Actress Jamie Lee Curtis to join Titan Comics at San Diego Comic Con, promoting “Mother Earth”, and Doctor Who exclusives, too

Titan Comics and the Titan Entertainment team will be back at San Diego Comic Con for the first time since the pandemic this year – and they’re bringing actress Jamie Lee Curtis with them, to promote her new graphic novel and film, Mother Nature.

You’ll find Titan Entertainment at Booth #5537 of this massive global fan gathering after a four year pandemic-induced absence, for Comic Con 2023.

Among many other reasons to track them down, David Tennant’s upcoming Fourteenth Doctor arrives in San Diego as a pair of separately-packaged, separately-available exclusive 3” TITANS Vinyl Figures.

Both releases – a 3” Kawaii Fourteenth Doctor and 3” Classic Fourteenth Doctor – will be available from Titan Booth #5537.

Don’t miss the opportunity to buy the limited edition TARDIS badges there, either, a special set of merchandise celebrating sixty years of Doctor Who that’s surely one of Titan’s best Time Lord-related collectibles yet, also available from Forbidden Planet online in limited numbers.

“We can’t wait to see you all and we have some amazing exclusives available at our booth,” says Titan’s Andrew Sumner, who will also be hosting several panels at the event.

Andrew Sumner will be hosting five power-packed panels throughout the course of San Diego Comic Con.
