Titan Comics’ have announced Doctor Who Comics Day 2017 will be held on on Saturday, September 2.

Doctor Who Comics Day is a global event inspired by Titan Comics’ Doctor Who comic books. 2017 marks the fourth annual Doctor Who Comics Day, set to be bigger than ever before with new comics and collections, merchandise, variant covers, signings, and events across the world at comic shops, bookstores, retail chains, libraries, and on digital platforms. Fans can register for an event kit to hold their own reading group parties.

Last year’s event tied in with the release of the brand-new, five-part Doctor Who comics and Supremacy of the Cybermen series crossover, in celebration of the Cybermen’s 50th anniversary. Written by Doctor Who comics writers Cavan Scott and George Mann, with art by Ivan Rodriguez, Walter Geovanni, and Alessandro Vitti, this release gave readers the chance to celebrate Doctor Who Comics Day at over 2,000 locations.

This year's event will present a story crossing over all four ongoing series (Ninth, Tenth, Eleventh, and Twelfth Doctor comics), kicking off with an accessible Alpha issue, drawn by Rachael Stott (Twelfth Doctor), on Doctor Who Comics Day itself.

More details about the story and the creative teams to be revealed in the coming weeks.
