The Doctor Who: The Four Doctors collection is hitting your local comic shop next week, and the folks at Titan has sent along a preview just in case you didn't catch the individual issues and are riding the fence on picking it up.
Titan Comics has sent out a Doctor Who Cover Reveal for an exclusive at Wizard World in Portland next month. The exclusive variant cover is for Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor #2.3 by Simon Fraser, also at the convention.
If you want to read the comic adventures of the Twelfth Doctor but need a good starting point, the The Twelfth Doctor Year Two is just right for you. Fans of the first year will be glad to know that series write Robbie Morrison returns, but with a new artist. Rachael Stott has some amazing pages in this preview from Titan Comics featuring the Twelfth Doctor and his companion Clara Oswald, portrayed on television by Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman.
The Tenth Doctor Year Two has been continuing the further stories of David Tennant's Tenth Doctor. Fans of Doctor Who might be interested in this preview sent to us by Titan Comics. Titan has been a great steward of the Doctor Who franchise and this series has been a fun continuation for those Doctor Who fans that miss the stories of the Tenth Doctor and aren't satisfied with just the television episodes.
The cornerstone of Titan Comics is Doctor Who. They've committed to regular series for the current Doctor, His Eleventh incarnation, and his Tenth incarnation. They've even done mini-series for The Eighth and Ninth Doctors. Now the Ninth Doctor joins his successors in getting his own regular series.
The Troop is a new comic series written by British actor Noel Clarke. You probably remember him from Doctor Who or Star Trek: Into Darkness. I always tend to be hesitant when actors try their hand at writing comics. The results are mixed and actors have a tendency to finish the project and move on. Going in the Troop's favor is that Titan has apparently been out to publish some good comics, using the attention their Doctor Who license gives them.
Titan Comics is going to make a Fourth Doctor comics series! Titan has not been one to shy away from pleasing fans of the previous doctors, making continuing series featuring the tenth and eleventh doctors and miniseries that feature the ninth doctor and the war doctor. Now Titan is going back to before the current Doctor Who series to present new stories featuring one of the most popular Doctors, the Fourth Doctor, that was portrayed by Tom Baker.
The Eighth Doctor, as portrayed by Paul McGann, is almost entirely unknown to Doctor Who fans that haven't indulged in non-television portrayals of the Doctor. Titan Comics helps remedy that a little with a new series featuring the Eighth Doctor. Since so much of this regeneration's adventures are left open, a new comic series of his adventures should be able to pleasantly entertain. Does it succeed? How does it stack up to other adventures of the Doctor? There's only one way to find out.
Earlier this month, we shared a review of Assassin's Creed #1 by writers Anthony Del Col and Conor McCreery. Conor was gracious enough to answer some of our questions.
Assassins Creed #1 is getting a lot of promotion from Titan Comics, with retailer exclusive variants and it seems like non-stop emails in our inbox. Now the time has come to see if the book is worth the hype and lives up to the excitement of the video game series that sired it.
For the record, the Tenth Doctor is my Doctor. I saw a clip online of him and immediately set out to see the adventures of the new Doctor. By the time I was able to catch up, David Tennant had finished his run and Matt Smith had become the Doctor. Now that Matt Smith has moved on, fans of the Tenth Doctor are joined by fans of the Eleventh Doctor in missing the adventures of their favorite Time Lord of Gallifrey. Fortunately, Titan Comics gives us a fix of new stories for these past Doctors, and that's where our review comes in.
In a few weeks, Titan Comics is releasing Assassin's Creed #1, taking the story from the blockbuster video game into the present day. The writers of Kill Shakespeare, Anthony Del Col and Conor McCreery are joined on the series by Doctor Who artist Neil Edwards. As soon as we have any preview pages available, we'll pass them along, and you can expect a review as soon as we get our hands on a copy. Until then check out these variant covers for the premiere issue, in stores October 14!
