‘Rivers of London: Cry Fox #4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Andrew Cartmel, Ban Aaronovitch | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics To all good arcs an end must come, and the Cry Fox arc reaches its conclusion with this issue. It’s misdirected me a couple of times, which is a good way to keep us jaded readers on our toes, […]

‘Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor #3.12′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Richard Dinnick | Art by Pasquale Qualano | Published by Titan Comics I’ve heard a rumour or two that The Twelfth Doctor’s book may not be regenerating for a fourth year. I hope that’s not the case, as I think it’s been one of the stronger titles. Yes, the Twelfth Doctor isn’t the […]

‘Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor #3.13′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Nick Abadzis | Art by Giorgia Sposito | Published by Titan Comics This being the final arc of The Tenth Doctor’s Year Three adventures, it seems Nick Abadzis has saved the best for last. So far this has been a fine storyline. The first two parts of ‘The Good Companion’ have seen the […]

‘Robotech #6′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Simon Furman | Art by Marco Turini | Published by Titan Comics Last issue saw Brian Wood passing the Robotech torch on to Simon Furman, although with a plotting credit for last issue and this Wood holds Furman’s hand a little as he gets up to speed on the book. If you hadn’t […]

‘Rivers of London: Cry Fox #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Andrew Cartmel, Ben Aaronovitch | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics Always a pleasure when a new issue of one of my favourite books drops. I read many comics every month, and some I read through a sense of completion rather than a sense of enjoyment, but can honestly say […]

‘Fighting American #4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Gordon Rennie | Art by Duke Mighten, PC De La Fuente | Published by Titan Comics This book has been ridiculously good. Smart, funny, sassy, and all delivered in a fantastically deadpan style. Fighting American and Speedboy are endearing with their naivety and adherence to their outdated moral and heroic code, just as […]

‘Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor #3.13′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Alex Paknadel, Rob Williams | Art by JB Bastos, Luiz Campello | Published by Titan Comics So here we are, the last issue of Year Three of The Eleventh Doctor. The year has been dominated mostly by the ongoing saga of The Sapling, and the pursuit by The Scream. It’s been a fun […]

‘Minky Woodcock: The Girl Who Handcuffed Houdini #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Cynthia Von Buhler | Art by Cynthia Von Buhler | Published by Titan Comics The first issue of this book I labelled under both ‘quirky’ and ‘well, that was a pleasant surprise’. It’s certainly not a book for everyone, but the Hard Case imprint logo should tell you that anyway. Creator/Writer/Artist Cynthia von […]

‘Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor #3.12′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Nick Abadzis | Art by Giorgia Sposito | Published by Titan Comics Last issue saw a promising start to a new story arc, ‘The Good Companion’. In the past I’ve found Nick Abadzis’ Who stories a bit mixed, though more hit than miss. Of late though he has been writing especially interesting stuff, […]

‘Penny Dreadful #8′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Chris King | Art by Jesus Hervas | Published by Titan Comics Penny Dreadful has to be one of the toughest books currently out there to recap. Not only is every issue absolutely crammed to the brim with story, but Chris King weaves multiple threads over many issues, many of which began life […]

‘Dan Dare #4′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Peter Milligan | Art by Albert Foche | Published by Titan Comics With this issue the first story arc of the Dan Dare relaunch comes to a close. Or reimagining I guess, as Peter Milligan has chosen to change the relationship between Dan and The Mekon. At least on the surface. What I’ve […]

by Dean Fuller

Tis’ the season to write Top Ten lists, as you all well know. Don’t roll your eyes, you know you expect it. I am nothing if not a slave to fashion. I have picked out my personal favourite ten titles of the many books I have read and reviewed this year. You may well disagree […]

‘Robotech #5′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Simon Furman | Art by Marco Turini | Published by Titan Comics The common practice these days when a new book is launched, or a tired property is relaunched, is to attach a top creator to it, have him or her do their bit to get it off the ground, then pass the […]

‘Fighting American #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Gordon Rennie | Art by Duke Mighten, PC De La Fuente | Published by Titan Comics If I had to pick a book to be the surprise package of the year, it could very well be this one. Fighting American as a book has always struggled, as creators have often fallen between two […]

‘Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor #3.10′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Richard Dinnick | Art by Francesco Manna | Published by Titan Comics I’ve come to learn that anything with Richard Dinnick writing it has some quality to it. Either it’s a bit quirky, mines an aspect of Dr Who others have left untouched or forgotten, or just excels at dialogue and character work. […]

‘Dan Dare #3′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Peter Milligan | Art by Alberto Foche | Published by Titan Comics If you’re still here for issue 3 then , like me, you’ve been enjoying Peter Milligan’s re-imagining of Dan Dare and his world. Some of the changes have been very slight, just a tweak here, an update there, but the biggest […]

‘Quarry’s War #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Max Allan Collins | Art by Szymon Kudranski | Published by Hard Case Crime/Titan Comics When the Hard Case Crime imprint arrived on the scene, it wasn’t a question of if, but when, they published something by Max Allan Collins. Collins is something of a star in several fields, but is probably best […]

Written by Alex Paknadel, Rob Williams | Art by Ivan Rodriguez, JB Bastos, Luiz Campello | Published by Titan Comics Seems an age since I reviewed The Eleventh Doctor’s solo shenanigans. He was quite pivotal in The Lost Dimension crossover of course, but for a character with their own book there’s no place like home. […]

‘Doctor Radar #1′ Review (Statix Press)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Noel Simsolo | Art by Bezian | Published by Statix Press/Titan Comics Although my comic book tastes have always primarily been skewed to American comics, and especially Marvel and DC superhero titles, I am always happy to have a dabble outside of my comfort zone. I think it’s good on a personal level […]

‘Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor #3.11′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Nick Abadzis | Art by Giorgia Sposito | Published by Titan Comics Well, multi part Doctor Who stories are apparently like buses. Just last issue I was saying how refreshing it was to have a multi issue storyline focused on the one book, as ‘Vortex Butterflies’ wrapped up last issue, rather than just […]

‘Minky Woodcock: The Girl Who Handcuffed Houdini #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Cynthia Von Buhler | Art by Cynthia Von Buhler | Published by Titan Comics Sometimes we pick up books and comics because they feature favourite characters of ours, or they feature writers and/or artists that we like a lot. That’s my normal practice, though of course as a reviewer I probably see a […]
