Titan Comics is to launch a new UK-based Doctor Who Comic on 26th February 2015, on sale in all good newsagents and supermarkets every four weeks.

The 84-page comic joins Immediate Media’s Doctor Who Adventures, Panini’s Doctor Who Magazine (and the spin-off, The Essential Doctor Who Magazine) and the Doctor Who Figurine Collection from Eaglemoss on the British news stand. The anthology title will re-present the adventures of the Tenth, Eleventh and Twelfth Doctors in every issue already published in the US but which have had limited distribution in the UK through comic shops.

Issue One features the first stories published Stateside featuring each Doctor featuring the work of Robbie Morrison, Nick Abadzis, Dave Taylor and others.

“We’re delighted that Titan will be bringing fans the Doctor Who Comic ,” commented Nicholas Brett, Director of UK Publishing, BBC Worldwide, “and extending the relationship BBC Worldwide already enjoys with Titan.”
