Cutaway Comics, the new independent imprint featuring worlds and characters from the world of BBC Television’s Doctor Who, had announced stretch goals for their hugely successful Kickstarter.
The project has already raised over £8,000, far in excess of the £678 goal.
The top goal will be a pilot for a new series of comics featuring ORCINI: Master of the Grand Order of Oberon, as played by William Gaunt in the 1985 Doctor Who story Revelation of the Daleks .
This is a return for one of Eric Saward’s most celebrated creations. Oricini is a space knight, who battles evil across the five galaxies with his loyal squire, Bostock, at his side.
Publisher Gareth Kavanagh comments:
Orcini is available to those backing the Cutaway Comics Kickstarter and will be issued if the top funding goal is met. Other goals include merchandise packages which include new commentaries for classic Doctor Who serials, and prints and posters based around launch title Lytton.
The Kickstarter can be found online along with information on the project and an introductory video. More information can be found on the Cutaway Comics website or in the latest issue of Doctor Who Magazine which features an article with interviews including Eric Saward, Bob Baker, Stephen Wyatt and artists Barry Renshaw and John Ridgway.
