‘Mera: Tidebreaker’ Review (DC Ink)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Danielle Paige | Art by Stephen Byrne | Format: Paperback, 192pp | Published by DC Ink This is the second of the DC Ink books I have reviewed, the first being Under The Moon, a young Selina Kyle/ Catwoman story. I expect the approach to the characters in this to be as fresh […]

‘Super Sons: The PolarShield Project’ Review (DC Zoom)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ridley Pearson | Art by Ile Gonzalez | Format: Paperback, 160pp | Published by DC Zoom DC Zoom, of which this volume is one of the launch titles, is an imprint aimed at the 8-12 age range. That, of course, was probably the age range comics were actually aimed at once upon a […]

‘Captain Marvel: The Official Movie Special’ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Various | Published by Titan Comics/Marvel | Format: Hardcover, 96pp Until relatively recently, and under an older management no longer in place, it was said that a female led superhero film could never succeed. Men just wouldn’t go and watch apparently. Ironically, Marvel themselves could have been the first to consign that to […]

‘Under the Moon: A Catwoman Tale’ Review (DC Ink)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Lauren Myracle | Art by Isaac Goodhart | Format: Paperback, 208pp | Published by DC Ink Once upon a time DC Comics were quite the innovators. Usually at the forefront of advances in the industry, be it the first limited series, prestige format comics, mature theme material, even web comics. They’ve usually dipped […]

‘Robotech #18′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Simon Furman | Art by Hendry Prasetya, Pasquale Qualano | Published by Titan Comics There’s something warm and cosy about this Robotech book at the moment. That’s a compliment, by the way. It’s reliable, it’s consistent, and it always delivers. You can count on it. Sure, there some flashier books out there, but […]

‘Doctor Who: The Thirteenth Doctor #5′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jody Houser | Art by Rachael Stott | Published by Titan Comics Good news all round this issue, as a new story arc kicks off and all the cast and crew are present and accounted for. How often do you see a new book launched with a great creative team, only for that […]

‘Robotech #17′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Simon Furman | Art by Hendry Prasetya, Pasquale Qualano | Published by Titan Comics When this book began, I did wonder if there was a place for this in the modern publishing world. Robotech has always been entertaining, be it in cartoon form or previous comic book series, but has had a touch […]

‘Mister Miracle: The Complete Series’ Graphic Novel Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Tom King | Art by Mitch Gerads | Format: 300pp, Paperback | Published by DC Comics I think it’s fair to say that Mister Miracle has always been, at the very best, a second tier character. The best thing he had going for him was that he was created by Jack Kirby himself, […]

‘Doctor Who: The Thirteenth Doctor #4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jody Houser | Art by Rachael Stott | Published by Titan Comics I think I had more fun reading the last three issues of The Thirteenth Doctor than I had watching the entire last series of the TV show. Jody Houser has certainly shown these characters can work well, can be interesting, and […]

‘Rivers of London: Action at a Distance #4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Andrew Cartmel | Art by Brian Williamdson | Published by Titan Comics Before jumping into the main part of these scribblings, after all you are here to read a review of the story are you not, I want to give a shout out to what a great cover this issue has. I mentioned […]

‘Robotech #16′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Simon Furman | Art by Hendry Prasetya | Published by Titan Comics Last issue kept up the great pace and action that has characterised the series in the last few issues, and saw artists Ivan Rodriguez and Pasquale Qualano step onto the book, the first time regular artist Hendry Prasetya has not been […]

‘Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse: Movie Special’ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Various | Art by Various | Format: Hardback, 96pp | Published by Titan Comics If you are anything like me, when you play a particularly good game, or read a particularly great book or comic, or watch a great movie, you want to extend the experience. You look for other tie-ins, like soundtracks, […]

‘Doctor Who: The Thirteenth Doctor #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jody Houser | Art by Rachael Stott | Published by Titan Comics I’m a reasonably intelligent person, and yet it has taken me 3 issues to realise that this book is entirely written, drawn, coloured and edited by women. If that makes you happy or not, still quite a radical statement by a […]

‘Robotech #15′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Simon Furman | Art by Ivan Rodriguez, Pasquale Qualano | Published by Titan Comics Last issue was a corker, wasn’t it? A lot happened, as those delicate strands of plotting weaved over several issues started to wrap tighter and tighter around the main story, with previously separate or seemingly unrelated storylines starting to […]

‘Rivers of London: Action at a Distance #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Andrew Cartmel | Art by Brian Williamson | Published by Titan Comics So far this has been reading as a kind of old fashioned pulp story, albeit with a dash of magic thrown in. That’s a compliment, as it seeks to evoke the 1950′s atmosphere of its setting and does that really well. […]

‘Doctor Who: The Thirteenth Doctor #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jody Houser | Art by Rachael Stott | Published by Titan Comics This book started out really strong last issue, with a five star review from me, and that followed on from the 0 issue, which again was superb. It entertained, had great script and art, good characters, and promised much to come. […]

‘Penny Dreadful #12′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Chris King | Art by Jesus Hervas | Published by Titan Comics Another loooooong wait for an issue of this book, this issue being only the second one published in 6 months! I’m guessing this may be due to Chris King’s heavy workload, and possible involvement in the new Penny Dreadful show recently […]

‘Elric Vol 1: The Ruby Throne – Deluxe Edition’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Julien Blondel | Based on the novel by Michael Moorcock | Art by Robin Recht, Didier Poli | Published by Titan Comics Elric. For me, one of the most frustrating characters in fantasy fiction. For as long as I can remember, I’ve wanted to like him. I’ve tried reading the books and the comics, […]

‘Rivers of London: Action at a Distance #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Andrew Cartmel | Art by Brian Williamson | Published by Titan Comics I loved the first issue of the new story arc that we saw last time round. Ticked quite a few boxes for me. We got some period adventure, which is always nice. We learnt something new, again, very nice. Some spotlight […]

‘Robotech #14′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Simon Furman | Art by Hendry Prasetya | Published by Titan Comics I think it’s safe to say we are starting to enter payoff territory with this book. While it has never had a problem cueing up nice situations, or hinting at exciting developments, it has not exactly been quick to resolve them […]

‘Marvel Studios: The First Ten Years’ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Can you believe it has been 10 years since the Marvel Cinematic Universe came to life with the release of the original Iron Man film back in 2008. I certainly can’t. I still remember trying to persuade my reluctant wife to come to see it, but at the time a boys own fantasy of some […]

‘The Raid #4′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Alex Paknadel | Art by Budi Setiawan | Published by Titan Comics Last issue was an absolute stormer, helped in part by Alex Paknadel taking over as scripter from Ollie Masters. Masters obviously plotted out the entire arc, so kudos for that, but the devil in the detail last issue came from Paknadel […]
