    So the latest DWM confirms that this volume contains:

    The Piggybackers (4 parts)
    The White Dragon (4 parts)
    The Forest Bride (2 parts)
    It’s Behind You! (1 part)

    Leaving the last two stories to be published… when?

      It also includes Hydra’s Gate apparently, just leaving Monstrous Beauty (3 parts), Dr. Who & The Mechonoids (1 part), Fear of the Future (1 part) and The Everlasting Summer (4 parts). Which I am unsure how couldn’t be included in this volume

      My copy of this is arriving tomorrow so I’ll let you know exactly what is in the book.

    • Bookcollector

      February 27th, 2024 - 1:20pm

      Just arrived. It features…

      The Piggybackers
      The White Dragon
      The Forest Bride
      It’s Behind You!
      Hydra’s Gate

      I’m wondering if they will do what they did with Peter capaldi’s strips, where clockwise war was the title strip and the rest were older unrelated strips. The last Jodie will be the title story but the rest of the book will be monstrous beauty, fear of the future and possibly the cushing story and any other outstanding strips.

    I wish they had given her a complete first year book and also have continued 10th,11th and 12th they got their first year then they just stopped.In my experience series 1 on tenth doctor comics is much easier to get hold of than series 3.

      That’s Titan, this book is Panini.

    Love that cover! Can’t wait for this, it’s long overdue

    Is it true that David Tennant 14th doctor only has one long ongoing comic stripe story ‘Liberation Of The Daleks’ before he becomes 15th doctor in comic stripe story early next year?

      Yes it’s 1 long 13 issue story that will be ending in October’s DWM

      Yes. RTD gave permission to have the 14th Doctors’ first story in DWM. Which presumably leads into The Star Beast.

      Rumour has it that the last part of big finishes “once and future” will involve the 14th doctor somehow. I’m sure I read RTD said there will be a gap between the comic and TV to allow space.

      There is a confirmed 14th doctor story in the upcoming 10th doctor Christmas tales book so no, I don’t think it’s going to lead directly into star beast. Too much money would be left on the table for…..

    I think they’ll cut The Everlasting Summer and include that with some of the miscellaneous strips still unaccounted for.

    • EvanMarshall

      September 14th, 2023 - 5:30pm

      It would be quite hard to market a volume that had the final 13th Doctor story, a Ninth Doctor story, a Movie Doctor story and some Gatwa stories. I think they’ll finish off the 13th Doctor here. If they tag the Ninth and Movie strips on as well they’d be nice bonuses but I don’t see them splitting off any of the Jodie strips this near the end. Then they can make a big deal of it being a new era for the next volume with Gatwa.

      They’ll probably save the TLV 9th Doctor strip for “The Complete Ninth Doctor Collection”.

    • AlbertoFrog

      September 15th, 2023 - 11:59am

      They already did the Ninth Doctor collection – The Cruel Sea – in 2014

      The eye roll emoji didn’t send, just joking that they’d release it all again for one new story. 🙂

      September 15th, 2023 - 5:17pm

      Hah! Yes, many a true word etc etc

    So I think this should wrap up the 13th Doctor strips?

    Volume 1 had:
    The Warmonger (4 parts)
    Herald of Madness (5 parts)
    The Power of the Mobox (3 parts)
    Mistress of Chaos (6 parts)

    18 issues in total

    So this volume should be:
    The Piggybackers (4 parts)
    The White Dragon (4 parts)
    The Forest Bride (2 parts)
    It’s Behind You! (1 part)
    Hydra’s Gate (4 parts)
    Fear of the Future (1 part)
    The Everlasting Summer (4 parts)

    20 issues in total

    • Anthony G

      2 more issues, but less pages due to the magazine dropping each installment down to just 6 pages (from a high of 12 pages in the Capaldi era).

      Brilliant. I did wonder with all the Extra Graphics , when this would be published.

      One assumes with Ncuti comic strip in Dec, we might get his first collection next October 2024.

      So timing is bang on. Hope they include everything .

    • EvanMarshall

      September 14th, 2023 - 5:26pm

      I think it would be a bit optimistic to have a Ncuti volume by October 2024, Bryan. With the strip down to just six pages now it would only be a collection of about 60, maybe 66 pages by next October. I suspect it will take two years now to build up a collection with the shorter monthly page count.

    Is the final 13th graphic novel, or will there be one more to come?

    • Anthony G

      September 14th, 2023 - 12:16pm

      This will be the last one, especially as the length of the issues was dramatically cut to the 6 pages it is now.

      I wonder if they’ll add the Peter Cushing installment in here, or the Doom’s Day special?

      (I own some of the original White Drago art with Bruce Lee in it. Ka-pow!)
