‘Dark Knights: Metal – Deluxe Edition’ Review

by Phil Wheat

Written by Scott Snyder | Art by Greg Capullo | Published by DC Comics | Format: Hardcover, 128pp Metal is one of those “event comics” that, even as a more casual reader of DC’s particular brand of comics, was hard to ignore. The bombastic nature of the marketing, the sheer aduklation poured upon the book […]

‘The Prisoner #3′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Peter Milligan | Art by Colin Lorimer | Published by Titan Comics This series has been blinding since it’s relaunch. Smart, sassy, political, satirical, and full of sleight of hand. Know what’s going on? No you don’t. You only think you know what’s going on, rather like Breen, the new Number 6. Oh […]

‘Mickey Spillane’s Mike Hammer #1′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Max Allan Collins | Art by Marcelo Salaza, Marcio Freire | Published by Hard Case Crime/Titan Comics I’m guessing pretty much everyone has heard of Mickey Spillane, even those not really fans of the hardboiled detective genre, which he practically invented. When Mickey Spillane’s most famous character, Mike Hammer, first hit the stands […]

‘Tank Girl All-Stars #1′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Alan Martin | Art by Various | Published by Titan Comics So, Tank Girl is 30 years old this year. How the hell did that happen? Seems like only yesterday I was at university and I had to pretend to every girl I was trying to pick up that I was a big […]

‘Rivers of London: Water Weed #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Andrew Cartmel | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics Seems to have been an absolute age since there has been a new Rivers of London book, and looking back the last issue of the ‘Cry Fox’ arc was back in February. How dare Cartmel and Aaronovitch have any time off. […]

‘Supergirl: Being Super’ Graphic Novel Review

by Phil Wheat

Written by Mariko Tamaki | Art by Joelle Jones | Format: Paperback, 208pp | Published by DC Comics I’ll be honest as a comic reader I tend to stick to Marvel’s output. That’s not to say I’m not a DC fan, it’s more that my desire to read the companies output has waned over the […]

‘Doctor Who: The Seventh Doctor #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Andrew Cartmel | Art by Christopher Jones | Published by Titan Comics Now I’m willing to bet that among the many incarnations of The Doctor, the Sylvester McCoy Seventh Doctor is not up there as one of your favourites. Personally, I never really took to him. Too goofy for me, achingly intent to […]

‘Penny Dreadful #10′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Chris King | Art by Jesus Hervas | Published by Titan Comics I recall reading somewhere that Chris King said that he really loved these characters, which as the Executive Producer of the TV show you would expect him to say. He does, however have a funny way of showing it. The characters […]

All New Wolverine #35 Writer: Tom Taylor | Artist: Ramon Rosanas | Colourist: Nolan Woodard | Letters: Cory Petit Here is a review I wish I didn’t have to write.

‘Fighting American: The Ties That Bind #4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Gordon Rennie | Art by Andie Tong | Published by Titan Comics Always a bittersweet moment when we reach the final issue of each arc, as we do here with ‘The Ties That Bind’ storyline. It’s been, of course, a lot of fun. So much so, that it got me thinking that Fighting […]

‘The Prisoner #2′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Peter Milligan | Art by Colin Lorimer | Published by Titan Comics What a great re-launch of this property issue 1 was. Any doubts there were about The Prisoner, the epitome of late 1960′s quirky TV along with shows like The Avengers (that’s Steed and Mrs. Peel, not Iron Man and Captain America […]

‘Assassin’s Creed Origins #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Anthony Del Col | Art by PJ Kaiowa | Published by Titan Comics Still on the fence a little with this book so far. Sure, the writing and artwork are not bad, pretty good in fact, but so far I am not really seeing a story that had to be told. Once we […]

‘Robotech #9′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Simon Furman | Art by Marco Turini | Published by Titan Comics With Robotech #9, Simon Furman finally flies solo. Brian Wood’s four issue handover, where they shared billing as co-plotters, has finished and the book will stand or fall on Furman alone. So far, admittedly it may be a little too early […]

‘Action Comics #1000′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Various | Art by Various | Published by DC Comics DC Comics have of late been celebrating the 80th anniversary of both a flagship title, in Action Comics, and their flagship character, Superman.

‘Action Comics: 80 Years of Superman – Deluxe Edition’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Various | Art by Various | Published by DC Comics To paraphrase John Lennon, before Action Comics there was nothing. Action Comics was the comic book industry equivalent of the Big Bang. Prior to Action Comics you had comic books, but these were usually collections of previously published newspaper strips, repackaged to encourage […]

‘Assassin’s Creed Origins #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Anthony Del Col | Art by PJ Kaiowa | Published by Titan Comics The historical angle has always been what has given Assassin’s Creed its unique ‘thing’, the clever weaving of historical fact with Assassin’s Creed fiction. Real people interacting with Creed created characters. Previous games in the relatively recent past have been […]
