Missy returns in Doctor Who ‘Doom’s Day’ comic series

Posted Filed under

A two-issue comic series will launch in July as part of the Doctor Who multi-platform story Doom’s Day. The comic series will feature fan-favourite character Missy on the trail of new character Doom, who makes her comic book debut.

The series from Titan Comics is the first story to be announced in the multi-platform Doom’s Day adventure to celebrate the show’s 60th anniversary.

Doom’s Day is a stand-alone trans-media 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. 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 featuring actress Sooz Kempner as Doom.

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!”

DOCTOR WHO: DOOM’S DAY #1 is available in comic stores and digital edition on 5 July, 2023. You can pre-order globally from Diamond Previews May 2023, Forbidden Planet and on digital device via Comixology.
