When Doctor Who made its triumphant return to television screens in 2005, with Christopher Eccleston in the role of the ninth Doctor, no-one could have guaranteed that the show would still be a hit ten years later, on to its own fourth (or fifth) incarnation of its hero. Yet Doctor Who endures, and with it comes the comic book spin-offs from Titan Comics that explore and expand the stories of the ninth, tenth, eleventh, and twelfth Doctors.
Writer Cavan Scott is the man behind the Ecclestone Doctor's comic book adventures, joined by artist Blair Shedd for a five-issue mini series that launched last month. Scott has agreed to exclusively share his writer's commentary for the series with ComicsAlliance, so we kick off with his notes for issue #1, with the introduction of the Lect and the Doctor's encounter with the Unon. Grab your copy of Doctor Who: The Ninth Doctor #1 and read along!
I am by no means an expert on the Japanese language, but I have played enough video games about people punching each other to know that a dude named "Akuma" is pretty much always going to be bad news. Alas, it seems that no one told that to the cast of Jean-François Di Giorgio and Frédéric Genet's Samurai, which has led to a whole lot of the kind of trouble that can only be solved by slashing things up with swords.
But their loss is certainly our gain --- Di Giorgio and Genet's Samurai is coming back into print this September courtesy of Titan, and if the preview pages are anything to go by, it's going to be pretty fantastic. Have a look for yourself!
Titan is serving up an all-new comic full of robot punching (and occasional cyborg punching) from writer/artist André Lima Araújo. It's called Man Plus, and at its heart, it's a crime story... where the crime is robots punching people to death. If you're not already all in, check out a preview below!
2015 is truly the year James Spader took over all media.
Not only is the laconic actor portraying the title villain in Avengers: Age of Ultron, he's also making the jump from the screen to the page in Titan Comics' new comics series based on his TV show The Blacklist. The new series, by writer Nicole Phillips and artist Beni Lobel, will start up in July. Alice X. Zhang provides the covers.
Ten years before artist Jamie Hewlett became a global pop culture phenomenon as the co-creator of Gorillaz alongside Damon Albarn, he made his other best-known cultural contribution in the late 80s with writer Alan Martin; Tank Girl. Debuting in the pages of UK anthology magazine Deadline, the rocket launcher-wielding, tank-driving outlaw became an icon of female empowerment and sexual self-determination (and the star of a Lori Petty movie of appropriately debatable virtue).
Tank Girl was largely dormant from the mid-90s until the late 2000s, when Martin returned to the character by partnering with artists including Rufus Dayglo, Jim Mahfood, and Warwick Caldwell-Johnson. Hewlett's musical commitments kept him away from the character for a long time, but now he's finally back for 21st Century Tank Girl, an anthology that also features Mahfood, Caldwell-Johnson, Philip Bond, Jonathan Edwards, and more.
As a Briton living overseas, I am always delighted to see people from the old country shamelessly milk their Britishness to sell themselves abroad. The more we ham it up, the more people seem to love it, as evidenced by Eddie Redmayne's Oscar win. So it's in that same glorious spirit that Titan Comics is playing up the "Downton Abbey and crumpets" angle for its May comics promotion, Best of British, featuring new and classic works from a roster of creators that includes Peter Milligan, Si Spurrier, Alan Martin, D'Israeli, and the late Brett Ewins. Check out the trailer above, debuting exclusively on ComicsAlliance.
A new Doctor is taking over the TARDIS, and a new publisher is soon to start publishing Doctor Who comics.
IDW Publishing has held the license since 2008, and over the past six years the publisher has released an array of comics based on the new Doctor Who series, along with reprints of classic BBC Doctor Who comic strips. But the mantle has officially passed to Titan Comics -- the comics arm of Titan Books -- that will release stories based on the tenth, eleventh and twelfth Doctors this year.
