New ‘Wood Order
Excitable Torchwood fans, still vibrating with enough energy to power the village of Stonebroom afterÂ thisÂ weekends announcements can ease themselves backÂ down toÂ Earth by picking upÂ Issue numero Uno ofÂ the Torchwood Comic.
Publishers Titan have released this animated trailer to celebrate its launch tomorrow.
Artist Tommy Lee Edwards, who’s Â currently working with the chief of chat Jonathan Ross on the hit comic series Turf has teamed up with John Barrowman and his sister Carole E. to bring you CaptainÂ Jack andÂ the Selkie which sees (Group) Captain Jack facing a deadly threat on a remote Scottish island.
In the second story – entitled Broken -Â Torchwood Script Editor Gary Russell and Judge Dredd and Doctor Who comic artist Adrian Salmon invite fans into a cosmic hotel (please let that be better than it sounds) where Jack and Ianto areÂ trapped along with an old enemy from the TV series.
Whether or not you see Ianto’s return as contrition towards fans still weaping into there red ties or as a welcome nod to the past by a licenced comic stuck between old and new potential fans depends on just how much faith you have in the new series (due to hit screens in the summer of 2011.)
Both stories have already appeared in Titan’sÂ Torchwood Magazine in the UK.
