The tenth season of Doctor Who, starring Peter Capaldi’s Twelfth Doctor, is premiering on BBC America on Saturday, April 15, 2017 at 9 PM. As the anticipation for this new season builds, Titan Comics has given Whovians something else to look forward to. On Saturday, September 2, Titan Comics is honoring all things wibbly-wobbly with Doctor Who Comics Day!
This global event is inspired by Titan Comics’ impressive line of Doctor Who comic books. As 2017 marks the fourth annual Doctor Who Comics Day, Titan is going all out with new comics, collections, merchandise, variant covers, and signings. Not to mention events across the world at comic shops, bookstores, retail chains, libraries, and on digital platforms. Fans can even register for an event kit to hold their own reading group parties.
Last year’s event tied in the celebration of the Cybermen’s 50th anniversary, culminating with the release of the five-part Doctor Who comics and Supremacy of the Cybermen series crossover. Led by Doctor Who comics writers Cavan Scott and George Mann, with art by Ivan Rodriguez, Walter Geovanni, and Alessandro Vitti, this release allowed readers to celebrate Doctor Who Comics Day at over 2,000 locations.
This year, Titan Comics is presenting a story crossing over all four ongoing series (Ninth, Tenth, Eleventh, and Twelfth Doctor comics), kicking 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! 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!” Titan Comics’ Brand Manager Chris Thompson said.
Join the global excitement with the Alpha issue. More details about the story and the creative teams will be revealed in the coming weeks.
