‘Anno Dracula 1895: Seven Days in Mayhem #4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Kim Newman | Art by Paul McCaffrey | Published by Titan Comics This has been a fun world to visit over the last 3 issues. Full of ‘new’ characters inspired by their classic literary counterparts, it is a new story that still feels strangely familiar. Kim Newman has pulled a Alan Moore by […]

‘Tekken #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Cavan Scott | Art by Andie Tong | Pubished by Titan Comics Tekken #1 ran the entire gauntlet of expectations and missed opportunities. There was a whole ton of nifty ideas floating around, but very little focus and very little flow to the story. A pretty complicated back story (good) gave way to […]

‘Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor #3.4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by George Mann | Art by Mariano Laclaustra | Published by Titan Comics Before I get going on the actual review, a quick mention for the fantastic covers that the Who titles have. All issues have multiple covers, ranging from photo covers, to fully painted, to cartoony. Once upon a time multiple covers were […]

‘Freeway Fighter #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Andi Ewington | Art by Simon Coleby | Published by Titan Comics A little style over substance last issue, or perhaps a book finding its feet and a writer finding his tone. Although the fighting fantasy books themselves are derivative of other genres, or ‘inspired by’ to be kinder, the format of multiple […]

‘Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor #3.6′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by George Mann | Art by I.N.J Culbard | Published by Titan Comics It says a lot for the editorial team on this title that even though it has already, in its mere six issues, had a multitude of writers and artists it still manages to continue an interesting ongoing central plot while building […]

‘Penny Dreadful #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Chris King | Art by Jesus Hervas | Published by Titan Comics To copy a little American sports vernacular, this series has been hitting it out of the park with its first two issues. A perfect continuation from the three seasons we enjoyed on TV, this ‘season four’ has not missed a beat. […]

‘Rivers of London: Detective Stories #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics It was three long months ago when I reviewed the last Rivers of London issue, the final part of the Black Mould story arc. That was fine stuff. In fact, aside from a couple of issues during the ‘Night […]

‘Doctor Who: Ghost Stories #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by George Mann | Art by Dennis Calero | Published by Titan Comics Doctor Who: Ghost Stories snuck up on me a bit, ready as I was to dislike it even before I started it. It has done that rare thing which is to surpass the material that preceded and inspired it. George Mann […]

‘Little Nightmares #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by John Shackelford | Art by Aaron Alexovich | Published by Titan Comics Cross pollination is all the rage at the moment. Games into films into books into TV shows into comics, rinse and repeat. This obviously has good and bad consequences. On the good side, if we like something a lot it’s nice […]

‘Doctor Who: The Ninth Doctor #13′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Cavan Scott | Art by Cris Bolson | Published by Titan Comics The last couple of issues have been great fun, with the Ninth Doctor taking on himself. Well, not exactly himself but an evil doppelganger made up of all the bad qualities from both him and all his previous incarnations. While Tara […]

‘Assassin’s Creed Uprising #4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Alex Paknadel, Dan Watters | Art by Jose Holder | Published by Titan Comics Assassin’s Creed Uprising was always an interesting idea, melding together characters from other Assassin’s Creed titles. As Assassin’s Creed has mainly been a single player type of adventure, which the other titles mainly kept in line with, this is more […]

‘Anno Dracula 1895: Seven Days in Mayhem #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Kim Newman | Art by Paul McCaffrey | Published by Titan Comics This has been great fun so far, a nice blend of interesting story, familiar though slightly different literary characters, and a whole load of alternate universe world building. Hugely entertaining stuff. This series pretty much had me at Queen Victoria marrying […]

‘Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor #3.3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by George Mann | Art by Mariano Laclaustra | Published by Titan Comics Normal service is resumed as, after last issue’s very good stand alone story , we return back to part 2 of George Mann’s ‘Beneath the Waves’ arc. It is always a little jarring when an ongoing storyline, such as this, is […]

‘Freeway Fighter #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Andi Ewington | Art by Simon Coleby | Published by Titan Comics I’m sure all of us of a certain age remember the Fighting Fantasy books series. I still have few on my nostalgia bookshelf in fact. Before the internet, social media, and online gaming, there weren’t that many avenues for escapism (I […]

‘Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor #3.5′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by James Peaty | Art by I.N.J. Culbard | Published by Titan Comics A whole lot of new this issue. New story arc, ‘Time of the Ood’, new writer in James Peaty and new artist in I.N.J Culbard. Although the last adventure was nicely wrapped up last issue, the ongoing plot thread of The […]

‘Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor #3.5′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by James Peaty | Art by Warren Pleece | Published by Titan Comics All change from last issue as we have another of those ‘interlude’ issues, where a different creative team fill in on the book for an issue. Having noticed something similar on other Doctor Who books, one could almost think they are […]

‘Tekken #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Cavan Scott | Art by Andie Tong | Published by Titan Comics Tekken is one of those names that I’m sure most people recognise, even those who don’t go in for gaming. Tekken has been around for over two decades, and I’m sure most of us have played a game or two over […]

‘Doctor Who: Ghost Stories #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by George Mann | Art by Pasquale Qualano | Published by Titan Comics I was a little bit hasty with my preconceptions of this book. A mini-series based on a Dr Who TV Christmas special that I didn’t particularly like looked doomed to failure, review wise. Instead George Mann served up a first issue […]

‘Penny Dreadful #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Chris King | Art by Jesus Hervas | Published by Titan Comics Well last issue was something of a cracker I think you’d agree. The first issue of this new series, and essentially Season 4 of the TV show, lived up to my already high expectations and then some. Chris King managed to […]

‘Hook Jaw #5′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Si Spurrier | Art by Conor Boyle | Published by Titan Comics Hook Jaw has had plenty of bite so far, a lot to sink our teeth into and a story easy to dive into. Also ideal for bad puns apparently. Joking aside, Si Spurrier has managed to put a fresh spin and […]

‘Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor #3.2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by James Peaty | Art by Warren Pleece | Published by Titan Comics Well this issue, ‘The Boy With the Displaced Smile’, is apparently an interlude adventure that The Doctor had before re-uniting with Hattie as we saw last issue. Officially, this is The Doctor’s mind going back to a previous adventure, even as […]

‘Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor #3.4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Nick Abadzis | Art by Giorgia Sposito, Arianna Florean | Published by Titan Comics Ah, The Tenth Doctor. Simultaneously one of my favourite incarnations of The Doctor, and one of my least favourite Dr Who books. A little harsh perhaps, as objectively it is always a pretty decent quality book, but stacked up […]
