by Dean Fuller

Written by Richard Dinnick | Art by Pasquale Qualano | Published by Titan Comics I’ve heard a rumour or two that The Twelfth Doctor’s book may not be regenerating for a fourth year. I hope that’s not the case, as I think it’s been one of the stronger titles. Yes, the Twelfth Doctor isn’t the […]

‘Fighting American #4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Gordon Rennie | Art by Duke Mighten, PC De La Fuente | Published by Titan Comics This book has been ridiculously good.
