Doctor Who Comic Coming

All-New Doctor Who Steers his Tardis Toward the States

IDW Publishing to debut first-ever comic book series written
exclusively for the American market, starring the Tenth Doctor from the
BBC’s new smash-hit series

San Diego, CA (December 4, 2007)-He’s traveled through time and across
the known universe. And yet, despite decades of popularity, he’s never
journeyed across the pond to debut his own new series in the United
States.

Next month, however, IDW Publishing will change all that, as Doctor
Who’s TARDIS lands on American shores for his first-ever U.S.
miniseries, starring the fan-favorite Tenth Doctor from the BBC’s new
smash-hit TV series.

Featuring all-new adventures written by Doctor Who story editor Gary
Russell of the award-winning show, the comics will introduce American
readers to the sci-fi series that has been wowing British audience for
nearly 35 years.

“Doctor Who is finally coming to comics over here,” says Chris Ryall,
IDW publisher and editor-in-chief. “These are the first Doctor Who
comics in the United States in three decades, and the first ever created
just for the American market.”

Each issue-a stand-alone story just like a TV episode-will also have
elements that carry over throughout the series. Along with his loyal
friend and companion Martha Jones of London, the Doctor faces down
threats to stop darkness and evil from spreading throughout the
cosmos-and, while they’re at it, they also hunt for the galaxy’s best
chocolate milkshakes. Unknown to them, however, forces have set their
sights on the good Doctor: As the last of the Time Lords, he is, after
all, highly collectible to the right people.

Accompanying Russell on the creative team is a creative team consisting
of artist Nick Roche of Transformers fame, Josep Maria Beroy, Stefano
Martino, and more, with Roche supplying covers for each issue.
