If you are a fan of Doctor Who and you live in the United States, I have some news that may excite you. IDW have decided to launch a series of Doctor Who comics featuring the travels of the Eleventh Doctor, Rory and Amy.
The comics will launch in January 2011 and issue 1, which will be written by Tony Lee, will see the Doctor and his companions, Amy Pond and Rory Williams off on their time travelling adventures. The art in the first comic comes courtesy of Andrew Curry, with cover art designed by Tommy Lee Edwards.
IDW's Doctor Who editor Denton J. Tipton had this to say:
Storylines for the new book include holographic spam fighting, Mad Max-esque mercenaries, Victorian Jack The Ripper suspense, penalty shoot-outs against Vikings and Cybernetic Space Pirate Dinosaurs. There's going to be something for everyone. For example, fans of the classic series should be on the look out for a classic Doctor Who villain! I could tell you who they are, but I'd have to kill you," adds Lee. "Let's just say we've been given special dispensation to use them, and we have a killer story – in all senses of the word!The comics are priced at $3.99 but as of yet there are no plans for a UK release.
