Doctor Who Comics Day!

Tomorrow, on Saturday 15th August, it’s Doctor Who Comics Day so the guys from The fan show delved into the world of Doctor Who Comics to find out what’s going on! Presented by Christel Dee.

Weapons of Past Destruction – Comic Book Series with the ninth Doctor

Weapons of Past Destruction, the brand-new 5 part mini-series comics starring the Ninth Doctor as played by Christopher Eccleston was written by the co-author of bestselling ‘Who-ology’, Cavan Scott. The Ninth Doctor is back: leaving World War II behind, he, Rose Tyler and Captain Jack discover that Time Lord technology, lost in the wake of the Time War, is being sold on the intergalactic black market! Now the threat of a new temporal war brews on the horizon. Can the Doctor stop history repeating itself?

The Twelfth Doctor Titan Comic #1 trailer, October 15

The first number of The Twelfth Doctor Titan Comic will be releases just a few days from now. Whovian, get them! 🙂

Offering shocks, surprises, and galaxy-shaking revelations, seasoned TARDIS pilot Robbie Morrison (Drowntown, The Authority, 2000AD, Nikolai Dante) and New York Times-bestselling artist Dave Taylor (Batman: Death by Design; 2000AD) mark the start of their first five-issue run by diving headfirst into the console room and pulling all the levers they can – spinning the new Doctor off to his most challenging destination yet!

Freshly regenerated and with a new head full of unanswered questions, the Doctor (as played by Peter Capaldi) whisks Clara Oswald (as played by Jenna Coleman) away to a strange and distant world.

Clara thought she was in for an evening of marking essays on the Metaphysical Poets, followed by going out on a date – or at least trying to. You know, normal stuff.

Instead, she’s facing down exotic flora and fauna in her best dress, backing up the Doctor on a trek through traumatically alien undergrowth – and she doesn’t even know what the Doctor is searching for, or what will try to kill them should they find it!

New Face! New Doctor! New Beginning! Get in on the ground floor of this amazing ongoing series!

Time Leech, Doctor Who comics for charity

I’ve never read the Time Leech comics, so this info about the adventures is new for me. Whatever. I found an article about this and I consider it interested to promote: you can get a copy of this comics and you can help other people.

You may recall that the first Time Leech adventure saw the Tenth Doctor landing in a London where Churchill was Prime Minister, Silurians and Elizabethans rubbed shoulders (seriously, two years beforeThe Wedding of River Song!) and the epicentre was a giant Time Leech in the middle of eating Westminster Abbey.

Following this, the Doctor and his mysterious new companion Ruth headed into space in Hellstar, where they found a deserted prison ship, empty bar a monster and a recovery crew… but they held a terrible secret that no one could have possibly guessed.

The final part, Time Bomb, saw the discovery of a giant Time Lord weapon materializing on Earth. Naturally only the Doctor can prevent detonation, but someone else is interested in the device…

Due to licensing restrictions the three-part Doctor Who strip can’t be published and request payment (BBC’s Doctor Who characters are copyrighted. But there is at least a way to work around the legal troubles.

There will be two targets for the raised funds: Children in Need and AICR (Association for International Cancer Research).

You have two ways to purchase your copy of Time Leech. First, there is the print version, in traditional graphic novel format. This has a price of £4.99 including postage and packing (£9.99 for international orders).

The second choice is the entire adventure in PDF, available for 99p. (We also have a second electronic format, CBR, available. If you require CBR, let us know when you checkout.)

Star Trek meets Doctor Who: Forbidden planet, London, Wednesday 30th may 6 – 7pm

Some time ago I wrote about Star Trek meets Doctor Who and the announcement from The Huffington Post about an unholy alliance between “Star Trek’s” Borg and “Doctor Who’s” Cybermen into a story into crossover comics. It was also announced that the story will be published in May, courtesy of an IDW comic book.

Well, as it was later announced here:

Writer TONY LEE will be signing the Forbidden Planet Variant launch issue of STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION / DOCTOR WHO – ASSIMILATION at The Forbidden Planet Megastore on Wednesday 30th May from 6:00 to 7:00pm.
The two greatest science-fiction properties of all time cross over for the first time in history!
When the Federation’s most terrifying enemy strikes an unholy alliance with one of the Doctor’s most hated antagonists, the result is devastation on a cosmic scale! Spanning the ends of space and time itself, Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the USS Enterprise find themselves joining forces with the Doctor and his companions, with the fate of the galaxy hanging in the balance!

Comic writer Tony Lee’s work includes both the ongoing tenth and eleventh doctor comics and ‘Doctor Who: The Forgotten’ for IDW as well as ‘Rat Trap’, a 5th Doctor adventure for Big Finish. His graphic novel Hope Falls is being developed into a screenplay for Future Films and Danger Academy is currently being developed into a cartoon series for American TV.

The unholy alliance between “Star Trek’s” Borg and “Doctor Who’s” Cybermen

The Huffington Post announces about an unholy alliance between “Star Trek’s” Borg and “Doctor Who’s” Cybermen into a story into crossover comics. The story will be published in May, courtesy of an IDW comic book.

According to a Monday press release from the company, “Star Trek: The Next Generation/Doctor Who: Assimilation2” will feature “an unholy alliance” between the two villains. This sounds like an excellent idea for a comic book and, not just because two races of relentless, mechanized villains are better than one, but because an on-screen depiction of that kind of epic tale would be unworkable (especially given that “TNG” ended in 1994) and hugely expensive.
So who you gonna call when two mechanical races team up to bring disaster to humanity? Jean-Luc Picard and the Doctor, obviously.
