‘Assassin’s Creed: Awakening #1 and #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Takashi Yano | Art by Kenji Oiwa | Published by Titan Comics Not another Assassin’s Creed spin-off I hear you cry. To be fair, there are an increasing number of Assassin’s Creed titles starting to hog shelf space these days. What makes that ok in my mind is that they are not just […]

‘Hook Jaw #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Si Spurrier | Art by Conor Boyle | Published by Titan Comics Titan, like most of us, clearly think you can never have enough sharks in popular entertainment, and have dusted down another very niche property. Hook Jaw was originally one of the stars of British weekly Action, one of the most legendary […]

‘Mycroft Holmes #4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Raymond Obstfeld | Art by Joshua Cassara | Published by Titan Comics This has been a great book so far, and initially surprising on two levels. One, it is co-written by basketball legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Two, it stars Mycroft Holmes, not a seemingly natural choice for the star of his own […]

‘Triggerman #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Matz, Walter Hill | Art by Jef | Published by Titan Comics The first two issues of this book have been extremely cinematic in design, from the source material that inspired the story, to the way the panels are used as camera shots, to the overall tone and style of the writing and […]

‘The Chimera Brigade #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Serge Lehman, Fabrice Colin | Art by Gess | Published by Titan Comics This so far has been a book that is doing ok, but one that I desperately want to up its game and be outstanding. Is has all the pieces in place, it just hasn’t quite clicked for me yet. Tons […]

‘Assassin’s Creed: Templars #8′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Dennis Calero | Art by Dennis Calero | Published by Titan Comics Dennis Calero has been an outstanding job on this second arc of the Templars book, which is just as well considering he writes, pencils, inks and colours it. That’s one heck of a workload, so you have to assume this is […]

‘Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor #2.15′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Si Spurrier | Art by Simon Fraser | Published by Titan Comics So here we are, the final issue in Year Two of the Eleventh Doctor. Obviously that doesn’t affect The Doctor much, as Year Three begins almost immediately and he will find new escapades aplenty to get tied up in. What is […]

‘Peepland #1 and #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Christa Faust, Gary Phillips | Art by Andrea Camerini | Published by Titan Comics Sex sells, right? Well, that’s what Titan and Hard Case Crime are hoping with the launch of this new series. Co-written by Christa Faust, who as a former fetish model and dominatrix knows of what she speaks, and Gary […]

‘Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor #2.12′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Robbie Morrison | Art by Mariano Laclaustra | Published by Titan Comics Last issue saw the arrival of Robbie Morrison on the book, and boy did he come flying out of the creative gates. Likewise for new artist Mariano Laclaustra. They threw us back in time to 1695 France, where Gothic shenanigans aplenty […]

‘The Adventures of Puss in Boots: Amazing Tails’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Chris Cooper, Max Davidon, Alex Matthews | Art by Egle Bartolini, Maria Sanapo, Dave Alvarez | Published by Titan Comics Well this looked a little different from my normal comics reading diet. Not a grown man in spandex to be seen for sure, although a cat in boots probably trumps that anyway. Puss […]

‘Doctor Who: The 9th Doctor #7′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Cavan Scott | Art by Cris Bolson | Published by Titan Comics With some of the Who titles hitting it out of the park right now, one or two of the other Who titles are struggling a little to keep up. The Tenth Doctor’s book springs to mind, as does this Ninth Doctor […]

‘Assassin’s Creed #13′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Anthony Del Col, Conor McCreery | Art by Neil Edwards | Published by Titan Comics The Assassin’s Creed seemingly ever expanding stable of books is of such strong quality that I wait to see every month if they can maintain that quality, or if one of the titles start to dip noticeably. So […]

‘Doctor Who: The Third Doctor #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Paul Cornell | Art by Christopher Jones | Published by Titan Comics The first two issues of this series have had me dribbling with excitement and nostalgia. Yes, not the most edifying sight you’ll ever imagine, but true. Paul Cornell has somehow managed to bottle the feel and look of not only the […]

‘Masked #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Serge Lehman | Art by Stephane Crety, Julien Hugonnard-Bert | Published by Titan Comics I quite enjoy going into something with no idea of what it is or what it is about, and it not having the safety net of brand recognition to help it either. It has to stand or fall on […]

‘Assassin’s Creed: Templars #7′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Dennis Calero | Art by Dennis Calero | Published by Titan Comics I like the way that although this second story arc for the book, ‘Cross of War’, is obviously it’s own animal, it has directly come out of the groundwork laid in that first 5 issue arc introducing the Black Cross. The […]

‘Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor #2.11′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Robbie Morrison | Art by Mariano Laclaustra | Published by Titan Comics So just as I warm to a title I had previously been having a bit of a struggle getting into to, they change the creative team. Typical. If this is a good or bad move I will have to reserve judgement […]

‘Assassin’s Creed Last Decendants: Locus #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ian Edginton | Art by Caspar Wijngaard | Published by Titan Comics This series has been great fun through its first two issues, with an interesting scenario and cast, sparkling dialogue, and some fun little touches. Last issue we were left on quite the knife edge when the main character, Pinkerton agent Tommy […]

‘Rivers of London: Black Mould #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel | Art by Lee Sullivan | Colour by Luis Guerrero | Published by Titan Comics Last issue, the first of this new ‘Black Mould’ storyline was an absolute cracker. None of the story arcs have disappointed of course, but this really had the feel of a creative team hitting […]

‘Triggerman #1 and #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Matz, Walter Hill | Art by Jef | Published by Titan Comics Who doesn’t like a little bit of noir and violent crime in their reading material? Certainly not me. Comics in the 1930′s in part sprang out of those old crime and noir pulps, so the genre has been tied to the […]

‘Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor #2.15′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Nick Abadzis | Art by Giorgia Sposito | Published by Titan Comics As there are so many Dr Who books to choose from now, it is natural to have favourites. This has not been one of mine over time, which is a shame as the Tenth Doctor is one of my favourites. I […]

‘Assassin’s Creed Last Descendants: Locus #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ian Edginton | Art by Caspar Wijngaard | Published by Titan Comics As the Assassins Creed universe continues to expand with more and more comic book series, it runs the risk of producing a dud at some stage. So far, all the books have been – at worst – good solid reads, and […]

‘The Chimera Brigade #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Serge Lehman, Fabrice Colin | Art by Gess | Published by Titan Comics While not a complete success, the first issue of this series last month was interesting enough to make me want to come back again. It was easy to see the influences of Mike Mignola and Alan Moore, especially through books […]
