    pia guerra writing doctor who comic Views: 1085
     Saturday, February 09 2008 @ 10:58 PM EST

    On Friday night at Meltdown Comics in Hollywood, California, Joss Whedon and “Y: The Last Man” creators Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra celebrated the end of the critically acclaimed, 60-issue epic. And for the first time, artist Guerra teased her next project: IDW Publishing's “Dr. Who.” CBR News caught up with Guerra at the party to talk about the project.
    Fans of CBR’s STUDIO TOURS already know that Guerra is an “insane” fan of the British series. “I used to watch the old Tom Baker episodes with my aunt in Toronto, they played them on TV Ontario,” Guerra said. “And then when the new series came out, I started watching those and fell in love with them. It brought back a lot of cool memories from childhood. And I feel totally blessed to be able to work on this new series, which captures a lot of people’s imaginations.”

    Tony Lee is penning the series, and both creators have always shared a love for “Dr. Who.” The seeds of the project were sown at Comic-Con International in San Diego last year in a conversation between Guerra and IDW’s Chris Ryall. “And then I sat on it for 6 months until we got the go ahead, and finally this month BBC has given its blessing. We’re really, really happy about it.” The first issue is scheduled to hit stands in July. And stay tuned to CBR for a full report on "Y: The Last Party."


    i've never read Y: the last man but i've heard nothing but good things about it.

    Pia is an artist so I think she'll be drawing it.

    Funny IDW site doesn't mention her or Tony Lee attached to the Doctor Who series.

    Gary Russell, artist Nick Roche and variant artist Joe Corroney are currently involved in the project for IDW.

    If you delve into the CBR fora, you gain these helpful direct quotes from the principals involved:

    From the artist
    [Quote =Pia Guerra]
    . . . Shane McCarthy [is] presently working on IDW's Transformers and he's the one who introduced me to Chris Ryall at the IDW booth in SDCC. We were talking about possibly doing a Doctor Who story together once he was done with his Transformers arc. A few months later I heard from Chris again, he asked if I would be interested in doing The Forgotten story with Tony Lee after finishing Y (Shane is still working on Transformers and wouldn't be free until later in the year).

    The Forgotten arc will appear in July after the Russel/Roche arc which debuts in February I believe.

    I'm very excited to be working with Tony, and I'll be sure to let everyone know what actor he reminds me of when I get to meet him in London next month.

    From the writer
    [Quote =Tony Lee]
    It's a six part arc / mini / Internet splitting extravaganza called DOCTOR WHO: THE FORGOTTEN. It stars the Tenth Doctor and Martha, is set before the end of season three and involved more than one Doctor.

    And by that, I'm not on about Martha being a Doctor. Or that they bump into Turk from Scrubs. Or House, M.D.

    Although that'd be an interesting episode...

    I first spoke to Pia about this almost a year back when I was first speaking to Chris (Ryall) about the possibility of a Doctor Who tale. I mentioned her interest at the time, but it was so far down the line it was almost forgotten by me.

    When Pia told me that she was on board, I was ecstatic. Like many people, I was a massive fan on her run during Y The Last Man and might have slightly gushed like a fanboy when I met her at last year's Bristol Expo...

    But now I can finally tell people, which is great. And next month both Pia, her lovely husband and myself will be at the Earls Court press launch of the Doctor Who Exhibition where Pia and myself get to have photos taken of us in front of the (real, dammit!) TARDIS.

    That alone, is worth it for me!

    As for the story? I'm a die hard Doctor Who fan, both old and new. I had letters from both the second and third doctors. I've gotten drunk with the fifth. I've sung Karaoke with John Nathan Turner. I've stood by a Dalek at a book launch and fawned over Terrance Dicks like the second coming. Tennant is my favourite, Tom Baker my previous favourite. As I write this I have my signed copy of 'Who On Earth Is Tom Baker' next to my limited edition signed print of Jane Hudson's 4th Doctor design sketch.

    That's not a clue as to who's in the book, by the way.

    I'll be faithful to the Doctor Who series both old and new, and I promise that the diehard fan through the ages will find a lot to 'squee' about, while the new series fan will discover new facets to the Doctor that they never knew about.

    And I put cash money down on the table right now - now that I can mention Pia being the artist - that there is a double page splash panel in the sixth issue that, when drawn and coloured will be made into wallpaper within hours of being printed, and will be one of the most downloaded wallpapers of all time. :-)

    Big words? Hell, I know what the image is, and I'm shivering just thinking about it! Imagine Pia DRAWING it!

    Ah, sorry - you'll have to wait and see...

    I've not heard or read any scuttlebutt on what happens after "The Forgotten". Maybe Gary Russell returns, maybe someone else entirely. But, hell, that's a year away!

    Well, at least I know when I can send a friend to the comic store now: July.
