Titan Comics are proud to present a brand-new, mysterious character to the Torchwood mythos – Sladen – who was revealed by Captain Jack himself, John Barrowman through his Facebook and Twitter accounts, following a video teasing the news.
“We are very excited to bring this new character Sladen to the world of Torchwood,” said John Barrowman and Carole Barrowman. “You all know both Carole and I were great fans of the wonderful Elisabeth Sladen who played Sarah Jane Smith and what a better way to pay homage to her and create a character with her last name. Elisabeth Sladen / Sarah Jane Smith was the mother of our ship on Doctor Who and now Sladen lives in Torchwood.”
Torchwood: The Culling #1 is written by Captain Jack himself, John Barrowman with his co-writer sister Carole Barrowman. With artwork by legendary artist, Neil Edwards, the first appearance of Sladen hits stores on October 18, 2017!
When we last saw Captain Jack, Gwen, and the rest of the new Torchwood team, they had just defeated an alien invasion in the Arctic… but missed a mysterious pod, buried under the ice, that held a seemingly familiar face. Now Captain Jack must battle his worst nightmare… or greatest daydream!
