"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
Good, or at least interesting, news for fans of Torchwood: Actor John Barrowman is teaming with his sister Carole E. Barrowman and artist Tommy Lee Edwards on a comic strip for the next issue of Torchwood magazine.
Barrowman, as viewers of Doctor Who and the spinoff Torchwood know, plays Captain Jack Harkness, a time-traveling former con man who becomes leader of Torchwood.
The comic, which will appear in Issue 14 of the bimonthly magazine, “sees Captain Jack facing a deadly threat on a remote Scottish island, where people are disappearing one by one … To his horror, Jack starts to suspect he may know who or perhaps more specifically what is responsible.”
Issue 14 will be available in the U.K. on Feb. 19, and in the United States on March 17.
