Captain Jack is back! Titan Comics have announced that Doctor Who spinoff Torchwood is back, in an all-new ongoing comic series starring the daring Captain Jack Harkness and Gwen Cooper.
Written by Captain Jack himself – John Barrowman – and Carole E. Barrowman, and with issues illustrated by Antonio Fuso (The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest) and Pasquale Qualano (Batman ’66), the comic books will follow the continuity of Torchwood’s audio dramas from Big Finish, which are part of the official continuation of the Torchwood saga,
The comic arrives in stores on July 6 – the week of Titan’s third annual Doctor Who Comics Day event – Saturday, July 9 2016.
The hotly anticipated Torchwood comic sees Captain Jack return to Cardiff to engage the help of the last person who expected to see him again, Gwen Cooper! A dark technology from a forgotten species has been claimed by a conspiratorial power, and in this collision between an ancient civilization and an all-new evil, the Earth itself may be forfeit! Only Jack, Gwen, and their allies from what remains of Torchwood hold the key to stopping a cataclysmic wave of destruction… On the road, on the run, and under fire – can Jack and Gwen put aside their differences and rebuild the heart of Torchwood… before its flame is stamped out forever!
The debut issue comes with variant covers to collect from Doctor Who superstar artists including Tommy Lee Edwards (Tenth Doctor), Elena Casagrande (Tenth Doctor), Blair Shedd (Ninth Doctor), and Rod Reis (Doctor Who)!
The all-new Torchwood comic arrives in stores on July 6.
