Starkings, Salmon Unleash Cold Blooded War

DoctorWho-CBW-cover_md.jpgIDW has just published standalone Doctor Who story, Cold Blooded War, written by former Doctor Who Magazine comic strip editor Richard Starkings and former Doctor Who Magazine editor Gary Russell.

Drawn by Adrian Salmon, the story is set in the 26th Century first visited by the Third Doctor. The Tenth Doctor and Donna attempt to broker a peace plan between two very hierarchical and pompous alien races, the Draconians and Ice Warriors, but their best efforts are derailed by someone who stands to gain from the continued conflict.

Although Richard’s lettering company, Comicraft, has been busy behind the scenes working on IDW’s Doctor Who range, this is his first foray back into writing Doctor Who comic strip for some years, while Gary Russell’s well known love of the Ice Warriors – they featured heavily in his Radio Times Doctor Who comic – is given fine treatment by Adrian.

• You can view a preview of the new comic, which is only licensed for sale in North America but still makes it to the UK as a ‘grey’ import, here.
