The cover is an homage to the inside cover of 1986’s “The Queen Is Dead” album by Morrissey’s former band, The Smiths, featuring the Tenth Doctor (played on TV by David Tennant) in front of the Salford Lads’ Club in Greater Manchester. Additionally, the Doctor is holding gladioli, which Moz was known to swing about on stage in that era.
Myers has previously homaged Blondie’s “Parallel Lines” and David Bowie’s “Heroes” in past “Doctor Who” variant covers. The Morrissey-inspired “Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor” #2.6 variant will be available only from AOD Collectables, starting on Feb. 3.
