‘The Chimera Brigade #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Serge Lehman, Fabrice Colin | Art by Gess | Published by Titan Comics Well the preview write up on this book looked very interesting, citing influences as diverse (and as superb) as The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Planetary, and B.P.R.D. As I own all of these, I was very interested to see if […]

‘Dark Souls: Legends of the Flame #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Dan Watters, Cassandra Khaw, George Mann | Art by Caspar Wijngaard, Daniele Serra, Nick Percival | Published by Titan Comics I’ll be honest, Dark Souls: Legends of the Flame #2 is a tough book to rate easily. Not just because it is an anthology book, tough enough in itself, but also because what […]

‘Doctor Who: The 9th Doctor #6′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Cavan Scott | Art by Adriana Melo | Published by Titan Comics Probably the best part of last issue was the ending. Not that it was a bad issue by any means, though slightly pedestrian, but that the ending saw The Doctor, Jack and Rose dragged back in time to the 1970′s/1980′s heyday […]

‘Assassin’s Creed: Templars #5′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Fred Van Lente | Art by Dennis Calero | Published by Titan Comics As I have written in previous Assassin’s Creed reviews, the Assassin’s Creed universe is one of the richest out there. Although the many games supply a good back story and establish the Assassins Guild/Templar mythology, there is a huge blank […]

‘Doctor Who: The 9th Doctor #5′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Cavan Scott | Art by Adriana Melo | Published by Titan Comics The Ninth Doctor is the one that got away, the incarnation that promised so much when he first appeared but left us wondering what could have been when he left. The one series Christopher Eccleston completed gave us a decent introduction […]

‘Rivers of London: Night Witch #5′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics Rather like the first ‘Rivers’ limited series, Rivers of London: Night Witch has been a solid read. Sometimes perhaps promising a little more than it ultimately delivered, but usually maintaining a good balance between telling the main story and interweaving […]

‘Johnny Red #8′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Garth Ennis | Art by Keith Burns | Published by Titan Comics Parting is such sweet sorrow. The final issue of which has been one of the best books of the last year, from any company bar none. Ennis and Burns have not only dusted down an old, semi-forgotten character and strip but […]

‘Dark Souls: Legend of the Flame #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by George Mann, Tauria Moosa, Dan Watters | Art by Piotr Kowlaki, Damien Worm, Nick Percival | Published by Titan Comics The Dark Souls comics so far have been ok, and in fact have felt very much in spirit like the games they are based on, but have proven quite tough nuts to crack […]

‘Mycroft Holmes #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Raymond Obstfeld | Art by Joshua Cassara | Published by Titan Comics I missed the first issue of this series, so will have to try and read that at some point, but the first thing that struck me about this series was the fact it was being written by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. […]

‘Doctor Who: The Third Doctor #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Paul Cornell | Art by Christopher Jones | Published by Titan Comics For most people, Tom Baker IS The Doctor, and he was certainly a big part of my TV viewing childhood. For me though, my favourite Doctor was always the Jon Pertwee Third Doctor. He just looked like a really cool granddad […]

‘Assassin’s Creed Last Descendants: Locus #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ian Edginton | Art by Caspar Wijngaard | Published by Titan Comics Until relatively recently, comics based on games were something that I would very rarely pick up. They were often just cheap cash-ins, primarily designed to drum up interest in the main product itself, and lacking in both quality and creator enthusiasm. […]

‘Tank Girl: Two Girls One Tank #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Alan Martin | Art by Brett Parson | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp First things first before I start my review. Tank Girl as a character is not really aimed at me anymore, at my ‘demo’ as the marketing men like to call it. Once upon a time, in the […]

‘Norman #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Art & Writing by Stan Silas | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback At first glance this book looked a little, er, different. Or strange. Yes, let’s go with strange. ‘I am 8 Years old and I kill People’ is a pretty attention grabbing tagline after all. Norman had previously been the ‘star’ of […]

‘Deus Ex: Children’s Crusade #4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Alex Irvine | Art by John Aggs | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp As cross platform tie-ins go, this has been pretty good. Rather than being constrained by the restrictions of writing something that exists essentially to draw attention to an upcoming game release (that’s Deus Ex: Mankind Divided if […]

‘Independence Day: The Original Movie Adaptation’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Phil Crain, Ralph Macchio | Art by Leonard Kirk, Rod Whigham, Terry Pallot | Published by Titan Comics As the marketing for Independence Day: Resurgence really shifts into high gear, Titan Comics have decided to re-release the original Marvel Comics adaptation of the first Independence Day movie. A cash in? Sure. A worthy […]

‘Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor #2.10′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Nick Abadzis | Art by Elena Casagrande | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp Although for me this has overall been one of the weaker Who titles, in recent issues I’ve found myself warming more to it. Interestingly enough, that coincided with both Eleonora Carlini and Elena Casagrande taking a break […]

‘Doctor Who: The Fourth Doctor #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Gordon Rennie, Emma Beeby | Art by Brian Williamson | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp Reading this book so far has been like soaking in a warm bath of nostalgia, Rennie and Beeby not only capturing the Tom Baker Doctor at his peak, but also throwing him and Sarah Jane […]

‘Independence Day #3′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Victor Gischler | Art by Alex Shibao | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp I think to date this series has been receiving what I will diplomatically call mixed reviews. My reviews have not been mixed at all, in the sense that I think it has been a poor book. The […]

‘Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor #2.6′ Review

Written by George Mann | Art by Mariano Laclaustra | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp This issue is a great one for both ongoing fans, and for people thinking about giving this title a go. For ongoing fans, this takes place after Clara Oswald’s last adventure with The Doctor, that one which […]

‘Unleash #1′ Review (Amigo Comics)

by Dean Fuller

‘Dark Souls #2′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by George Mann | Art by Alan Quah | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp The first issue of this book was something of a curiosity to me. How do you take a, admittedly very good cult favourite, open world game with disposable characters and construct a linear story with characters the […]
