Doctor Who Comic UK (Credit: Titan) BBC Worldwide and Titan have announced a new UK based Doctor Who Comic will be launched later this month

The comic, featuring the Tenth, Eleventh and Twelfth Doctors in every issue, will be available from 26th February with three on-going stories in the first issue, bringing to the UK the set of stories that have previously not been available in the country. A new issue will be released every four weeks

Join the Tenth Doctor as he deals with the aftermath of Donna Noble’s heart-breaking farewell. The Doctor feels he may never again have another companion, but maybe an adventure with some psychic aliens, a New York laundrette operator and the Mexican Day of the Dead festival can help change his mind.

Then, while Amy and Rory are away, the Eleventh Doctor will play. Experience a time-twisting adventure as he hurtles down a collision course into a terrifying cosmic threat. Can the Doctor save the day once more with a grieving young woman, a 70s’ musician, and an amnesiac alien? Find out in this issue!

Finally, Peter Capaldi’s Twelfth Doctor and Clara Oswald set off on a brand new adventure in the TARDIS. The Doctor is off to his most challenging destination yet. Whether he’s battling a fearsome, millennia-old entity on a freshly-terraformed planet or fighting the forces of an ancient alien, expect shocks, surprises and time-shaking revelations.

Every issue features respected writers and artists, including Eisner Award-winning Nick Abadzis (Laika), fan-favourite Elena Casagrande (Angel, Star Trek), Al Ewing (Loki: Agent of Asgard) and Rob Williams (Trifecta), Simon Fraser (Grindhouse), Eagle award-winning writer Robbie Morrison (The Authority, 2000AD) and Dave Taylor (Batman: Death By Design, 2000AD).

And every issue comes with an original humour strip and competitions. In issue one, readers can win a set of the Tenth, Eleventh and Twelfth Doctor Vinyl figures. The first issue will also feature an exclusive code to download comic strip characters into the Doctor Who Legacy free-to-play game.

Nicholas Brett, Director of UK Publishing, BBC Worldwide, said:
