‘Peepland #4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Christa Faust, Gary Phillips | Art by Andrea Camerini | Published by Titan Comics Three issues behind us, and things have really started to move forward at speed. Although the central story follows sex worker Roxy and on/off boyfriend Nick Zero, and the bad guys in pursuit of the tape they possess showing […]

‘Mycroft Holmes #5′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Raymond Obstfeld | Art by Joshua Cassara | Published by Titan Comics This being Issue 5 means this is the last issue, in these days of “5 issues make the perfect graphic novel collection size”. Sometimes that artificial restriction does impact on the story, as pacing goes noticeably awry when too […]

‘Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor #3.2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Rob Williams | Art by Leandro Casco, Wellington Diaz | Published by Titan Comics What a great start to year three last issue was. Rob Williams brought a real breath of fresh air to the book, and I especially enjoyed the little tongue in cheek pop at Brexit, delivered in typically Whovian style. […]

‘Assassin’s Creed: Uprising #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Alex Paknadel, Dan Watters | Art by Jose Holder | Published by Titan Comics There’s been times recently I feel as though I’m in an Animus myself. What with finally getting around to playing Assassin’s Creed IV on my PS4, going to see the Assassin’s Creed movie, reading the Black Flag novelization, and […]

‘Triggerman #5′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Matz, Walter Hill | Art by Jef | Published by Titan Comics So, just as with the films it is so clearly inspired by, we come to issue 5 and the closing act. Triggerman Roy Nash has been the classic anti-hero. He’s an average guy who just happens to be a hitman. Although […]

‘Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor #2.14′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Robbie Morrison | Art by Rachel Stott | Published by Titan Comics Robbie Morrison’s arrival has seen this book go from middle of the pack to one of the front runners. His first story arc didn’t put a foot wrong, and he created quite the star turn in Julie D’Aubigny. With the slightly […]

‘Rivers of London: Black Mould #4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics Some people don’t like too much humour in their reading, be it science fiction, horror, etc. They seem to think it dilutes the effectiveness of the genre. I tend to think the opposite. Very few things in life, entertainment […]

‘Masked #3′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Serge Lehman | Art by Stephane Crety, Julien Hugonnard-Bert | Published by Titan Comics Masked is another of those handpicked books by the Titan editorial team from the vast material out there in Europe. Usually lacking any character or creator recognition, these books have to get by on good looks alone, so you […]

‘Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor #3.1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Rob Williams | Art by I.N.J Culbard | Published by Titan Comics Year 3, in publishing terms, has come for The Eleventh Doctor. A series that I haven’t exactly disliked, but not one I feel has been great either. Lacking a little of that timey-wimey magic, which for this incarnation is criminal indeed. […]

‘The Mummy #2 and #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Peter Milligan | Art by Ronilson Freire | Published by Titan/Hammer Comics Where does time go? Before I managed to read and review issue 2, issue 3 has popped up. I’ll hopefully double my enjoyment by reading and reviewing both together. Peter Milligan put an interesting little twist on his reinvention of The […]

‘Doctor Who: The Third Doctor #4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Paul Cornell | Art by Christopher Jones | Published by Titan Comics This series has been a rare case of when, occasionally, style over substance is not a problem. Although the storyline has been perfectly fine, what has made this book work so well is the affection for the characters and the era. […]

‘Assassin’s Creed Templars #9′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Dennis Calero | Art by Dennis Calero | Published by Titan Comics Assassin’s Creed Templars #9 brings both some good news and some bad news it seems. The bad news is that this issue will be the final one of the series. That, for me, is a real shame as this has been […]

‘Hook Jaw #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Si Spurrier | Art by Conor Boyle | Published by Titan Comics Well this was a blast from the past last month. Although Hook Jaw has something of a cult status in British comics, the strip itself has not been seen for many a year. Originally the star of Action weekly comic in […]

‘Doctor Who: The Ninth Doctor #9′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Cavan Scott | Art by Adriana Melo | Published by Titan Comics Although this title has in general been a little underwhelming, there have been moments that make you think it’s just about to turn the corner, that it’s going to go on a run of fine issues. The previous story arc was […]

‘The Chimera Brigade #4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Serge Lehman, Fabrice Colin | Art by Gess | Published by Titan Comics The Chimera Brigade, so far, has been a little schizophrenic in that it has consistently been gorgeous to look at, but lacking anything of substance in terms of consistent story and plot when scrutinised too closely. There are plenty of […]

‘Peepland #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Christa Faust, Gary Phillips | Art by Andrea Camerini | Published by Titan Comics The first two issues of this title really took me by surprise as I was kind of expecting not to like it. T&A has always sold to a certain demographic, and I thought this was a case of making […]

‘Triggerman #4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Matz, Walter Hill | Art by Jef | Published by Titan Comics Triggerman so far has been a very nice ride indeed, throwing the reader into the world of ‘Machine Gun’ Roy Nash, a triggerman (a hit man to you and me) for the Mob. Every page so far has wallowed in its […]

‘Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor #2.13′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Robbie Morrison | Art by Mariano Laclaustra | Published by Titan Comics Robbie Morrison and Mariano Laclaustra’s arrival on this title has been like a breath of the sweetest air. Up to their arrival three issues ago, the book felt like it was struggling a little, lacking a little of that Who magic […]

‘Assassin’s Creed #14′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Anthony Del Col, Conor McCreery | Art by Neil Edwards | Published by Titan Comics So here we are, the final issue of the title that launched Titan’s Assassin’s Creed stable of books. Fourteen issues seems way too short, but in this era of continually new and defined story arcs, continually new number […]

‘Rivers of London: Black Mould #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel | Art by Lee Sullivan | Colour by Luis Guerrero | Published by Titan Comics This story arc has so far been outstanding stuff. Full of fabulously snarky dialogue, police procedural, magic, and a generous dose of humour and tongue firmly planted in cheek. The black mould of the […]

‘Doctor Who: The 9th Doctor #8′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Cavan Scott | Art by Cris Bolson | Published by Titan Comics I’ve been trying to like this book more than I currently do. The pieces are all there, but they just don’t seem to be working well together. The Ninth Doctor, Rose Tyler and Captain Jack Harkness is as strong a tandem […]

‘Assassin’s Creed Last Decendants: Locus #4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ian Edgington | Art by Caspar Wijngaard | Published by Titan Comics Next year is a big year for Assassin’s Creed, with the movie coming out and probably another game or two, so the job of the comics, prose books, statues etc is to keep the brand active, and keep it popular. The […]
