‘Minky Woodcock: The Girl Who Handcuffed Houdini #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Cynthia Von Buhler | Art by Cynthia Von Buhler | Published by Titan Comics Sometimes we pick up books and comics because they feature favourite characters of ours, or they feature writers and/or artists that we like a lot. That’s my normal practice, though of course as a reviewer I probably see a […]

‘Penny Dreadful #7′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Chris King | Art by Jesus Hervas | Published by Titan Comics I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, you’ll be hard pressed to find a more faithful adaptation of a property from one medium to another. Apart from the fact Penny Dreadful works incredibly well in comic book form anyway, […]

‘Doomsday Clock #1′ Review

by Dan Clark

Written by Geoff Johns | Art by Gary Frank | Published by DC Comics For many comic book fans Watchmen should be an untouchable work of art that is not interfered with by anyone. So the simple concept of Doomsday Clock will be too much to get beyond. DC has already shown they do not […]

‘Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor #3.9′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Richard Dinnick | Art by Pasquale Qualano | Published by Titan Comics So now we have finished with all that big multi-title crossover malarkey, we can return to good old solid solo adventure fun. Well, not entirely solo as The Doctor has Bill of course, but you know what I mean. Comic book […]

‘The Punisher #218′ Review

by Dan Clark

Written by Matthew Rosenberg | Art by Guiu Vilanova | Published by Marvel Comics With the launch of Marvel Legacy and his upcoming Netflix series, this is the perfect time for The Punisher to become a big deal again in the world of comics. Not since Garth Ennis penned the title was Punisher a major […]

‘Dan Dare #2′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Peter Milligan | Art by Alberto Foche | Published by Titan Comics I always think Dan Dare, rather like Captain America and Superman, is a victim of his own iconic status. He’s great as a symbol, as a painted cover or on a poster, but when it comes to putting him in good […]

‘Rivers of London: Cry Fox #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Andrew Cartmel, Ben Aaronovitch | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics Always a pleasure when a new issue of Rivers of London arrives, even more so when it is the start of a new story arc. You never quite know where this book will be going, so rich is the […]

‘Robotech #4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Brian Wood | Art by Marco Turini | Published by Titan Comics With three issues under the belt it is time for a mid-term assessment of Robotech. I’m thinking a solid B, though a book that only looks like getting better rather than dropping off. I have been finding myself enjoying the nostalgia, […]

‘Captain America #695′ Review

by Dan Clark

Written by Mark Waid | Art by Chris Samnee | Published by Marvel Comics Captain America #695 is everything this new Marvel Legacy relaunch should be modeling itself after. First and foremost it is a great issue that encapsulates everything that is great about the character of Steve Rogers. For those who would argue a […]

‘Doctor Who: The Lost Dimension #8 – Omega’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by George Mann, Cavan Scott | Art by Mariano LacLaustra | Published by Titan Comics Two things can make or break a mini-series. Having a great concept, to draw the reader in, and both knowing when to end the story and making the conclusion good enough to justify the time and money the reader […]

‘Fighting American #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Gordon Rennie | Art by Duke Mighten | Published by Titan Comics Smell that? That’s fresh air. That huge waft of it you detected last month came exclusively from this book. Although I love my Time Lords and their timey-wimey stuff, and Assassins with their Creed, it’s always a pleasure when something appears […]

‘Doctor Who: The Lost Dimension #7′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Emma Beeby | Art by Ivan Rodriguez, I.N.J Culbard and more | Published by Titan Comics I am having something of a love/ hate relationship with this ‘event’, as I have detailed in previous reviews of it. It’s hard to not love any time multiple Doctors team up, rather like a cosmic The […]

Wolverine Wednesday #6

by Ian Wells

Weapon X #9-#10 Writers: Greg Pak & Fred Van Lente | Artist: Marc Borstel & Ibraim Roberson | Colourist: Frank D’Armata | Letters: Joe Caramagna When it started, the premise of a Wolverine/Hulk hybrid seemed like a fun idea considering the character’s shared history. It was the perfect way to launch a new series: double […]

‘Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor #3.8′ Review (aka The Lost Dimension – Part 6)

by Dean Fuller

Written by George Mann | Art by Rachael Stott, Marcelo Salaza | Published by Titan Comics So, The Lost Dimension arc, this year’s flavour of the now yearly multiple Doctors event, comes once again to a monthly book. I have said elsewhere that this year’s event, pretty much giving most of The Doctor’s incarnations their […]

‘Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor #3.10′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Nick Abadzis | Art by Giorgia Sposito | Published by Titan Comics Very rare to get more than a one or two-parter in the Who books, so hats off to Nick Abadzis for this fine four-parter. Vortex Butterflies has been a very entertaining arc, with a little bit of everything. Old faces returning, […]

‘Assassin’s Creed Reflections’ Graphic Novel Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ian Edginton | Art by Valeria Favoccia | Published by Titan Comics Creatively, Assassin’s Creed is the gift that keeps on giving. Its core concept, of using the Animus to jump into any specific point of time, is essentially a free licence for creators to have fun. And they have, ever since the […]

‘Doctor Who: The Lost Dimension #5′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Emma Beeby, Gordon Rennie | Art by Ivan Rodriguez, Wellington Diaz, Anderson Cabral | Published by Titan Comics The previous four issues of this ‘event’ series have been good enough, but I still have this nagging feeling something is still missing. Don’t get me wrong, multiple Doctors is always fun. You could have […]

‘Dan Dare #1′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Peter Milligan | Art by Alberto Foche | Published by Titan Comics When it comes to my comic book reading preferences, I have always been an unashamed fan of American comic books. I read my first Superman story at the age of 6 and never looked back. At that time though, in the […]

‘Wolfenstein #2′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Dan Watters | Art by Piotr Kowalski, Ronilson Freire | Published by Titan Comics I think it’s fair to say last issue was a bit of a mixed bag. We had three separate but interlocking stories, all with both relevance to each other and to the upcoming Wolfenstein II game that will be […]

Written by Alex Paknadel, Dan Watters | Art by Jose Holder | Published by Titan Comics With all the great stuff out there on the shelves at the moment, even the great stuff being put out by Titan Comics alone, this title has fallen a little under the radar. Although I wouldn’t put it at […]
