Covers unveiled for 12th Doctor issue #3.12

Two covers for the third part of my four-part 12th Doctor story, The Hordes of Heaven, have been revealed. The first has artwork by CarlosCabrera and Mariano Laclaustra and the second has a photo-cover by Will Brooks.

The former is based on a very famous painting Wanderer above the Sea of Fog by the German painter Caspar David Friedrich:


There’s also a synopsis that contains spoilers!

So if you don’t want to know what might turn up in the story, look away now…

“The Hosts with the most and the Angels you never want to meet in a darkened spaceship corridor collide in an unforgettable epic – featuring the twelfth Doctor and Bill in an all-new adventure!”

It also features Nardole and a guest appearance by Missy!

Covers and Synopsis Revealed for my New Doctor Who Story

The covers for the first in a new run on Titan ongoing 12th Doctor comic have been revealed. They feature amazing artwork by Simon Myers & Rachel Smith and David Carr as well as a fantastic World Enough and TimeThe Doctor Falls photo montage cover by the irrepressible Will Brooks.

Titled A Confusion of Angels, the story does not feature Cybermen. However, there are some familiar faces showing up in the story with both the Host (from 2007’s Christmas Special , Voyage of the Damned) and the Weeping Angels (first seen in the same year’s Blink) putting in appearances.

And they are not the only returning characters. However, to say more really would be, well, “spoilers”…

Starring the 12th Doctor, Bill and Nardole (with Missy in a supporting role), A Confusion of Angels starts in the Twelfth Doctor 3.10 and will be available in shops just in time for Doctor Who‘s 54th Anniversary – 22nd November 2017.


Preview Now Available of 12th Doctor #3.6 from Titan!

We can see that the Doctor and the Ice warriors are having to club together against a common enemy: the Flood from Russell T. Davies and Phil Ford’s rather brilliant The Waters of Mars.

I am writing Titan’s Doctor Who San Diego Comic Con Exclusive Comic!

I am so excited to announce that I am writing the 12th Doctor comic for the SDCC exclusive, just revealed by Titan. It’s called “The Last Action Figure” and stars Bill and 12 as they try to find an ultra-rare action figure.

Here’s the official blurb:

“When the Doctor and Bill get entangled in the hunt for an impossibly-rare action figure, their journey takes them all across time and space!”

The SDCC Exclusive comes in two variants (Twelfth Doctor – cover A, left – and Bill Potts – cover B, right) with simply gorgeous artwork covers from the amazing Alice X. Zhang!

I will be at the Con signing these exclusives so if you;re there make sure you swing by th Titan stand (#5534).

If you have ever wanted your name to appear in a Doctor Who now’s your chance! I am offering you the opportunity to name a character in an upcoming book or comic that I am writing. It is for the best possible cause: to help the victims of the Grenfell Tower disaster.
