Titan Comics are to bring fans their first ‘Doctor Who’ comics crossover with a story that will feature the 10th, 11th and 12th Doctor Who.
The UK based comics company, which took over the ‘Doctor Who’ license from IDW last year have announced that this crossover will begin in the summer and will last for five weeks.
The good news doesn’t end there though because it has been revealed that the story is to be written by longtime Doctor Who fan Paul Cornell, who is a well known name to ‘Doctor Who’ and comic book fans.
The storyline is expected to begin some time in August and will run in a weekly format until the tail end of September.
Details about the storyline — and the identity of the artist for the event — are being kept under wraps for now, but the presence of Cornell as writer is something that is sure to appeal to many Who fans by itself; in addition to having written for the show since its 2005 revival (Both the first season’s “Father’s Day” and the “Human Nature”/“Family of Blood” two-parter in season three were his work), Cornell has also written for the franchise in both prose and comic book spin-offs, including the Hugo Award-nominated The Girl Who Loved Doctor Who. Most recently, his work appeared in Marvel Entertainment’s Wolverine series, setting up last year’s “Death of Wolverine” event.
