And Then There Were 12…

Comic Heroes - - Feature -

With Peter Ca­paldi poised to make his de­but as the lat­est em­bod­i­ment of the last Time Lord in Au­gust, Ti­tan will be wast­ing no time, adding The Twelfth Doc­tor to their sta­ble in Oc­to­ber. Writ­ten by The Tenth Doc­tor’s Rob­bie Mor­ri­son and drawn by Dave Tay­lor, few de­tails are cur­rently avail­able, al­though two of #1’s five vari­ant cov­ers re­veal that Clara will also be mak­ing her pres­ence felt.

“2014 is Peter Ca­paldi’s year, so ev­ery­one wants to give him the time and space to make the man­tle his own,” says edi­tor Andrew James. “But since ev­ery­one will fall in love with his Doc­tor within about 10 min­utes of the first episode, I’m sure it won’t be long be­fore other Doc­tors ap­pear in our line-up!”

In fact, James re­veals that Ti­tan has plans for some other minis­eries fea­tur­ing sev­eral of The Doc­tor’s past in­car­na­tions. “The trick is find­ing the right talent to match each Doc­tor, and to make sure that we’re not overwhelming read­ers and re­tail­ers by re­leas­ing ev­ery­thing at once,” he ex­plains. “As much as we’d love to have an on­go­ing monthly set in each era, we want to ex­pand the line while still let­ting com­pletest fans pick up ev­ery is­sue – it’s al­ways a del­i­cate

bal­anc­ing act.”
