‘Assassin’s Creed #6′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Anthony Del Col, Conor McCreery | Art by Neil Edwards | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp The first arc of this title, Trial By Fire, turned out to be great fun. Sure, it had a few ups and downs along the way but ultimately was a solid addition to the […]

‘Rivers of London: Night Witch #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp The first Rivers of London arc, ‘Body Work‘, was a nice 5 issue jaunt, enjoyable throughout without ever really being an essential read. We got a nice grounding in the world of PC Peter Grant, […]

‘Deus Ex: Children’s Crusade #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Alex Irvine | Art by John Aggs | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp The first issue of this series was a decent addition to the rather crowded dystopian near future/ cyberpunk comic book shelf.

‘Doctor Who: The 8th Doctor #5′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by George Mann | Art by Emma Vieceli | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp Sometimes a book, a character, or a creative team, just don’t click for you no matter how hard you try to like them. The elephant in the room for me for example is Deadpool, never liked the […]

‘Independence Day #1′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Victor Gischler | Art by Steve Scott | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp Having read far too many movie tie-ins in my time, I have a observation to share. Tie-ins that use the source material but add to it, such as storylines that run alongside the main story or ones that […]

‘Assassin’s Creed: Templars #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Fred Van Lente | Art by Dennis Calero | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp The good thing about the Assassin’s Creed universe is that it has almost unlimited potential for stories, due to the Assassins Guild/ Templar Order feud running down through the centuries. You can pretty much use any […]

‘Internet Murder Revenge Fantasy’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“A youth spent coaxing an already-outdated dial-up modem into letting you log on to your favorite MUD, following friends you’d never met from server to server.” Internet Murder Revenge Fantasy is a raw, trippy memoir-cum-comic anthology from Canadian author, game developer (retired), and podcast host Merritt Kopas. Written by Kopas and illustrated by a dizzyingly talented slate of […]

by Dean Fuller

Written by Noel Clarke | Art by Joshua Cassara | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp Along with Johnny Red, The Troop has consistently been at the top of my list to read whenever a new issue appears. Both books have been of an as high, if not even higher, quality as Marvel […]

‘Samurai #1′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jean-Francois Di Giorgio | Art by Frederic Genet | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp A film in book form is the closest term of phrase I could find to sum up my first impressions of Samurai #1.

‘Doctor Who: The 9th Doctor Vol.1 – Weapons of Past Destruction’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Cavan Scott | Art by Blair Shedd, Rachel Scott | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 128pp Although not my favourite incarnation, I have a lot of affection for Christopher Eccleston’s all too short run as the 9th Doctor. After years without a show, when Dr Who looked like it was permanently […]

‘Johnny Red #5′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Garth Ennis | Art by Keith Burns | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp Johnny Red has been, without doubt, one of my favourite non-superhero books of the last year, and possibly my favourite non-DC/Marvel book.

by Dean Fuller

Written and Drawn by Alessandro Barbucci, Barbera Canepa | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Hardback, 232pp As much as I love comic books, and after reading them for far too many years it’s just as well that I do, sometimes you can get just that little bit jaded and find too much ‘sameness’ in […]
