Doctor Who in Comics: 1964 – 2011

Here’s a rare treat for Aficionados of the comic strip adventures of the Doctor – London’s Cartoon Museum has announced an exhibition of artwork from the Time Lord’s comics starting with the first appearances in TV Comic back in 1964 right through to 2011.

While many of you might be more familiar with the comic strips in Doctor Who Magazine (and earlier Doctor Who Weekly/Monthly) and Doctor Who Adventures – not to mention IDW’s superb series – the Doctor had a fascinating run of occasionally uncharacteristic adventures in TV Comic, Countdown and TV Action during the 1960s and 1970s.

Titled Doctor Who in Comics: 1964 – 2011, the event is planned to spread across three galleries, with images likely to feature the work of names such as Dave Gibbons, John Ridgway, Richard Piers Rayner, Lee Sullivan and Adrian Salmon among many others.

More information on event which runs from 27th July – 30th October 2011 can be found at www.cartoonmuseum.org
