John Barrowman Returns To Captain Jack With Torchwood #1

Torchwood_001_Convention_Special_Cover_A_Tommy_Lee_Edwards (1)We all know John Barrowman as either Captain Jack Harkness on Doctor Who / Torchwood or as Malcolm Merlyn on Arrow. We also know he's a song and dance man and a hell of a lot of fun at conventions. He is also a writer, most often teaming with his sister Carole E. Barrowman for novels and recently an Arrow digital comic focusing on Merlyn.

Now the two Barrowmans team up once more, this time with Titan Comics to produce an new Torchwood comic series that is going to debut at San Diego Comic Con. This includes a special edition and both John and Carole making appearances at the convention.

Torchwood #1 sees Captain Jack come back to Cardiff to engage the help of the last person who expected to see him again, Gwen Cooper! On the road, on the run, and under fire – can Jack and Gwen put aside their differences and rebuild the heart of Torchwood… before its flame is stamped out forever?!

Alongside the regular edition (in comic book stores August 3), Titan are proud to present a special convention edition of Torchwood which includes the entirety of Torchwood #1 plus extra fan-favorite John Barrowman and Carole E. Barrowman-penned adventure "The Selkie", with art and a brand-new cover from comic book legend Tommy Lee Edwards (Batman, Hellboy).

These regular and special editions are available to purchase at the Titan booth #5537 at San Diego Comic-Con 2016.

John Barrowman and Carole E. Barrowman will be guests on a special Titan panel where fans will be treated to announcements, behind-the-scenes reveals and upcoming plans for the Torchwood comic series. This panel will take place on Saturday July 23 at 3:30PM in room 5AB.

Fans will also have the opportunity to meet John Barrowman and Carole E. Barrowman at the show as they will be signing copies of Torchwood #1 on Sunday July 24 between 11:00am and 12:00pm at Autograph Area, Table AA21.
