‘Robotech #22’ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Simon Furman | Art by Hendry Prasetya | Published by Titan Comics The first 20 issues or so of this book were pretty fantastic. A great mix of action, political intrigue, mystery, goodies turning bad and baddies turning good, and pretty much every genre covered at some point. Even reality TV. But let’s […]

‘Batman Universe #1’ Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Brian Michael Bendis | Art by Nick Derington | Published by DC Comics One of my previous reviews was for the first issue of Superman: Up in the Sky, a limited series which is essentially collecting together all the new material from the Wal-Mart 100 page DC exclusive comics. It’s very good by […]

‘Books of Magic Vol.1: Moveable Type’ Graphic Novel Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Kat Howard | Art by Tom Fowler | Published by DC Vertigo JK Rowling stole the idea of Harry Potter from Neil Gaiman you know. Tim Hunter first appeared back in Books of Magic issue 1, January 1990, whereas Harry Potter first appeared in print in 1997. Both feature a school attending, glasses […]

‘Ryuko: Vol.1’ Graphic Novel Review

by Chris Cummings

Created by Eldo Yoshimizu | Published by Titan Comics/Hard Case Crime Now, I love me some Manga and I’m a comic book fiend, but Ryuko has a unique feel to me, it isn’t the usual sort of comic book I’m used to, not in art style or in story, and I have to say… I […]

‘The Walking Dead #193’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Robert Kirkman | Art by Charlie Adlard | Published by Image Comics Robert Kirkman was crazy. That was pretty much the consensus when he decided to launch this ongoing title in 2003. What’s so crazy with that, I hear you ask. Well, an ongoing horror comic just doesn’t really sell. An ongoing black […]

‘Superman: Up In The Sky #1’ Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Tom King | Art by Andy Kubert | Published by DC Comics Been a little while since I’ve checked in on Superman’s solo stuff, so this new issue seemed a good one to dip into. Well, sort of ‘new’, as these stories have appeared somewhere else but I doubt you’d have seen them. […]

‘Go Go Power Rangers: Forever Rangers #1’ Review (Boom Studios)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ryan Parrott | Art by Eleonora Carlini, Francesco Mortarino | Published by Boom Studios There aren’t many more recognisable characters in modern pop culture than the Power Rangers. By ‘modern’, of course, I mean over the last three decades, as Power Rangers have been with us since 1993. Even longer, if you count […]

‘Transformers/Ghostbusters: Ghost of Cybertron #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Erik Burnham | Art by Dan Schoening | Published by IDW Publishing This was a title I just couldn’t resist picking up. Although I love my superhero stuff, my Vertigo stuff, my ‘mature’ graphic novels, there will always be a part of me that is a sucker for any pop culture crossover. When […]

‘Psi-Lords #1’ Review (Valiant)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Fred Van Lente | Art by Renato Guedes | Published by Valiant Entertainment Easy to forget now, but back when Valiant Comics originally launched its first book in 1991, it was something of a game changer. Everyone now always remembers Image, with its high profile creators, but that came a year later. Valiant, […]

‘Vader: Dark Visions #5’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Dennis Hallum | Art by Geraldo Borges | Published by Marvel Comics When the Star Wars licence was with Dark Horse Comics, I tended to dip in and out quite a lot. The books were good quality, with top creators, and editorial made a conscious effort to keep a tight continuity with not […]

‘Event Leviathan #1’ Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Brian Michael Bendis | Art by Alex Maleev | Published by DC Comics I tend to find that Bendis’s name attached to a huge company-wide crossover can either be a brilliant thing or a terrible one. Bendis at the top of his game is a joy, he can write some cracking dialogue and […]

‘Criminal #5’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ed Bribaker | Art by Sean Philips | Published by Image Comics I’ve followed Criminal on and off for a few years now, usually picking up the trades rather than waiting for the individual issues. I tend to find Brubaker is so good at leaving tantalising teases at the end of individual issues […]

‘Doctor Who: The Thirteenth Doctor #8’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jody Houser | Art by Roberta Ingranata | Published by Titan Comics In this age of ‘four and done’ arcs, so those issues can be neatly packaged up as graphic novels and have their shelf lives extended, I was guessing this issue would tie up the second storyline of the book and I […]

‘Green Lantern #8’ Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Grant Morrison | Art by Liam Sharp | Published by DC Comics It’s been a while since I checked in on Green Lantern. One of the mainstays of my younger comic reading days, the Green Lantern run by Len Wein and Dave Gibbons remains one of my favourite runs on a book ever. […]

by Dean Fuller

Written by Neil Gaiman, Simon Spurrier | Art by Bilquis Evely | Published by DC Vertigo | Format: Paperback, 200pp Ah, Vertigo, the house that Neil built. Gaiman that is. Without Neil Gaiman there would probably be no Vertigo, or at least not the successful imprint it became. Being fair, it’s also right to say […]

Written by Various | Published by Titan Books | Format: Paperback, 176pp Star Wars is of course the gift that keeps on giving. Since the release of Star Wars: A New Hope back in 1977, Star Wars has dominated popular culture like nothing else until the recent incursion of Marvel Studios, and possibly the ever […]

‘Moon #1&2’ Review

by Alain Elliott

Written by Dan Thompson | Art by Steve Penfold | Published by Beyond the Bunker A sci-fi comedy comic about a crime fighting moon (with a human body, arms and legs – just a moon instead of a head) is not something I would normally read. But the simply titled Moon caught my eye at […]

‘Batman and the Outsiders #1’ Review

by Phil Wheat

Written by Brian Hill | Art by Dexter Soy | Published by DC Comics The Outsiders, at least in the 2003-2007 Judd Winick run (and to a lesser extent the Chuck Dixon penned Batman and the Outsiders run that immediately followed), is one of my favourite ever DC titles. It is also, at least in […]
