Rose and Capt. Jack Harkness join the Ninth Doctor in new Who comic miniseries

The current run of Doctor Who comics is providing some great adventures for fans who miss the past two fellas to pilot the TARDIS — but what if you want to go back a bit further?

Well, the folks at Titan Comics will have you covered very soon. The publisher has announced a new five-issue miniseries starring Christopher Eccleston’s Ninth Doctor, plus two of his fan-favorite companions. The series will follow the Doctor on some throwback adventures, with both Rose and Capt. Jack Harkness along for the ride.

Despite the prequel aspect, the official synopsis hints at a fairly massive plot at the center of the story, with the Doctor and his team working to avert another temporal war that could destroy the universe due to some stolen Time Lord tech. Check it out below:

Leaving World War II behind, The Ninth Doctor, Rose and Captain Jack discover that Time Lord technology, lost in the wake of the Time War, is being sold on the intergalactic black market! Now the threat of a NEW temporal war brews on the horizon. Can the Doctor stop history repeating itself?

The series will be written by Cavan Scott and drawn by Blair Shedd. The first issue is set to hit comic shops March 11, 2015.

While we wait, check out the cover shot below and let us know what you think.
