David saved a copy for himself, of course, but he also signed two comics to be auctioned off for charity.
The first copy went for an incredible £200, attracting 33 bids, last month, and with a current bid of £72 and over five days left… well, this second copy is expected to reach similar heights!
The comic was created exclusively for Kasterborous, published in 2009 and 2010, by everyone’s favourite editor (he paid me to say that), Christian Cawley, and the equally-brilliant Brian Terranova, with art by Justin Abbot, and Rick Lundeen (with Colin Brockhurst on lettering duties). It features the tenth Doctor – and a new companion! – battle the Time Leech, a being that comes to somewhat resemble the Krynoid… but then Christian’s a big fan of The Seeds of Doom – just like most people!
The print version, priced £4.99, is now completely sold-out, but the 99p eBook remains available until Friday – and all money will be split between two well-deserving charities: The Association for International Cancer Research, and Children in Need (of which Tennant is a big supporter).
Don’t forget that Children in Need will screen an exclusive preview of the 2012 Christmas special this Friday – and is expected to announce the episode’s title.
