Coming later this year for Doctor Who fans: The History Between Us, a charity zine chronicling The Doctor and The Master’s adventures through time and space and heartbreak, exploring the rage and pain and far, far beyond – all through the lens of a very grudging couple’s therapy session!
The 77 Years Team, the group behind the project administered by industrious writer, producer Who Knew? Podcast host and zine-maker Katherine Wheeler, have just revealed the striking cover for the project, by Rougerigatoni, which will feature a huge range of contributions solicited through social media. They received over a hundred before solicitations closed.
Featuring fights and confessions across space-time, love and hatred through the ages, and… couple’s therapy… You won’t want to miss this.
Proceeds from the sale of this Doctor Who-inspired zine, due for release this autumn in time for the show’s 60th anniversary, will all be going to Micro Rainbow, a charity providing safe housing for LGBTQ+ refugees in the UK.
This isn’t the team’s first charity zine, previous releases raising substantial amounts for charity, and the standard of art on previous releases looks terrific, so I think it’s well worth keeping an eye on this project.
