Titan’s bringing the comedy to Doctor Who with Slorance, Bell, Price, Smith & Ellerby….

Published On November 7, 2014 | By Richard Bruton | Comics, Film TV & Theatre

Titan have three Doctor Who comics right now. But only two of them have comedy strips as back-ups featuring some incredibly talented FPI blog favourite artists, right?

Nope, not true. Not any more. Titan have announced that the back-up strip for Peter Capaldi’s Twelfth Doctor will be by fellow Scots and damn fine makers of Dungeon Fun comics, Colin Bell and Neil Slorance.

This is obviously great news, as Dungeon Fun is a big favourite here and we’re really looking forward to issue 3 due for release at Thought Bubble in a week. The team bring the Twelfth Doctor fun with issue #2, available from November 9th.


According to Bell on the Titan PR:

“To be the men who put the words in the mouth of The Man Who Stops The Monsters is an incredible honor for us both! We’re concerned with what happens in the smaller moments between crises, when the galaxy’s not being saved. Who takes the bins out? Where do they go for lunch? Neil and I hope to answer these questions; and as always, the answers await us… in time! “

Currently the great line-up of back-up artists includes Rachael Smith and Emma Price giving us the adventures of Tennant’s Tenth Doctor, and Marc Ellerby putting his best fez forward with Smith’s Eleventh Doctor. Adding Slorance and Bell is a great move. Titan also mention they have plans for other artists to join in the fun which, based on their choices so far, can only be a good thing.

Here’s the only piece of Neil Slorance Who art that’s floating around…


But how about a little of Elerby’s Smith and Price and Smith’s Tennant?
