New Torchwood Magazine features official comic

The first ever official Torchwood comic strip debuts in the first issue of Titan's Torchwood magazine, on sale 24 January. Written by Transformers legend Simon Furman, and drawn by SL Gallant (Marvel Adventures), The Legacy of Torchwood One sees a figure from Ianto’s past reappear in Cardiff, causing fear and havoc for the entire team.

Torchwood Magazine editor Simon Hugo told downthetubes that over the next few months, the magazine will feature brand new adventures by a host of comics talent, including Ian Edgington (Scarlet Traces, 2000AD), D’Israeli (Judge Dredd, Scarlet Traces), Steve Yeowell (The Invisibles, Zenith, Sebastian O) and Brian Williamson (Doctor Who), "plus a few more surprise names along the way".

The strip pages are edited by Steve White, also editor of Titan's new Transformers comic and other comics titles at the company, which is probably originating more comic strip than many other UK comics publishers right now as well as reprinting DC Comics, Simpsons and other titles primarily for the UK market.
