Build High for Happiness! PARADISE TOWERS is back!

Cutaway Comics, Manchester’s comic imprint exploring creator-owned properties from Doctor Who announces a comic sequel to the classic Doctor Who story PARADISE TOWERS: PARADISE FOUND.

The story was notable for the introduction of the Kangs, who with their tribal colours and use of street language became an iconic addition to Doctor who lore and a cosplay favourite.

Taking place after events in the Doctor Who serial of the same name, PARADISE FOUND continues the story about the weird and colourful world of Paradise Towers taking the characters and setting into a new and exciting dimension.

Featuring art by the dynamic and bold SILVANO BELTRAMO (Antarctic Press, TPub Comics),Paradise Towers ’mix of the urban and tribal will appeal to fans of The Ballad of Halo Jones and The Thirteenth Floor.

Silvano was the winning submission from Cutaway Comics’ callout for a series artist for Paradise Towers, which the Cutaway Comics team picked for it’s “freshness and boldness in handling the source material” and we can’t wait for you to see what Silvano has produced.

Paradise Towers’ original creator, award-winning dramatist STEPHEN WYATT has been extensively involved in the storylining process working with emerging writer SEAN MASON,who has previously adapted V for Vendetta and Halo Jones for the stage.

Stephen says: “Ice hot! Sean has come up with a brilliant21st-century take on the Towers,witty, inventive, and exciting. I’m delighted.”

Launching a Kickstarter supporting the title Publisher Gareth Kavanagh comments: “We’re hugely excited to be returning to the towers with an ice-hot team of artists and writers, all overseen by the original Great Architect himself,Stephen Wyatt.”

The Kickstarter, launching on 22nd April, will include the chance to get early copies of the comic as well as exclusive perks including postcards of cover art, prints, t-shirts, and even Kang sweatbands for that 80’s look!

Gareth adds: “Kickstarter has been a hugely valuable platform to assist with launching our new titles during the pandemic. Through it, we are able to offer perks such as the opportunity to appear in the comic, and help out with options to make packages economical to ship to overseas buyers.”

An award-winning architectural miracle, Paradise Towers was built high for happiness,Paradise Towers has a place for all and a safe haven from the war. All Residents, former Caretakers, and Kangs live in harmony.

Now that General Favalan and her soldiers have restored peace and prosperity to Paradise Towers has never been safer. Paradise is perfect.Paradise is pure. Paradise promises possibility! Make your forever home at Paradise Towers today. It’s to die for!

    Backed it! I couldn’t resist. Paradise Tower (the serial) isn’t my favourite, but it’s crammed to the penthouse with imagination that will lend itself so well to the comic form.

    Never thought I would see the day a comc book based on my all time No. 1 story Paradise Towers would become available. I would love to see a return there with Jodie’s Doctor before she regenerates, in fact Paradise Towers would not have been out of place in the last season. Orphan 55 was similar in DNA. Hope to see Pex in these comics too even if in flashback.

    That new cleaning machine looks quite Dalek-y. Have they joined forces lol?

    Build my comic pile high for happiness.
