‘Fantastic Four #35 (Legacy #680)’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Dan Slott, Mark Waid | Art by John Romita Jr., Paul Renauld | Published by Titan Comics I think I’ve mentioned before that I’ve been woefully neglectful when it comes to reviewing Fantastic Four books. It’s odd, as I really like the characters a lot. I still think the John Byrne years are […]

‘Blade Runner Origins #6’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by K Perkins, Mellow Brown | Art by Fernando Dagnino | Published by Titan Comics Always a great start when you can boast a Butch Guice cover, and a very nice cover at that. Cal Moreaux looks every bit the classic action hero. Which is funny, because he really isn’t. What he is, as […]

‘Dark Ages #1’ Review (Marvel Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Tom Taylor | Art by Iban Coello | Published by Marvel Comics I almost didn’t pick this up, as all the advance blurbs I had seen seemed to be promoting yet another ‘event of the month’ type thing. There’s only so many times you can go back to the well when it comes […]

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel | Art by Jose Maria Beroy | Published by Titan Comics So we’ve reached issue 3 of this particular story arc and it’s all been a little different to normal.

‘Superman ’78 #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Robert Venditti | Art by Wilfredo Torres | Published by DC Comics If ever there was a book I was guaranteed to review, it was this one. I cannot put into words how much I love the original Superman film, and the Christopher Reeve version of both Kal-El and Clark Kent. I first […]

‘Kang the Conqueror #1’ Review (Marvel Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Collin Kelly, Jackson Lanzing | Art by Carlos Magno | Published by Marvel Comics Kang has always been one of those villains that should be an absolute A-lister, right up there with Loki, Doctor Doom, Magneto and Kingpin. For some reason or other, he’s never quite got there. Sure he’s been a regular […]

‘Rivers of London: Monday Monday #2’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel | Art by Jose Maria Beroy | Published by Titan Comics As last issue showed, this arc was looking to be a little bit different, at least as first, by having Peter firmly in the background and having a minor character or two take centre stage. It worked very […]

‘Defenders #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Al Ewing | Art by Javier Rodriguez, Alvaro Lopez | Published by Marvel Comics Who doesn’t love The Defenders? Everyone loves an underdog, and the Defenders were the little team that could.

‘The Me You Love in the Dark #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Skottie Young | Art by Jorge Corona | Published by Image Comics The horror and supernatural genre is often a misunderstood one. People in general feel as though horror is a one trick pony, no subtlety, no clever thought or invention, just obvious gore and jumps cares. Just look at the lack of […]

‘Suicide Squad: Get Joker #1’ Review (DC Black Label)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Brian Azarello | Art by Alex Maleev | Published by DC Black Label Please don’t be a cheap cash-in, please don’t be a cheap cash in.

‘Marvel Action – Avengers: Off The Clock’ Graphic Novel Review (IDW)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Katie Cook | Art by Butch Mapa | Published by IDW Publishing | Format: Paperback, 144 pp Although we like to throw around terms like ‘graphic novels’ and ‘sequential art’ these days, comic strips and comic books were originally designed to be cheap and cheerful throwaway entertainment. The comic strips were designed to […]

Written by Jed Mackay | Art by Alessandro Cappuccio | Published by Marvel Comics Moon Knight is one of those characters that you always feel should be bigger than he is.

Written by Various | Art by Various | Published by Titan Comics I’ve said it many times in various reviews, but I’ve been a huge Captain America fan for over 40 years. Superman has always been my favourite character, but Captain America is a close second. I think it was growing up as a fan […]
