Doctor Who – The Fourth Doctor Anthology comics collection cover revealed

Here’s the cover for Panini’s upcoming 300-plus page Doctor Who – The Fourth Doctor Anthology, heading to bookshops on 2nd November 2023 and available to preorder now for just under £30.

When Doctor Who Weekly launched in 1979, it was the inimitable Tom Baker incarnation of the immortal Time Lord who graced its very first comic stories.

Now, Panini Comics is releasing a complete collection of Fourth Doctor comic strips, currently priced at under £30 for the 324-page book, taken from the early years of Doctor Who Weekly and Doctor Who Monthly.

Featuring 16 wild and witty tales by writers such as Pat Mills and John Wagner, and art by Dave Gibbons, this collection sees the Doctor encounter robotic centurions, deceptively furry and cuddly space tyrants, deadly psychic vampires and a whole lot more!

  1. I hope that whoever has the rights can release all the Doctor Who Polystyle comic strip comics that started with The Klepton Parasites in 1964.

  2. So not available from Canadian Amazon – but I can international order apparently from UK.

  3. Given that Paul Neary is not listed in the credits, it might not actually be a completely complete collection. (“Timeslip” from Doctor Who Weekly 17-18)

    • The article in the new Doctor Who Magazine (593), out today, suggests the emphasis is on the main strips of the early incarnations of the publication. There’s no suggestion it includes the back ups, too
