Titan Comics Announces their 2017 Doctor Who Comics Day, Rachael Stott on art for crossover comic

2017 Doctor Who Comics Day

With Peter Capaldi’s Twelfth Doctor vworping back onto our screens here in the UK on Saturday 15th April (and to BBC AMERICA in the US and Space in Canada on the same day), fans get a chance to continue their celebration of all things Doctor Who with Titan Comics’ Doctor Who Comics Day on Saturday 2nd September 2017.

Doctor Who Comics Day is a global event inspired by Titan Comics’ Doctor Who comic books. This is the fourth such annual event, set to be bigger than ever before with new comics and collections, merchandise, variant covers, signings, and events across the world at comic shops, bookstores, retail chains, libraries, and on digital platforms. Fans can even register for an event kit to hold their own reading group parties.

Last year’s event tied in with the release of the brand-new, five-part Doctor Who comics and Supremacy of the Cybermen series crossover, in celebration of the Cybermen’s 50th anniversary.

Released last month as a collection, written by superstar Doctor Who comics writers Cavan Scott and George Mann, with art by Ivan Rodriguez, Walter Geovanni, and Alessandro Vitti, this release gave readers the chance to celebrate Doctor Who Comics Day at over 2000 locations.

This year’s thrilling event will present a story crossing over all four ongoing series (Ninth, Tenth, Eleventh, and Twelfth Doctor comics), kicking off with a super-accessible Alpha issue, drawn by Rachael Stott (Twelfth Doctor), on Doctor Who Comics Day itself.

Join in the global excitement with the Alpha issue – and look out for more thrilling details about the story and the creative teams to be revealed in the coming weeks.

“People have been clamouring for information about our next Doctor Who Comics Day for a while, so it’s great to finally reveal the date for this year’s cel-Who-bration!” said Titan Comics’ Brand Manager, Chris Thompson.

“With the Doctor returning to screens for his most stunning adventures yet in Season 10, we want to up the ante and make this year’s Doctor Who Comics Day bigger than ever before! So, grab your Sonic Screwdriver and keep your eyes peeled for more details of this year’s special event.

“Allons-y!”

More details about the 2017 Doctor Who Comics Day event will be released soon.
