Marvel Premiere was a comic book series published in the United States by Marvel Comics in the late 1970s-early 1980s. For four of its issues published in 1980 and 1981, Marvel Premiere featured reprints of Fourth Doctor Doctor Who comic strips from Doctor Who Magazine (published by Marvel's UK branch). These strips differed from the UK originals in that they had colour added. New covers were also created for each issue. Among those artists whose work is showcased in these issues is Dave Gibbons who went on to co-create the groundbreaking graphic novel Watchmen.
The Marvel Premiere issues were considered test runs for a potential monthly Doctor Who comic. Such a comic, entitled Doctor Who, eventually launched in 1984 and continued the DWM reprints from where Marvel Premiere left off.
