by Dean Fuller

Written by Walter Hill, Dennis Hamill | Adapted by Matz | Art by Jef | Published by Titan Comics Can lightning strike twice?

‘Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor #2.15′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Robbie Morrison | Art by Rachel Stott | Published by Titan Comics Robbie Morrison continued his winning streak with last issue, the first of this new arc.

Graphic Novel Review: ‘Doctor Who – Supremacy of the Cybermen’

by Dean Fuller

Written by Cavan Scott, George Mann | Art by Ivan Rodriguez, Walter Geovanni | Published by Titan Comics The Cybermen, bar none, have always been my favourite Dr Who villains.

‘Anno Dracula 1895: Seven Days in Mayhem #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

‘Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor #3.3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Nick Abadzis | Art by Giorgia Sposito | Published by Titan Comics Quite the frustrating book for me this one. I continually struggle to enjoy it, but also continually will it on to make me change my mind. To make it worse, I can’t quite put my finger on what exactly doesn’t quite […]

‘The Mummy #4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Peter Milligan | Art by Ronilson Freire | Published by Titan/Hammer Comics Last issue saw radical moves for pretty much all the pieces on the chessboard that is The Mummy.

‘Rivers of London: Black Mould #5′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics The final issue of a story arc is always a mixed blessing. On the one hand, you want a resolution, you want to see how it all finishes and if it lives up to what has gone before. On […]

‘Assassin’s Creed: Uprising #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Alex Paknadel, Dan Watters | Art by Jose Holder | Published by Titan Comics The first issue of this new series last month gave me very mixed feelings if truth be told. I like Assassin’s Creed as a brand, as a concept, and I like the fact it allows you to branch out […]

by Dean Fuller

Written by Alex Paknadel | Art by Simon Fraser | Published by Titan Comics Colour me surprised to pick up this issue and find writer Rob Williams name missing, replaced by that of Alex Paknadel, a name I am mainly familiar with from the Arcadia title published by Boom! A quick check, and it seems […]

‘Masked #4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Serge Lehman | Art by Stephane Crety, Julien Hugonnard-Bert | Published by Titan Comics It’s a bit difficult to make my mind up about this book.

‘Hook Jaw #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Si Spurrier | Art by Conor Boyle | Published by Titan Comics Up to issue 3, and I’m still marveling that a book such as this is even being published in this day and age. To say it is a little different is just a slight understatement. Si Spurrier has done a good […]

‘Doctor Who: The Ninth Doctor #10′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Cavan Scott | Art by Adriana Melo | Published by Titan Comics This is a book on the up at the moment. It has been fair-to-middling for most of its publishing life, which although not bad places it near the bottom of the pile of Doctor Who titles being published. The previous UNIT […]

by Dean Fuller

Written by Paul Cornell | Art by Christopher Jones | Published by Titan Comics Ah, the Third Doctor series, one of a handful of books I really look forward to each issue. This has been a blast, a near perfect blend of nostalgia and skillful writing, of a nod to the past and a wink […]

by Kevin Haldon

Written by Bobby Joseph | Art by Joseph Samuels | Published by Knockabout Comics Usually the last thing I want in my comic book or graphic novel is politics… Usually I am looking for a book that takes me out of the real world a little bit and gives me some surreal fantastical story… Usually. […]

‘Mycroft Holmes #5′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Raymond Obstfeld | Art by Joshua Cassara | Published by Titan Comics This being Issue 5 means this is the last issue, in these days of “5 issues make the perfect graphic novel collection size”. Sometimes that artificial restriction does impact on the story, as pacing goes noticeably awry when too […]

‘Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor #3.2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Rob Williams | Art by Leandro Casco, Wellington Diaz | Published by Titan Comics What a great start to year three last issue was.
