Are you a Matt Smith fan or a David Tennant devotee? Whichever Whovian side you might land on, Titan Comics will have you covered this July when they release two new Doctor Who comic series featuring all-new adventures of both beloved doctors.
The first new ongoing series is Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor, featuring the adventures of the good doctor as played by David Tennant. Series writer Nick Abadzis (Laika) and fan-favorite Elena Casagrande (Angel, Doctor Who, Star Trek) are the Tenth Doctor’s creative team. According to the official synopsis, “Gabriella Gonzalez is stuck in a dead-end job in her family’s New York Laundromat, dreaming of college and bigger, better and brighter things. So when a strange man with an even stranger big blue box barges into her life on the eve of the Day of the Dead celebrations – talking about an infestation of psychic aliens – she seizes her chance for adventure with both hands. After Donna’s tragic exit, the Doctor thought he was done with new companions. But Gabby Gonzalez is going to prove him wrong… if she survives the night…”
Also on sale this summer is Titan Comics’ second ongoing Doctor Who series, this time featuring the Matt Smith version of the character, Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor, from the creative team of writers Al Ewing (Loki: Agent of Asgard, Mighty Avengers) and Rob Williams (Miss Fury, The Royals: Masters of War) and artist Simon Fraser (Nikolai Dante, Grindhouse). In the first storyline, Alice Obiefune has just lost her mother when the Doctor explodes into her life. But what does this grieving young woman have to do with the career of a ’70s musician, an amnesiac alien, and a terrifying cosmic threat?
Titan Comics has a lot of great titles coming this July, Sally of the Wasteland #1, Springheeled Jack, Four Horsemen, and Alien Legion, among others, but all eyes are on the new Doctor Who ongoing books, as Titan reminds fans why they fell in love with the series in the first place, just as the television show prepares to move on to a whole new era. Both new Doctor Who books land July 20th.
