Cold Day at Marvel UK: Strip by Strip Feature

Doctor Who: A Cold Day in HellAs previously noted, Panini UK has just released A Cold Day in Hell, its first collection of Doctor Who strips featuring the Seventh Doctor, played on TV by Sylvester McCoy, in May 2009.

downthetubes has now published an in-depth ‘strip by strip’ feature based on interviews with most of the strip creators – including Lee Sullivan, John Ridgway, Mike Collins, David Hine and Alan Grant – who worked on the stories featured.

The feature is an extended version of material provided fora back up article published in the collection, and includes comments from writer Simon Furman, who was unable to contribute to the print edition version due to time contsraints.

It also includes material cut for space reason but does not include interview material with the strips’ editor, Richard Starkings — you’ll have to buy the book for that!
