‘Doctor Who: The Thirteenth Doctor Holiday Special’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jody Houser | Art by Roberta Ingranata | Published by Titan Comics Pretty hard not to like a Holiday Special, right? To this day at Christmas I still pull out a stack of Christmas related issues, and read through them in the weeks leading up to Christmas. Just adds to the feel good […]

‘Robotech Remix #2’ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Brenden Fletcher | Art by Elmer Damaso | Published by Titan Comics I really didn’t want to like this reboot, or remix, of Robotech. I was so enjoying Simon Furman’s run that when it came to an end I was a bit annoyed. Yet another reboot I thought. Another cash grab first issue […]

‘Superman: Year One’ Graphic Novel Review (DC Black Label)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Frank Miller | Art by John Romita Jr. | Published by DC Black Label | Format: Hardcover, 168pp My first thought on hearing about this book, when published as three oversized issues, was did we really need another Superman origin/ early years book? There’s been a few down the years, and for me […]

‘Rivers of London: The Fey & The Furious #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ben Aaronovitch, Anrew Cartmel | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics You can always tell a good book by how much you miss it when it’s not around. The last issue of Rivers of London was over a year ago, and pretty much every month I’ve kept my eyes on […]

‘The Amazing Mary Jane #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Leah Williams | Art by Carlos Gomez | Published by Marvel Comics Seems quite appropriate to review this, as my last review was for a comic starring Lois Lane. Just as she will forever be ‘Superman’s girlfriend’, Mary Jane Watson will forever be ‘Spider-Man’s girlfriend’. The key difference between the two I guess […]

‘Tales From the Dark Multiverse: The Death of Superman #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jeff Loveness | Art by Brad Walker | Published by DC Comics Who doesn’t love a good ‘What if’ story? No one, that’s who. That is why Marvel and DC especially keep mining at that rich vein of story ideas. Call them Elseworlds, or the 2099 Universe, or What If, or Tales from […]

‘Marvel Tales feat. Ghost Rider #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Various | Art by Various | Published by Marvel Comics I kind of felt honour bound to review this, with Halloween in our not too distant future. Can you think of many better characters than Ghost Rider at this time of year. I also have a more personal connection in that, every Halloween […]

‘Doomsday Clock: Part 1’ Graphic Novel Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Geoff Johns | Art by Gary Frank | Published by DC Comics | Format: Hardback, 224pp I bought and read the original Watchmen series when it came out in 1986, and it is hard to convey now just how groundbreaking that was. I bought the 12 individual issues as they were published, and […]

‘Black Canary: Ignite’ Graphic Novel Review (DC Zoom)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Meg Cabot | Art by Cara McGee | Published by DC Zoom | Format: Paperback, 128pp Of all the recent DC Ink and DC Zoom imprint books, this was the one I thought might be a stretch, might be a reach too far. Don’t get me wrong, I love Black Canary as a […]

‘Robotech Remix #1’ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Brenden Fletcher | Art by Elmer Damaso | Published by Titan Comics If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. That was my first thought when I heard that Titan were replacing the excellent Robotech book with Robotech Remix. Since 2015, Brian Wood, Simon Furman, Marco Turini and Hendry Prasetya routinely turned in outstanding […]

‘The Joker: Year of the Villain #1’ Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by John Carpenter, Anthony Burch | Art by Philip Tan, Marc Deering, Danny Miki, Jonathan Glapion | Published by DC Comics It’s always nice when a small time villain like The Joker gets his own spotlight issue. Hidden away as he is by DC, it would be nice to see him get some exposure….said […]

‘Blade Runner 2019 #4’ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Michael Green, Mike Johnson | Art by Andres Guinaldo | Published by Titan Comics Time to check back in with everyone’s second favourite Blade Runner, Aahna Ashina (that’s a whole lot of the letter A). With this issue she’s only been around for four in total, but she’s become such a great rounded […]

‘The Batman’s Grave #1’ Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Warren Ellis | Art by Bryan Hitch, Kevin Nowlan | Published by DC Comics This was impossible to not pick up. Firstly, well, it’s Batman, currently going through something of a renaissance, with some good books being put out. I imagine with DC Comics now being fully operated and controlled by their corporate […]

Written by Jason Latour | Art by Bryan Hitch, Andrew Currie | Published by DC Comics Speaking as a, ahem, more mature fanboy I have got quite jaded of late with all the crossovers, mega events, ‘end of everything you know’ type stuff. I have been pleasantly surprised then by the fact I have really […]

‘Batman: Nightwalker’ Graphic Novel Review (DC Ink)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Stuart Moore, Marie Lu | Art by Chris Wildgoose | Published by DC Ink | Format: Paperback, 208pp The title of this graphic novel may seem familiar to some, and it should.

Written by Tom Taylor | Art by Leonard Kirk, Cory Hamscher | Published by Marvel Comics Marvel, obviously directed by parent company Disney, are sure getting their money’s worth from Star Wars.

‘Batman Damned’ Graphic Novel Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Brian Azzarello | Art by Lee Bermejo | Published by DC Black Label | Format: Hardcover, 192pp DC Black Label, which still sounds to me like a perfectly fine Scotch, is an imprint of DC designed to showcase more mature takes on DC characters. To my mind Vertigo already did that back in […]
