Who else is looking forward to the upcoming Doctor Who comics from Titan? Well, if you’re chomping at the proverbial bit, you can pre-order the first issues right now – or subscribe at special early-bird rates!

The Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor and Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor series are released on 23rd July, and here are the synopses:

The Tenth Doctor #1

Regular cover by Alice X. Zhang

Eisner Award-winning writer Nick Abadzis (Laika) and fan-favorite artist Elena Casagrande (Angel, Suicide Risk, Doctor Who, Star Trek) take control of the TARDIS for their first five-issue arc with the Tenth Doctor! And don’t miss the second arc, by fellow series architect Robbie Morrison (Drowntown, Nikolai Dante, The Authority)!

The Eleventh Doctor #1

Regular cover by Alice X. Zhang

THE ELEVENTH DOCTOR RETURNS IN AN ALL-NEW ONGOING SERIES, WITH A TIME-TWISTING LEAP INTO THE UNKNOWN! GERONIMO!

Series architects Al Ewing (Loki: Agent of Asgard, Mighty Avengers, Trifecta) and Rob Williams (Revolutionary War, Ordinary, Miss Fury, The Royals: Masters of War, Trifecta) kick off a whirlwind adventure through eternity for the Eleventh Doctor, with artist Simon Fraser (Nikolai Dante, Grindhouse, Doctor Who)!

… Okay, so we don’t actually know much about them yet – but I’m actually very excited about a new set of adventures for Sandshoes and Chinny!

The thing is, we might not properly see them in the UK, except digitally. Shoppers at Forbidden Planet should be able to get them – but it’ll take some time.

So why should you pre-order any comics? They will, after all, be on the shelves, right? Well, Titan warns that you might only be able to get them:

“if your local comic store has ordered enough copies!

 

It’s a weird quirk of the Direct Market that all comic store retailers have to be both time travellers and psychics.

 

Every comic that they order is non-returnable, so if they don’t sell them, they’re left holding onto stock they have already paid for.

 

(This is a different model to local bookstores, which are able to return unsold books and get money back for them).

 

So comics retail is a risky business, full of high-wire balancing acts between ordering too many copies, and too few.

 

Every pre-ordered comic means a guaranteed sale, and every pre-order they get means they can order more copies for the shelf – in confidence that the demand is high!”

Plus, there are some really cool covers, so the only way you can guarantee getting any of those is to pre-order, which you can do in the USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand in print. Head over to Titan to find out how to pre-order and/or subscribe!

    What Titan describes applies to Superman as much as DW. If your comic store regularly stocked IDW they’ll stock the Titans. If your store only brought in IDW or DWM for “files only” then you should request them. Or if by some odd chance they haven’t been paying attention and don’t know about the new series.

      Yeah, you’re right. If it’s a bigger chain (like Forbidden Planet or maybe Travelling Man), it’s likely they’ll be able to get them easily. Some smaller comic shops struggle to get them, but I’ve recently seen a few getting them, so maybe the process is getting easier for them too…?
