Doctor Who: Supremacy of the Cybermen #1 Marks Doctor Who Comics Day

It’s summer, so once again, Titan Comics has declared their own holiday. Doctor Who Comics Day is July 9. Last year, they put out a weekly crossover series featuring four Doctors. This year, to mark the 50th anniversary of the Cybermen, they’re putting out a five-part series, Doctor Who: Supremacy of the Cybermen, with an issue every two weeks. It stars the Ninth, Tenth, Eleventh, and Twelfth Doctors (plus Rose and Captain Jack) and is written by George Mann and Cavan Scott with art by Alessandro Vitti and Ivan Rodriguez.

The first issue is mostly setup, with the various doctors and their comic companions encountering challenges, until the Cybermen are revealed, once again attempting to take over the universe. It’s relatively standard, the kind of thing expected for a multi-Doctor event, but the cliffhanger is a doozy. Which is a good thing, since we’ve all gotten spoiled, and simply seeing the four modern Doctors in one story is no longer all that special. Typical of these releases, there are seven variant covers.
