Doctor Who was a monthly reprint publication published by Marvel Comics, re-printing Doctor Who Magazine comics stories featuring the Fourth and Fifth Doctors. It was published from October 1984 to August 1986 and priced $1.50.

Background

Following the positive feedback to the Doctor's comic strip stories as featured in Marvel Premiere (Issues 57-60)]], a separate title called simply Doctor Who was launched in the USA and ran for 23 issues. Its first issue featured the first installment of The Iron Legion featuring the Fourth Doctor The series concluded with Lunar Lagoon featuring the Fifth Doctor and introducing Gus.

The American Doctor Who title featured new artwork on its covers. The publication also included some new illustrations and background feature articles, along with a letters page.

For the first 14 issues, the publication utilized a unique version of the Doctor Who logo which combined the "diamond" motif of the Fourth Doctor era with the lettering used from 1963-66. Beginning with issue 15, the comic switched to using the then-current "neon tube" logo of the Fifth Doctor.
