Clearly not content with just having its anthology Doctor Who Comic on sale in UK newsagents, Titan Comics has just released a 76-page Who special, Tales From the TARDIS, a US format title that leads with the company’s Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor #16 tale released in comic shops this week. (I’m told Issue Two will be out on 14th January).
A jolly tale with a host of guest stars (no spoilers!), in “Relative Dimensions” the Doctor receives an impossible Christmas card, delivered direct to the TARDIS — the cue for an extra-sized adventure of unbelievably festive proportions.
Written by George Mann and Cavan Scott, the 28 page story features terrific art by Mariano Laclaustra is a delight to read, with lots of lovely nods to Doctor Who past an present – including the villain of the piece.
• Tales From The Tardis: Doctor Who #1 is available in WH Smith and selected newsagents price £3.99, or you can order it online here
