People just can’t get enough of the Ninth Doctor (Christopher Eccleston for those who lost count.) A five issue mini series from Titan was such a hit that he’s getting an ongoing series starting in April written by Cravan Scott (writer of the previous series) with art by Adriana Melo, for the first three issues.
“It’s absolutely fantastic that the Ninth Doctor is returning for more adventures with Rose and Captain Jacl,’ Cravan said in a statement. “The new ongoing series kicks off a new era and a new mission for this much-loved TARDIS team. Along the way they’ll encounter old friends and foes as well as startling new faces. I’ve been blown away by the love for Doctor Number Nine that I’ve seen at comic cons and signings over the last year. It’s a real privilege to be continuing the Ninth Doctor’s story. It really is the trip of a lifetime.”
Doctor Who #9 joins the Tenth, Eleventh and Twelfth Doctors as a monthly ongoing title. Art above is from the previously published mini-series.
