by Dean Fuller

Written by Jody Houser | Art by Roberta Ingranata | Published by Titan Comics Been missing my Doctor Who fix of late, with obvious recent disruptions to monthly comics.

‘Batman: Three Jokers #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Geoff Johns | Art by Jason Fabok | Published by DC Black Label I think when everyone first heard of this upcoming book, they were both intrigued and confused. Three Jokers? Say what now? That’s to say nothing of the fact that the tease has been going on for 4 years or so, […]

‘Dark Nights: Death Metal Guidebook #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Various | Art by Various | Published by DC Comics I’m not entirely sure why, but DC have always been far better than Marvel with anthology books. Possibly because of their extended history, that they just have that much more material than Marvel had, and could make extra money by packaging old, sorry […]

‘Blade Runner 2019 #9’ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Michael Green, Mike Johnson | Art by Andres Guinaldo | Published by Titan Comics Was last issue a happy ending? I think so. It took 8 issues and several years in-story, but Cleo finally got her happy ending, a new start with her ‘mother’ Cleo on Arcadia. Ash’s story was more of a […]

‘The Flash #759’ Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Joshua Williamson | Art by Rafa Sandoval, Jordi Tarragona | Published by DC Comics Slightly under the radar Joshua Williamson has been putting together a mighty fine run on The Flash. I don’t know what it is about The Flash as a book, but down the years it has had some great runs […]

‘The Dreaming: Waking Hours #1’ Review (DC Black Label)

by Dean Fuller

Written by G. Willow Wilson | Art by Nick Robles | Published by DC Black Label Although at heart when I choose and read my comics I am a superhero guy, I do enjoy dipping into indie stuff and non-superhero stuff along the way. Variety is the spice of life after all. Although Superman, Spider-Man, […]

Wolverine #2-#3 Writer: Benjamin Percy | Artist: Adam Kubert | Colourist: Frank Martin | Letters: Cory Petit It has been so long since I read the first issue of the new Wolverine ongoing perhaps I should have gone back and read it before these two issues arrived in the post!

‘Empyre: The Avengers #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jim Zub | Art by Carlos Magno | Published by Marvel Comics In my recent review of Empyre #1 I made the point that Marvel of late didn’t have the greatest track record when it came to these big crossover events. Empyre #1, though, was a pleasant surprise, and I am certainly looking […]

‘Shazam: Lightning Strikes #1’ Review (DC Digital)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Dan Jurgens | Art by Travis Moore | Published by DC Digital Never really enjoyed the fact that the original Captain Marvel, the real Captain Marvel, can’t be called that due to Marvel’s use of the name for their characters. Don’t get me wrong, was (and am) a huge fan of Mar-Vell, Marvel’s […]

‘Dceased: Dead Planet #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Tom Taylor | Art by Trevor Hairsine | Published by DC Comics Yes, I know, another ‘event’ comic, but bear with me here. Firstly, DC of late have been doing these way better than Marvel have. Secondly, the DCeased books have actually been pretty good up to now. We had the original six […]

‘Marvels Snapshots: Captain America #1’ Review

‘Devil’s Highway #1’ Review (AWA Studios)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Benjamin Percy | Art by Brent Schoonover | Published by AWA Studios Never underestimate the power of a good cover. I’m not just talking about sticking a poster shot up on the front, as Marvel and DC are likely to do these days, but an actual cover that gives you a brief taster […]

Written by Various | Art by Various | Published by DC Comics I think it’s a pretty good indicator of how much The Joker has entered into popular culture that he now merits his own Anniversary Special. He’s been pretty popular since the days of the Batman TV show back in the 1960’s of course, […]

Written by Alan Burnett, Paul Dini | Art by Ty Templeton | Published by DC Comics Issue 5 and, rather shamefacedly, I have been taking this book for granted already. The problem is, I know it’s going to be good before I even start reading it, so worry I will struggle to balance a fair […]
