This Wednesday’s issue of Titan’s Twelfth Doctor finds the Scottish Time Lord without his Impossible Girl.
This is the first comic of the title set post-Hell Bent, which saw Clara Oswald sail off into… all of time and space again, but sans the Doctor. Presumably, the comic takes place before The Husbands of River Song; let’s face it, there’s plenty of time to explore between that the Series 9 finale and the Christmas special.
The Doctor may be flying solo – but he’s finding just as much trouble, danger, and cosmic wonder as when Ms. Oswald was around! Will the Twelfth Doctor find a new companion, just for the comics series? The Tenth has Gabby Gonzalez and Cindy Wu, and the Eleventh has Alice Obiefune after all… This is where we find out. All this, and the new Sonic Screwdriver makes its Titan debut!
You’ve got a choice of five fantastic covers: the main is by Steve Pugh, complimented by the photocover by Will Brooks; Todd Nauck provides the third cover, while Robert Hack gives us a wonderfully creepy fourth; the final Album Homage cover is by Simon Myers – and keep your eyes peeled for an exclusive interview with the artist very soon…
This first part of this new storyline welcomes back Mariano Laclaustra, whose work on The Twelfth Doctor #16 at Christmastime was beautiful. And judging from the preview below, he’s delivering similarly stunning visuals.
Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor #2.6 is out on Wednesday 25th May, priced $3.99.
