First of the 2008 annuals
Above (top): The dummy cover to this year's Doctor Who Storybook and, below it, the actual cover that will be published.
The cover image for the Doctor Who Storybook 2008 has been released, which will be published by Panini in August. For all intents and purposes this is the Doctor Who Annual, but as the BBC now publish their own title with that name for a younger reader Panini use the term "Storybook" instead. (In effect, this means two Doctor Who annuals a year.)
Not exactly a comic book, as the contents contain eight illustrated stories, but presumably there will be one comic strip in there (as was the format for last year's Storybook). Writers from the tv series are amongst the contributors.
The book is ready for pre-order from Amazon here:
