Titan Comics Announces 2017 Doctor Who Comics Day

Titan Comics has revealed that its fourth annual Doctor Who Comics Day event will be held on Saturday 2nd September 2017.

The global event, inspired by Titan Comics' Doctor Who range, is set to be bigger than ever before with new comics and collections, merchandise, variant covers, signings, and events across the world at comic shops, bookstores, retail chains, libraries, and on digital platforms.

Last year's event saw readers given the chance to celebrate at over 2000 locations with the release of Supremacy of the Cybermen, a five-part multi-Doctor crossover series commemorating the 50th anniversary of iconic Doctor Who villains the Cybermen. All five comics were released as a collection last month, written by Cavan Scott and George Mann, with art by Ivan Rodriguez, Walter Geovanni, and Alessandro Vitti.

This year's thrilling event will present a story crossing over all four ongoing series (Ninth, Tenth, Eleventh, and Twelfth Doctor comics), kicking off with a super-accessible Alpha issue, drawn by Rachael Stott (Twelfth Doctor), on Doctor Who Comics Day itself.

Chris Thompson, Brand Manager of Titan Comics, said:
“People have been clamouring for information about our next Doctor Who Comics Day for a while, so it’s great to finally reveal the date for this year’s cel-Who-bration!

"With the Doctor returning to screens for his most stunning adventures yet in Season 10, we want to up the ante and make this year’s Doctor Who Comics Day bigger than ever before! So, grab your Sonic Screwdriver and keep your eyes peeled for more details of this year’s special event. Allons-y!”
Fans and retailers can register here to sign up your store or library, or to register for an event kit to host your own reading group event.

Further details on this year's Doctor Who Comics Day will be released soon.
