‘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.

‘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 […]

‘Millenium: The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo #1′ Review

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 […]

‘Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor #3.6′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by George Mann | Art by I.N.J Culbard | Published by Titan Comics It says a lot for the editorial team on this title that even though it has already, in its mere six issues, had a multitude of writers and artists it still manages to continue an interesting ongoing central plot while building […]

‘Penny Dreadful #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Chris King | Art by Jesus Hervas | Published by Titan Comics To copy a little American sports vernacular, this series has been hitting it out of the park with its first two issues. A perfect continuation from the three seasons we enjoyed on TV, this ‘season four’ has not missed a beat. […]

‘Rivers of London: Detective Stories #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics It was three long months ago when I reviewed the last Rivers of London issue, the final part of the Black Mould story arc. That was fine stuff. In fact, aside from a couple of issues during the ‘Night […]

‘Doctor Who: Ghost Stories #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by George Mann | Art by Dennis Calero | Published by Titan Comics Doctor Who: Ghost Stories snuck up on me a bit, ready as I was to dislike it even before I started it. It has done that rare thing which is to surpass the material that preceded and inspired it. George Mann […]

‘Little Nightmares #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by John Shackelford | Art by Aaron Alexovich | Published by Titan Comics Cross pollination is all the rage at the moment. Games into films into books into TV shows into comics, rinse and repeat. This obviously has good and bad consequences. On the good side, if we like something a lot it’s nice […]

‘Doctor Who: The Ninth Doctor #13′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Cavan Scott | Art by Cris Bolson | Published by Titan Comics The last couple of issues have been great fun, with the Ninth Doctor taking on himself. Well, not exactly himself but an evil doppelganger made up of all the bad qualities from both him and all his previous incarnations. While Tara […]

‘Assassin’s Creed Uprising #4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Alex Paknadel, Dan Watters | Art by Jose Holder | Published by Titan Comics Assassin’s Creed Uprising was always an interesting idea, melding together characters from other Assassin’s Creed titles. As Assassin’s Creed has mainly been a single player type of adventure, which the other titles mainly kept in line with, this is more […]

‘Anno Dracula 1895: Seven Days in Mayhem #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Kim Newman | Art by Paul McCaffrey | Published by Titan Comics This has been great fun so far, a nice blend of interesting story, familiar though slightly different literary characters, and a whole load of alternate universe world building. Hugely entertaining stuff. This series pretty much had me at Queen Victoria marrying […]

Written by George Mann | Art by Mariano Laclaustra | Published by Titan Comics Normal service is resumed as, after last issue’s very good stand alone story , we return back to part 2 of George Mann’s ‘Beneath the Waves’ arc. It is always a little jarring when an ongoing storyline, such as this, is […]
