Titan Comics Announces an Eighth Doctor Miniseries!

0
Were you huddled around various screens (computer, tablet, phone) this weekend like I was, friends? Of course you were. It was SDCC, and those of us not lucky enough to be in Hall H had to get our news wherever we could. There was lots of great Whovian news this weekend (did you see that Season 9 trailer?) and despite everything I retweeted, not all of it involved rockstar god among men genius Peter Capaldi. I know, shocking.
Waaaaaay back at NYCC last fall, Titan Comics announced that in addition to their Tenth, Eleventh, and Twelfth Doctor series, they would be launching miniseries featuring various incarnations of the Doctor, first up an Eighth Doctor Miniseries. SDCC was the logical time to announce their next miniseries, and Titan did just that: this fall, the Eighth Doctor takes the stage! Eight has had the least screen time of any of the Doctors (that’s just screen time, I’m not counting the Big Finish productions), so I’m really looking forward to seeing what adventures he’ll go on. The Ninth Doctor series has been a delight for this Whovian, and I have the utmost faith that the Eighth Doctor series is going to be just as great. Details (and cover images!) below.

Julie Hegner has been descending the geek rabbit hole since she watched her first episode of Star Trek at age eight. 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.
