On Friday night at Meltdown Comics in Hollywood, California, Joss Whedon and “Y: The Last Man” creators Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra celebrated the end of the critically acclaimed, 60-issue epic. And for the first time, artist Guerra teased her next project: IDW Publishing’s “Doctor Who.” CBR News caught up with Guerra at the party to talk about the project.
Fans of CBR’s STUDIO TOURS already know that Guerra is an “insane” fan of the British series. “I used to watch the old Tom Baker episodes with my aunt in Toronto, they played them on TV Ontario,” Guerra said. “And then when the new series came out, I started watching those and fell in love with them. It brought back a lot of cool memories from childhood. And I feel totally blessed to be able to work on this new series, which captures a lot of people’s imaginations.”
Tony Lee is penning the series, and both creators have always shared a love for “Doctor Who.” The seeds of the project were sown at Comic-Con International in San Diego last year in a conversation between Guerra and IDW’s Chris Ryall. “And then I sat on it for 6 months until we got the go ahead, and finally this month BBC has given its blessing. We’re really, really happy about it.” The first issue is scheduled to hit stands in July. And stay tuned to CBR for a full report on “Y: The Last Party.”
