‘Rivers of London: Monday Monday #4’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel | Art by Jose Maria Beroy | Published by Titan Comics This being the concluding chapter of the ‘Monday Monday’ arc, I think it’s fair to say I’ve found it quite an uneven one. I get what Aaronovitch and Cartmel have tried to do, by having a central storyline […]

‘Rivers of London: Monday Monday #3’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel | Art by Jose Maria Beroy | Published by Titan Comics So we’ve reached issue 3 of this particular story arc and it’s all been a little different to normal. I hate to use the word ‘disjointed’, but the jumping around between different characters and different points of view […]

‘Rivers of London: Monday Monday #2’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel | Art by Jose Maria Beroy | Published by Titan Comics As last issue showed, this arc was looking to be a little bit different, at least as first, by having Peter firmly in the background and having a minor character or two take centre stage. It worked very […]

‘Rivers of London: Monday Monday #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel | Art by Jose Maria Beroy | Published by Titan Comics The way you know a good character is by the company he keeps. Peter Grant most definitely keeps good company. I don’t just mean his immediate cast of course, we see plenty of them, but also the extended […]

‘Rivers of London: The Fey & The Furious #4’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel | Art by Mariano Laclaustra | Published by Titan Comics The thing I like about Rivers of London is the unpredictability of the storylines. When a new arc begins, I read the first few pages and think I have a pretty clear idea where the story is going, and […]

‘Rivers of London: The Fey & The Furious #3’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel | Art by Mariano Laclaustra | Published by Titan Comics When I think about it too deeply, the last two issues of this book have been pretty lightweight in many respects, yet I have enjoyed them immensely. Even when other story arcs in the past have been a bit […]

‘Rivers of London: The Fey & The Furious #2’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel | Art by Mariano Laclaustra | Published by Titan Comics Last issue was fun, wasn’t it. Not often you get a mash up of street racing and magic, but then that’s what Rivers of London specialises in. Not just those two subjects of course, but in making unlikely combinations […]

‘Rivers of London: Action at a Distance #3’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Andrew Cartmel | Art by Brian Williamson | Published by Titan Comics So far this has been reading as a kind of old fashioned pulp story, albeit with a dash of magic thrown in. That’s a compliment, as it seeks to evoke the 1950’s atmosphere of its setting and does that really well. […]

‘Rivers of London: Action at a Distance #2’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Andrew Cartmel | Art by Brian Williamson | Published by Titan Comics I loved the first issue of the new story arc that we saw last time round. Ticked quite a few boxes for me. We got some period adventure, which is always nice. We learnt something new, again, very nice. Some spotlight […]

‘Rivers of London: Action at a Distance #1’ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Andrew Cartmel | Art by Brian Williamson | Published by Titan Comics The previous arc, ‘Water Weed’, was different in that it was the first written solely by Andrew Cartmel. No worry was necessary though, as it turned out pretty good, with I’m assuming creator/formerly co-writer Ben Aaronovitch serving as a sort of […]

‘Rivers of London: Water Weed #4’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Andrew Cartmel | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics So here we are, the final issue of the ‘Water Weed’ arc, and although it has been enjoyable, it has also meandered a little here and there and has not quite offered up as much as it promised. I’ve certainly enjoyed […]

‘Rivers of London: Water Weed #3’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Andrew Cartmel | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics Several story arcs in, and I finally bit the bullet and started to read the Rivers of London novels alongside the comics. Though, funnily enough, I actually like the comics more (at this stage of course, several more books to go […]

‘Doctor Who: The Seventh Doctor #3’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Andrew Cartmel | Art by Christopher Jones | Published by Titan Comics I know some fans out there have been loving this, and I feel a little bad not being quite so gushing in my praise as they have been. This has been a reasonably good book, but not much more. I have […]

‘Rivers of London: Water Weed #2’ Review

Written by Andrew Cartmel | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics Last issue was the first one we have seen where the fab creative team that has so far guided this book along was no more. Ok, maybe that’s overstating it a tad, as both Andrew Cartmel, as writer, and Lee Sullivan, […]

‘Doctor Who: The Seventh Doctor #2’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Andrew Cartmel | Art by Christopher Jones | Published by Titan Comics As far as rehabilitations of characters go, last issue was a pretty good one for The Seventh Doctor. The Sylvester McCoy and Colin Baker incarnations were probably the lowest ebb for The Doctor, and personally I have little love for either […]

‘Rivers of London: Water Weed #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Andrew Cartmel | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics Seems to have been an absolute age since there has been a new Rivers of London book, and looking back the last issue of the ‘Cry Fox’ arc was back in February. How dare Cartmel and Aaronovitch have any time off. […]

‘Doctor Who: The Seventh Doctor #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Andrew Cartmel | Art by Christopher Jones | Published by Titan Comics Now I’m willing to bet that among the many incarnations of The Doctor, the Sylvester McCoy Seventh Doctor is not up there as one of your favourites. Personally, I never really took to him. Too goofy for me, achingly intent to […]

Written by Andrew Cartmel, Ban Aaronovitch | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics To all good arcs an end must come, and the Cry Fox arc reaches its conclusion with this issue. It’s misdirected me a couple of times, which is a good way to keep us jaded readers on our toes, […]

Written by Andrew Cartmel, Ben Aaronovitch | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics Always a pleasure when a new issue of one of my favourite books drops. I read many comics every month, and some I read through a sense of completion rather than a sense of enjoyment, but can honestly say […]
