"The new ongoing series kicks off a new era and a new mission for this much-loved TARDIS team," returning writer Cavan Scott said in a statement. "Along the way they'll encounter old friends and foes as well as startling new faces."
Scott will be joined by artist Adriana Melo when "Doctor Who: The Ninth Doctor" kicks off in April 2016.
Official Press Release
Titan Comics and BBC Worldwide are pleased to announce the ongoing Ninth Doctor comic series.
Titan Comics' hugely popular and critically acclaimed Doctor Who comics line launched the Ninth Doctor in a 5-part mini-series in 2015. Due to the overwhelming popularity of the Ninth Doctor, as played by Christopher Eccleston, the series will now join the Tenth, Eleventh and Twelfth Doctors as a monthly ongoing title.
The Ninth Doctor comic writer, Cavan Scott (Who-ology) will continue to work on the series and says -
"It's absolutely fantastic that the Ninth Doctor is returning for more adventures with Rose and Captain Jack. The new ongoing series kicks off a new era and a new mission for this much-loved TARDIS team. Along the way they'll encounter old friends and foes as well as startling new faces. I've been blown away by the love for Doctor Number Nine that I've seen at comic cons and signings over the last year. It's a real privilege to be continuing the Ninth Doctor's story. It really is the trip of a lifetime."
The first in the brand new Ninth Doctor ongoing story arc will hit shelves in April 2016, with interior art on the opening three-parter by Adriana Melo (Miss Marvel, Spiderman).
