On Wednesday, issue #1 of Doctor Who: The Third Doctor hits comics shelves! I really can’t wait for everyone to see this book. Paul Cornell‘s The Heralds of Destruction is the Third Doctor story that we classic whovians deserve, and I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

If you live in the UK, Paul Cornell will be signing at Forbidden Planet in London from 6pm!

Also, Paul Cornell and I will be at New York Comic Con next month, so that would be a good opportunity to get your books signed by both of us. And I will be at Chicago TARDIS in November and will be happy to sign books there too. So be sure to pick up your copies this week even if you can’t make it to one of our signings on Wednesday.
(I expect I’ll be seeing a lot of sketch covers in my future…)

Paul Cornell returns to Doctor Who comics with “The Heralds of Destruction!” When something enormous crashes into Bedfordshire, the Doctor, Jo Grant, and the forces of UNIT under Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart mobilize immediately, only to find themselves in the middle of a pitched battle against a terrifying invader. But the shocking face that awaits their return to base may tip the whole world off its axis! It’s classic third Doctor action as you’ve never seen it before!
