‘Vikings #1’ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Cavan Scott | Art by Staz Johnson | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp In the interests of full disclosure I have never actually watched the Vikings TV show on which this is based, though not because I never thought it looked interesting. With so many good shows on at the […]

‘Deus Ex: Children’s Crusade #3’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Alex Irvine | Art by John Aggs | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp This has so far been a very solid book, thanks in large part to scripter Alex Irvine. The book is designed to be a prologue of sorts to the upcoming game Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, and Irvine […]

by Dean Fuller

Written by Victor Gischler | Art by Rodney Ramos, Ivan Rodriguez, Renarto Arlem, Rui Woberto | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp My review of the first issue of this series was quite harsh, which is rare for me as I always try to see the positives in any book. I fully understand […]

‘Assassin’s Creed: Templars #2’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Fred Van Lente | Art by Dennis Calero | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp Assassin’s Creed: Templars was a welcome addition to the Assassins Creed universe, switching the focus as it did from the Assassins Guild to the Templar Order. As all the books and games have established, neither side […]

Graphic Novel Review: ‘Moose’

by Chris Cummings

Created by Max de Radigues | Published by Conundrum Press | Format: Paperback Moose is a graphic novel from Conundrum Press that I’ve had my eye on for a while, so when it was sent to me to read and review I was over the moon, and I read it the day it plopped through […]

‘The Troop #5’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Noel Clarke | Art by Joshua Cassara | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp Ah, my favourite dysfunctional family book. Try as I might, I cannot find a better description for this book than X-Men/Fantastic Four on steroids. There’s also more than a passing nod to the self destructiveness of the […]

by Dean Fuller

Written by Gordon Rennie, Emma Beeby | Art by Brian Williamson | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp Until reading last issue featuring the iconic Tom Baker Fourth Doctor, I had forgotten how much I enjoyed the character in comic book form.

‘Man Plus #4’ Review

by Phil Wheat

Written by Andre Lima Araujo | Art by Andre Lima Araujo | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp As I’ve pointed out in my reviews of the previous issues, this is on the surface a very derivative series, mixing up a wide variety of genres but also managing to blend them together into […]

‘Samurai #2’ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jean-Francois Di Giorgio | Art by Frederic Genet | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp Whatever the other merits of the book, and there are quite a few so don’t get worried, what you will probably take away with you is the artwork. I don’t ordinarily review the artwork first, as […]

‘Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor #2.8’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Nick Abadzis | Art by Elena Casagrande | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp Ah, the Tenth Doctor, a title I really want to like a lot more than I do. I am enjoying all the Titan Doctor Who books to varying degrees, but this one has been at the lower […]

‘Heroes: Godsend #2’ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Joey Falco | Art by Roy Allan Martinez | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp The first issue of this new Heroes Reborn mini-series was decent, without being much more. It is hard to be too critical of these Heroes mini-series, as I believe their heart is genuinely in the right […]

‘Johnny Red #6’ 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 one of the stand out series for me this year, and one I genuinely look forward to reading every month. Ennis has taken the war comic format, and all the nostalgia that goes with […]

‘Assassin’s Creed #7’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Anthony Del Col, Conor McCreery | Art by Neil Edwards | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp After last issue’s hectic pace I was curious to see if we were going to draw some breathe with this one, or that pace was just indicative of how this arc will play out. […]

‘Rivers of London: Night Witch #2’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp The first issue of the Night Witch arc was slightly odd in that the main characters of the book, PC Peter Grant and his boss Inspector Nightingale, barely featured. A lot of time was spent […]

‘Doctor Who: The 9th Doctor #1’ Review (new ongoing)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Cavan Scott | Art by Adriana Melo | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp Although by no means perfect, and admittedly coloured by more than a little nostalgia, I enjoyed the recent 9th Doctor mini-series (that’s the Christopher Eccleston incarnation of The Doctor of course) and am happy to see it […]

Written by George Mann | Art by Alan Quah | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp The link between games, comics, television and movies (and assorted merchandise and toys of course) is growing stronger by the month seemingly, and there seems to be fewer and fewer franchises left that haven’t embraced the age […]

‘Man Plus #3’ Review

Written by Andre Lima Araujo | Art by Andre Lima Araujo | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp I’m not entirely convinced Man Plus knows what it wants to be yet. Is it deliberately playing around with concepts and genres until it finds the ones that fit together the best, or is creator/writer/ […]

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, […]

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. While giving us nothing particularly new to look at, it delivered on what it promised, helped […]
