‘Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor #2.5′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Nick Abadzis | Art by Elena Casagrande | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp If I said I have been a little disappointed so far by Nick Abadzis’s run on this book that would probably be a little harsh. It’s not a bad book at all, but for me it has […]

by Dean Fuller

Written by Alex Irvine | Art by John Aggs | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp For those not in the know, Deus Ex is a series of first person computer games dating back to 2000. They all take place in the near future, in a kind of slightly clichéd dystopian cyberpunk society. […]

by Dean Fuller

Written by Noel Clarke | Art by Joshua Cassara | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp Conflict. If there is one thing a writer must both introduce and maintain to make for good drama, it’s conflict.

‘Johnny Red #4′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Garth Ennis | Art by Keith Burns | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp Johnny Red has been a lot of things since Issue 1 came out. A loving homage to those old war comics, told with modern eyes, probably the best non-superhero title out there right now, and genuinely surprising […]

‘Gutter Magic #1′ Review (IDW)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Rich Douek | Art by Brett Barkley | Published by IDW/Comics Experience | Format: Paperback, 32pp Now and then a book comes along that if not trying something completely different, at least tries to give a new take, a different perspective, on a genre that has in all probability been done to death.

‘Doctor Who: The Eighth Doctor #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by George Mann | Art by Emma Vieceli | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp To date I have been very underwhelmed by this series.

‘Bloodthirsty #4′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Mark Landry | Art by Richard Pace | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp Four issues in and Bloodthirsty has been a great book so far, mixing up a big mish-mash of action, conspiracy, boo hiss bad guys, morally conflicted good guys, and a backdrop that can be both seedy and […]

‘The Troop #2′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Noel Clarke | Art by Joshua Cassara | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp The first issue of The Troop was not only a pleasant surprise, but far exceeded my expectations.

Edited by Natalie Clubb | Senior Art Editor Rob Farmer | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 176pp There was a time, pre-Netflix and Amazon Prime, when network TV ruled the airwaves in the U.S, and churned out a steady supply of middle of the road TV shows, firmly aimed at the ‘average viewer’ […]

‘Doctor Who: The Eighth Doctor #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by George Mann | Art by Emma Vieceli | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp I found issue 1 of this series a mixed blessing.

‘Assassin’s Creed #3′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Anthony Del Col, Conor McCreery | Art by Neil Edwards | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp As tie-ins go, this has been a pretty impressive effort so far by all involved, using the familiarity of the Assassin’s Creed brand and world, but expanding it by introducing new characters and new […]

‘Heroes: Vengeance #4′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Seamus Kevin Fahey, Zach Craley | Art by Rubine | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp So far I’ve found Heroes: Vengeance to be decent, without really stretching itself in any way to make it more of an essential read. The idea of the Heroes Reborn minis is a good one, giving […]

by Dean Fuller

Written by Garth Ennis | Art by Keith Burns | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp I thought the first issue of this series was one of the best issue 1′s of the year in any category,  never mind that it was one of the best non-superhero comics in some time. Garth Ennis […]

‘Bloodthirsty #3′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Mark Landry | Art by Ashley Witter | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp So far Bloodthirsty has been a very promising start to an intriguing, and very different series.

‘The Troop #1′ Review (Titan Comics)
