David Tennant’s iconic portrayal of the Tenth Doctor in the venerable “Doctor Who” franchise is one of the most beloved in the series’ 60-year history.
Now, Titan Comics is offering up a batch of new adventures starring the gallivanting Gallifreyan in a 64-page graphic novel written by comics veteran and “Spider-Verse” co-creator Dan Slott.
Zooming into our dimension on Nov. 7, “Doctor Who: Once Upon A Time Lord” features interior and cover artwork from acclaimed illustrators Christopher Jones, Matthew Dow Smith, and Mike Collins. And we’ve got a trippy new trailer and a dual-cover sneak peek at all the otherworldly timey-wimey mischief.
Here’s the official synopsis:
