There will be no official Doctor Who panel at this year’s SDCC 2014 – but that doesn’t mean the Time Lord won’t be a strong presence at the San Diego Comic Con! A comic book panel will take place on Saturday 26th July, and will be bookended by signings.
SDCC 2014 is the place to be if you’re a comics or cult TV fan, and Titan Comics has taken the opportunity to launch their brand new Tenth and Eleventh Doctor titles after they got the license from IDW. In Room 23ABC, the panel will consist of writer Nick Abadzis, artist Elena Casagrande, cover artist Alice X. Zhang and editor, Andrew James, and attendees will be given a special Doctor Who Comics Day goodie bag plus an opportunity to win exclusive merchandise.
Titan booth, #5537, will host signings on Friday and Saturday, though times are yet to be announced.
Furthermore, there are plenty of exclusive limited covers from Diamond, Titan and (my favourite) the BBCShop, so be quick to nab them up!
It’s likely that there will be no SDCC 2014 panel from the official Doctor Who crew due to the world tour, which will kick off in Cardiff, Wales, before heading to London and then off to Seoul (South Korea), Sydney (Australia), New York (US), Mexico City (Mexico) and Rio de Janeiro (Brazil). “After 8 months solid filming deep in the world of monsters,” Peter Capaldi, aka the Twelfth Doctor, says, “Jenna and I are thrilled to be heading for the Planet of Fans.”
It’s a shame, of course, seen as previous Doctor Matt Smith absolutely loved SDCC, but I’m sure the world tour will be incredible and that Capaldi and co. will be there in 2015 instead. Don’t forget to check out full details of the panel and signing sessions.
