    Cool, but I'll only be truly excited when they make comics featuring 9.

    Well...doubt I'll be seeing the books. My LCS orders zero stuff from that company...unless it's by special request. Pretty much anything beyond DC/Dark Horse/Marvel/Image and ICW has to be special ordered.

    While it's nice to think that they'll do stories for Ten and Eleven even after Twelve deubts - hopefully with a nice range of Companions over the stories - it's a shame they can't try and do ones for all of the Doctors. The Classic Series does have a audience and one-shots and minis based off their adventures would be awesome.
    The rule in comics seems to be that unless you're gay, interacial or had the sense to get married in the 60's and have kids before it became out of vogue to marry and grow up, it's not gonna last.

    This is frigging awesome! Of course I will get them all, but to see Tennant as the Doctor again in comic book form makes me beyond frigging happy!

    Seconded! Hoping they get a good amount of Donna in there, I love her and Ten as a crew. And hopefully Amy and Rory for Eleven as well as Clara, maybe even River - it'll be nice to have a mixture of companions.

    They haven't said yet. All they've said is 2014.

    Hopefully this high profile title will bring Titan into more shops.

    It's all in what the retailers order.

    I think the reason many of you have not seen anything from Titan before is because, in the past, they've focused on their native UK. It's kind of unusual that a British company has been given the rights for US comics.

    This is scaring me, no news on any kind of solicitation. This means most likely there are no Doc Who comics until after at least April 2014! Yikes almost half a year (or 'YIKES' more) without new Who comics!?!?!

    More likely May at the earliest; April books have been solicited.
    But this isn't unusual when a license passes from one publisher to another.

    Hopefully these will be good, I loved the IDW run.

    Me too. I have all the Tennant and Smith ones. I need to get some of the classic.
