‘Doctor Who: The Fourth Doctor #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Gordon Rennie, Emma Beeby | Art by Brian Williamson | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp Reading this book so far has been like soaking in a warm bath of nostalgia, Rennie and Beeby not only capturing the Tom Baker Doctor at his peak, but also throwing him and Sarah Jane […]

‘Independence Day #3′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Victor Gischler | Art by Alex Shibao | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp I think to date this series has been receiving what I will diplomatically call mixed reviews. My reviews have not been mixed at all, in the sense that I think it has been a poor book. The […]

by Dean Fuller

Written by George Mann | Art by Mariano Laclaustra | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp This issue is a great one for both ongoing fans, and for people thinking about giving this title a go. For ongoing fans, this takes place after Clara Oswald’s last adventure with The Doctor, that one which […]

‘Doctor Who: The 9th Doctor #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Cavan Scott | Art by Adriana Melo | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp Last issue was a great start to the new ongoing adventures of the Ninth Doctor. Although the 9th Doctor is not the most defined of the Time Lords, in companion Rose Tyler and Time Agent Jack Harness […]

‘Unleash #1′ Review (Amigo Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jennifer Van Gessel, El Torres | Art by Nacho Tenorio, Sergio Mora | Published by Amigo Comics I have very much liked what I have seen so far of Amigo Comics, producing not only good quality comics, but also trying to find something that little bit different, something to stand out in a […]

‘Dark Souls #2′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by George Mann | Art by Alan Quah | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp The first issue of this book was something of a curiosity to me. How do you take a, admittedly very good cult favourite, open world game with disposable characters and construct a linear story with characters the […]

‘Johnny Red #7′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Garth Ennis | Art by Keith Burns | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp Last issue was the big game changer in the book when we moved beyond the guys on the floor, that is the exploits of Johnny and Falcon Squadron, and into the politics of what has been going […]

‘Straitjacket’ Graphic Novel Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by El Torres | Art by Guillermo Sanna | Published by Amigo Comics I hate it when the title of a book sometimes has no relation to the content within, or has very little relevance. No problem with that here, we have a title and a book that does exactly what it says on […]

‘Rivers of London: Night Witch #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp So far the ‘Night Witch’ arc has been very entertaining, lots of nice character work adding to the ongoing storyline involving a lot of Russian things – Russian gangsters, Russian witches, Russian supernatural beings. To […]

‘Alan Dracon #1′ Review (Amigo Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written and Drawn by Stefano Martino | Published by Amigo Comics It’s quite refreshing sometimes to go into a new book knowing very little about it, and with this book I had the hat-trick. I didn’t know the publisher, the creator, or the character. The publisher, Amigo Comics, are a relatively new company working out […]

‘Samurai #3′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jean-Francois Di Giorgio | Art by Frederic Genet | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp As I have done with both previous issues of Samurai, I read this through twice. Once, to read the actual story, the second time just to look at the visuals. Not only is Genet’s artwork amazing […]

‘Assassin’s Creed #8′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Anthony Del Col, Conor McCreery | Art by Neil Edwards | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp Last issue was a little disappointing, as the great pace and progression of the first two issues gave way to an issue of essentially treading water, where very little actually happened. We still followed […]

‘Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor #2.9′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Nick Abadzis | Art by Iolanda Zanfardino | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp Every month when I sit down to read this title I hope will it to grab me and make me like it more than I do. For me it has consistently been just ‘ok’, partly because of […]

‘Heroes: Godsend #3′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Joey Falco | Art by Roy Allan Martinez | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp So far this Heroes story arc, focusing on Farah Nazan, aka Godsend, has been decent. Not as good as it should be, but not falling as short as the previous Heroes mini-series. Not as good as […]

‘Penny Dreadful #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Krysty Wilson-Cairns | Art by Louie De Martins | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp Sometimes being a fan can work both ways when you review a book. You can either be too lenient, wanting so much for it to be good that you overlook flaws you would normally point out, […]

‘Vikings #1′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Cavan Scott | Art by Staz Johnson | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp In the interests of full disclosure I have never actually watched the Vikings TV show on which this is based, though not because I never thought it looked interesting. With so many good shows on at the […]

‘Deus Ex: Children’s Crusade #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Alex Irvine | Art by John Aggs | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp This has so far been a very solid book, thanks in large part to scripter Alex Irvine. The book is designed to be a prologue of sorts to the upcoming game Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, and Irvine […]

Written by Victor Gischler | Art by Rodney Ramos, Ivan Rodriguez, Renarto Arlem, Rui Woberto | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp My review of the first issue of this series was quite harsh, which is rare for me as I always try to see the positives in any book.

‘Assassin’s Creed: Templars #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Fred Van Lente | Art by Dennis Calero | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp Assassin’s Creed: Templars was a welcome addition to the Assassins Creed universe, switching the focus as it did from the Assassins Guild to the Templar Order. As all the books and games have established, neither side […]

‘The Troop #5′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Noel Clarke | Art by Joshua Cassara | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp Ah, my favourite dysfunctional family book. Try as I might, I cannot find a better description for this book than X-Men/Fantastic Four on steroids. There’s also more than a passing nod to the self destructiveness of the […]

‘Samurai #2′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jean-Francois Di Giorgio | Art by Frederic Genet | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp Whatever the other merits of the book, and there are quite a few so don’t get worried, what you will probably take away with you is the artwork. I don’t ordinarily review the artwork first, as […]
