Titan Comics has announced the date for this year’s Doctor Who Comic Book Day along with a Doctor details.
This year this ever growing event will take place on Saturday, September 2nd bringing with it a brand new comic book crossover story involving all four ongoing series for the Ninth, Tenth, Eleventh, and Twelfth Doctor. The series kicks off with a super accessible Alpha issue, drawn by Rachael Stott (Twelfth Doctor), on Doctor Who Comics Day itself.
“People have been clamoring for information about our next Doctor Who Comics Day for a while, so it’s great to finally reveal the date for this year’s cel-Who-bration!” said Titan Comics’ Brand Manager, Chris Thompson, “With the Doctor returning to screens for his most stunning adventures yet in Season 10, we want to up the ante and make this year’s Doctor Who Comics Day bigger than ever before! So, grab your Sonic Screwdriver and keep your eyes peeled for more details of this year’s special event. Allons-y!”
Last year’s event tied in with the release of the brand-new, five-part ‘Doctor Who comics and Supremacy of the Cybermen’ series crossover, in celebration of the Cybermen’s 50th anniversary. The series was written by Doctor Who comics writers Cavan Scott and George Mann, with art by Ivan Rodriguez, Walter Geovanni, and Alessandro Vitti.
