Abslom Daak, Dalek Killer continues to haunt the Eleventh Doctor in the upcoming Titan Comics release Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor: Year Two #11, on sale 15th June.
The character pops up on a smashing cover from ace artist Steve Dillon, who first co-created the chainsword wielding nutcase with the late, great Steve Moore for Doctor Who Weekly – and we really think Titan Merchandise whould be banging this on a t-shirt as soon as possible, please.
This is of course, an entirely selfish demand, after one of my beloved Doctor Who Magazine Tenth Anniversary T-shirts featuring another classic Daak image finally disintegrated in the wash, after first being attacked by the house rates many years ago. (And yes, I know the surviving one I have needs ironing, thank you).
The issue also sports some other great variant covers by Dan Boultwood and Simon Myers, who’s also being fun with his music-inspired art over on Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor #11, as we reported earlier.
