After five years of new ongoing comics with IDW Publications, the license for BBC’s Doctor Who will be heading over to Titan Comics, the even indie-er label known for sci-fi books like A1 and Tank Girl and also officially licensed books featuring Sherlock Holmes and James Bond. The announcement came on Tuesday with the promise of a new rash of one-off adventures with the Tenth and Eleventh Doctors and, once his first series premieres, the Twelfth Doctor, in 2014. The new production team and creative staff are said to be announced in the coming weeks.
The IDW books ended their run with the 2013 Annual by Paul Cornell. Since they began, the series saw work by Tony Lee, Matthew Dow Smith, Gary Russell, Justin Richards, and Jimmy Broxton. During the IDW run, there was also a crossover between Doctor Who and Star Trek: The Next Generation called Assimilation 2, in which the Borg and the Cybermen team up. The jerks.
