‘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. […]

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 […]

by Ian Wells

Hulkverines #1-#3 Writer: Greg Pak | Artists: Ario Anindito & Guiu Vilanova | Colourists: Morry Hollowell & Andrew Crossley | Letters: Joe Caramagna The first issue is a dense but exciting read.

‘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.

‘Moon #1&2′ Review

by Alain Elliott

Written by Dan Thompson | Art by Steve Penfold | Published by Beyond the Bunker A sci-fi comedy comic about a crime fighting moon (with a human body, arms and legs – just a moon instead of a head) is not something I would normally read. But the simply titled Moon caught my eye at […]

‘Batman and the Outsiders #1′ Review

by Phil Wheat

Written by Brian Hill | Art by Dexter Soy | Published by DC Comics The Outsiders, at least in the 2003-2007 Judd Winick run (and to a lesser extent the Chuck Dixon penned Batman and the Outsiders run that immediately followed), is one of my favourite ever DC titles. It is also, at least in […]

‘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.

Wolverine Wednesday #24

by Ian Wells

Bit of a short one this month, as Wolverine related books aren’t at a premium. I’m still refusing to pay any attention to Wolverine Infinity Watch as a matter of principle. For the future I am planning on dissecting how Wolverine’s return has been handled in the pages of Uncanny X-Men. Currently I am absorbing […]
