Get ready for an epic new Tenth Doctor story! Titan Comics will drop a Doctor Who special release this April. And now, we’ve got a new look at the first cover!
The upcoming story features David Tennant’s Doctor and companion Martha Jones, portrayed by Freema Agyeman in the Doctor Who TV series. In the upcoming comic, Martha ends up captured by the insatiable Pyromeths. Her only hope for survival is to keep them distracted with sensational untold tales of the Tenth Doctor facing off against his greatest foes – both classic and new!
Today Titan Comics revealed the official artwork for the special’s cover A, drawn by Adam Hughes. You can check out the originally released promo art and the newly revealed cover by Hughes below.
Hughes’ cover features Martha and the Tenth Doctor making heart signs with their fingers. The TARDIS floats behind them in a bright pink swirl of energy.
The upcoming release comes from Eisner Award-winning writer Dan Slott. Slott is known for his critically acclaimed work on Marvel Comics like The Amazing Spider-Man, She-Hulk, Tony Stark: Iron Man, The Mighty Avengers, and Fantastic Four. He’s also a self-described huge fan of Doctor Who.
“One of the worst secrets in comics is that I am one of the world’s biggest Whovians!” said Slott. “I’ve been regularly watching Doctor Who since the Tom Baker years, and am deeply devoted to every incarnation of the show! I’ve been waiting to write stories for the Doctor my whole life! And I couldn’t be happier than getting a chance to tell an all-new tale of the Tenth Doctor – and to be doing this with Chris and all the fine folks at TITAN! Allons-Y!”
Slott will team up with fan-favorite artist Christopher Jones for the April special. Jones previously worked on The Third Doctor – Heralds Of Destruction and The Seventh Doctor – Operation Volcano.
The Doctor Who 2022 Special will release in April. Until then, check back to THS for more updates.
