Back in September Titan Comics and John Barrowman announced a brand new comic book story for the Torchwood team but there was a new addition to this new series.
‘Torchwood: The Culling’ out tomorrow October 18th will feature a new character – Sladen a tribute to Elisabeth Sladen better known to Doctor Who fans as companion Sarah Jane Smith.
“We are very excited to bring this new character Sladen to the world of Torchwood. You all know both Carole and I were great fans of the wonderful Elisabeth Sladen who played Sarah Jane Smith and what a better way to pay homage to her and create a character with her last name. Elisabeth Sladen was the mother of our ship on Doctor Who and now Sladen lives in Torchwood,” said Barrowman.
Torchwood #1 is written by John Barrowman and his sister and writing partner Carole Barrowman with artwork by Neil Edwards.
