PRESS RELEASE


PAUL CORNELL RETURNS TO DOCTOR WHO COMICS FOR AN UNEXPECTED TWIST ON THE THIRD DOCTOR!

Facebooktwitterredditmail

May 18, 2016 – BBC Worldwide North America and Titan Comics are excited to announce the return of the Third Doctor this August, in comics! This brand-new five-part comic series, written by fan-favorite Doctor Who scribe Paul Cornell (Wolverine, Action Comics, The Severed Streets), stars the Third Doctor, as played by Jon Pertwee, alongside companions Jo Grant (Katy Manning) and the Brigadier (Nicholas Courtney) in classic Doctor Who action.

Hitting stores and digital platforms on August 31st, Doctor Who: The Third Doctor expands Titan Comics’ hugely popular and critically acclaimed Doctor Who comics, which already include adventures from the Fourth, Eighth, Ninth, Tenth, Eleventh, and Twelfth Doctors.

Fresh off last year’s epic smash-hit, Four Doctors, Paul Cornell teams up with artist Christopher Jones (Young Justice, Marvel’s Avengers) to bring unexpected twists and turns to the lives of the Third Doctor and his companions in an all-new story, “The Heralds Of Destruction.”

Actor Jon Pertwee starred as the Third Doctor in 128 episodes from 1970 to 1974. Pertwee’s portrayal of the Doctor was a suave, dapper, and technologically oriented man of action, who spent his time stranded on Earth, working with the international military group UNIT.

When something enormous and extraterrestrial crashes into Bedfordshire, the Doctor, Jo Grant, and the forces of UNIT under Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart mobilize immediately to investigate – and find themselves in the middle of a pitched battle against a terrifying invader! But the shocking face that awaits their return to base may tip their whole world off its axis.

The debut issue comes with five variant covers to collect: three art covers by artists Josh Burns, Simon Myers, and Paul McCaffrey, a photo cover, and a blank sketch cover.

Retailers can order issue #1 of Doctor Who: The Third Doctor from the June edition of Diamond PREVIEWS. This all-new storyline in the world of an old classic will delight longtime fans and freshly converted Whovians alike. Fans can find their nearest comic store at ComicShopLocator.com.

DOCTOR WHO TV SPINOFF, TORCHWOOD IS BACK, IN COMICS!

Titan Comics is excited to announce that Doctor Who TV spinoff Torchwood is back, in an all-new ongoing comic series starring the daring Captain Jack Harkness and Gwen Cooper.

Written by Captain Jack himself – John Barrowman – and Carole E. Barrowman, and with issues illustrated by Antonio Fuso (Drive, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest) and Pasquale Qualano (Batman ’66, She Hulk, Harley Quinn), this spectacular original ongoing series is not to be missed.

In continuity with the new hit Torchwood audio dramas from Big Finish, as part of the official continuation of the Torchwood saga, the comic arrives in stores on July 6 – the week of Titan’s third annual Doctor Who Comics Day event – Saturday, July 9 2016.

The BAFTA-winning cult science-fiction drama by Doctor Who showrunner Russell T Davies, which aired for four successful seasons from 2006 to 2011, follows the exploits of Captain Jack, Gwen (Eve Myles – Broadchurch), and their team as they investigate the unusual, the strange, and the extraterrestrial.

The hotly anticipated Torchwood comic sees Captain Jack return to Cardiff to engage the help of the last person who expected to see him again, Gwen Cooper! A dark technology from a forgotten species has been claimed by a conspiratorial power… and in this collision between an ancient civilization and an all-new evil, the Earth itself may be forfeit! Only Jack, Gwen, and their allies from what remains of Torchwood hold the key to stopping a cataclysmic wave of destruction… On the road, on the run, and under fire – can Jack and Gwen put aside their differences and rebuild the heart of Torchwood… before its flame is stamped out forever?!

The debut issue comes with variant covers to collect from Doctor Who superstar artists including Tommy Lee Edwards (Tenth Doctor, Turf), Elena Casagrande (Tenth Doctor, The X-Files), Blair Shedd (Ninth Doctor), and Rod Reis (Doctor Who, C.O.W.L.)!

Retailers can order Torchwood #1 from the May edition of PREVIEWS.  This new series is a must for Torchwood fans, who can find their nearest comic store at ComicShopLocator.com.

Press Release: Bronarr Smashes His Way Through Space Aliens in ‘Strange’ Comics Magazine

Facebooktwitterredditmail

AUSTIN, TX, Aug 5, 2015

16-page preview available: http://bit.ly/1I69MGr

In the tradition of publications like Heavy Metal and 2000AD comes Strange Kids Club Magazine—a self-published comics and humor magazine that provides new and upcoming creators a chance to have their work seen in print while also expanding on the offbeat, irreverently funny universe of Strange Kid, the fictitious blue-haired mascot of Strange Kids Club.

The latest issue, now on Kickstarter, includes four self-contained stories by writers and artists from around the globe and introduces readers to a brand new character, Bronarr: Space Barbarian! Behold as Bronarr blasts, bludgeons, wrestles and wiggles his way through the forces of evil amongst the stars—a hilarious parody of madcap muscleheads like Thundarr the Barbarian and He-Man—in a space misadventure starring Strange Kid and his pals Lando, a smart but relatively normal kid, and Orwell, a chupacabra who only speaks Spanish.

Also featured in this issue:
We Are Pirates (Part 1) by Michael Anderson
While running from a giant monster across the waterless wasteland that is now Earth, the fearless adventurer No-Beard runs into a band of Bounty Hunters looking for a big score. Just so happens No-Beard has a high price for his head, and the bounty hunters know it. But could there be something more sinister that unites this motley crew?

Grayskull Grindhouse: If I Had the Power by Mike LaRiccia
Witness as everyone’s favorite blonde barbarian embarks on a quest of vengeance in this hardcore parody that stars a bloodier, definitely more brutal, cast of men and monsters set out to master the universe. Prepare to go to uncomfortable places—this comic is not for children… or sentimental adults.
