‘Robin: 80th Anniversary 100-Page Spectacular’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Various | Art by Various | Published by DC Comics I’ve written elsewhere that I seem to have reviewed a whole lot of these over-sized DC Special’s of late. Not a complaint, mind you, far from it. DC could have quite easily stuck out a load of old reprints and hastily cobbled together […]

‘Blade Runner 2019 #7′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Michael Green, Mike Johnson | Art by Andres Guinaldo | Published by Titan Comics This arc, as I mentioned last time round, took something of a left turn by taking place several years after the first story, and by transferring the action off world. On top of that, the big bad Tyrell Corporation […]

‘The Flash #750′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Various | Art by Various | Published by DC Comics I seem to be reviewing a whole lot of 80 Page Giants of late, most of which have been appearing from DC. That’s not a complaint mind you. I’m still an avid collector of the DC Dollar Comics issues from the late 1970′s […]

‘Captain Marvel: Cosmic CAT-tastrophe’ Graphic Novel Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Sam Maggs | Art by Sweeney Boo | Published by IDW Publishing / Marvel Comics I must confess that when this book first came across my desk, I thought it was Marvel’s attempt to jump on DC’s bandwagon. DC have been producing a very good series of Young Adult (12-16) and Middle Grade […]

‘Fantastic Four: Grimm Noir #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Gerry Duggan | Art by Ron Garney | Published by Marvel Comics I’m assuming if you are reading this that you like superhero comics. I certainly do. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy taking in a lot of different genres, but ultimately always come back to the big guys in tights punching each […]

‘Doctor Who: The Thirteenth Doctor – Year 2 #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jody Houser | Art by Roberta Ingranata | Published by Titan Comics The saying ‘hit the ground running’ is often overused, but I think it’s fair to say that Jody Houser’s first story arc of Year 2 for The Thirteenth Doctor has done just that. Having just discovered that this first arc, a […]

‘Death to the Army of Darkness #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ryan Parrott | Art by Jacob Edgar | Published by Dynamite Entertainment For a franchise that started way back in 1982, as a low budget indie film, The Evil Dead has sure got some staying power. Actually shot in 1979, it took a couple of years to get released, but then became a […]

‘Gwen Stacy #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Christos Gage | Art by Todd Nauck | Published by Marvel Comics I was always a Gwen Stacy guy. Sure, Mary Jane had all the great one liners and looked spectacular, but Gwen had the class and grace. Gwen also features heavily in one of the most notorious events in Spider-Man’s history (spoiler […]

‘Superman Heroes #1′ Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Brian Michael Bendis, Matt Fraction, Greg Rucka | Art by Various | Published by DC Comics When a book proudly proclaims on its cover ‘The future of the DC Universe begins here!’, it’s hard not to pick it up just to see if it’s true or not. Throw in the fact it’s an […]

by Dean Fuller

Written by Michael Green, Mike Johnson | Art by Andres Guinaldo | Published by Titan Comics Second story arcs are always tricky, maintaining that initial enthusiasm and buzz, but the new story arc Green and Johnson started last issue was a doozy. They took all the things that everyone really enjoyed from the first 4 […]

Written by Various | Art by Various | Published by DC Comics When you have read as many comics down the years as me, literally in the tens of thousands, you’ve pretty much seen it all. Quirky indie books? Check. Blockbuster multi-title crossovers? Check. Inter-company books? Check. Monthly books published on time? Che….er, well I’ve […]

‘Wonder Woman #750′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Various | Art by Various | Published by DC Comics Wonder Woman has had quite the renaissance in recent years, and as one of the Big Three (with Superman and Batman) it is thoroughly deserved.

‘Doctor Who: The Thirteenth Doctor – Year 2 #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jody Houser | Art by Roberta Ingranata | Published by Titan Comics Last issue was a fantastic start to Year 2 of The Thirteenth Doctor. Partly because Jody Houser writes a blindingly good Thirteen, partly because David Tennant’s Tenth Doctor appeared and still steals every scene he is in, and partly because the […]

‘Rivers of London: The Fey & The Furious #4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel | Art by Mariano Laclaustra | Published by Titan Comics The thing I like about Rivers of London is the unpredictability of the storylines. When a new arc begins, I read the first few pages and think I have a pretty clear idea where the story is going, and […]
