‘Black Panther: Official Movie Special’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Various | Published by Titan Comics First up let me say, I’m not sure if any part of this review will touch on spoilers as such, but if worried go watch the film first. Don’t blame me if I spoil the bit when Wolverine arriv…er, well, don’t blame me. Not sure if any […]

‘Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor #3.14′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Nick Abadzis | Art by Giorgia Sposito | Published by Titan Comics This four part send off for The Tenth Doctor’s year three adventures has been, well, rather good. Nick Abadzis has thrown in a little bit of everything here, to craft something of a love letter to The Doctor, Gabby, and Cindy. […]

‘Death to the Tsar’ Graphic Novel Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Fabien Nury | Art by Thierry Robin | Published by Titan Comics I enjoyed the previous effort by these guys so much, I decided to jump straight in on this book. They wrote The Death of Stalin, a fine piece of political satire made all the funnier because most of it was true. […]

‘Rivers of London: Cry Fox #4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Andrew Cartmel, Ban Aaronovitch | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics To all good arcs an end must come, and the Cry Fox arc reaches its conclusion with this issue. It’s misdirected me a couple of times, which is a good way to keep us jaded readers on our toes, […]

‘Robotech #7′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Simon Furman | Art by Marco Turini | Published by Titan Comics Although Brian Wood officially signed off with Issue 4, he has clearly road mapped out quite a bit of the first year of this book, as he continues to get a co-plotter credit with Simon Furman. Furman has been the writer […]

‘Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor #3.12′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Richard Dinnick | Art by Pasquale Qualano | Published by Titan Comics I’ve heard a rumour or two that The Twelfth Doctor’s book may not be regenerating for a fourth year. I hope that’s not the case, as I think it’s been one of the stronger titles. Yes, the Twelfth Doctor isn’t the […]

‘Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor #3.13′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Nick Abadzis | Art by Giorgia Sposito | Published by Titan Comics This being the final arc of The Tenth Doctor’s Year Three adventures, it seems Nick Abadzis has saved the best for last. So far this has been a fine storyline. The first two parts of ‘The Good Companion’ have seen the […]

by Dean Fuller

Written by Simon Furman | Art by Marco Turini | Published by Titan Comics Last issue saw Brian Wood passing the Robotech torch on to Simon Furman, although with a plotting credit for last issue and this Wood holds Furman’s hand a little as he gets up to speed on the book. If you hadn’t […]

‘Rivers of London: Cry Fox #3′ 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 one of my favourite books drops. I read many comics every month, and some I read through a sense of completion rather than a sense of enjoyment, but can honestly say […]

‘Fighting American #4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Gordon Rennie | Art by Duke Mighten, PC De La Fuente | Published by Titan Comics This book has been ridiculously good. Smart, funny, sassy, and all delivered in a fantastically deadpan style. Fighting American and Speedboy are endearing with their naivety and adherence to their outdated moral and heroic code, just as […]

by Dean Fuller

Written by Alex Paknadel, Rob Williams | Art by JB Bastos, Luiz Campello | Published by Titan Comics So here we are, the last issue of Year Three of The Eleventh Doctor. The year has been dominated mostly by the ongoing saga of The Sapling, and the pursuit by The Scream. It’s been a fun […]

Written by Cynthia Von Buhler | Art by Cynthia Von Buhler | Published by Titan Comics The first issue of this book I labelled under both ‘quirky’ and ‘well, that was a pleasant surprise’. It’s certainly not a book for everyone, but the Hard Case imprint logo should tell you that anyway. Creator/Writer/Artist Cynthia von […]

by Dean Fuller

Written by Nick Abadzis | Art by Giorgia Sposito | Published by Titan Comics Last issue saw a promising start to a new story arc, ‘The Good Companion’. In the past I’ve found Nick Abadzis’ Who stories a bit mixed, though more hit than miss. Of late though he has been writing especially interesting stuff, […]

‘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)

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 […]

‘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 […]

‘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. […]
