This to the cover artist I am wondering what and how you got into making the cover for this comic book. I've been trying to break in to the comics industry and I have been having trouble getting in. What advice do you have to give? I would really like to know. Thanks
Bleh.... IDW getting the DW licence is a travesty.
Ridiculous. I know a european dude who'd been working hard to get the licence to do comics in english on a global scale, for 12 years... every time they told him "We just dont want comics to be made. There's no need for it - the Doctor Who magazine already has a comic strip."
Every six months he came to them with a complete strategy including 100 page graphic novels written by some of the top sci-fi writers of the world, 48 page monthlies in mini-series format, featuring different doctors from story to story (just like the classic series - 4 chapters to a story), income and royalty projections, secure distribution in book stores throughout the united kingdom, scandinavia, germany and a couple of chains in america, not to mention the 10.000 pound minimum guarantee he offered 'em... What does the BBC do?
Right after he came to 'em his last time, in which they told him the same fucking bullshit line, they publicize the licencing arrangement with fucking IDW.
Whoever the morons at BBC Worldwide are, they dont know a damn thing about business. Limiting their main property to comic book stores and collections of the same shit already been in the shops? Republications of DWM's old comics? AGAIN....
So I check out a couple of the first things IDW release, when I'm in a library that happens to have 'em... and it's run of the mill crap. Same shit every american comics pamphleteer does... Huge disappointment.
Every time I see some of IDW's Doctor Who shit, it pisses me off no end at the BBC, and at the poor quality of the product they actually allow to represent their flagship franchise.
Give me a break.
Decent figure on the cover, though, Kidsworld. Though he looks like Tom Baker - not David Tennant.
