Titan Comics has announced that it is set to celebrate this year’s 50th anniversary of The Master with the release of Doctor Who: Missy, a four-issue series celebrating The Doctor’s deadliest adversary.
From Eisner-nominated writer Jody Houser (Stranger Things, Spider-Man), illustrator Roberta Ingranata (Witchblade), and colorist Enrica Angiolini (Warhammer 40,000), the series will mark the first Doctor Who Comics appearance of the Twelfth Doctor’s arch-rival Missy, as played on TV by Michelle Gomez.
“I wrote a few pages of Missy way back in The Road to Thirteen, and I’ve been dying to write more of her ever since,” said Houser. “Her ineffable cunning and sense of fun make her the most delightful sort of monster.”
MISSY wages war on the Doctor, but this time she’s not alone! Can the combined brilliance of the Third and Twelfth Doctor avert her deadly scheme, or will she get her hands on a secret weapon capable of wreaking havoc on the universe? This special story, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Master’s first appearance, will feature more Doctors and Masters than ever before.
Doctor Who: Missy #1 will go on sale in April 2021.
