‘Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor #3.1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Rob Williams | Art by I.N.J Culbard | Published by Titan Comics Year 3, in publishing terms, has come for The Eleventh Doctor. A series that I haven’t exactly disliked, but not one I feel has been great either. Lacking a little of that timey-wimey magic, which for this incarnation is criminal indeed. […]

‘The Mummy #2 and #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Peter Milligan | Art by Ronilson Freire | Published by Titan/Hammer Comics Where does time go? Before I managed to read and review issue 2, issue 3 has popped up. I’ll hopefully double my enjoyment by reading and reviewing both together. Peter Milligan put an interesting little twist on his reinvention of The […]

‘Doctor Who: The Third Doctor #4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Paul Cornell | Art by Christopher Jones | Published by Titan Comics This series has been a rare case of when, occasionally, style over substance is not a problem. Although the storyline has been perfectly fine, what has made this book work so well is the affection for the characters and the era. […]

‘Assassin’s Creed Templars #9′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Dennis Calero | Art by Dennis Calero | Published by Titan Comics Assassin’s Creed Templars #9 brings both some good news and some bad news it seems. The bad news is that this issue will be the final one of the series. That, for me, is a real shame as this has been […]

‘Hook Jaw #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Si Spurrier | Art by Conor Boyle | Published by Titan Comics Well this was a blast from the past last month. Although Hook Jaw has something of a cult status in British comics, the strip itself has not been seen for many a year. Originally the star of Action weekly comic in […]

‘Doctor Who: The Ninth Doctor #9′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Cavan Scott | Art by Adriana Melo | Published by Titan Comics Although this title has in general been a little underwhelming, there have been moments that make you think it’s just about to turn the corner, that it’s going to go on a run of fine issues. The previous story arc was […]

‘The Chimera Brigade #4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Serge Lehman, Fabrice Colin | Art by Gess | Published by Titan Comics The Chimera Brigade, so far, has been a little schizophrenic in that it has consistently been gorgeous to look at, but lacking anything of substance in terms of consistent story and plot when scrutinised too closely. There are plenty of […]

‘Peepland #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Christa Faust, Gary Phillips | Art by Andrea Camerini | Published by Titan Comics The first two issues of this title really took me by surprise as I was kind of expecting not to like it. T&A has always sold to a certain demographic, and I thought this was a case of making […]

‘Triggerman #4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Matz, Walter Hill | Art by Jef | Published by Titan Comics Triggerman so far has been a very nice ride indeed, throwing the reader into the world of ‘Machine Gun’ Roy Nash, a triggerman (a hit man to you and me) for the Mob. Every page so far has wallowed in its […]

‘Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor #2.13′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Robbie Morrison | Art by Mariano Laclaustra | Published by Titan Comics Robbie Morrison and Mariano Laclaustra’s arrival on this title has been like a breath of the sweetest air. Up to their arrival three issues ago, the book felt like it was struggling a little, lacking a little of that Who magic […]

‘Assassin’s Creed #14′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Anthony Del Col, Conor McCreery | Art by Neil Edwards | Published by Titan Comics So here we are, the final issue of the title that launched Titan’s Assassin’s Creed stable of books. Fourteen issues seems way too short, but in this era of continually new and defined story arcs, continually new number […]

‘Rivers of London: Black Mould #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel | Art by Lee Sullivan | Colour by Luis Guerrero | Published by Titan Comics This story arc has so far been outstanding stuff. Full of fabulously snarky dialogue, police procedural, magic, and a generous dose of humour and tongue firmly planted in cheek. The black mould of the […]

‘Doctor Who: The 9th Doctor #8′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Cavan Scott | Art by Cris Bolson | Published by Titan Comics I’ve been trying to like this book more than I currently do. The pieces are all there, but they just don’t seem to be working well together. The Ninth Doctor, Rose Tyler and Captain Jack Harkness is as strong a tandem […]

‘Assassin’s Creed Last Decendants: Locus #4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ian Edgington | Art by Caspar Wijngaard | Published by Titan Comics Next year is a big year for Assassin’s Creed, with the movie coming out and probably another game or two, so the job of the comics, prose books, statues etc is to keep the brand active, and keep it popular. The […]

‘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

‘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 […]
