Fans of the show have been devastated by the lack of new\u00a0Torchwood\u00a0on our TV screens over the last few years. Despite the rabid fanbase the show enjoyed, it disappeared from the airwaves after its (generally seen to be misguided) fourth series finished back in 2011. Since then, the adventures of the team have continued on in different mediums, including audio dramas which have managed to bring back the original cast. \u00a0Now Titan Comics\u00a0have joined in, with the announcement that they will be producing a new comic book series. What's more, the book will be written by Captain Jack himself - John Barrowman.\r\n\r\nAccording to Io9,\u00a0Barrowman will pen the series along with his frequent collaborator - and sister - Carole E Barrowman. Antonia Fusio and Pasquale Qualano, meanwhile, are on artwork duties.\r\n\r\nTorchwood #1\u00a0will see the immortal Captain return to Cardiff, where he reunites with his old team member Gwen Cooper and her husband Rhys to help him on the hunt for a piece of insidious technology that is being sought after by a shadowy organisation. So, basically, a normal day for the Torchwood team.\r\n\r\nVariant covers for the first issue can be viewed below:\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nThis isn't the first time the Barrowmans have written for\u00a0Torchwood. The pair previously wrote a one-off comic strip together for the now defunct\u00a0Torchwood Magazine,\u00a0before penning the novel\u00a0Torchwood: Exodus Code.\u00a0Away from\u00a0Torchwood,\u00a0they have written a popular Young Adult book series,\u00a0Hollow Earth.\u00a0\u00a0Clearly, then, the pair are safe hands to entrust the future of\u00a0Torchwood\u00a0to. Even without the geeky thrill of having Captain Jack writing new adventures for Captain Jack.\r\n\r\nTorchwood #1\u00a0will be released in both the UK and the US on July 6th.
