Following the success of the Tenth and Thirteenth Doctor crossover series, Titan Comics is bringing Doctor Who fans another crossover. This time, you’ll see the Eighth Doctor and the Eleventh Doctor team up… plus, Rose Tyler returns!
The special comics event is titled Empire of the Wolf. Here’s the official description of the series from Titan Comics:
Trapped in a parallel universe, Rose Tyler believed her adventures with the Doctor were over. Now, pulled by a mysterious energy into this reality, she must work with two Doctors to end the tyrannical rule of the warmongering BAD WOLF EMPRESS!
So, why do a comic series with these two Doctors? (Besides the fact that fans love multi-Doc team ups?) Well, it’s their anniversaries! 2021 marks the 25th anniversary of Paul McGann’s Eighth Doctor, as well as the 11th anniversary of Matt Smith’s Eleventh Doctor.
Empire of the Wolf comes from the critically acclaimed creative team behind other Doctor Who comics: Eisner-nominated writer Jody Houser (Stranger Things, Spider-Man); illustrator Roberta Ingranata (Witchblade); and colorist Enrica Eren Angiolini (Warhammer 40,000). The trio previously worked on the excellent Doctor Who: Missy comics.
“It’s always a blast to get to dig deeper into elements of the Whoniverse that we’ve only seen a bit of or haven’t seen in a while. It’s such an expansive playground to explore and tinker with,” said Houser.
Empire of the Wolf #1 will debut with four variant covers by David Busian, Abigail Harding, and Christopher Jones. But we can actually only show you three covers fully, because one features a brand-new character from Doctor Who’s upcoming 13th season!
Doctor Who: Empire of the Wolf hits stores and digital release on November 3.
So, are you excited to see the Eighth and Eleventh Doctors team up? How about for the return of Rose? Want to speculate about the mystery character from series 13? Drop your comments below!
