Artist David Roach has again provided the cover for the next Panini Doctor Who comics collection, The Clockwise War, a fantastic illustration to close off the Twelfth Doctor’s adventures in Doctor Who Magazine.
Written by by Scott Gray with art by John Ross, the story wraps many trailing threads from previous Twelfth Doctor stories into one rip-roaring, powerful adventure that includes a cameo by a young-looking War Doctor.
This collection also includes classic tales of the First, Fourth and Fifth Doctors – as played on televison by William Hartnell, Tom Baker and Peter Davison – from the long-running comic strip in the official Doctor Who Magazine and the Doctor Who Yearbooks.
• The Clockwise War goes on sale 22nd April and will be available in all good book and comic shops – pre-order it here on Amazon (affiliate link)
