Titan's New Torchwood Comic to debut at SDCC 2016

Titan Comics and BBC Worldwide have announced that the brand new Torchwood comic range will launch at this year’s San Diego Comic Con.
Alongside the regular edition Titan will also present a special convention edition of Torchwood which includes the entirety of Torchwood #1 plus extra fan-favorite John Barrowman and Carole E. Barrowman-penned adventure The Selkie, with art and a brand-new cover from comic book legend Tommy Lee Edwards.
Additionally, Captain Jack himself, John Barrowman will be on hand to promote the new series, which will be written by Barrowman and his sister, Carole E. Barrowman.
Both the Barrowman siblings will be on a Torchwood panel on Saturday, July 23 at 3:30PM in room 5AB, where they will discuss their plans for the title, announcements, behind-the-scenes reveals and upcoming plans for the Torchwood comic series. This panel will take place on Saturday July 23 at 3:30PM in room 5AB.
Those in attendance will be able to pick up the title from Titan’s booth # 5537.
Fans will also have the opportunity to meet John Barrowman and Carole E. Barrowman at the show as they will be signing copies of Torchwood #1 on Sunday July 24 between 11:00am and 12:00pm at Autograph Area, Table AA21.
Antonio Fuso and Pasquale Qualano are the artists of the Torchwood comic, which will be in continuity with the Big Finish Torchwood audio dramas. It’s not clear if Rex Matheson, the lone surviving new character from Torchwood: Miracle Day will return, but Captain Jack, Gwen Cooper, and Gwen’s husband, Rhys will all be back together in the comic which deals with some lingering tension between Jack and Gwen.
Fans who can’t make it out to San Diego will be able to pick up Torchwood #1 at comic stores everywhere starting Wednesday, August 3.
