‘Anno Dracula 1895: Seven Days in Mayhem #5′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Kim Newman | Art by Paul McCaffrey | Published by Titan Comics I’ve really enjoyed this series so far, it has definitely had its own feel to it from the beginning. Kim Newman has crafted a bizarre yet semi-familiar world, full of bizarre, but semi-familiar characters. I am, of course, a bizarre and […]

‘Rivers of London: Detective Stories #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics This Detective Stories arc is a bit of a mixed bag so far. It is interesting in the sense we are getting snapshots of past cases, and of past relationships, notably that with previous partner Lesley May. Not so […]

‘Doctor Who: The Ninth Doctor #15′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Cavan Scott | Art by Cris Bolson, Adrian Melo | Published by Titan Comics The last couple of issues have been great fun, with Captain Jack both taking centre stage and driving the main plot forward. Last issue also turned a lot of what we thought we knew on its head. The dead […]

‘Assassin’s Creed: Uprising #6′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Alex Paknadel, Dan Watters | Art by Jose Holder | Published by Titan Comics I’ve ended up liking this book more than I initially thought I would do. Although not a total Assassin’s Creed fan boy I do have most the games, and enjoy pretty much all of them, and their strength has, […]

‘Freeway Fighter #4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Andi Ewington | Art by Simon Coleby | Published by Titan Comics Although Freeway Fighter hasn’t always hit the stride I hoped it would up to now, it’s been solidly entertaining and an amazingly fun nostalgia trip. Actually Andi Ewington and Simon Coleby could have easily coasted along on the fumes of nostalgia […]

‘Tekken #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Cavan Scott | Art by Andie Tong | Published by Titan Comics Last issue was an improvement on the first, which I thought didn’t deliver as much as it could have done, both story and character wise. These are characters that are not well developed beyond some archetypal qualities given them by the […]

‘Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor #3.7′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Nick Abadzis | Art by Giorgia Sposito, Iolanda Zanfardino | Published by Titan Comics Last issue had that nice, all over the place kind of feel, which suits The Doctor perfectly. We had all sorts of little things going on, such as a cameo from a certain future incarnation of The Doctor with […]

‘Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor #3.7′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by George Mann | Art by I.N.J Culbard | Published by Titan Comics I really enjoyed last issue overall, mainly for the fact that you can’t go wrong with any story centering around a large abandoned spaceship. It’s one of those classic sci-fi tropes that never gets old. Rather like Dr Who itself really. […]

‘Robotech #1′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Brian Wood | Art by Marco Turini | Published by Titan Comics Robotech is one of those names we have all heard of right? In fact, it’s probably one of those names that even non-fans have heard of, even if they have never watched an episode on TV, or read a comic book […]

‘Rivers of London: Detective Stories #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics Rivers of London continues to be one of the consistently best books out there month after month. It combines the best of both worlds, story wise. We get clear, defined story arc’s, which allow for anything and everything the […]

‘Doctor Who: The Ninth Doctor #14′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Cavan Scott | Art by Cris Bolson, Adrian Melo | Published by Titan Comics Last issue wasn’t a very good issue of Doctor Who. That’s not to say it wasn’t a good issue of course, because it wasn’t bad at all, but what it was was an issue of Jack Harkness, Time Agent. […]

‘Freeway Fighter #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Andi Ewington | Art by Simon Coleby | Published by Titan Comics The book really hit its stride last issue, after the first issue and its world building left me a little underwhelmed. The first issue was a case of style over substance, last issue was a case of style AND substance. Bella […]

‘Penny Dreadful #4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Chris King | Art by Jesus Hervas | Published by Titan Comics Well that went fast. We have reached the final issue of the first story arc somehow. If I have any criticism at all, and I have enjoyed this series far too much to do more than slightly nit-pick, it is that […]

‘Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor #3.5′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Richard Dinnick | Art by Brian Williamson | Published by Titan Comics It’s Bill. Bill who? Bill Potts. You know the one, the girl with the boy’s name who The Doctor met at the University he was teaching at. Bill makes her comic book debut somewhat ironically this issue just as we saw […]

‘Assassin’s Creed: Uprising #5′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Alex Paknadel, Dan Watters | Art by Jose Holder | Published by Titan Comics Assassin’s Creed as seen through a Jerry Bruckheimer lens is probably the best way to describe Assassin’s Creed: Uprising. Although the action stuff is actually good fun and nicely done, I must admit the purist in me misses the […]

‘Doctor Who: Ghost Stories #4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by George Mann | Art by Ivan Rodriguez | Published by Titan Comics All good things must come to an end, and this issue is the final issue of the Ghost Stories mini-series. Probably not a book that many in particular were clamouring for, it has proven to be a fun ride. Combining a […]

by Dean Fuller

Written by Sylvain Runberg | Art by Homs | Published by Titan Comics/Hard Case Crime Hard Case Crime have to date published some fantastic offerings, injecting a real sense of bringing something different to the table than most other publishers. Crime based yes, but also very cinematic, very stylised, and not afraid to take risks. […]

‘Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor #3.6′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Nick Abadzis | Art by Giorgia Sposito | Published by Titan Comics After last issue’s interlude adventure, we return to the main adventure that preceded it. What was that, I hear you cry. It was the wrap up of the Red Jade General storyline back in ancient China, with that way cool Red […]

‘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 […]
