Cutaway Comics brings a dark fairy-tale to life in OMEGA

Cutaway Comics, the new Manchester-based comic imprint exploring the world of the Doctor Who universe is back. Following the success of launch title Lytton, “The opening chapter shows great promise”, Set the Tape), our second title OMEGA launched to a huge response on Kickstarter beating it’s target and initial stretch goals within a few days.

Featuring art by the indomitable JOHN RIDGWAY (Doctor Who Voyager, Hellblazer), OMEGA’s mix of the cosmic and mythologic will appeal to fans of The Sandman and Promethea. We have worked closely with original creator BOB BAKER to ensure our exploration of the character is true to Bob (and late co-creator Dave Martin’s) vision of Doctor Who’s own Galactus. The story is written by MARK GRIFFITHS, fresh from developing the acclaimed play from Room 5064 Productions about Douglas Adams, We Apologise for the Inconvenience.

Mark is thrilled to be at the helm of the story commenting: “It’s a dream come true – a Premier League Doctor Who villain!” Omega is currently available to pre-order through Kickstarter with perks including merchandise bundles, and a unique opportunity to own a limited edition hardback of John Ridgway’s black and white art for the series.

Publisher Gareth Kavanagh comments: “We’re pushing the boundaries of what can be achieved with Doctor Who spin-offs. Aside from the DVD discs with audio and visual content that come with each issue, Kickstarter allows us to see what extra material our supporters want – risk free for us, but richly rewarding for everyone if we can meet our targets.”

Part of the stretch goals includes Bob Baker writing his first comic – ELDRAD MUST LIVE!

Based on the silicon creature from the 1976 Doctor Who story ‘The Hand of Fear’, this one-shot comic sees a deadly splinter from Eldrad’s body regenerate and cause havoc in a nuclear reactor. Can the reactor’s controller Professor Watson stop Eldrad – again? Bob has teamed up with Marvel and DC artist Stephen B. Scott for this exciting one-shot that promises to deliver a classic slice of horror – #eldradmustlive – but only with the help of our backers! Gareth adds: “Some people might think we are mad continuing and developing characters like Orcini and Eldrad, but with so much potential left unexplored in these worlds, and the original creators willing to explore them in a medium new to them, we’ve got a formidable
match of talent and energy to harness.”

Cutaway Comics continues to invest in the future of the imprint with work progressing on future titles which include Paradise Towers: Paradise Found launching 2021.

The Kickstarter can be found here along with information on the project and a teaser video for Omega. More information can be found on the Cutaway Comics website at or by following Cutaway Comics on Twitter at @cutawayuniverse

    The scientist on the left, let’s call him Dr Banner seems to be changing into some incredible hulking Eldrad. Is this going to be released through FP or is it only through kickstarter?
