NEW YORK (AP) — Doctor Who has found Titan.

BBC Worldwide says that Britain's Titan Comics will start publishing a new series of comics featuring the time-and-space-traveling Time Lord this year ahead of the materialization of actor Peter Capaldi as the 12th Doctor.

Titan said Tuesday it will publish comics focusing on the 10th and 11th incarnations of Doctor Who — the ones played by David Tennant and Matt Smith — along with Capaldi's No. 12, starting later in 2014. Writers and artists for the new titles have not been announced.

Previously, San Diego-based IDW Publishing had published "Doctor Who" comics in North America since 2008, ending its run last month with the "Doctor Who Special" that celebrated the character's 50th anniversary.
