Titan Comics has announced it is bringing the Torchwood television series to comic book form, and the first issue will be written by John Barrowman!
The hotly anticipated Torchwood comic sees Captain Jack return to Cardiff to engage the help of the last person who expected to see him again, Gwen Cooper! A dark technology from a forgotten species has been claimed by a conspiratorial power… and in this collision between an ancient civilization and an all-new evil, the Earth itself may be forfeit! Only Jack, Gwen, and their allies from what remains of Torchwood hold the key to stopping a cataclysmic wave of destruction… On the road, on the run, and under fire – can Jack and Gwen put aside their differences and rebuild the heart of Torchwood… before its flame is stamped out forever?!
The Torchwood series will be in continuity with the audio dramas from Big Finish, and will be part of the official Torchwood saga.
Torchwood #1 arrives on July 6th, just ahead of the third annual Doctor Who Comics Day Event on Saturday, July 9th.
