Doctor Who Cover Inspired By Morrissey

I got an email today from Titan Comics with the headline: This Charming Doctor! Morrissey Inspired Doctor Who Comic Cover. Since this was about Doctor Who I immediately took it to mean David Morrissey who played Jackson Lake, the man who thought he was The Next Doctor. Oh, and he played the Governor in some little show called The Walking Dead. So I figured this Simon Myers variant cover features Lake….

Nope.

Turns out the inspiration for the cover is the singer Morrissey and more specifically an inside cover photo from the Smiths’ album the Queen is Dead. The photo, seen below, shows the band posing in front of the Salford Lad’s Club… which is where we find the Tenth Doctor as played by David Tennant standing.

The cover is for Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor #2.6.
