Covers And Story Details For Both Of Titan Comics’ DOCTOR WHO Series Revealed

by

doctor who bannerA few weeks ago Titan Comics unveiled the creative teams for their two Doctor Who comic book series that will be launching this summer. While we have to wait a little while longer for a Peter Capaldi comic, we do get two new books looking at David Tennant‘s Tenth Doctor and Matt Smith‘s Eleventh Doctor. While the original announcement had the creative teams and some absolutely stunning covers from Alice X. Zhang, today the full solicit info with more story details and even more covers have been revealed by Bleeding Cool.

I won’t insult your intelligence since you can read the full info below, but there are a few things worth pointing out. Each series will see the introduction of brand-new companions for both Doctors. David Tennant‘s comic will take place after Series 4 and the heartbreaking departure of Donna Noble. The years where the Tenth Doctor wandered around avoiding his ultimate demise is ripe for exploration, as the 50th Anniversary proved, so it will be interesting to see where things go. Besides the covers from Zhang, there is a subscription variant from Elena Casagrande, and a special photo cover.

The Eleventh Doctor‘s adventures will take place after Series Five and the Big Bang 2 when Amy and Rory became companions who stayed at home in between their adventures. In addition to Zhang‘s cover for the Eleventh Doctor, there is a subscription variant from Simon Fraser and a special photo cover. What do you think about the new Doctor Who comic book news? Will you be picking these up?
