Meet Titan’s Doctor Who Comics Creators At Forbidden Planet!
Celebrate all things Who at Forbidden Planet! Rob Williams and Al Ewing will be signing our exclusive Variant Cover of Doctor Who 11th #1 in Bristol on July 26th from 3 – 4pm, and they will be joined in London on 2nd August by artist Des Taylor to sign both Doctor Who 10th #1 and Doctor Who 11th #1, also from 3 – 4pm.
You should already know that Titan has taken over the Doctor Who comics license from IDW in North America; you may also know that due to DWM’s license, these comics will be of limited available in the UK. If you’re a fan of Doctor Who comics and can’t get your hands on imports, don’t worry – they’ll be available in digital formats.
Do, what’s with the two new series?
In the 10th Doctor’s adventure, Gabriella Gonzalez is stuck in a dead-end job in her family’s New York laundrette, dreaming of college and bigger, better, and brighter things.
So when a strange man with an even stranger big blue box barges into her life on the eve of the Day of the Dead celebrations, talking about an infestation of psychic aliens, she seizes her chance for adventure with both hands. After Donna’s tragic exit, the Doctor thought he was done with companions.
But Gabby Gonzalez is going to prove him wrong – if she survives the night!
And the 11th Doctor brings us a whole new story – an all-new ongoing series, with a time-twisting leap into the unknown!
Alice Obiefune has just lost her mother when the Doctor explodes into her life. But what does a grieving young woman have to do with the career of a 70s musician, an amnesiac alien time traveler, and a terrifying cosmic threat? In the wake of the second Big Bang, discover what the Doctor gets up to when Amy and Rory aren’t around!
Plus, every issue includes a “Titans” strip and a brand-new humour strip!
