Here is a sneak peek at the upcoming Torchwood comic, brought to us by the great people at Titan Magazines. The new comic was written by John Barrowman and illustrated by artist Tommy Lee Edwards.
In case you forgot, here’s a quick refresher from the press release, which we reported on back in June.
‘Captain Jack and the Selkie’ is one of two original Torchwood stories in issue #1 and sees Jack facing a deadly threat on a remote Scottish island, where people are disappearing one by one. To his horror, Jack starts to suspect he may know who, or rather what, is responsible.
Barrowman is overjoyed to have worked with Edwards, who he describes as one of his favorite artists. The pair began their collaboration when Barrowman and his sister Carole came across a poster of Captain Jack at the 2008 San Diego Comic Con.
“Tommy and Trevor had drawn a brilliant poster of my face super-imposed over the Face of Boe, which I think is the best piece of Captain Jack art I’ve seen,” said Barrowman. “The four of us hit it off immediately and I asked if they’d ever be interested in working with us on a Captain Jack project. They thought about it for, oh, about 30 seconds, and so ‘Captain Jack and the Selkie’ was born!”
Titan Magazines has just released a short, but sweet looking trailer for the comic.
This new comic should tide us Torchwood fans over until we see some story leaks and other assorted goodness from the next series.
To top off this great announcement, a new cover of the upcoming comic has been finalized and it features a slightly different background graphic.
