Later this year, Titan Comics are due to start publishing Andrew Cartmel‘s new Doctor Who comic series! Featuring the Seventh Doctor, OPERATION VOLCANO is sure to please fans of the TV series. Ben Aaronovitch will also be helping out with the series which, as io9 pointed out in their exclusive cover reveal, is somewhat fitting: both Cartmel and Aaronovitch have a long history with the Seventh Doctor — Cartmel was a showrunner during Sylvester McCoy’s tenure as the Doctor, and Aaronovitch wrote REMEMBRANCE OF THE DALEKS and also BREATHE. Series art will be by Christopher Jones, with colours by Marco Lesko. There is no official synopsis, yet, but here’s a series description, from the BBC’s Doctor Who website:
‘In Titan Comics’ new mini-series, an unknown alien intelligence is in orbit around the Earth. Astronauts under attack. A terrifying, mysterious landing in the Australian interior. The future of the world itself at stake. Counter Measures activated. The Seventh Doctor and Ace are slap bang in the middle of it all! This is OPERATION VOLCANO!’
The three-part OPERATION VOLCANO is expected to begin arriving in stores in June 2018, starting with a bumper-sized issue. We are certainly excited about reading more Seventh Doctor, timey-wimey sci-fi adventures!
