Titan Adds Another Doctor Who Title
To go along with their comic series featuring the Tenth Doctor, the Eleventh Doctor, and now the Twelfth Doctor, Titan Comics has announced a five-issue Doctor Who: The Ninth Doctor miniseries.
The Ninth Doctor, played by Christopher Eccleston, is the one who returned Doctor Who to television ten years ago. The comic will be available on March 11 at a cover price of $3.99 US and can be pre-ordered from your local comic shop with Diamond code JAN15 1599. Typically, there are also alternate covers: one by the internal artist and a couple of photo options.
It’s written by Cavan Scott and illustrated by Blair Shedd. Promised to appear are favorite characters Rose and Captain Jack. This is one instance where the comics can provide something the show can’t, since Eccleston hasn’t participated in various anniversary efforts in the past. The miniseries, titled “Weapons of Past Destruction”, is described as follows:
Leaving World War II behind, The Ninth Doctor, Rose and Captain Jack discover that Time Lord technology, lost in the wake of the Time War, is being sold on the intergalactic black market! Now the threat of a NEW temporal war brews on the horizon. Can the Doctor stop history repeating itself?
