    I wonder why the Clara photo one is more expensive than the others

    Oh, so now I will be able to order one from a local comic shop? That’s great news.

    Why is there a variant of the front page of the comic that’s just blank? Is there a reason?

      The Blank Variant is usually sought after by comic book fans who will attend conventions/expos & the like, to get a sketch done on the Front Cover by a particular artist in attendance. In effect they have then got an original one-off artwork by their favourite comic book artist…

    Wonder if a dr who legacy code might be added with this issue I’ll enquire.

    I though these couldn’t be sold as printed issues in the uk

      that’s what was originally said

    I assume this will go digital like the 10th and 11th fellows ?

  • Pull To Open

    August 28th, 2014 - 3:29pm

    I wonder how many variants there will be of this.
    Issue One of the 10th and 11th Doctors had 78 covers in total and that was before 2nd printing!

      So glad I gave up on comics years back…

    I can’t find this on the Forbidden Planet website…

    • booboo

      July 31st, 2014 - 10:37am

      that’s because they cant sell it in the UK

    • Doctor 909

      August 28th, 2014 - 11:32am

      Why can’t they sell them in the UK, Booboo?

    • booboo

      August 28th, 2014 - 11:35am

      they couldn’t but obviously they can now

    • Pull To Open

      August 28th, 2014 - 3:24pm

      The IDW comics couldn’t be sold in the UK due to the comic rights being with Panini for the official magazine.
      The new license is now with Titan and will be sold in the UK.
      There seems to be no nationwide UK distribution however so it is limited to specialist retailers.

    • booboo

      August 28th, 2014 - 3:27pm

      its was said by Titan originally you would not be able to buy the 12th doctor comics in the UK

    • Pull To Open

      August 28th, 2014 - 3:43pm

      Sorry I hadn’t realised that PC was except!
      It does appear that the 12th Doctor comics were to be digital only.
      Looks like some common sense prevailed.

    • booboo

      August 28th, 2014 - 3:45pm

      agreed, i assume it was because DWM also did a 12th doctor comic strip but there is room for both

  • alexanderop

    June 19th, 2014 - 7:32pm

    Those Variant covers for Issue 1 are cool, but I think the 1st and 4th are particularly fantastic and make me want to purchase it already. I wonder if a local comic shop will order it in, or whether I will have to use

    • Dalekparadigm2

      August 28th, 2014 - 1:45pm

      I would use as the posting is mega cheap for a variant that at one time wasn’t available in the UK

    I spot a new image of the 12th Dr at the top

    • Doctorwhorules1234

      June 19th, 2014 - 5:46pm

      I think that image has been around for a while

      that little icon image at the top of the mag

    Will it be possible to get these from ebay or amazon booboo?

    • booboo

      June 18th, 2014 - 10:29am

      maybe ebay but the prices tend to be high as importing stuff to the UK is expense

  • doctor where

    June 18th, 2014 - 10:19am

    why can’t you get these in the uk its a bbc show for god sake

    • booboo

      June 18th, 2014 - 10:21am

      i think its because DWM has the UK license for 12th Doctor Comics – there is more and more merchandise only licensed for overseas sales

    • doctor where

      June 18th, 2014 - 10:39am

      ahhh I see but do you think they will be up on ebay

    • booboo

      June 18th, 2014 - 10:40am

      some IDW ones were (they had the license until recently)

      there might be some USA sellers who will shop them reasonably as well

      when they actually go up for order i will have a dig around

    • John-Robin!

      June 18th, 2014 - 2:14pm

      You can easily order these comics online,and FP usually gets them even if there are restrictions. At least they have in the past. Looking good and I’ll probably be getting them.

      official press releases says download only in UK

    Curious, artwork of Peter Capaldi reminds me of some of the very late 60’s and early 70’s. It’s either the logo or I’m showing my age. However, I’ve no complaints over the covers, apart from the Clara one and I’m sick and tired about any mention of wretched souffle. Stop it now!

  • Radburn

    June 18th, 2014 - 1:37am

    Don’t get me started again…

    Will a proper, physical copy of the individual ranges (10th, 11th and 12th) be available in a collected format in the near future?

    • booboo

      June 17th, 2014 - 8:37pm

      not sure what’s happening with these, the 10th is on amazon, the 11th was but disappeared all individual ones for 10tha 11th have been put up on FP

      looks like the licence conflict may on be for the 12th doctor

    The painting of Capaldi is interesting – the head is from the original promotional picture – only they have painted him to be smiling, the body is from the image of him on the calenders, and the outward arm is something new, either added by the artist or from a promotional picture we are yet to see – nonetheless I like it, would love a poster of all the Doctors in that style.
