‘Robotech Remix #4′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Brenden Fletcher | Art by Elmer Damaso | Published by Titan Comics Issue 4, which I guess means its end-of-the-first-story-arc time, this being the era of the four issue story, which coincidentally package up rather nicely into trade paperbacks. Completely unrelated of course. Sometimes of course this means stories are artificially scrunched into […]

‘Doctor Who: The Thirteenth Doctor – Year 2 #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jody Houser | Art by Roberta Ingranata | Published by Titan Comics So comic book Thirteenth Doctor returns for her second year in tandem with the return of the TV series for her second year. Has to be said that the TV series was a bit hit and miss, though the New Year […]

‘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 […]

‘Star Wars: The Rise of Kylo Ren #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Charles Soule | Art by Will Sliney | Published by Marvel Comics As a small indie film has just come out, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, I thought it only polite to review a connected book, throw some much needed publicity their way. I know, I know, ha ha. Jokes aside, this […]

‘Blade Runner 2019 #5′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Michael Green, Mike Johnson | Art by Andres Guinaldo | Published by Titan Comics Well this is a refreshingly quick return to everybody’s favourite dystopian near future. When the first arc ended a couple of months ago I figured it would be a while before we got to see Aahna Ashina, our second […]

‘Superman #18′ Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Brian Michael Bendis | Art by Ivan Reis, Joe Prado | Published by DC Comics If you’ve read any of my previous reviews (you’ve read them all, obviously) or know me personally you may have picked up on the fact that I am a bit of a Superman fan. Ever since I started […]

‘Robotech Remix #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Brenden Fletcher | Art by Elmer Damaso | Published by Titan Comics Can’t believe issue 3 has rolled around already with this reboot. It’s been a really solid and enjoyable start to a new era, albeit one that incorporates what’s gone before. If you came in late, Dana Sterling is now trapped in […]

‘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 […]

‘The Crow: Hark the Herald #1′ Review (IDW Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Tim Seeley | Art by Meredith Laxton | Published by IDW Comics Once upon a time The Crow franchise was all conquering. There were comics, TV shows, films, books, models, the lot. That’s not to say The Crow hasn’t been around much, as comic book wise it has been almost a constant presence […]

‘Tales From the Dark Multiverse: Infinite Crisis #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by James Tynion IV | Art by Aaron Loprestri, Matt Ryan | Published by DC Comics I know they are , in many respects, just giving the fans what they want, but these Dark Multiverse alternate takes on DC history have been hugely entertaining. This sort of thing has of course been done before, […]

‘Marvel 2099: Alpha #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Nick Spencer | Art by Viktor Bogdanovic | Published by Marvel Comics I’ve written elsewhere that I had become in more recent years quite jaded by the big crossover event, or the ‘buy 36 books to get the whole picture’ event. Good storytelling was being jettisoned in favour of editorial control, and the […]

‘He-Man and the Masters of the Multiverse #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Tim Seeley | Art by Dan Fraga, Richard Friend | Published by DC Comics It was pretty much impossible for me not to pick up this book with a title like that, so well done whoever decided to name the book. Reeled me in straight away. The Masters of the Universe have actually […]

‘Olympia #1′ Review (Image Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Curt Pires | Art by Alex Diotto | Published by Image Comics Every comic book at its heart has an element of wish fulfillment. Comics evolved as entertainment for kids, and the sidekick trope was created to give those kids someone to identify with alongside their favourite hero. If you were like me, […]

‘Batwoman/Supergirl: World’s Finest Giant #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Various | Art by Various | Published by DC Comics For some reason I seem to be reviewing a lot of comics with female leads at the moment. Lois Lane, Mary Jane, Black Canary, the female Doctor (from Doctor Who), and now one of my personal favourites, Supergirl, and Batwoman. Which is nice. […]

‘Morbius: The Living Vampire #1′ Review (Marvel Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Vita Ayala | Art by Marcelo Ferreira | Published by Marvel Comics Let’s be honest here, Michael Morbius has had several shots at solo stardom down the years and none have really taken. He’s a perfectly decent supporting character or guest star, but suffers from the same problems that all ‘fad’ characters do. […]

‘Rivers of London: The Fey & The Furious #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ben Aaronovitch, Anrew Cartmel | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics You can always tell a good book by how much you miss it when it’s not around. The last issue of Rivers of London was over a year ago, and pretty much every month I’ve kept my eyes on […]

‘The Amazing Mary Jane #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Leah Williams | Art by Carlos Gomez | Published by Marvel Comics Seems quite appropriate to review this, as my last review was for a comic starring Lois Lane. Just as she will forever be ‘Superman’s girlfriend’, Mary Jane Watson will forever be ‘Spider-Man’s girlfriend’. The key difference between the two I guess […]

‘Tales From the Dark Multiverse: The Death of Superman #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jeff Loveness | Art by Brad Walker | Published by DC Comics Who doesn’t love a good ‘What if’ story? No one, that’s who. That is why Marvel and DC especially keep mining at that rich vein of story ideas. Call them Elseworlds, or the 2099 Universe, or What If, or Tales from […]

‘Marvel Tales feat. Ghost Rider #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Various | Art by Various | Published by Marvel Comics I kind of felt honour bound to review this, with Halloween in our not too distant future. Can you think of many better characters than Ghost Rider at this time of year. I also have a more personal connection in that, every Halloween […]

Written by Richard Ewell | Art by Jason Wulf | Published by Nerdy Laser Richard Ewell and Jason Wulf worked together on this mini-comic, a project from the mind of Ewell who has been a long-time fan of 80s pop-culture and cartoons as well as professional wrestling. Basically, you take a dash of old-school World […]

‘Robotech Remix #1′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Brenden Fletcher | Art by Elmer Damaso | Published by Titan Comics If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. That was my first thought when I heard that Titan were replacing the excellent Robotech book with Robotech Remix. Since 2015, Brian Wood, Simon Furman, Marco Turini and Hendry Prasetya routinely turned in outstanding […]

‘The Joker: Year of the Villain #1′ Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by John Carpenter, Anthony Burch | Art by Philip Tan, Marc Deering, Danny Miki, Jonathan Glapion | Published by DC Comics It’s always nice when a small time villain like The Joker gets his own spotlight issue. Hidden away as he is by DC, it would be nice to see him get some exposure….said […]
