BBC Worldwide North America and Titan Comics have revealed details for their summer special Doctor Who event comic, Supremacy of the Cybermen. The event will feature five different doctors, the Ninth, Tenth, Eleventh, and Twelfth Doctors from Titan’s four ongoing Doctor Who series. They will be accompanied by their comic companions, Gabby, Cindy, Alice, Rose, and Captain Jack. The spectacular five-part, bi-weekly adventure will feature one of the Doctor’s most iconic foes, the Cybermen.
The story will be penned by George Mann and Cavan Scott with art by Alessandro Vitti. The event comic kicks-off in stores and on digital platforms Wednesday, July 6th and supported by Titan’s third annual Doctor Who Comics Day on Saturday July 9th.
The Cybermen being the main foes celebrates the show’s iconic cyborgs 50th anniversary. They first appeared in the serial The Tenth Planet in 1966 and have been featured numerous times including ‘Rise of the Cybermen and ‘The Age of Steel.’
The last of the Cybermen have captured Rassilon, the fallen leader of the Time Lords. With his capture the Cybermen have gained access to time travel. With this new tool, every defeat becomes a victory. Every foe is now dead – or Cyberized.
The debut issue will feature five variant covers from Alessandro Vitti, Will Brooks, Fabio Listrani, a blank sketch variant, and a fun coloring book variant by Mariano Laclaustra.
