Partworking its way onto shelves this Spring will be a brand new Doctor Who magazine- featuring artwork by Ubu Bubu cartoonist Jamie Smart.
Smart revealed via his blog that the BBC had commissioned him to continue the series after producing a sample issue based, which was released in an undisclosed part of the country, on forthcoming series earlier in the year.
Blogging, Smart said:
“Word came in a little while ago that it had gone well, they were to roll the magazine out across the UK, and would I consider carrying on?”
A long-term contract like this, to produce weekly work for over a year, is usually a dream to freelancers, but I did have concerns. There are already a handful of other projects I need to be working on next year, and I’ve been real worried that I’m trying to take too much on.
But then the sense of reason kicks in – it’sÂ Dr Sodding Who. What an opportunity.”
For those in the dark, Ubu Bubu is a four part comic mini-series about an uber cute and the hideousÂ demons who possess his soul. Working together kittyÂ and itsÂ demonic possessor invade the homeÂ of two unwitting children and begin to prepareÂ for the forthcomingÂ apocalypse.
