‘Rivers of London: Water Weed #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Andrew Cartmel | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics Seems to have been an absolute age since there has been a new Rivers of London book, and looking back the last issue of the ‘Cry Fox’ arc was back in February. How dare Cartmel and Aaronovitch have any time off. […]

‘Doctor Who: The Seventh Doctor #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Andrew Cartmel | Art by Christopher Jones | Published by Titan Comics Now I’m willing to bet that among the many incarnations of The Doctor, the Sylvester McCoy Seventh Doctor is not up there as one of your favourites. Personally, I never really took to him. Too goofy for me, achingly intent to […]

‘Penny Dreadful #10′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Chris King | Art by Jesus Hervas | Published by Titan Comics I recall reading somewhere that Chris King said that he really loved these characters, which as the Executive Producer of the TV show you would expect him to say. He does, however have a funny way of showing it. The characters […]

‘Fighting American: The Ties That Bind #4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Gordon Rennie | Art by Andie Tong | Published by Titan Comics Always a bittersweet moment when we reach the final issue of each arc, as we do here with ‘The Ties That Bind’ storyline. It’s been, of course, a lot of fun. So much so, that it got me thinking that Fighting […]

‘The Prisoner #2′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Peter Milligan | Art by Colin Lorimer | Published by Titan Comics What a great re-launch of this property issue 1 was. Any doubts there were about The Prisoner, the epitome of late 1960′s quirky TV along with shows like The Avengers (that’s Steed and Mrs. Peel, not Iron Man and Captain America […]

‘Assassin’s Creed Origins #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Anthony Del Col | Art by PJ Kaiowa | Published by Titan Comics Still on the fence a little with this book so far. Sure, the writing and artwork are not bad, pretty good in fact, but so far I am not really seeing a story that had to be told. Once we […]

‘Robotech #9′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Simon Furman | Art by Marco Turini | Published by Titan Comics With Robotech #9, Simon Furman finally flies solo. Brian Wood’s four issue handover, where they shared billing as co-plotters, has finished and the book will stand or fall on Furman alone. So far, admittedly it may be a little too early […]

‘Fighting American: The Ties That Bind #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Gordon Rennie | Art by Andie Tong | Published by Titan Comics You know a book is that good when you struggle to find new compliments to pay it. This is effectively issue 7 of Fighting American, and every issue has been simply brilliant. Clever, witty, sassy, sarcastic you name it it probably […]

‘Action Comics #1000′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Various | Art by Various | Published by DC Comics DC Comics have of late been celebrating the 80th anniversary of both a flagship title, in Action Comics, and their flagship character, Superman. Both are, of course, fully worthy of such accolades. Action Comics has been continuously published since the dawn of the […]

‘Action Comics: 80 Years of Superman – Deluxe Edition’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Various | Art by Various | Published by DC Comics To paraphrase John Lennon, before Action Comics there was nothing. Action Comics was the comic book industry equivalent of the Big Bang. Prior to Action Comics you had comic books, but these were usually collections of previously published newspaper strips, repackaged to encourage […]

‘The Prisoner #1′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Peter Milligan | Art by Colin Lorimer | Published by Titan Comics You know something has a place in the national consciousness when it keeps reappearing every generation. The Prisoner has become just such a cult hit, its fans every bit as passionate as those of Star Trek or Star Wars for example. […]

‘Assassin’s Creed Origins #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Anthony Del Col | Art by PJ Kaiowa | Published by Titan Comics The historical angle has always been what has given Assassin’s Creed its unique ‘thing’, the clever weaving of historical fact with Assassin’s Creed fiction. Real people interacting with Creed created characters. Previous games in the relatively recent past have been […]

‘Penny Dreadful #9′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Chris King | Art by Jesus Hervas | Published by Titan Comics Well this has been a while coming. I reviewed issue 8 back in early January, so clearly the use of sadism isn’t just restricted to certain characters within the story. Chris King and Jesus Hervas, although clearly doing an absolutely brilliant […]

‘Minky Woodcock: The Girl Who Handcuffed Houdini #4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Cynthia Von Buhler | Art by Cynthia Von Buhler | Published by Titan Comics I’m still trying to work out where I stand on this series. I better hurry up I guess as this is the final issue. In general the story and art have been pretty good, with a skillful weaving of […]

‘Assassin’s Creed: Uprising #10′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Alex Paknadel, Dan Watters | Art by Jose Holder | Published by Titan Comics Seems like an age since the last time I reviewed this book, which is probably a good thing as it allows a reviewer to regain a little perspective. Although the book as a whole I like, I was getting […]

‘Fighting American: The Ties That Bind #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Gordon Rennie | Art by Andie Tong | Published by Titan Comics Last issue’s first issue of the book’s second arc was every bit as good as every issue of the first arc, and that’s saying something. The second album is always the most difficult, but Gordon Rennie just kept on doing what […]

‘Captain Kronos Vampire Hunter’ Graphic Novel Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Dan Abnett | Art by Tom Mandrake | Published by Titan Comics I managed to miss this when it first came out, in individual issues, so am pleased to see the collection arrive so I can finally give it a read. I’m probably an easy sell, as I’m a fan of both writer […]

‘Robotech #8′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Simon Furman | Art by Marco Turini | Published by Titan Comics Although Brian Wood and Simon Furman are still listed as co-plotters, each issue that comes seems to have Furman’s fingerprints on it more and more. For me, Brian Wood writes a purer story, focusing on the bigger picture, whereas Simon Furman […]

by Dean Fuller

Written by Richard Dinnick | Art by Pasquale Qualano | Published by Titan Comics Will he be returning? Still not sure if there will be a Season Four of the comic book adventures of The Twelfth Doctor, so this issue may well be it for the foreseeable future. Peter Capaldi’s Doctor was loved by the […]
