‘Assassin’s Creed Conspiracies #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Guillaume Dorison | Art by Patrick Pion | Published by Titan Comics At the beginning of last issues review I made the point that although many, like me, enjoy Assassin’s Creed and are happy to give anything that comes along a go, it can be incredibly confusing to readers just dipping their toes […]

‘Doctor Who: The Road to the Thirteenth Doctor #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by James Peaty | Art by Brian Williamson | Published by Titan Comics So all the teasing is nearly over, and it is nearly time to see the Thirteenth Doctor in all her glory. First though, we get to see The Twelfth Doctor strut his stuff, as we have already seen Ten and Eleven […]

‘The Raid #2′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ollie Masters | Art by Budi Setiawan | Published by Titan Comics I enjoyed the last issue, without loving it. Considering the two films worth of material that this book can pull from, the first issue felt surprisingly lightweight. What it did best was to replicate the style and feel of the films. […]

‘Mickey Spillane’s Mike Hammer #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Max Allan Collins | Art by Marcelo Salaza, Marcio Freire | Published by Titan Comics Before jumping into the review proper, a quick observation about recap pages or ‘what’s come before’ text in the front of books. As readers, we both like and need them. I reviewed the first issue of Mike Hammer […]

Wolverine Wednesday #16

Weapon X #21 – #22 Writer: Greg Pak & Fred Van Lente | Artists: Ricardo Lopez Ortiz & Yildiray Cinar | Colourist: Frank D’Armata | Letters: Joe Caramagna I am so glad the new direction for the series is finally here. Issues twenty and twenty one were so poor compared to the high standard set in the […]

‘Penny Dreadful #11′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Chris King | Art by Jesus Hervas | Published by Titan Comics I know they say good things are worth waiting for, but it’s been close to three months since the last issue of Penny Dreadful. Yikes. That’s enough to test even my memory, which is a shame as the book was racing […]

‘Assassin’s Creed Conspiracies #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Guillaume Dorison | Art by Jean-Baptiste Hostache | Published by Titan Comics Ok, so I’m willing to bet another Assassin’s Creed book is going to divide opinion in an obvious way. If you like Assassin’s Creed, the games, books, novels etc, like I do, any new Assassin’s Creed story is a good thing. If […]

‘Robotech #12′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Simon Furman | Art by Hendry Prasetya | Published by Titan Comics Although not always fully on board with some of Simon Furman’s plotting, and at times execution of story, the man does do a fine job of juggling multiple plots. The good thing about having plenty of plots on the go at […]

‘Rivers of London: Water Weed #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Andrew Cartmel | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics Several story arcs in, and I finally bit the bullet and started to read the Rivers of London novels alongside the comics. Though, funnily enough, I actually like the comics more (at this stage of course, several more books to go […]

‘Doctor Who: The Road to the Thirteenth Doctor #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by James Peaty | Art by Pasquale Qualano | Published by Titan Comics So, issue 2 has rolled around fast for this, The Road to the Thirteenth Doctor. James Peaty returns to script, though The Eleventh Doctor has replaced the Tenth of last issue, and Pasquale Qualano steps in as the new artist. This […]

‘The Raid #1′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ollie Masters | Art by Budi Setiawan | Published by Titan Comics The words ‘cult hit’ are bandied around a lot these days, perhaps a bit too freely. Rather like the over use of the word ‘supermodel’, but don’t get me started on that… The Raid film, and subsequent pop culture love, actually […]

‘Doctor Who: The Seventh Doctor #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Andrew Cartmel | Art by Christopher Jones | Published by Titan Comics I know some fans out there have been loving this, and I feel a little bad not being quite so gushing in my praise as they have been. This has been a reasonably good book, but not much more. I have […]

‘Batman: White Knight’ Graphic Novel Review

by Dan Clark

Writing and Art by Sean Murphy | Published by DC Comics The world of comics has long been filled with different versions of Batman. He is basically the Madonna of comics, reinventing himself for each new generation: from Adam West’s campy portrayal, to Frank Millers’ Dark Knight, to Christopher Nolan’s Batman in the real world. […]

‘The Prisoner #4′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Peter Milligan | Art by Colin Lorimer | Published by Titan Comics What’s the sign of a good book? Really making you look forward to that next issue. What’s the sign of a GREAT book? One that makes you check the schedules each week to see when it’s going to appear. For me, […]

Wolverine Wednesday #15

by Ian Wells

Old Man Logan #43-#44 Writer: Ed Brisson | Artist: Juan Ferreyra | Letters: Cory Petit Can we just delay the return of Wolverine for a few more months maybe even a year? Or just give Ed Brisson writing duties when Wolverine does return. Another solid two issues that hopefully leads to a satisfying conclusion next […]

‘The Prisoner: Original Art Edition’ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jack Kirby, Steve Englehart | Art by Jack Kirby, Gil Kane | Published by Titan Comics I’ll be honest here, and say this won’t really be a review. A review is when you approach something objectively, weigh up its pros and cons, and hopefully throw in some entertaining prose. This book, the fabled […]

‘Rivers of London: Water Weed #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Andrew Cartmel | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics Last issue was the first one we have seen where the fab creative team that has so far guided this book along was no more. Ok, maybe that’s overstating it a tad, as both Andrew Cartmel, as writer, and Lee Sullivan, […]

‘Dr. Who: The Road to the Thirteenth Doctor #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by James Peaty | Art by Iolanda Zanfardino | Published by Titan Comics You would have to be living under a rock to not realise that a new Doctor is on the horizon, with the regeneration of Peter Capaldi’s Doctor last Christmas into Jodie Whittaker’s Thirteenth Doctor. It’s a regeneration of course that has […]

‘Doctor Who: The Seventh Doctor #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Andrew Cartmel | Art by Christopher Jones | Published by Titan Comics As far as rehabilitations of characters go, last issue was a pretty good one for The Seventh Doctor. The Sylvester McCoy and Colin Baker incarnations were probably the lowest ebb for The Doctor, and personally I have little love for either […]

‘The Beautiful Death’ Graphic Novel Review

by Alain Elliott

Written by Mathieu Bablet | Art by Mathieu Bablet | Published by Titan Comics As far as comic books go, I cant say I’ve read many ‘end of the world-type’ books that didn’t involve zombies. But I have of course watched many films with different ideas, so I was looking forward to see what the […]

‘Robotech #10′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Simon Furman | Art by Marco Turini | Published by Titan Comics Dare I say it, but this book feels a little like it’s treading water. That may be overstating it a little, but although I’m all for teasing out plotlines over several issues, I’m not so keen on big reveals being pushed […]

‘Assassin’s Creed Origins #4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Anthony Del Col | Art by PJ Kaiowa | Published by Titan Comics This series so far has been…ok. Not bad in any way, in fact there have been a few nice moments, but it has never raised itself above a certain level. Partly I think this is because even though it is […]
