Ninth Doctor comic stories

Ninth Doctor comic stories are those featuring the ninth incarnation of the Doctor from the television science fiction series Doctor Who. The Ninth Doctor's comic tenure was perhaps most notable for two things: the brevity of the run and the involvement of Rose Tyler. No other Doctor had a run quite so brief as the Ninth and none used exclusively his televised companion; in fact, Christopher Eccleston's Doctor was the first since the Third Doctor (who debuted in 1970) to debut in comics with a televised companion. This latter point was quite significant: no Doctor since the Third took his bow in The Arkwood Experiments had started his comic run with his televised companions intact.

The Ninth Doctor's Doctor Who Magazine run was the only one ever completely drawn by a single penciller — Mike Collins — though other eras were nearly drawn by a single artist. The Ninth Doctor's run as the incumbent Doctor was just nine DWM issues long, plus a single story in an annual, making him by far the shortest-lived Doctor in comics. an ongoing comic book was launched by Titan in 2016
