We all know that Matt Smith’s Eleventh Doctor has hung up his bow tie on the Doctor Who television series, making way for Peter Capaldi’s Twelfth Doctor, but the comic book world isn’t done with Eleven just yet. Titan Comics (the new license-holder for Doctor Who comics, taking over from IDW) are generating excitement for their new series featuring unseen adventures of the Eleventh Doctor. Makes sense, but that’s not all! The 50th anniversary episode of Doctor Who proved that the Tenth Doctor played by David Tennant is near and dear to Whovian hearts everywhere, so Titan Comics are giving the Tenth Doctor a new series, too.
The trailer for the Eleventh Doctor comic series is embedded above, and the Tenth Doctor comic series trailer can be seen here.

The comics launch simultaneously on July 23rd, with the issue 2 of the Tenth Doctor range to be published on August 27th and the second issue of the Eleventh Doctor series a little later on September 10th.
While physical copies will be available in the US, Canada, and Australia, unfortunately the comics can only be bought in the UK and Ireland digitally because of licensing issues, which may seem bizarre considering Doctor Who is a British property. The comics can be digitally pre-ordered here and here via comiXology.
