FIRST LOOK: Missy returns for Doctor Who multimedia event, Doom’s Day

April 22nd, 2023 by Marc Comments

You may recall a few weeks back we reported on Doom’s Day, the new multimedia Doctor Who event kicking off later this year to coincide with Doctor Who’s 60th anniversary.

The event will feature Sooz Kempner as Doom, a character who is literally on the run from death and the Doctor is the only ne who can save her… maybe.

Featuring comics, books, audio adventures and probably more, unlike Time Lord Victorious, the previous Doctor Who multimedia event, this one actually will tie into the TV series too with Russell T Davies saying: “Doom’s Day is a huge new adventure for the whole Doctor Who universe – starring the brilliant and hilarious Sooz Kempner as an intergalactic assassin. Her adventures will span comics, audio, a novel, video games stories and more, expanding the world of Doctor Who into brand new territories. Beware the Doom’s Day, it’s coming for us all.”

Now Titan Comics, the longtime publisher of Doctor Who comics and magazines, has thrown its hat in the ring as the first official part of Doom’s Day with a two-issue comic series launching on July 5th, 2023, as part of the Doctor Who multi-platform story Doom’s Day.

But the most exciting part? The comic adventure will feature the return of Missy!

Full details are below. Will you be joining in Doom’s adventure? Let me know all your thoughts, gang.

BBC announces Doctor Who 60th anniversary multimedia event Doom’s Day

It was announced last month that Titan Comics are participating in BBC Studios’ multi-platform Doctor Who story, Doom’s Day to celebrate Doctor Who’s 60th anniversary. Doom’s Day is a standalone transmedia series across multiple platforms and will allow Doctor Who fans to follow Doom, the Universe’s greatest assassin, as she travels through all of time and space in pursuit of the Doctor to save her from her ever-approaching Death. She only has 24 hours and a vortex manipulator to save herself before her fate is sealed forever.

Available in comic stores and on digital devices at release, Titan’s Doctor Who: Doom’s Day #1 comic is an adventure starring Doom in her comic book debut – using her vortex manipulator, she’ll do anything to find the tempestuous time traveller, the Doctor, including cavorting with the maleficent MISSY. Every hour a new adventure, every hour closer to death…

Doctor Who: Doom’s Day #1 is written by Eisner-nominated Jody Houser (Stranger Things, Star Wars, Spider-Man) with art by Roberta Ingranata (Witchblade). The comic debuts with two covers for fans to collect: from celebrated artist Pasquale Qualano, and a photo cover variant.

Jake Devine, Editor, Titan’s Doctor Who Comics, says: “I’m so excited to be working with Jody and Roberta once more, and I can’t think of a better team to introduce this dazzling new character to the world of Doctor Who comic books. Throw Missy into the fold and you’ve got one sensational adventure!”

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
