Think Spring, Whovians! Titan’s May/June Doctor Who Lineup is Here!

0

It’s February 16 (Christopher Eccleston’s 51st birthday, just in case you didn’t know), the temperatures are cold enough to give an Ice Warrior pause, and the East Coast is supposed to get more snow this evening (I’m sorry, Boston and Portland–I’m so, so sorry). But in my email inbox there was a little taste of spring from the nice folks at Titan Comics, who are giving us every New Who Doctor in comic form in May and June. And if that doesn’t make your heart sing a bit, try envisioning K-9 frolicking in a field of flowers. That should do it.

Here’s what springtime is bringing us:

A longtime fan of Trek, Who, X-Files, and the Whedonverse, it was only a matter of time until hanging out with other geek girls and repeatedly watching Tom Hiddleston led her to the awesomeness of comics. She takes a special joy in reading about ladies who kick ass, but in general anything with a good storyline floats her boat. You can tweet @julz91 on Twitter.
