Doctor Who, that bloke in a box whose TV series roared back this last decade for a whole new audience of sci-fi fans, will be heading to Titan Comics in 2014. This follows a run of comics published through IDW, and the new deal will see Titan and the BBC working together to produce comics based on the tenth, eleventh, and twelfth Doctors.
That means David Tennant, Matt Smith, and Peter Capaldi, respectively.
The license was expected to pass from IDW this year, although speculation placed the franchise in the hands of any number of other publishers. Titan seem like a smart choice, being one of the strongest publishers with a UK base, and over the next few months it looks as though the company will be announcing creators, titles, and plans for the franchise.
The comics are planned to start in 2014. When I know more – you’ll be the first to hear!
