Saturday, May 6th is Free Comic Book Day and we’ve got some fun stuff planned during the con to celebrate.
1. We will have a Skype Interview with the good folks at Titan Comics, the publisher of Doctor Who comics, at 1PM in Main Programming.
2. We will have a WHOlanta exclusive 12th Doctor comic book variant cover for sale for $5, drawn by guest Kelly Yatrs. The print is limited to 500 copies.
3. We will also have limited copies of the Doctor Who Free Comic Book Day Comic, thanks to Teahouse Comics!
It’s shaping up to be an exciting Saturday at con!
WHOlanta is happy to announce that we will have an exclusive variant cover of the next 12th Doctor issue (Year 3, Issue 2). The cover, drawn by WHOlanta guest Kelly Yates, features the 12th Doctor showing off the 6th Doctor’s technicolor coat, while a bevy of past costumes lay strewn on the TARDIS floor. In the background, a hologram of the 6th Doctor is projected, beaming brightly as to finally having a more subdued coat (the 12th Doctor’s).
The issue is only available for sale at WHOlanta and will be sold onsite at the WHOlanta store for $5. This variant has a particular print run of 500 copies, so get one before it’s too late!

Come celebrate with us on May 5 – 7, and remember – one of our guests, Camille Coduri, was there at the very beginning of the new series! She’ll have lots of great stories to tell about that time.
