Titan Comics has just revealed its upcoming special issue for Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) 2018 – and it features a first look at the respective comic series starring the Seventh, Tenth, Eleventh, and Thirteenth Doctors!
Ah, but it sounds like the Tenth and Eleventh Doctors’ titles have new creative teams, and it also seems that the Twelfth Doctor comic has been cancelled…
FCBD happens on Saturday 5th May 2018, with participating stores giving away specially-printed issues, including titles from all the major publishers. This year’s Doctor Who one from Titan promises “the first chapter in the new Tenth and Eleventh Doctor sagas, by new creative teams too electrifying to spoil here, plus tantalizing glimpses from across the Doctor Who comics universe, including your first look at the Thirteenth Doctor in comics!”
As a FCBD title, this is a great jumping-on point. Here’s what to expect:
- CATCH A FALLING STAR: Artist and dreamer, Gabby Gonzalez has long travelled with the Tenth Doctor, but her latest adventure may be her last – unless the Doctor can break every law of time!
- THE ARMAGEDDON GAMBIT: The Seventh Doctor and Ace test their mettle against a planetary invasion; leads into the new Seventh Doctor series, Operation Volcano” launching in June.
- MIDNIGHT FEAST: The Eleventh Doctor follows his Time Lord tastebuds into an all-night diner, for madcap meals and unorthodox diplomacy.
- Plus: A complete reader’s guide to the Doctor Who comics collections! And the first appearance in Titan Comics by the Thirteenth Doctor, written and drawn by her new creative team!
But how do you get your greasy mitts on a copy?!
Check out this Store Locator, which should tell you the nearest participating store.
And if there’s nowhere nearby, you’ll have to either search on eBay or spend over a certain amount at Forbidden Planet International to get one of two bundles! Pack B includes Titan’s Doctor Who issue, alongside a Pokemon special, and Adventure Time issue.
To reiterate, for free comic book goodness, be ready for Saturday 5th May 2018!
