‘Freeway Fighter #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Andi Ewington | Art by Simon Coleby | Published by Titan Comics I’m sure all of us of a certain age remember the Fighting Fantasy books series. I still have few on my nostalgia bookshelf in fact. Before the internet, social media, and online gaming, there weren’t that many avenues for escapism (I […]

‘Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor #3.5′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by James Peaty | Art by I.N.J. Culbard | Published by Titan Comics A whole lot of new this issue. New story arc, ‘Time of the Ood’, new writer in James Peaty and new artist in I.N.J Culbard. Although the last adventure was nicely wrapped up last issue, the ongoing plot thread of The […]

‘Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor #3.5′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by James Peaty | Art by Warren Pleece | Published by Titan Comics All change from last issue as we have another of those ‘interlude’ issues, where a different creative team fill in on the book for an issue. Having noticed something similar on other Doctor Who books, one could almost think they are […]

‘Tekken #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Cavan Scott | Art by Andie Tong | Published by Titan Comics Tekken is one of those names that I’m sure most people recognise, even those who don’t go in for gaming. Tekken has been around for over two decades, and I’m sure most of us have played a game or two over […]

‘Doctor Who: Ghost Stories #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by George Mann | Art by Pasquale Qualano | Published by Titan Comics I was a little bit hasty with my preconceptions of this book. A mini-series based on a Dr Who TV Christmas special that I didn’t particularly like looked doomed to failure, review wise. Instead George Mann served up a first issue […]

‘Penny Dreadful #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Chris King | Art by Jesus Hervas | Published by Titan Comics Well last issue was something of a cracker I think you’d agree. The first issue of this new series, and essentially Season 4 of the TV show, lived up to my already high expectations and then some. Chris King managed to […]

‘Hook Jaw #5′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Si Spurrier | Art by Conor Boyle | Published by Titan Comics Hook Jaw has had plenty of bite so far, a lot to sink our teeth into and a story easy to dive into. Also ideal for bad puns apparently. Joking aside, Si Spurrier has managed to put a fresh spin and […]

‘Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor #3.2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by James Peaty | Art by Warren Pleece | Published by Titan Comics Well this issue, ‘The Boy With the Displaced Smile’, is apparently an interlude adventure that The Doctor had before re-uniting with Hattie as we saw last issue. Officially, this is The Doctor’s mind going back to a previous adventure, even as […]

‘Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor #3.4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Nick Abadzis | Art by Giorgia Sposito, Arianna Florean | Published by Titan Comics Ah, The Tenth Doctor. Simultaneously one of my favourite incarnations of The Doctor, and one of my least favourite Dr Who books. A little harsh perhaps, as objectively it is always a pretty decent quality book, but stacked up […]

‘Anno Dracula 1895: Seven Days in Mayhem #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Kim Newman | Art by Paul McCaffrey | Published by Titan Comics The first issue of the Anno Dracula 1895 comic series, from the mind of Kim Newman, threw in enough ideas and concepts to fill a dozen issues of most other series. I say ‘new’, but the series grew out of Kim Newman’s […]

‘Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor #3.1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by George Mann | Art by Mariano Laclaustra | Published by Titan Comics This issue sees new beginnings, as Year Three publishing wise begins. Robbie Williams makes way for George Mann, and Rachel Stott for Mariano Laclaustra. A fair swap on the face of it, though I’ll miss Robbie Morrison’s scripts as they were […]

‘The Mummy #5′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Peter Milligan | Art by Ronilson Freire | Published by Hammer/Titan Comics So here we are, the dramatic wrap up of what has been a pretty good updating, or reimagining, of The Mummy mythos. Interestingly, like most other genres, The Mummy ultimately comes down to power. The people who have it, the people […]

‘Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor #3.4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Alex Paknadel | Art by Simon Fraser | Published by Titan Comics Alex Paknadel did a pretty decent job last issue, building on the pieces put in place by Rob Williams. Although the sub-plot of the renegade Silent The Scream is ongoing, as he pursues The Doctor, The Sapling and Alice, the focus […]

‘Doctor Who: Ghost Stories #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by George Mann | Art by Ian Rodriguez | Published by Titan Comics Before I get stuck into the review in earnest, cards on the table time. I didn’t enjoy the Christmas special that inspired this 4 part mini-series. The Return of Dr Mysterio appeared on our screens Christmas 2016, and seems to have […]

‘Hook Jaw #4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Si Spurrier | Art by Conor Boyle | Published by Titan Comics If there’s one thing this book confirms, it’s that the appetite for sharks in any medium is still there. People still love a little chomping action it seems. Si Spurrier has been pretty clever by making Hook Jaw, the nominal star […]

‘Dark Souls: Tales of Ember #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by George Mann, Tauriq Moosa, Michael Walsh | Art by Daniele Serra, Damien Worm, Michael Walsh, Dylan Burnett | Published by Titan Comics As big a fan of Titan Comics as I am, and I love 95% of their output, I have struggled a little with the Dark Souls books they have put out. […]

‘Doctor Who: The Ninth Doctor #11′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Cavan Scott | Art by Cris Bolson | Published by Titan Comics Is the Ninth Doctor just tricky to write? You would think that the relative lack of history for this incarnation would be a good thing, allowing the writer a little bit more freedom with their scripts than you would get for […]

‘Peepland #5′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Christa Faust, Gary Phillips | Art by Andrea Camerini | Published by Titan Comics I always feel as though I need a shower after reading Peepland. This is not the nostalgic 1980′s of a John Hughes movie, this is a dark, seedy underbelly peopled by bad people doing very bad things, and good […]

‘Penny Dreadful: The Awaking #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Chris King | Art by Jesus Hervas | Published by Titan Comics Penny Dreadful was one of my favourite shows of the last few years. I’m certainly not alone in that it quickly grew into something of a cult classic. Often violent and bloody, but very stylish and superbly written and acted. It’s […]

Graphic Novel Review: ‘The Assignment’

by Dean Fuller

Written by Walter Hill, Dennis Hamill | Adapted by Matz | Art by Jef | Published by Titan Comics Can lightning strike twice? The team of Walter Hill, Matz, and Jef did a great job on their Triggerman book, a book I really enjoyed reading earlier this year. This title, The Assignment, originally came out […]

‘Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor #2.15′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Robbie Morrison | Art by Rachel Stott | Published by Titan Comics Robbie Morrison continued his winning streak with last issue, the first of this new arc. Although for a second it looked as though Morrison would be treating us to the adventures of the Time Surgeon and companion Kara, fighting the dastardly […]

Graphic Novel Review: ‘Doctor Who – Supremacy of the Cybermen’

by Dean Fuller

Written by Cavan Scott, George Mann | Art by Ivan Rodriguez, Walter Geovanni | Published by Titan Comics The Cybermen, bar none, have always been my favourite Dr Who villains. In fact, not only my favourite Who villains, but in my top ten of science fiction villains ever. I could also bore you with reasons […]
