Torchwood Is Back!

That's right, the Doctor Who spinoff is back, this time in comic form. Titan Comics have announced an all-new Torchwood comic series starring Captain Jack Harkness and Gwen Cooper.

The series is written by John Barrowman (Captain Jack himself) and his sister, Carole E. Barrowman, with issues illustrated by Antonio Fuso (Drive, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest) and Pasquale Qualano (Batman ’66, She Hulk, Harley Quinn). 
The hotly anticipated Torchwood comic sees Captain Jack return to Cardiff to engage the help of the last person who expected to see him again, Gwen Cooper! A dark technology from a forgotten species has been claimed by a conspiratorial power… and in this collision between an ancient civilization and an all-new evil, the Earth itself may be forfeit! Only Jack, Gwen, and their allies from what remains of Torchwood hold the key to stopping a cataclysmic wave of destruction… On the road, on the run, and under fire – can Jack and Gwen put aside their differences and rebuild the heart of Torchwood… before its flame is stamped out forever?! 
The first issue comes with variant covers to collect from artists including Tommy Lee Edwards (Tenth Doctor, Turf), Elena Casagrande (Tenth Doctor, The X-Files), Blair Shedd (Ninth Doctor), and Rod Reis (Doctor Who, C.O.W.L.).


The comic series, will tie in with the new Torchwood audio dramas from Big Finish, will be available in shops from 6th July.
