Has Titan Got 2014 Comics License?

Is Titan Comics the next publisher of Doctor Who comics in the US?

In July, longtime US rights holder IDW announced that their partnership with BBC Worldwide would be ending after December 2013. Speculation had a number of companies eager to partner with the BBC, but Bleeding Cool is reporting that Titan Comics, the imprint of Titan Publishing, has won that honour.

What this means for rumored upcoming titles is still unknown. IDW will conclude the partnership with a special issue commemorating the show’s 50th anniversary, with Titan likely to begin next year with stories featuring the Eleventh and Twelfth Doctors.

Bleeding Cool is also reporting that the rumors of Titan buying Doctor Who Magazine and the rights to the comic from Panini, in a possible effort to bring the US and UK publishing rights under one roof, are being denied. But such a move might make it easier for Titan to publish their new titles in the UK.

What do you think? Will Titan be a good fit?


Rebecca is still new to the Who world, but is no stranger to sci-fi, being a life long Trekkie. When not watching, reading, blogging, or talking about Doctor Who, she watches so many movies and reads so many books she has to keep a list of both so she doesn't forget any of them. She wishes she could have been with the Doctor and Amy when they met Van Gogh.
