‘Robotech Remix #1′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Brenden Fletcher | Art by Elmer Damaso | Published by Titan Comics If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. That was my first thought when I heard that Titan were replacing the excellent Robotech book with Robotech Remix. Since 2015, Brian Wood, Simon Furman, Marco Turini and Hendry Prasetya routinely turned in outstanding […]

by Dean Fuller

Written by John Carpenter, Anthony Burch | Art by Philip Tan, Marc Deering, Danny Miki, Jonathan Glapion | Published by DC Comics It’s always nice when a small time villain like The Joker gets his own spotlight issue.

‘The Batman’s Grave #1′ Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Warren Ellis | Art by Bryan Hitch, Kevin Nowlan | Published by DC Comics This was impossible to not pick up.

‘Lex Luthor: Year of the Villain #1′ Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jason Latour | Art by Bryan Hitch, Andrew Currie | Published by DC Comics Speaking as a, ahem, more mature fanboy I have got quite jaded of late with all the crossovers, mega events, ‘end of everything you know’ type stuff.

‘Batman: Nightwalker’ Graphic Novel Review (DC Ink)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Stuart Moore, Marie Lu | Art by Chris Wildgoose | Published by DC Ink | Format: Paperback, 208pp The title of this graphic novel may seem familiar to some, and it should.

‘Age of Resistance: Supreme Leader Snoke #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Tom Taylor | Art by Leonard Kirk, Cory Hamscher | Published by Marvel Comics Marvel, obviously directed by parent company Disney, are sure getting their money’s worth from Star Wars.

‘Batman Damned’ Graphic Novel Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Brian Azzarello | Art by Lee Bermejo | Published by DC Black Label | Format: Hardcover, 192pp DC Black Label, which still sounds to me like a perfectly fine Scotch, is an imprint of DC designed to showcase more mature takes on DC characters. To my mind Vertigo already did that back in […]

‘Doctor Who: The Thirteenth Doctor #12′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jody Houser | Art by Rachael Stott | Published by Titan Comics With me this book has always been a strange one. Although a Doctor Who fan, I didn’t enjoy the most recent Dr Who TV series. I felt the writing was average, I didn’t really take to this incarnation of The Doctor, […]

by Dean Fuller

Written by Simon Furman | Art by Hendry Prasetya | Published by Titan Comics I’m still mightily impressed that, 24 issues in, this book not only continues to please long term and casual fan alike, but that it also can still throw surprises at us.

‘Harley Quinn: Breaking Glass’ Graphic Novel Review (DC Ink)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Mariko Tamaki | Art by Steve Pugh | Published by DC Ink Most reviews tend to start with a positive, so I’ll buck the trend. I don’t really Like Harley Quinn. There, I said it. Although currently the darling of some fans and a patron saint of female cosplayers, I find the character […]

by Dean Fuller

Written by Mike Mignola, Scott Allie | Art by Christopher Mitten | Published by Dark Horse Comics I still can’t believe that Hellboy first appeared way back in 1993, a full 26 years ago.

‘Marvel Tales Featuring X-Men #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller
