‘Man Plus #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Andre Lima Araujo | Art by Andre Lima Araujo | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp Our introduction to Olissipo City last issue was an interesting one.

‘Man Plus #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Andre Lima Araujo | Art by Andre Lima Araujo | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp Cyberpunk. A word that reflects both the best of science fiction, and the worst.

‘Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor #2.6′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Nick Abadzis | Art by Elena Casagrande | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp After quite a slow start, this series is starting to find its feet a little better.

‘Bloodthirsty #5′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Mark Landry | Art by Richard Pace | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp Bloodthirsty has been a pretty enjoyable read up to now. Nicely plotted storylines, decent character development, a slightly surreal blend of action and horror all topped off with a side helping of social conscience and political comment. […]

‘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 […]

‘Deus Ex: Children’s Crusade #1′ Review

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. […]

‘The Troop #3′ Review

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. A lot of other stuff, like character building, romance, action etc are also welcome, but without 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 […]

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)

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.

by Dean Fuller

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.

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 […]

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.
