I am seriously over the moon to confirm that I will be writing for Jodie Whittaker’s 13th Doctor. In an upcoming 62-page comic special we will see the newly regenerated 13th Doctor looking back at her previous lives for inspiration to take with her on her new journey and a peek forward, too.
Published by Titan on October 9th 2018, Doctor Who: The Thirteenth Doctor – Volume #0 The Many Lives of Doctor Who will have two gorgeous variant covers – one by Claudia Ianicello and one by Will Brooks.
Writing for every incarnation of theDoctor – even the one he’d rather forget: the War Doctor – and each accompanied by his many friends. From Ian and Barbara (London 1965!) through Sarah Jane Smith and Romana right up to Bill, the comic will serve as a prelude to the new TV series and also as a jumping on point for those who know nothing about Doctor Who!
One of the most exciting aspects of this projects is the fact I get to work with so many different artists – each one providing the artwork on a different Doctor – including those I have long wanted to work with but never have.
The line up includes Gioriga Sposito, Mariano Laclaustra, Arianna Florean, Iolanda Zanfardino, Neil Edwards and two of my 12th Doctor collaborators, Brian Williamson and Pasquale Qualano. Finally, I am seriously delighted that I get to work – at last – with Rachael Stott. Rachael is the official artist on Titan’s 13th Doctor ongoing series (to be written by Jody Houser) coming this autumn.
All the artists have produced seriously magnificent work and I can’t wait for you to see their artwork. Every frame is a masterpiece.
The GN won’t be out in time for San Diego Comic Con, but I will be signing my 12th Doctor collections at the Titan stand.
Although I probably won’t be in costume this year… 😉
