A special variant Cover has been created for the latest Doctor Who Comic, Doctor Who: The Thirteenth Doctor S2 #1, which will raise money to help those fighting the Australian Wildfires.
The cover variant is by Stewart McKenny with colour by John Law, and is available exclusively through Comics Etc, one of Australia's leading comic book retailers. It is limited to 500 copies worldwide.
Stewart McKenny has been described as one of Australia's most prolifically published comic book artists. He has worked on Star Wars comics, including Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures, as well as working on Captain America. His British small press work includes contributions to FutureQuake.
McKenny revealed the news on his Facebook page.
I've been a huge fan of Doctor Who ever since I was a kid (Tom Baker was my first Doctor) - and the opportunity to create official Doctor Who artwork is something that's always been on my Bucket List! What's more, this issue really does have it all - David Tennant, Jodie Whittaker, Autons AND Weeping Angels, in a reimagining of one of my favourite episodes ever - 'Blink'!Comics Etc is donating $5 to the New South Wales Rural Fire Service for each copy purchased of this variant comic.
Wendy and I are constantly overwhelmed by the support that you guys give us, and we're really hoping that you can get behind this comic. We're hoping that every cent donated through the sales of this comic will, in some way, make a difference, and bring some hope, to the country during this desperate time - and what is Doctor Who if not a symbol of hope?
