DW Shroud of SorrowWINNERS ANNOUNCED BELOW


Dear Fanboy Comics Readers:

We know that, for many of you, the be-all-and-end-all of sci-fi TV can be defined by two words: Doctor WhoWho fervor is on the rise, given the show’s 50th anniversary this year, so Broadway Paperbacks has fanned the fandom's flame by introducing its paperback original Doctor Who tie-in series. Featuring all-new Eleventh Doctor adventures, Justin Richards’s Doctor Who: Plague of the Cybermen, Nicholas Briggs’s Doctor Who: The Dalek Generation, and Tommy Donbavand’s Doctor Who: Shroud of Sorrow are penned in collaboration with BBC’s Cardiff-based TV production team. These authors were given advance access to the scripts of forthcoming episodes and made privy to the secrets of the Doctor’s future before even the most fanatical of fans. Approved by the BBC to make sure nothing is overlooked, these books have the intimate and authentic feel of lost episodes.

Our friends at Broadway have generously provided us not only with a copy of each of the paperbacks, but also a Doctor Who Christmas in April Blu-ray Giftpack (featuring “Doctor Who: A Christmas Carol” and “Doctor Who: The Doctor, The Widow and The Wardrobe”) to give away to our Dalek-loving readers.

The QuestDear Fanboy Comics Readers:


Do you find yourself constantly muttering, "You know nothing, Jon Snow," when a friend says something foolish?  Do you refer to your Xbox as "my precious?"  If I said, "You remind me of the babe," would you know what to say next?  Are you ready for the next Dagorhir event? If you answered "Yes!" to any of these questions, then you will not want to miss The Quest, an epic TV show that is searching for people just like you!
