Doctor Who will return to television sets with a new season and the Doctor Who comic books will get a multi-Doctor story arc that will be written by fan favorite writer Paul Cornell.

The five-part comic book storyline that was announced by Titan Comics last Thursday will feature the 10th, 11th and 12th incarnations of the Doctor. This will be the first time that all three Doctors have seen a story together.

According to Techtimes, the story begins in August and runs through September, with each issue seeing a weekly release. It will replace the separate issues for Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor, Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor and Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor.

This release comes just a month after Titan Comics' Doctor Who Day, which takes place on July 26. The celebration includes signings, giveaways and contests in the U.S., U.K. and online to promote the release of Titan's first issues of the Doctor Who comics. The series was previously published by IDW Comics until Titan took it over last year.

Titan also plans to host contests at this year's San Diego Comic Con. Comic book stores participating in the promotion will offer a 32-page sample issue with previews ofDoctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor.

Cornell will also be featured in a series of novellas by Tor books to be released in September.

The first issue of the crossover multi-Doctor story will be released on August 12. Titan will also release the first issue of its much-anticipated five-part Ninth Doctor series next month.
