The Eleventh Doctor will be joined by “a grieving young woman” in a new series of comic book adventures from Titan Comics.
Alice Obiefune has just lost her mother when the Doctor explodes into her life - heralding the start of a stunning new chapter of adventures for Matt Smith’s Doctor. But what does this grieving young woman have to do with the career of a 70s musician, an amnesiac alien, and a terrifying cosmic threat?
In this exclusive sketch from series artist, Simon Fraser, we see Alice depicted as beautiful but stern young woman, complete with hooped earrings, sunglasses and chunky headphones.
There’s also a new companion for the Tenth Doctor, as Eisner Award-winning Nick Abadzis (Laika) and fan-favorite Elena Casagrande (Angel, Suicide Risk, Doctor Who, Star Trek) take control of David Tennant’s TARDIS for their first five-issue arc:
Gabriella Gonzalez is stuck in a dead-end job in her family’s New York Laundromat, dreaming of college and bigger, better and brighter things.
So when a strange man with an even stranger big blue box barges into her life on the eve of the Day of the Dead celebrations – talking about an infestation of psychic aliens – she seizes her chance for adventure with both hands. (x)
