Tenth and […]

The Tenth and Eleventh Doctors are returning in new “Doctor Who” comic books from Titan Comics later this year. BBC and U.K. publisher Titan have teamed to release stand-alone adventures featuring the Tenth and Eleventh Doctors (portrayed by David Tennant and Matt Smith, respectively, in the long-running science-fiction television series). The Twelfth Doctor (Peter Capaldi) also will be featured after the new TV season kicks off later in 2014. The deal with Titan, which BBC announced Tuesday, marks a new home for “Doctor Who” comics, which have been published by IDW in North America since 2008. During that time, IDW launched an ongoing series by writer Andy Diggle, an extended series (“Doctor Who: Prisoners of Time”) spotlighting all 11 Doctors so far, and introduced the first “Doctor Who” crossover, in which the Time Lord met Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the […]
