Titan Comics has revealed that it will be bringing an exclusive Doctor Who comic to this year's San Diego Comic-Con.

The Last Action Figure will feature a new adventure with the Twelfth Doctor and companion Bill Potts, portrayed in the television series by Peter Capaldi and Pearl Mackie respectively.

Written by Richard Dinnick, the Doctor Who Convention Special features art by Mariano Laclaustra, Carlos Cabrera and Nico Selma. The comic also comes with two collectable art covers from Alice X. Zhang, which can be seen below with some of the comic's artwork (click to enlarge):


The Last Action Figure will be available to purchase at the Titan Comics booth (#5537) at SDCC, along with other Doctor Who comics and ranges from the publisher. Titan's booth will also be hosting signings featuring some of the Doctor Who comics creative talent at the following times and dates:

Saturday 22nd July, 11am - Nick Abadzis, George Mann and Cavan Scott
Sunday 23rd July, 1pm - Paul Cornell, Richard Dinnick and Alice X. Zhang

This year's SDCC will also feature a Titan Comics panel revealing future plans for the Doctor Who and Torchwood ranges as well as exclusive art previews from upcoming titles. Taking place on Saturday 22nd July at 3:30pm, the panel will feature writers Nick Abadzis, Richard Dinnick, George Mann, Brian Miller and Cavan Scott alongside editor Andrew James. Fans attending the panel will receive five free comic books.

Titan Comics will not be the only Doctor Who presence at SDCC this year, with BBC America's official Doctor Who panel set to feature some of the show's stars taking a look back at the show's tenth series and offering an exclusive preview of the upcoming Christmas special.

Comic-Con International: San Diego 2017 runs from 20th-23rd July at the San Diego Convention Centre. More information on this year's event can be found at the official Comic-Con site.
