Titan is launching into a new era of Doctor Who comics as they introduce the Thirteenth Doctor, and have released information about the launch and what we’ll find in shops as part of the celebration.
The series will boast an all-female creative team, including Eisner-nominated writer Jody Houser (Stranger Things, Mother Panic, Faith, Spider-Man) artist Rachael Stott (Doctor Who, Motherlands), and colorist Enrica Angiolini (Warhammer 40,000).
If you’ve watched the trailers released so far, you’ll know that the new Doctor will be played by Jodie Whittaker (Broadchurch), and she’ll be traveling the cosmos with three brand new friends: Graham (played by Bradley Walsh), Yasmin (Mandip Gill), and Ryan (Tosin Cole), and the same will be true of the comic series.
Jody Houser says:
I love the hope of Doctor Who. Anyone can have an adventure. No matter how old you are, there are still amazing things to discover in the universe. Exploring what makes our new Doctor tick, and what makes this regeneration unique as compared to the previous incarnations, is what I’m really looking forward to doing in the new series.
Titan will be launching thirteen variant covers to celebrate the new Doctor’s debut, including art covers by Alice X. Zhang, series artist Rachael Stott, Babs Tarr (Batgirl, Motor Crush), Sanya Anwar (Assassin’s Creed), Paulina Ganucheau (Zodiac Starforce), Sarah Graley (Rick and Morty), Ariela Kristantina (Mata Hari) and Katie Cook (Adventure Time). There will also be a photo cover, a cosplay variant and a Doctor Puppet variant by Alisa Stern, creator of the Doctor Puppet Youtube series.
Doctor Who: The Thirteenth Doctor #2 will feature covers by Paulina Ganucheau and Rachael Stott, as well as a photo cover.
Look out for Doctor Who: The Thirteenth Doctor #1 in shops on October 17th, 2018.
