‘The Chimera Brigade #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Serge Lehman, Fabrice Colin | Art by Gess | Published by Titan Comics While not a complete success, the first issue of this series last month was interesting enough to make me want to come back again. It was easy to see the influences of Mike Mignola and Alan Moore, especially through books […]

‘Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor #2.10′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by George Mann | Art by Rachel Stott | Published by Titan Comics I haven’t been reading this series that much for various reasons. One is the normal reason, time, and the fact there is such a strong crop of comics out at any one time these days. Other reasons include the fact I […]

‘The Mummy #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Peter Milligan | Art by Ronilson Freire | Published by Titan/Hammer Comics In today’s comics market, I couldn’t think of a better company to help usher in a new era for some classic horror characters than Titan Comics. For me, they have rarely put a foot wrong with their publishing schedules over the last two […]

‘Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor #2.14′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Si Spurrier | Art by Simon Fraser | Published by Titan Comics Been a little while since I checked in on the Eleventh Doctor, and I was curious to see how much timey-wimey stuff I had missed. Scripter Si Spurrier I know mainly from 2000AD and Judge Dredd, and I liked the way […]

‘Mycroft Holmes #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Raymond Obstfeld | Art by Joshua Cassara | Published by Titan Comics This was a pleasant surprise on my reading pile last time round. I didn’t really have that high expectations of a comic featuring Sherlock Holmes’s brother (why would you?) but I like the direction they went, in showing us […]

‘Penny Dreadful #5′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Chris King | Art by Louie De Martinis | Published by Titan Comics Like most Penny Dreadful fans I was really disappointed when the show’s creator, John Logan, announced the third season would be the last. Again like most, I don’t buy into his statements that he only ever planned three seasons to […]

‘Doctor Who: The Third Doctor #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Paul Cornell | Art by Christopher Jones | Published by Titan Comics Second issues. I wonder if writers sit in front of that computer screen wondering just how they can maintain the quality of that first issue, or even up the ante. Or do they just laugh at us mere mortals and have […]

‘Rivers of London: Black Mould #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel | Art by Lee Sullivan | Colour by Luis Guerrero | Published by Titan Comics The Rivers of London books are fast becoming among my favourites currently being published. Well written and drawn, great characters and stories with a nice blend of humour and action, and dipping in and out […]

‘Warhammer 40k: Will of Iron #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by George Mann | Art by Tazio Bettin | Published by Titan Comics I must confess to not really know much about Warhammer, other than it is huge in the niche it occupies. I know it was created back in the 1980′s, and has evolved steadily from a humble table top game to the […]

‘Assassin’s Creed #12′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Anthony Del Col, Conor McCreery | Art by Neil Edwards | Published by Titan Comics I’ve missed the last 2 or 3 issues of this title, so was looking forward to see if I could just pick it straight back up and continue where I left off. I was pleased to see the […]

‘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 […]

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 […]
