Torchwood Magazine 21

magzine-torchwood20Torchwood’s Gareth David-Lloyd pens comic

The new issue of the official Torchwood magazine – on sale 15th April – plays host to an exclusive Torchwood comic strip penned by Torchwood star and fan-favourite, Gareth David-Lloyd!

David-Lloyd’’s character, Ianto Jones, who died in Captain Jack’s arms in the recent Torchwood five-part series ‘Children of Earth’,’ gets a new lease of life and takes centre stage once again in this exclusive comic strip – a move that will delight all fans of the criticallly acclaimed Doctor Who spin-off.

Talking exclusively to the official Torchwood magazine, David-Lloyd said, “I feel I know this character implicitly. The narrative of this comic focuses predominantly on Ianto, and integrates a number of characters who have been missed by Torchwood’’s ardent followers.”

torchcomic2The story, titled ‘Shrouded’, is made up of two parts and is as diverse as it is thrilling. Ianto, who struggles with his tumultuous feelings for Captain Jack from the offset, has his world turned upside-down by the visit of a familiar face from the future.

Additionally, he is set a mission that could alter the course of life, as he knows it, forever…

‘Shrouded’ is illustrated by Pia Guerra, the critically acclaimed artist of Vertigo Comics’ ground-breaking series, Y: The Last Man and more recently, ‘Doctor Who: The Forgotten.’ Pia won ‘Outstanding comic book artist for 2006’ at the Joe Schuster Awards.

Torchwood Magazine issue 21 -Available from all good retailers and specialist comic stores.

    I like Ianto, too. I’m sad that his character was killed off. I think there was more to learn about his character. He was not like your average butler/admin staff. You could tell from some of his responsibilities that he handled highly sensitive/highly confidential duties behind the scenes. I sensed that he was a very trusted and valuable employee. If they continue producing the show, I wish they’d find a way to bring him back from the dead.

    Not to sound offensive here, but it would be quite embarrasing buying that from the shops…
