‘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 […]

‘Anno Dracula 1895: Seven Days in Mayhem #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Kim Newman | Art by Paul McCaffrey | Published by Titan Comics The horror comics renaissance of recent times seemingly continues with the arrival of Anno Dracula by Kim Newman. Kim Newman should need no introduction to horror fans, being a critically acclaimed writer and critic, and the fact he is not just […]

‘Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor #3.3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Nick Abadzis | Art by Giorgia Sposito | Published by Titan Comics Quite the frustrating book for me this one. I continually struggle to enjoy it, but also continually will it on to make me change my mind. To make it worse, I can’t quite put my finger on what exactly doesn’t quite […]

‘The Mummy #4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Peter Milligan | Art by Ronilson Freire | Published by Titan/Hammer Comics Last issue saw radical moves for pretty much all the pieces on the chessboard that is The Mummy. Prior to this we had had a lot of scene setting, of establishing character and their role in the story, and a definite […]

‘Rivers of London: Black Mould #5′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics The final issue of a story arc is always a mixed blessing. On the one hand, you want a resolution, you want to see how it all finishes and if it lives up to what has gone before. On […]

‘Assassin’s Creed: Uprising #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Alex Paknadel, Dan Watters | Art by Jose Holder | Published by Titan Comics The first issue of this new series last month gave me very mixed feelings if truth be told. I like Assassin’s Creed as a brand, as a concept, and I like the fact it allows you to branch out […]

‘Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor #3.3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Alex Paknadel | Art by Simon Fraser | Published by Titan Comics Colour me surprised to pick up this issue and find writer Rob Williams name missing, replaced by that of Alex Paknadel, a name I am mainly familiar with from the Arcadia title published by Boom! A quick check, and it seems […]

‘Masked #4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Serge Lehman | Art by Stephane Crety, Julien Hugonnard-Bert | Published by Titan Comics It’s a bit difficult to make my mind up about this book. On the one hand, the setting of a futuristic Paris, Paritropolis, is pretty cool, as are the giant television screens on the sides of buildings and the […]

‘Hook Jaw #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Si Spurrier | Art by Conor Boyle | Published by Titan Comics Up to issue 3, and I’m still marveling that a book such as this is even being published in this day and age. To say it is a little different is just a slight understatement. Si Spurrier has done a good […]

‘Doctor Who: The Ninth Doctor #10′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Cavan Scott | Art by Adriana Melo | Published by Titan Comics This is a book on the up at the moment. It has been fair-to-middling for most of its publishing life, which although not bad places it near the bottom of the pile of Doctor Who titles being published. The previous UNIT […]

‘Doctor Who: The Third Doctor #5′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Paul Cornell | Art by Christopher Jones | Published by Titan Comics Ah, the Third Doctor series, one of a handful of books I really look forward to each issue. This has been a blast, a near perfect blend of nostalgia and skillful writing, of a nod to the past and a wink […]

Written by Christa Faust, Gary Phillips | Art by Andrea Camerini | Published by Titan Comics Three issues behind us, and things have really started to move forward at speed. Although the central story follows sex worker Roxy and on/off boyfriend Nick Zero, and the bad guys in pursuit of the tape they possess showing […]

‘Mycroft Holmes #5′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Raymond Obstfeld | Art by Joshua Cassara | Published by Titan Comics This being Issue 5 means this is the last issue, in these days of “5 issues make the perfect graphic novel collection size”. Sometimes that artificial restriction does impact on the story, as pacing goes noticeably awry when too […]

‘Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor #3.2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Rob Williams | Art by Leandro Casco, Wellington Diaz | Published by Titan Comics What a great start to year three last issue was. Rob Williams brought a real breath of fresh air to the book, and I especially enjoyed the little tongue in cheek pop at Brexit, delivered in typically Whovian style. […]
