THE GIRL WHO LOVED DOCTOR WHO (Paul Cornell/Jimmy Broxton)

Pour l’ultime récit de Doctor Who édité par IDW Publishing, le scénariste Paul Cornell racontera sa dernière histoire du 11ème Docteur, une lettre d’amour intitulée The Girl Who Loved Doctor Who qui sortira en décembre, la même semaine que l’épisode de Noël qui marque le départ de l’acteur Matt Smith.

Pour l’occasion, Cornell retrouve le dessinateur Jimmy Broxton avec qui il a réalisé en 2010 une mini-série sur les Batman et Robin anglais: Le Chevalier et l’écuyer.

Après quoi, la franchise passera entre les mains de Titan Comics.

[quote]The Girl Who Loved Doctor Who is the name of my forthcoming one-off Doctor Who comic from IDW, drawn by an artist I’ve had the pleasure of working with on many previous occasions, Jimmy Broxton. Here’s his lovely cover…

It’s my anniversary celebration of the series that’s formed the central thread of my career, the reason I started writing, the reason I’ve got to where I am. I realised a few months ago that I had one last Who tale left to tell, and this is it, my farewell to the 11th Doctor, to be released just when he leaves us, in Christmas week. It’s the story of the Doctor landing in our world, the real world, finding himself to be a well known fictional character and encountering, well, lots of things, but notably Matt Smith.

I hope it reads like an episode. It’s a 40 page story, and the issue is even bigger than that, including back-up strips I’m not yet able to mention. (I’m writing this before San Diego Comic Con, this blog post to be automatically activated after the IDW panel on which this is going to be announced. So I, erm, hope that worked. Otherwise you’re reading this before the panel, and I’m about to get yelled at from onstage.)

Here are the first two pages, hot off the press from Jimmy… That’s an Andy Warhol painting the Doctor’s looking at.[/quote]

Once here, the Doctor encounters a 10-year-old girl who happens to be a huge fan of the Doctor Who TV show.
