British Comic Shop Comic Releases (8th October 2014) – Doctor Who, and Wytches, too!

Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor Issue 3 - Cover A

 

Here’s a list of comics – both US and UK releases – on sale in specialist UK comic shops from today, Wednesday 8th October 2014, courtesy of First Age Comics, Lancaster. We’ve picked out the titles published by British publishers in bold below, or titles with a British connection we’re aware of.

The third issue of Titan Comics Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor series, written by Nick Abadzis with art by Elena Casagrande, is on sale today, completing its first story arc that introduced a new companion. Torn between the homeworld of vicious psychic parasites, and the worsening chaos in Sunset Park, the Doctor must battle through his worst nightmares in order to save the lives of everyone in New York – and the world! His sole ally, if she’s strong enough to withstand the aliens’ psychic predations? Gabriella Gonzalez.

With the help of a trusty Sonic Screwdriver and a frustrated Mexican-American artist, trapped in her father’s Laundromat… can the Doctor defeat the ultimate bad spirits? And what will be left of Gabby’s corner of the world if she and the Doctor succeed?

 

2000AD Prog 1902

 

2000AD Prog 1902 – also on sale in newsagents and online – features “Judge Dredd: Block Judge” by John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra, with Dredd and his Judges realising it’s harder wort than they thought looking after Gramercy Heights. Plus: “Stickleback: The Thru’Penny Opera” – by Ian Edginton and D’Israeli; “Greysuit: Prince Of Darkness” by Pat Mills and John Higgins; “The Grievous Journey of Ichabod Azrael (and the dead left in his wake): One Last Bullet” by Rob Williams and Michael Dowling; and “Kingdom: Aux Drift” by Dan Abnett and Richard Elson.

Titan Comics have also released The Rage Volume One by Pierre Boisserie and Malo Kerfriden. A new pandemic virus, a mutated form of rabies, spreads throughout the world. It affects only children, turning them into mindless, violent killers, hungry for blood. Now humanity faces an impossible choice: kill every child – or face extinction… The government tries to save those infected by keeping them locked away until a treatment becomes possible. The government men find protecting the children more and more difficult, however, for large militia groups now roam the land – with a single-minded purpose: to kill all the infected, and cleanse the world of the virus. Meet Amina; a young mother battling to save her son – but she finds not only their lives hanging in the balance, but her humanity, and that of everyone around her, too.

Image Comics releases a bumper Wytches #1 today, written by Scott Snyder with 30 pages of art by Jock. Across the globe, century after century, men and women were burned, drowned, hanged, tortured, imprisoned, persecuted, and murdered for witchcraft. None of them were witches. They died protecting a terrible and hidden truth: witches, real witches, are out there. They are ancient, elusive, and deadly creatures that are rarely seen and even more rarely survived…

Don’t forget The Beano is also on sale in newsagents and there are new issues of Commando on sale tomorrow!
