‘Transformers/Ghostbusters: Ghost of Cybertron #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Erik Burnham | Art by Dan Schoening | Published by IDW Publishing This was a title I just couldn’t resist picking up. Although I love my superhero stuff, my Vertigo stuff, my ‘mature’ graphic novels, there will always be a part of me that is a sucker for any pop culture crossover. When […]

‘Psi-Lords #1’ Review (Valiant)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Fred Van Lente | Art by Renato Guedes | Published by Valiant Entertainment Easy to forget now, but back when Valiant Comics originally launched its first book in 1991, it was something of a game changer. Everyone now always remembers Image, with its high profile creators, but that came a year later. Valiant, […]

‘Vader: Dark Visions #5’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Dennis Hallum | Art by Geraldo Borges | Published by Marvel Comics When the Star Wars licence was with Dark Horse Comics, I tended to dip in and out quite a lot. The books were good quality, with top creators, and editorial made a conscious effort to keep a tight continuity with not […]

‘Event Leviathan #1’ Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Brian Michael Bendis | Art by Alex Maleev | Published by DC Comics I tend to find that Bendis’s name attached to a huge company-wide crossover can either be a brilliant thing or a terrible one. Bendis at the top of his game is a joy, he can write some cracking dialogue and […]

‘Criminal #5’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ed Bribaker | Art by Sean Philips | Published by Image Comics I’ve followed Criminal on and off for a few years now, usually picking up the trades rather than waiting for the individual issues. I tend to find Brubaker is so good at leaving tantalising teases at the end of individual issues […]

‘Doctor Who: The Thirteenth Doctor #8’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jody Houser | Art by Roberta Ingranata | Published by Titan Comics In this age of ‘four and done’ arcs, so those issues can be neatly packaged up as graphic novels and have their shelf lives extended, I was guessing this issue would tie up the second storyline of the book and I […]

‘Green Lantern #8’ Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Grant Morrison | Art by Liam Sharp | Published by DC Comics It’s been a while since I checked in on Green Lantern. One of the mainstays of my younger comic reading days, the Green Lantern run by Len Wein and Dave Gibbons remains one of my favourite runs on a book ever. […]

‘The Dreaming Vol.1: Pathways & Emanations’ Graphic Novel Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Neil Gaiman, Simon Spurrier | Art by Bilquis Evely | Published by DC Vertigo | Format: Paperback, 200pp Ah, Vertigo, the house that Neil built. Gaiman that is. Without Neil Gaiman there would probably be no Vertigo, or at least not the successful imprint it became. Being fair, it’s also right to say […]

‘Best of Star Wars Insider: The Original Trilogy’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Various | Published by Titan Books | Format: Paperback, 176pp Star Wars is of course the gift that keeps on giving. Since the release of Star Wars: A New Hope back in 1977, Star Wars has dominated popular culture like nothing else until the recent incursion of Marvel Studios, and possibly the ever […]

‘To The Death #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Simon Furman | Art by Geoff Senior | Published by FBF Productions Simon Furman and Geoff Senior are almost comic book royalty. Sure, they have extensive CV’s in areas such as scripting, screenwriting and advertising art, but they always come back to comic books. For love, I would wager, rather than for the […]

‘Six Days’ Graphic Novel Review (DC/Vertigo)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Robert Venditti, Kevin Maurer | Art by Andrea Mutti | Colours by Lee Loughridge | Published by DC/Vertigo | Format: Hardback, 148pp I’d imagine the average comic book reader is like me, they read comic books as they enjoy the escapism and the larger than life heroics. Although there has always been a healthy indie […]

‘Avengers: Endgame – The Official Movie Special’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Various | Published by Titan Magazines | Format: Hardback, 96pp So, who’s been with the Marvel cinematic universe from the start? I certainly have. I still remember back in 2008 dragging my wife to see Iron Man. Although it was a character I had always liked, hundreds of issues of Avengers and Iron […]

‘Robotech #20’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Simon Furman | Art by Marco Turini | Published by Titan Comics Although not always the quickest kid on the block, and obviously distracted by little things like Avengers: Endgame and Game of Thrones of late, even I had been wondering what the little countdown symbols were on the recent covers of Robotech.

‘Doctor Who: The Thirteenth Doctor #7’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jody Houser | Art by Roberta Ingranata | Published by Titan Comics Seven issues in already, where did that time go? In the entertainment bank, that’s where. It’s been a great half year of issues, and I still stand by my comment that I find the comic book far more entertaining than the […]

‘Doctor Who: The Thirteenth Doctor #6’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jody Houser | Art by Roberta Ingranata | Published by Titan Comics First thing to mention this time round is the distinct lack of the name Rachael Stott anywhere. In my review of the last issue I had just mentioned how it was nice to see a creative team stay intact for more […]

‘Robotech #19’ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Simon Furman | Art by Marco Turini | Published by Titan Comics Always happy when a new issue of Robotech drops, as it has been consistently one of the best titles out there. Furman always delivers what you would expect from the book, fun sci-fi, but also throws in some soap opera, political […]

Written by Danielle Paige | Art by Stephen Byrne | Format: Paperback, 192pp | Published by DC Ink This is the second of the DC Ink books I have reviewed, the first being Under The Moon, a young Selina Kyle/ Catwoman story. I expect the approach to the characters in this to be as fresh […]

Written by Ridley Pearson | Art by Ile Gonzalez | Format: Paperback, 160pp | Published by DC Zoom DC Zoom, of which this volume is one of the launch titles, is an imprint aimed at the 8-12 age range. That, of course, was probably the age range comics were actually aimed at once upon a […]

‘Captain Marvel: The Official Movie Special’ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Various | Published by Titan Comics/Marvel | Format: Hardcover, 96pp Until relatively recently, and under an older management no longer in place, it was said that a female led superhero film could never succeed. Men just wouldn’t go and watch apparently. Ironically, Marvel themselves could have been the first to consign that to […]

Usually at the forefront of advances in the industry, be it the first limited series, prestige format comics, mature theme material, even web comics. They’ve usually dipped […]

Written by Simon Furman | Art by Hendry Prasetya, Pasquale Qualano | Published by Titan Comics There’s something warm and cosy about this Robotech book at the moment. That’s a compliment, by the way. It’s reliable, it’s consistent, and it always delivers. You can count on it. Sure, there some flashier books out there, but […]
