‘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 […]

‘Blade Runner 2019 #6’ Review (Titan Comics)

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 […]

‘Predator: Hunters III #1’ Review (Dark Horse Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Chris Warner | Art by Brian Thies | Published by Dark Horse Comics Dark Horse Comics must thank their lucky stars every year that they managed to get their mitts on the Predator franchise many moons ago, as it’s the gift that keeps on giving. Going way back to 1989, Predator: Concrete Jungle […]

‘DC’s Crimes of Passion: 80 Page Giant’ Review

by Dean Fuller

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 […]

‘Blackbird: Volume 1’ Graphic Novel Review (Image Comics)

by Chris Cummings

Written by Sam Humphries | Art by Jen Bartel | Published by Image Comics | Format: Paperback, 168pp From writer Sam Humphries (Harley Quinn, Nightwing) and artist Jen Bartel (Black Panther) comes a new Image Comics neo-noir series. I was immediately struck by the gorgeous cover of the trade paperback which was also the cover […]

‘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. You don’t get continually published since 1941 unless you have something that clicks with readers after all. She […]

‘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 […]

‘Guardians of the Galaxy #1’ Review (Marvel Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Al Ewing | Art by Juann Cabal | Published by Marvel Comics How many times can you reboot a book I hear you cry. Well, this being Marvel/ Disney, quite a few times as it turns out. The days of tight continuity and ongoing books are pretty much gone now, and it seems […]

‘Jessica Jones: Blind Spot #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Kelly Thompson | Art by Mattia De Iulis | Published by Marvel Comics I’ve always loved Jessica Jones, ever since her first appearance back in 2001. (Nineteen years?! where did that go) Her original series, Alias, was created by Brian Michael Bendis and artist Michael Gaydos, with fab David Mack covers, and is […]

‘ROM: Dire Wraiths #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Chris Ryall | Art by Luca Pizzari | Published by IDW Comics So, scanning the new releases for something new to try, this book seemed to jump up into my arms (virtually of course, online comics tend to stay where they are). Those of a certain vintage like me have very fond memories […]

‘Wonder Woman: Warbringer’ Graphic Novel Review (DC Ink)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Louise Simonson | Art by Kit Seaton | Published by DC Comics/DC Ink I suppose it was inevitable that DC’s biggest female hero would get the Young Adult makeover at some point, and it’s slightly surprising it’s several books in. We’ve seen young versions of Black Canary, Catwoman, Mera, Raven, and Harley Quinn, […]

‘Robotech Remix #4’ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Brenden Fletcher | Art by Elmer Damaso | Published by Titan Comics Issue 4, which I guess means its end-of-the-first-story-arc time, this being the era of the four issue story, which coincidentally package up rather nicely into trade paperbacks. Completely unrelated of course. Sometimes of course this means stories are artificially scrunched into […]

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel | Art by Mariano Laclaustra | Published by Titan Comics When I think about it too deeply, the last two issues of this book have been pretty lightweight in many respects, yet I have enjoyed them immensely. Even when other story arcs in the past have been a bit […]
