Just in case the upcoming season of BBC America’s Doctor Who doesn’t bring enough Time Lord action, Titan Comics hopes to fill the void with a few more adventures for Peter Capaldi’s 12th Doctor.

The company has announced plans for Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor to debut in October, a new series that will join the upcoming Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor and Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor series set to go live next month. So, regardless of which Doctor you love, there should still be some good reading materials.

The 12th Doctor’s series will be written by 2000AD alum Robbie Morrison, with art by Dave Taylor, who has worked for Marvel, DC and 2000AD throughout his career. The main cover for the launch issue will be painted by Alice X. Zhang, who also put together the stunning covers for the other two series.

Considering the fact that we still don’t know what our favorite Time Lord will be up to once the new season returns this August, the studio is keeping the comic storyline under wraps.

But, according to The Hollywood Reporter, the official announcement promises “shocks, surprises and timestream-shaking revelations” and describes Capaldi’s Doc as “No frills, no scarf, no messing, just 100 percent rebel Time Lord.” Hmm, we dig it.

Check out the cover below, and let us know what you want to see from Capaldi’s Doctor:
