IDW to Discontinue Doctor Who Comics

Comic book publishing firm IDW has announced that it's going to discontinue its Doctor Who range at the end of the year. IDW has been publishing comics for the 10th and 11th Doctors since 2007. The series is set to go out with a bang, though. The finale is going to be a super-size edition, featuring the Doctor journeying into our universe!
In this special one-shot story, a strange force flings the TARDIS and the Doctor into our own universe! Once here, the Doctor encounters a 10-year-old girl who happens to be a huge fan of the Doctor Who TV show. The Doctor grapples with being a fictional character as well as and a monster lurking at the girl’s school on the way to coming face-to-face with the actor who portrays him, Matt Smith!
It's unknown who will take over the Doctor Who comic publishing. In the official press release, they told us to expect an announcement soon. Given the popularity of the series, BBC Worldwide will want to find someone soon.
