Tenth And Eleventh Doctor Year Two Comics Announced

Titan comics have announced some exciting news for their Doctor Who comic series. Firstly, writer Si Spurrier - known for comics such as 2000 AD and X-Men Legacy - has officially joined the Titan comics team.
Spurrier's first project with the team will be The Eleventh Doctor: Year Two. The summary for the second year of the Eleventh Doctor's adventures reads as follows:
“Charged with a crime he never committed (…or did he?), the Eleventh Doctor is on the run, with a galaxy-worth of nefarious bounty hunters pursuing him through time and space — in an attempt to scalp the last remaining Time Lord! Exhausted, haunted, and determined to clear his name, the Doctor is forced to turn to someone who knows all about busting out of prisons and staying one step ahead of those who’d prefer they were safely locked up…”
The summary and cover art suggest that we will see a welcome return of John Hurt's War Doctor. The first issue is expected to be released early September, but a date is yet to be confirmed.

Meanwhile, the Tenth Doctor is also getting ready for another round of adventures, with The Tenth Doctor: Year Two. The series will continue to be written by Nick Abadzis, along with artists Elena Casagrande and Eleonora Carlini. The fist story of the series is The Singer Not The Song:
Fresh from the Event, the Tenth Doctor and Gabriella Gonzalez are plunged into a harmonious alien world of musical life-forms…But the Doctor and Gabby are walking straight into a war!

Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor: Year Two #1 will be available from 16th September, with five covers to collect: an art cover by Alex Ronald ; a photo cover; a Rachel Smith variant; a Jake variant; and a blank sketch variant.
