Titan Comics revealed a first look at their upcoming Doctor Who Time Lord Victorious story.
The story is written by Jody Houser with art by Roberta Ingranata and is one of two oversized issues that kicks off The BBC’s multiplatform Doctor Who story, Time Lord Victorious.
The BBC announced their Time Lord Victorious series back in April stating that the series takes place during the “Dark Times at the start of the universe, when even the Eternals were young.”
It will follow “several Doctors across space and time as they defend their home planet from a terrible race.”
The Doctors expected to feature in the storyline include the Eighth, Ninth, and Tenth Doctors. Companion Rose Tyler will also be featured. They also revealed that the Daleks and the Ood would be part of the storyline.
The story will be told across various different mediums, publishers, and platforms.
Some of those publishers include Penguin Random House, Doctor Who Magazine, Titan Comics, Escape Hunt, Big Finish Productions, Eaglemoss Hero Collector, Immersive Everywhere, Maze Theory, BBC Books, and BBC Audio.
Doctor Who producer James Gross discussed the initiative saying, “BBC Studios’ Doctor Who licensees have come together to tell an amazing epic – one that’s full of monsters, fun and heart.”
He added, “All strands of the story unite into a mighty patchwork that ranges from one end of the universe to the next.”
Gross concluded, “There’s more to be revealed, but the enthusiasm and ideas which the licensees have come up with are breath-taking. It’s going to be such fun.”
This first comic from Titan Comics sees the Tenth Doctor face off against the Daleks.
Here’s the official description:
“A thrilling new adventure for the Tenth Doctor (as played by fan-favorite David Tennant) that sees the shocking return of his deadliest enemies: the Daleks! But things aren’t what they seem – time is all wrong, and something is coming that terrifies even the Daleks… The first of two oversized issues kicking off the BBC’s highly anticipated multi-platform Doctor Who epic, Time Lord Victorious!”
The first issue features a main cover by Lee Binding. It will also feature variant covers by Priscilla Petraites, Andie Tong, and Hendry Prasetya.
