With Jodie Whittaker poised and prepared to take over the keys to the Tardis this fall, Titan Comics and BBC Studios are collaborating to bring fans a brand new comic series to properly introduce the newest Doctor.
The series is titled The Road to the Thirteenth Doctor and is set to make its debut in July. The three-part series will lead the way into an all-new ongoing comic from Titan titled The Thirteenth Doctor which is also expected to make its debut this fall.
Entertainment Weekly exclusively unveiled a first look at the upcoming comics. According to EW, “The Road to the Thirteenth Doctor will chronicle new adventures starring the Tenth, Eleventh, and Twelfth Doctors (who were played on TV by David Tennant, Matt Smith, and Peter Capaldi), written by James Peaty (Supergirl) and featuring covers by Robert Hack (Sabrina, Archie). In the course of the series, the Tenth Doctor encounters lost, ghostly spaceships, the Eleventh Doctor, and Alice visit a robot-infested 19th-century San Francisco, and the Twelfth Doctor finds London’s Piccadilly Circus transformed into a wasteland of emptiness and pterodactyls.”
