‘Penny Dreadful #8′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Chris King | Art by Jesus Hervas | Published by Titan Comics Penny Dreadful has to be one of the toughest books currently out there to recap. Not only is every issue absolutely crammed to the brim with story, but Chris King weaves multiple threads over many issues, many of which began life […]

‘Dan Dare #4′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Peter Milligan | Art by Albert Foche | Published by Titan Comics With this issue the first story arc of the Dan Dare relaunch comes to a close. Or reimagining I guess, as Peter Milligan has chosen to change the relationship between Dan and The Mekon. At least on the surface. What I’ve […]

by Dean Fuller

Tis’ the season to write Top Ten lists, as you all well know. Don’t roll your eyes, you know you expect it. I am nothing if not a slave to fashion. I have picked out my personal favourite ten titles of the many books I have read and reviewed this year. You may well disagree […]

‘Robotech #5′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Simon Furman | Art by Marco Turini | Published by Titan Comics The common practice these days when a new book is launched, or a tired property is relaunched, is to attach a top creator to it, have him or her do their bit to get it off the ground, then pass the […]

‘Fighting American #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Gordon Rennie | Art by Duke Mighten, PC De La Fuente | Published by Titan Comics If I had to pick a book to be the surprise package of the year, it could very well be this one. Fighting American as a book has always struggled, as creators have often fallen between two […]

‘Rivers of London: Cry Fox #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Andrew Cartmel, Ben Aaronovitch | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics Last issue saw the beginning of a new story arc, Cry Fox, which although it did feature a fox of sorts had absolutely no crying. It did , though, have a whole heap of other stuff that directly led […]

‘Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor #3.10′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Richard Dinnick | Art by Francesco Manna | Published by Titan Comics I’ve come to learn that anything with Richard Dinnick writing it has some quality to it. Either it’s a bit quirky, mines an aspect of Dr Who others have left untouched or forgotten, or just excels at dialogue and character work. […]

‘Dan Dare #3′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Peter Milligan | Art by Alberto Foche | Published by Titan Comics If you’re still here for issue 3 then , like me, you’ve been enjoying Peter Milligan’s re-imagining of Dan Dare and his world. Some of the changes have been very slight, just a tweak here, an update there, but the biggest […]

‘Quarry’s War #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Max Allan Collins | Art by Szymon Kudranski | Published by Hard Case Crime/Titan Comics When the Hard Case Crime imprint arrived on the scene, it wasn’t a question of if, but when, they published something by Max Allan Collins. Collins is something of a star in several fields, but is probably best […]

‘Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor #3.12′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Alex Paknadel, Rob Williams | Art by Ivan Rodriguez, JB Bastos, Luiz Campello | Published by Titan Comics Seems an age since I reviewed The Eleventh Doctor’s solo shenanigans. He was quite pivotal in The Lost Dimension crossover of course, but for a character with their own book there’s no place like home. […]

‘Doctor Radar #1′ Review (Statix Press)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Noel Simsolo | Art by Bezian | Published by Statix Press/Titan Comics Although my comic book tastes have always primarily been skewed to American comics, and especially Marvel and DC superhero titles, I am always happy to have a dabble outside of my comfort zone. I think it’s good on a personal level […]

‘Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor #3.11′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Nick Abadzis | Art by Giorgia Sposito | Published by Titan Comics Well, multi part Doctor Who stories are apparently like buses. Just last issue I was saying how refreshing it was to have a multi issue storyline focused on the one book, as ‘Vortex Butterflies’ wrapped up last issue, rather than just […]

‘Minky Woodcock: The Girl Who Handcuffed Houdini #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Cynthia Von Buhler | Art by Cynthia Von Buhler | Published by Titan Comics Sometimes we pick up books and comics because they feature favourite characters of ours, or they feature writers and/or artists that we like a lot. That’s my normal practice, though of course as a reviewer I probably see a […]

‘Penny Dreadful #7′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Chris King | Art by Jesus Hervas | Published by Titan Comics I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, you’ll be hard pressed to find a more faithful adaptation of a property from one medium to another. Apart from the fact Penny Dreadful works incredibly well in comic book form anyway, […]

‘Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor #3.9′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Richard Dinnick | Art by Pasquale Qualano | Published by Titan Comics So now we have finished with all that big multi-title crossover malarkey, we can return to good old solid solo adventure fun. Well, not entirely solo as The Doctor has Bill of course, but you know what I mean. Comic book […]

‘Dan Dare #2′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Peter Milligan | Art by Alberto Foche | Published by Titan Comics I always think Dan Dare, rather like Captain America and Superman, is a victim of his own iconic status. He’s great as a symbol, as a painted cover or on a poster, but when it comes to putting him in good […]

‘Rivers of London: Cry Fox #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Andrew Cartmel, Ben Aaronovitch | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics Always a pleasure when a new issue of Rivers of London arrives, even more so when it is the start of a new story arc. You never quite know where this book will be going, so rich is the […]

‘Robotech #4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Brian Wood | Art by Marco Turini | Published by Titan Comics With three issues under the belt it is time for a mid-term assessment of Robotech. I’m thinking a solid B, though a book that only looks like getting better rather than dropping off. I have been finding myself enjoying the nostalgia, […]

‘Doctor Who: The Lost Dimension #8 – Omega’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by George Mann, Cavan Scott | Art by Mariano LacLaustra | Published by Titan Comics Two things can make or break a mini-series. Having a great concept, to draw the reader in, and both knowing when to end the story and making the conclusion good enough to justify the time and money the reader […]

‘Fighting American #2′ Review

Written by Gordon Rennie | Art by Duke Mighten | Published by Titan Comics Smell that? That’s fresh air. That huge waft of it you detected last month came exclusively from this book. Although I love my Time Lords and their timey-wimey stuff, and Assassins with their Creed, it’s always a pleasure when something appears […]

‘Doctor Who: The Lost Dimension #7′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Emma Beeby | Art by Ivan Rodriguez, I.N.J Culbard and more | Published by Titan Comics I am having something of a love/ hate relationship with this ‘event’, as I have detailed in previous reviews of it. It’s hard to not love any time multiple Doctors team up, rather like a cosmic The […]

‘Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor #3.8′ Review (aka The Lost Dimension – Part 6)

by Dean Fuller

Written by George Mann | Art by Rachael Stott, Marcelo Salaza | Published by Titan Comics So, The Lost Dimension arc, this year’s flavour of the now yearly multiple Doctors event, comes once again to a monthly book. I have said elsewhere that this year’s event, pretty much giving most of The Doctor’s incarnations their […]
