Coming this Spring: The Art of Doctor Who

Here's an interesting magazine I've just seen listed in the new Previews catalogue. In a few months time, Panini UK will publish the next issue of their Doctor Who Special Edition quarterly and this time it'll focus on The Art of Doctor Who

The info tells us: "The latest Special Edition of Doctor Who Magazine is devoted to the artists who have brought the television series' concepts to life in other mediums. New interviews and previously unseen artwork reveal the inspirations behind the annuals, the classic comics and the greatest book covers, from the early 1960s to the present day."

It will also bring the story up to date with articles on the digital work of concept illustrations for the latest episodes. 

It sounds like an essential purchase for fans of classic Doctor Who strips! It'll have 116 pages and is scheduled for an April release. 

(My apologies for the cover image being grainy, as it was scanned from a small image in the catalogue which is printed on cheap paper. The actual glossy magazine will look far better.)

Nice! Is this a summer special?

Colin Brown said...

Thanks Lew. Always appreciate these heads ups.
This one looks great. I'm surprised that after doing Daleks and Cybermen specials, they haven't done one covering all the other monsters.

I'll HAVE to get this!
Thanks for the tip-off, Lew!

Beanobananas, it'll be on sale throughout early summer so I suppose it could be classed as a summer special.

Colin, no doubt they'll get around to it. As well as the regular monthly mag they also have the 'Special Edition' (which is this one) and The Essential Doctor Who quarterly so I'd imagine a monsters themed one will figure in there sometime.

John, you're welcome.

Yep, it sounds good. There's a lot of stuff they could potentially cover, from comic strips to sweet cigarette cards.
