Titan Announces New Third Doctor Comic Series

Titan Comics and BBC Worldwide North America have announced a new series of comics starring the Third Doctor.

The five-part comic series - which follows the hugely successful adventures of the Fourth, Eighth, Ninth, Tenth, Eleventh, and Twelfth Doctors - will be penned by writer Paul Cornell (Wolverine, Action Comics, The Severed Streets) and artist Christopher Jones (Young Justice, Marvel’s Avengers).

The series, called The Heralds Of Destruction, will feature the Third Doctor, as played by Jon Pertwee, with companions Jo Grant and Brigadier.
When something enormous and extraterrestrial crashes into Bedfordshire, the Doctor, Jo Grant, and the forces of UNIT under Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart mobilize immediately to investigate – and find themselves in the middle of a pitched battle against a terrifying invader! But the shocking face that awaits their return to base may tip their whole world off its axis.
The first issue comes with five variant covers to collect: three art covers by artists Josh Burns, Simon Myers, and Paul McCaffrey, a photo cover, and a blank sketch cover.

The comic will be available as both print and digital comics from August 2016.
