Christopher Eccleston’s Ninth Doctor is about to set off on his own new timey-wimey comic book adventures this month thanks to Titan Comics, and we have a look at three new variant covers for the first issue. The first two covers are for BuyMeToys.com and are by artist Casey Heying, with Admira Wijava doing the colors for the first one and Andrew Hibner for cover number two. The third is from artist Joe Carroney and will be made exclusive to BAM! (Books a Million).
The new miniseries is titled “Weapons of Past Destruction” and will feature the Ninth Doctor and his companions Rose Tyler (Billie Piper) and Captain Jack Harkness (John Barrowman). The series is penned by Cavan Scott. Check out the synopsis:
The Ninth Doctor is BACK with a brand-new miniseries: WEAPONS OF PAST DESTRUCTION!
Leaving World War II behind, The Ninth Doctor, Rose and Captain Jack discover that Time Lord technology, lost in the wake of the Time War, is being sold on the intergalactic black market!
Now the threat of a NEW temporal war brews on the horizon. Can the Doctor stop history repeating itself?
This story sounds like a lot of fun to us. Everything that has to do with the Time Lords and the Time War, we're always in! Here’s what Cavan Scott said about the Ninth Doctor’s upcoming, brand-new adventures:
“The Ninth Doctor in space. A lot. In the 2005 series, the majority of his stories were earth-bound or set on space stations. When I started discussing the series with editor Andrew James, we decided early on that we wanted the mini-series to feel cosmic.”
