Titan Comics 12th Doctor Variant Cover – exclusive to WHOlanta

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!

March 26, 2005 not only gave birth to the modern series of Doctor Who but also to our humble little convention! Thank you all for supporting us over the past 12 years! We hope to continue bringing you great programming for many more. 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. See you at WHOlanta 2017!
