Daleks debut at last in Titan Comics “Doctor Who – Time Lord Victorious” tie-in

Titan Comics has revealed its involvement in BBC Studios multi-platform, transmedia Doctor Who story Time Lord Victorious, launching two over-sized comic issues which will debut on 2nd September 2020.

Available to pre-order now, Doctor Who: Time Lord Victorious #1 is a new comic adventure for the Tenth Doctor. It also sees the return of the Doctor’s most iconic enemy, the Daleks, appearing for the first time in the Titan Comics Doctor Who line.

Available in comic stores and on digital devices at release, Titan’s Doctor Who: Time Lord Victorious #1 comic, written by Eisner-nominated Jody Houser (Stranger Things, Star Wars, Spider-Man) with art by Roberta Ingranata (Witchblade), is part one of a special two-part Tenth Doctor adventure.

When the Doctor faces his ancient foes once again, it soon becomes clear that things aren’t what they seem – time is all wrong and something is coming that terrifies even the Daleks.

“Titan’s comic story is quite unique,” says Jake Devine, Editor, of Titan’s Doctor Who comics, “as it features the Tenth Doctor as seen in the recent Thirteenth Doctor comic series, so he’s not reached his so-called victory over time yet.

“But what has been fun to explore is the Doctor getting a glimpse of what’s to come and foreshadowing his own dark turn.”

Although the Daleks have been mentioned in the Titan Comics Doctor Who comics, and the line has previously featured an appearance by Abslom Daak – Dalek Killer, and Dalek scientists, this is the first time the creatures have appeared in their full glory, Emperor and all.

Previously, Titan had commissioned some test pages featuring the Twelfth Doctor battling Daleks, drawn by Brian Williamson, but that project failed to materialise.

The comic debuts with five covers for fans to collect: an official Time Lord Victorious iconic by artist Lee Binding; art covers by Andie Tong (TEKKEN), Priscilla Petraites (Rat Queens), a Dalek metallic ink version by Hendry Prasetya (Green Lantern) and a Dalek blue line sketch cover.

• Time Lord Victorious #1 ($5.99) is now available to pre-order globally from July’s Diamond Previews catalogue, ForbiddenPlanet.com and on digital device via Comixology
