DOCTOR WHO Comics Featuring Peter Capaldi’s Doctor Will Debut This October


capaldi bannerThe BBC haven’t set a date for Peter Capaldi‘s debut as the new Doctor, but Titan Comics has went ahead and set a date for The Twelfth Doctor‘s comic book series. The publisher unveiled the first covers for their third Doctor Who series and mentioned that it will be arriving in comic shops on October 1st. That date will be a few months after the first episode of the new series if rumors about the show’s return turn out to be true. Writer Robbie Morrison and Dave Taylor will be bringing Capaldi into the world of comics.

Along with the announcement came a series of impressive covers from artists Alice X. Zhang (who provided stunning covers for the Tenth and Eleventh Doctor comics) and Mariano Laclaustra. There are photo variant covers featuring Capaldi and his companion Clara (Jenna Coleman) as well. The later release date for this series will most likely allow the creative team time to see an episode or two to get Capaldi‘s Doctor down before sending him off on new adventures. That’s why no story details are revealed at this time, obviously. You can read the official announcement and check out the covers below.
