Since 2008, IDW has held the North American rights to publish Doctor Who comics, but 2014 will kick off a new era for the comic book version of the Doctor as the BBC just announced a new deal with Titan Comics. From the press release:
In the universe of Doctor Who regenerations bring not only a new Doctor but often a fresh look and feel to the series and BBC Worldwide is bringing that same approach to Doctor Who comics as it signs a new deal with Titan Comics. The deal will open up the world of Doctor Who and provide fans with new stand alone adventures featuring the Tenth Doctor, Eleventh Doctor and after the new series launch, the Twelfth Doctor.
Unlike IDW, which is based out of the colonies, Titan is a British company, so, unlike other Robin Hoods, they can speak with a British accent. They also may actually be able to publish Doctor Who comics in, ya know, Britain. Titan Books, an independently owned global publishing behemoth that focuses mostly on film and TV adaptations/tie-ins and reference books, launched the Titan Comics imprint last summer. Asked for a statement following the announcement, an energized Titan Editorial Director Katy Wild told members of the press:
I'm the best editorial director in the game! When you try me with a sorry ass publisher like IDW, that's the result you gonna get! Don't you ever talk about me!
Yeah, we're gonna be using that one for a while. Creative teams and publishing schedules for the new Doctor Who comics will be released in the next few weeks. Ongoing, neverending, constant, incessant discussion of Doctor Who will continue as normal on Facebook, Twitter, and other social media platforms.
