New 7th Doctor Comic Announced by Titan
It has been announced at the Gallifrey One Doctor Who convention in Los Angeles that I will be writing for the 7th Doctor this summer as part of a new mini-series.
BBC Worldwide Americas and Titan Comics have announced that the Seventh Doctor is back, in comic form.
This brand-new three-part comic series stars the Seventh Doctor, as played by Sylvester McCoy, alongside classic companion Ace, played by Sophie Aldred.
Released in June 2018 with a double-sized first issue, DOCTOR WHO: THE SEVENTH DOCTOR #1, is written by Seventh Doctor script editor Andrew Cartmel, and writer Ben Aaronovitch who wrote the seventh Doctor stories Remembrance of the Daleks and Battlefield. There will also be a back-up strip written by me and I am thrilled to be working with Jessica Martin who will be providing the artwork,
Jessica played the part of Mags in the 1989 TV story The Greatest Show In The Galaxy. Her character will be the lead in a story entitled AS TIME GOES BY.
The lead story involves an unknown alien intelligence in orbit around the Earth, astronauts under attack, and a terrifying, mysterious landing in the Australian interior. The future of the world itself at stake. Counter Measures activated. The Seventh Doctor and Ace are slap bang in the middle of it all! This is OPERATION VOLCANO!
Ben Aaronovitch and Andrew Cartmel return to the TARDIS, on the 30th anniversary of fan-favorite episode Remembrance of the Daleks with The Seventh Doctor comics, and are joined by illustrator Christopher Jones(The Third Doctor) and colorist Marco Lesko (Robotech, The Ninth Doctor) to bring astonishing twists and turns to the lives of the Seventh Doctor, and his companions, with Titan’s new comic series.
The debut issue comes with four variant covers to collect: three art covers by artists Alice X. Zhang, Simon Myers, and Christopher Jones, and a photo cover by Will Brooks.
