‘Sinestro: Year of the Villain #1’ Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Mark Russell | Art by Yildray Cinar | Published by DC Comics If you love event comics, now is something of a Golden Age for you. Every second comic you pick up seems to be an event comic, tying in to that week’s big ‘it’s the end of everything’ story. It isn’t of […]

‘Doctor Who: The Thirteenth Doctor #11’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jody Houser | Art by Roberta Ingranata | Published by Titan Comics If there’s something comic fans like it’s consistency. Consistency in how the characters are portrayed, consistency in the tone of the book, consistency in the overall feel of the book, and most importantly consistency in the creative team. Luckily, this book […]

‘Spider-Gwen: Ghost Spider #1-10’ Review

by Phil Wheat

I’m a huge fan of Spider-Gwen. At first drawn to the look of the character, which is easily one of the best designs to have come out of Marvel in years, it turned out she was, across numerous books, a well-written and well-formed character too. Like Peter Parker, Spider-Gwen was flawed, more human than super-human […]

‘Robotech #23’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Simon Furman | Art by Hendry Prasetya, Pasquale Qualano | Published by Titan Comics Last issue maintained the incredibly high standard that somehow this book has managed to continue over the last 2 years. With licensed properties it is so easy to just coast along on character and brand recognition, phone in some […]

‘KIllers #1’ Review (Valiant)

by Dean Fuller

Written by B. Clay Moore | Art by Fernando Dagnino | Published by Valiant Entertainment Judging by the title, cover, and first page, subtlety is not something this title is aspiring to. That’s not a bad thing, as these days it’s a crowded comic book shop shelf you need to stand out from. Truth be […]

Wolverine Wednesday #27

by Ian Wells

Dead Man Logan #8 – #9 Writer: Ed Brisson | Artist: Mike Henderson | Colourist: Nolan Woodard | Letters: Cory Petit There were a number of Wolverine one shots over the summer I was really looking forward too. Each in their own way  were good and bad in places, but more on them later. The […]

‘Death’s Head #1’ Review (Marvel Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Tini Howard | Art by Kei Zama | Published by Marvel Comics Death’s Head was the best thing that ever came out of Marvel UK. Created by Simon Furman and Geoff Senior, he was originally created as a bit of a throwaway character, but ended up becoming a massive cult hit. The late […]

‘Stranger Things: Six #3’ Review (Dark Horse)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jody Houser | Art by Edgar Salazar, Keith Champagne | Published by Dark Horse Comics It must be said that Dark Horse Comics certainly do have a nose for sniffing out top notch licences. They have pretty much relied on them down the years, putting out some exceptional Aliens, Predator, and Star Wars […]

‘House of X #1 (Directors Cut)’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jonathan Hickman | Art by Pepe Larraz | Published by Marvel Comics Once upon a time I loved the X-Men. Hell, we all did. Easy to forget now, but for a period in the early 1980’s to early 1990’s you could forget The Avengers, Spider-Man, Iron Man, Cap, it was all about Wolverine […]

‘Teen Titans: Raven’ Graphic Novel Review (DC Ink)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Kami Garcia | Art by Gabriel Picolo | Published by DC Ink I have already read and reviewed two of the DC Ink books, featuring Mera and Selina Kyle, and enjoyed both quite a lot. Though, as DC’s foray into the Young Adult book market, these were not aimed at me, I read […]

‘Doctor Who: The Thirteenth Doctor #10’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jody Houser | Art by Roberta Ingranata | Published by Titan Comics The problem with reviewing comics every month is that you can’t review them all. You certainly like to try and widen the net at times to see what other fish are in the sea, and so some old favourites have to […]

‘Blade Runner 2019 #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Michael Green, Mike Johnson | Art by Andres Guinaldo | Published by Titan Comics For a quick ten points, any idea why Titan have chosen now to launch this book? No Google, please. Yep, that’s right, 2019 was the year that Harrison Ford’s Blade Runner movie was set. Seems very appropriate. Not only […]

‘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 […]

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
