‘Doctor Who: The Seventh Doctor #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Andrew Cartmel | Art by Christopher Jones | Published by Titan Comics As far as rehabilitations of characters go, last issue was a pretty good one for The Seventh Doctor. The Sylvester McCoy and Colin Baker incarnations were probably the lowest ebb for The Doctor, and personally I have little love for either […]

‘Robotech #10′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Simon Furman | Art by Marco Turini | Published by Titan Comics Dare I say it, but this book feels a little like it’s treading water. That may be overstating it a little, but although I’m all for teasing out plotlines over several issues, I’m not so keen on big reveals being pushed […]

‘Assassin’s Creed Origins #4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Anthony Del Col | Art by PJ Kaiowa | Published by Titan Comics This series so far has been…ok. Not bad in any way, in fact there have been a few nice moments, but it has never raised itself above a certain level. Partly I think this is because even though it is […]

‘The Prisoner #3′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Peter Milligan | Art by Colin Lorimer | Published by Titan Comics This series has been blinding since it’s relaunch. Smart, sassy, political, satirical, and full of sleight of hand. Know what’s going on? No you don’t. You only think you know what’s going on, rather like Breen, the new Number 6. Oh […]

‘Mickey Spillane’s Mike Hammer #1′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Max Allan Collins | Art by Marcelo Salaza, Marcio Freire | Published by Hard Case Crime/Titan Comics I’m guessing pretty much everyone has heard of Mickey Spillane, even those not really fans of the hardboiled detective genre, which he practically invented. When Mickey Spillane’s most famous character, Mike Hammer, first hit the stands […]

‘Tank Girl All-Stars #1′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Alan Martin | Art by Various | Published by Titan Comics So, Tank Girl is 30 years old this year. How the hell did that happen? Seems like only yesterday I was at university and I had to pretend to every girl I was trying to pick up that I was a big […]

‘Rivers of London: Water Weed #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Andrew Cartmel | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics Seems to have been an absolute age since there has been a new Rivers of London book, and looking back the last issue of the ‘Cry Fox’ arc was back in February. How dare Cartmel and Aaronovitch have any time off. […]

‘Doctor Who: The Seventh Doctor #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Andrew Cartmel | Art by Christopher Jones | Published by Titan Comics Now I’m willing to bet that among the many incarnations of The Doctor, the Sylvester McCoy Seventh Doctor is not up there as one of your favourites. Personally, I never really took to him. Too goofy for me, achingly intent to […]

‘Penny Dreadful #10′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Chris King | Art by Jesus Hervas | Published by Titan Comics I recall reading somewhere that Chris King said that he really loved these characters, which as the Executive Producer of the TV show you would expect him to say. He does, however have a funny way of showing it. The characters […]

‘Fighting American: The Ties That Bind #4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Gordon Rennie | Art by Andie Tong | Published by Titan Comics Always a bittersweet moment when we reach the final issue of each arc, as we do here with ‘The Ties That Bind’ storyline. It’s been, of course, a lot of fun. So much so, that it got me thinking that Fighting […]

‘The Prisoner #2′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Peter Milligan | Art by Colin Lorimer | Published by Titan Comics What a great re-launch of this property issue 1 was. Any doubts there were about The Prisoner, the epitome of late 1960′s quirky TV along with shows like The Avengers (that’s Steed and Mrs. Peel, not Iron Man and Captain America […]

‘Assassin’s Creed Origins #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Anthony Del Col | Art by PJ Kaiowa | Published by Titan Comics Still on the fence a little with this book so far. Sure, the writing and artwork are not bad, pretty good in fact, but so far I am not really seeing a story that had to be told. Once we […]

‘Robotech #9′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Simon Furman | Art by Marco Turini | Published by Titan Comics With Robotech #9, Simon Furman finally flies solo. Brian Wood’s four issue handover, where they shared billing as co-plotters, has finished and the book will stand or fall on Furman alone. So far, admittedly it may be a little too early […]

‘Fighting American: The Ties That Bind #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Gordon Rennie | Art by Andie Tong | Published by Titan Comics You know a book is that good when you struggle to find new compliments to pay it. This is effectively issue 7 of Fighting American, and every issue has been simply brilliant. Clever, witty, sassy, sarcastic you name it it probably […]

‘Action Comics #1000′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Various | Art by Various | Published by DC Comics DC Comics have of late been celebrating the 80th anniversary of both a flagship title, in Action Comics, and their flagship character, Superman. Both are, of course, fully worthy of such accolades. Action Comics has been continuously published since the dawn of the […]

‘Action Comics: 80 Years of Superman – Deluxe Edition’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Various | Art by Various | Published by DC Comics To paraphrase John Lennon, before Action Comics there was nothing. Action Comics was the comic book industry equivalent of the Big Bang. Prior to Action Comics you had comic books, but these were usually collections of previously published newspaper strips, repackaged to encourage […]

‘The Prisoner #1′ Review (Titan Comics)

Written by Peter Milligan | Art by Colin Lorimer | Published by Titan Comics You know something has a place in the national consciousness when it keeps reappearing every generation. The Prisoner has become just such a cult hit, its fans every bit as passionate as those of Star Trek or Star Wars for example. […]

‘Assassin’s Creed Origins #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Anthony Del Col | Art by PJ Kaiowa | Published by Titan Comics The historical angle has always been what has given Assassin’s Creed its unique ‘thing’, the clever weaving of historical fact with Assassin’s Creed fiction. Real people interacting with Creed created characters. Previous games in the relatively recent past have been […]

‘Penny Dreadful #9′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Chris King | Art by Jesus Hervas | Published by Titan Comics Well this has been a while coming. I reviewed issue 8 back in early January, so clearly the use of sadism isn’t just restricted to certain characters within the story. Chris King and Jesus Hervas, although clearly doing an absolutely brilliant […]

‘Fighting American: The Ties That Bind #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Gordon Rennie | Art by Andie Tong | Published by Titan Comics Last issue’s first issue of the book’s second arc was every bit as good as every issue of the first arc, and that’s saying something. The second album is always the most difficult, but Gordon Rennie just kept on doing what […]
