Barrowman Torchwood Comic Strip

Tochwood Magazine 14 is on sale today – and features a comic strip written by John Barrowman and his sister Carole!

Captain Jack and the Selkie pits the indestructible hero against an alien threat on a remote Scottish island, far from the Torchwood HQ.  Barrowman himself is said to be very pleased with the result:

"It’s brilliant work, the panels with the selkie are completely breathtaking… and Jack looks so damn good."

With art from Tommy Lee Edwards and Trevor Goring and letters by John Workman, Captain Jack and the Selkie looks set to be John’s first step of many into comic book writing, with Torchwood Magazine editor Mart Eden already planning to use the Torchwood star as a writer again in future.
