The Terrible Zodin # 11 (Summer 2011)

With apologies for the delay....

The Terrible Zodin # 11 is now available for free download. Celebrating the lively and colourful world of Doctor Who in comics we bring you an exclusive Magenta Pryce cover by Dan McDaid and artist Kris Carter gives us the low down on inking and illustrating. We have articles on The Dalek Chronicles, Grant Morrison’s comic strips, Business as Usual and reviews of the best Doctor Who comics out there. All this plus a number of our talented contributors bring you their own original strips for your reading pleasure.

Also this issue we reveal TTZ’s encounter with the Moff himself, ponder how old the Doctor is, reveal how to throw your own Doctor Who themed wedding and support the campaign to make The Curse of Fatal Death canon.

The Monster of Peladon gets the No! Not The Mind Probe! treatment, the Back2theWhoture team watch The Time Meddler and The Time Warrior and we say goodbye to Sarah Jane Smith.

All that plus the concluding part to our exclusive interview with Doctor Who legend Terrance Dicks, where he reveals the earth shattering truth about The Terrible Zodin’s murky origins.

So what are you doing reading this blurb when you can be downloading the issue for free? We really value your feedback so please let us know what you think of the issue afterwards – here, by emailing theterriblezodinezine@yahoo.co.uk, or joining us on Facebook and Twitter.

And look on the bright side, this issue may have been a wee bit later than intended but it just means there’s less time to wait till the next one! If you want to be a part of TTZ12, drop us a line, we’d love to hear from you.

HAI-ku! - The Doctor Who Poetry Project

From the makers of The Terrible Zodin comes HAI-ku! - The Doctor Who Poetry Project.

THE MISSION: To write a haiku about each TV story of Doctor Who. To fans each haiku will be an obvious reference, even if just by a familiar image. To non-fans, perhaps they will be taken by surprise at the wealth of language that can be used to describe Doctor Who.

Whilst the primary focus will be haiku we do accept all forms of poetry. Send us your poems and we will publish them.

We look forward to hearing from you and seeing this project develop.

TTZ11 Delayed

Due to numerous and various reasons (not all of them appropriate for a public forum) the next issue of The Terrible Zodin is going to be slightly delayed.

We're working towards having it out by not later that 17th July 2011.

In the meantime work has also started on TTZ12 and we are accepting submissions. The theme is Doctor Who in the 70s and we will also be paying tribute to Nicholas Courtney and Elisabeth Sladen.

Email theterriblezodinezine@yahoo.co​.uk for more info on submitting.
