New Comics On Sale This Week – 2000AD, Doctor Who and Elephantmen!

Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor: Year Two #4

Here’s our latest list of new comics on sale this week, focusing largely on new comics and graphic novels on sale in comic shops and as usual, highlighting those featuring the work of British and Irish creators and British publishers, including 2000AD, which is another cracking issue (Prog 1962, that is, not next week’s which I inadvertently plugged here earlier…).

Over at Titan Comics, the Twelfth Doctor’s “Year Two” has also kicked off to a great start, as I mentioned yesterday. Robbie Morrison and Rachael Stott are working on a year-long arc of stories and this latest tale has all the hallmarks of both classic and modern who rolled into one darn fine package.  Plus, there’s Johnny Red #3 – another great episode from this all-action series.

On the US side, out this week is a collection of Terminal Hero from Dynamic Entertainment, written by 2000AD veteran Peter Milligan with interior art by Piotr Kowalski. A story from one of the comic industry’s most groundbreaking writers, it’s a tale of psychic powers gone awry, and one man’s terrible battle with his own inner demons!

Commando No 4878 – Polish PilotUK Comics – Newsagents Spotlight

As usual, don’t forget that despite some British publishers lack of faith in full-blown cover to cover comic strip action and humour, there are still comics on sale in newsagents that still delight in bringing you such subversive delights, including The Beano, Commando (latest release intel here), Judge Dredd Megazine, Panini’s superhero titles, Titan Comics superhero titles and VIZ, with great strips also featuring in titles such as Doctor Who MagazineDoctor Who Adventures, Titan’s Doctor Who Comic (collecting their strips from the US format titles) MegaTales from the TARDISTOXIC and many others.

Plus, the wonderful Phoenix Comic is now on sale in many (but not all) Waitrose supermarkets and – at last, selected high street WH Smiths stores – and some comic shops (stockist list here) as well as available on subscription.

Draw The Marvel Way #1 - Cover

Draw The Marvel Way – Out now in all good newsagents

Don’t forget Hachette, the British publisher of titles such as Doctor Who: The Complete History and Judge Dredd: The Mega Collection and launches How To Draw The Marvel Way from today, available in all good newsagents.

The part work – evocative of long-established comic creation guides such as How to Draw Comics the Marvel Way, still a handy guide to drawing action comics in my view,  offers a step by step guide on how to learn to draw like the greats of comic book illustration. More about this new title here

Note that you may now have to subscribe if you want to continue buying it as Part Works are not distributed in newsagents after their first few issues.
