‘X-Men Legends #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Roy Thomas | Art by Dave Wachter | Published by Marvel Comics Let’s be honest, these new stories that slot into old continuity have been very hit and miss. They get a lot of goodwill from the nostalgia crowd (guilty as charged) but don’t always do enough to really merit their existence. Although […]

‘Ian Fleming’s James Bond 007 #1’ Review (Dynamite)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Phillip Kennedy Johnson | Art by Marco Finnegan | Published by Dynamite Entertainment I must be on something of a subconscious James Bond kick at the moment. I’ve just finished re-watching the Daniel Craig Bond films, and then this book caught my eye. Dynamite’s had the rights to do James Bond for a […]

‘Dark Crisis #3’ Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Joshua Williamson | Art by Daniel Sampere, Daniel Henriques, Danny Miki | Published by DC Comics The best way to describe this book is the comic book equivalent of a summer popcorn action movie. Doesn’t lend itself to a whole lot of navel gazing analysis, but there are a lot of explosions, action […]

‘Superman: Space Age #1’ Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Mark Russell | Art by Mike Allred | Published by DC Comics A new Superman number one issue? Oh, go on then. One with a connection to the fabled Crisis on Infinite Earths? Definitely go on then. Mark Russell writing and Mike Allred drawing? You had me at Superman. This book genuinely intrigued […]

‘The Mandalorian #1’ Review (Marvel Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Rodney Barnes | Art by Georges Jeanty, Karl Story | Published by Marvel Comics It says something for just how good The Mandalorian TV show is that I was amazed when I read that this was the first appearance of Mando in a comic. He feels so familiar now, so much a part […]

‘Daredevil #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Chip Zdarsky | Art by Marco Checchetto | Published by Marvel Comics I can’t remember the last time I reviewed a Daredevil book which, on the face of it, is unusual. Daredevil is one of my top three Marvel characters, and one I’ve been a huge fan of since the late 70’s/ early […]

‘Dark Crisis #2’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Joshua Williamson | Art by Daniel Sampere | Published by DC Comics I enjoyed the first issue of this book but did say in my review of that one that it was very much the introduction issue, so story took second place to establishing all the pieces on the board. It was still […]

‘Sins of the Black Flamingo #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Andrew Wheeler | Art by Travis Moore | Published by Image Comics This was a purely random pick-up from me, but one with some logic attached. Firstly, it’s Image, and lately that has been quite the mark of quality. There have been some great books coming out from them of late, and Marvel […]

‘The Variants #1’ Review (Marvel Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Gail Simone | Art by Phil Noto | Published by Marvel Comics This is one of those books that knew it would be taking our money from the very start. Firstly, its multiverse stuff. That’s gold at the moment. Secondly, it’s got everyone’s favourite bad girl Jessica Jones as the star. I suspect […]

‘New Fantastic Four #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Peter David | Written by Alan Robinson | Published by Marvel Comics Everyone loves a supergroup, and that’s as true in comics as it is in any other field. Back in 1991, the biggest characters at Marvel were Gray Hulk, Wolverine (of course), Ghost Rider, and Spider-Man. Punisher too, but that version of […]

‘The Flash #783’ Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jeremy Adams | Art by Amancay Nahuelpan | Published by DC Comics If I had to review just The Flash and Nightwing books every month it wouldn’t bother me in the least. Both are great reads, both are consistently entertaining, and both manage both fan service and engaging storylines for new readers. The […]

‘Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jackson Lanzing, Collin Kelly | Art by Carmen Carnero | Published by Marvel Comics Been a while since I last checked in on a Captain America book, mainly because there’s so much other stuff going on comics-wise Cap’s become old news. No new Captain America movie/tv stuff (not including Sam Wilson of course) […]

Written by Celeste Bronfman | Art by Jose Maria Beroy, David Cabeza | Published by Titan Comics Rivers of London is always at its best when it is adding something new to something that already exists. A fresh take on something, making you look at something in a different way, introducing a new level to […]

‘Dark Crisis #1’ Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Joshua Williamson | Art by Daniel Sampere | Published by DC Comics Will there ever come a time when DC will retire the ‘Crisis’ label for whatever universe-shattering, er, crisis is just around the corner? I doubt it. I guess it’s the comic book equivalent of a movie franchise in some ways. Let’s […]

‘Action Comics Annual 2022’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Phillip Kennedy Johnson, Si Spurrier | Art by Dale Eaglesham, Ian Churchill | Published by DC Comics I had an argument not long ago with a friend of mine who tried to persuade me that there were simply no new stories about Superman left to tell. I’m a huge Superman fan of course, […]

Written by K Perkins, Mellow Brown | Art by Fernando Dagnino | Published by Titan Comics So, here we are. The final issue in the book that promised to show us the origins of the Blade Runner unit. It’s been quite the ride getting here. At first, I wasn’t entirely sure how the story, set […]

‘Nightwing #92’ Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Tom Taylor | Art by Bruno Redondo | Published by DC Comics These days you can get your comics info in all manner of ways. Publisher previews, sneak peeks from creators themselves, industry exposes, and so on. I put the greatest trust in the good old-fashioned word of mouth. Most of the books […]

‘Savage Avengers #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by David Pepose | Art by Carlos Magno | Published by Marvel Comics Some books you don’t need, you don’t even want, until someone thinks them up and you think ‘oh yes’. If that involves Conan the Barbarian front and centre on the cover then even better. We are, of course, talking about Savage […]

‘Eight Billion Genies #1’ Review (Image Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jonathan Hickman, Murewa Ayodele, Marc Guggenheim | Art by Chris Bachalo, Dotun Akande, Jorge Fornes | Published by Marvel Comics Someone’s clearly flavour of the month right now. Moon Knight was always one of those second-tier characters with a small but loyal fan base. He’s proved a remarkably easy to use blank canvas […]

‘Flashpoint Beyond #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Geoff Johns, Jeremy Adams, Tim Sheridan | Art by Xermanico, Mikel Janin | Published by DC Comics Wait a cotton-picking minute. Flashpoint? Wasn’t that all just a well-received set of stories purely thought up to give a decent lead into the New 52? Sure, the Thomas Wayne Batman hung around, but that reality […]
