I managed to come down with some sort of virus this weekend, so while I was still amazingly excited about this news, I couldn’t break it until this morning. (Largely because sitting up was a major feat of strength—guess I was celebrating Festivus a little early!) But now I can tell you that this weekend we got a little teaser for the long-awaited Ninth Doctor comic from Titan Comics! We first told you about this one way back during NYCC, and I’ve been dying to see it ever since. Now we’ve got a few more details: the release date is March 11, 2015 to coincide with the ten-year anniversary of the return of Doctor Who to television (has it really been ten years since Nine first told Rose “Run for your life?”), and it will be a five part series featuring my favorite Doctor/Companions trio: Nine, Rose, and Captain Jack. This one got massive cheers at the Who panels at NYCC, so I know a bunch of Whovians are looking forward to it along with me. More details below the really cool issue #1 cover art by Alice X. Zhang.
