‘Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor #3.4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Nick Abadzis | Art by Giorgia Sposito, Arianna Florean | Published by Titan Comics Ah, The Tenth Doctor. Simultaneously one of my favourite incarnations of The Doctor, and one of my least favourite Dr Who books. A little harsh perhaps, as objectively it is always a pretty decent quality book, but stacked up […]

‘Anno Dracula 1895: Seven Days in Mayhem #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Kim Newman | Art by Paul McCaffrey | Published by Titan Comics The first issue of the Anno Dracula 1895 comic series, from the mind of Kim Newman, threw in enough ideas and concepts to fill a dozen issues of most other series. I say ‘new’, but the series grew out of Kim Newman’s […]

‘Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor #3.1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by George Mann | Art by Mariano Laclaustra | Published by Titan Comics This issue sees new beginnings, as Year Three publishing wise begins. Robbie Williams makes way for George Mann, and Rachel Stott for Mariano Laclaustra. A fair swap on the face of it, though I’ll miss Robbie Morrison’s scripts as they were […]

‘The Mummy #5′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Peter Milligan | Art by Ronilson Freire | Published by Hammer/Titan Comics So here we are, the dramatic wrap up of what has been a pretty good updating, or reimagining, of The Mummy mythos. Interestingly, like most other genres, The Mummy ultimately comes down to power. The people who have it, the people […]

‘Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor #3.4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Alex Paknadel | Art by Simon Fraser | Published by Titan Comics Alex Paknadel did a pretty decent job last issue, building on the pieces put in place by Rob Williams. Although the sub-plot of the renegade Silent The Scream is ongoing, as he pursues The Doctor, The Sapling and Alice, the focus […]

‘Doctor Who: Ghost Stories #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by George Mann | Art by Ian Rodriguez | Published by Titan Comics Before I get stuck into the review in earnest, cards on the table time. I didn’t enjoy the Christmas special that inspired this 4 part mini-series. The Return of Dr Mysterio appeared on our screens Christmas 2016, and seems to have […]

‘Hook Jaw #4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Si Spurrier | Art by Conor Boyle | Published by Titan Comics If there’s one thing this book confirms, it’s that the appetite for sharks in any medium is still there. People still love a little chomping action it seems. Si Spurrier has been pretty clever by making Hook Jaw, the nominal star […]

‘God Country #3′ Review

by Kevin Haldon

Written by Donny Cates | Art by Geoff Shaw, Jason Wordie, John J. Hill | Published by Image Comics I am a tad behind on comic reviews this month due to our excursion to Wales for SFW8 (for more on that check out podcast episode 70, coming to Nerdly tomorrow). However I am back and […]

‘Dark Souls: Tales of Ember #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by George Mann, Tauriq Moosa, Michael Walsh | Art by Daniele Serra, Damien Worm, Michael Walsh, Dylan Burnett | Published by Titan Comics As big a fan of Titan Comics as I am, and I love 95% of their output, I have struggled a little with the Dark Souls books they have put out. […]

‘Doctor Who: The Ninth Doctor #11′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Cavan Scott | Art by Cris Bolson | Published by Titan Comics Is the Ninth Doctor just tricky to write? You would think that the relative lack of history for this incarnation would be a good thing, allowing the writer a little bit more freedom with their scripts than you would get for […]

‘Peepland #5′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Christa Faust, Gary Phillips | Art by Andrea Camerini | Published by Titan Comics I always feel as though I need a shower after reading Peepland. This is not the nostalgic 1980′s of a John Hughes movie, this is a dark, seedy underbelly peopled by bad people doing very bad things, and good […]

‘Penny Dreadful: The Awaking #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Chris King | Art by Jesus Hervas | Published by Titan Comics Penny Dreadful was one of my favourite shows of the last few years. I’m certainly not alone in that it quickly grew into something of a cult classic. Often violent and bloody, but very stylish and superbly written and acted. It’s […]

‘Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor #2.15′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Robbie Morrison | Art by Rachel Stott | Published by Titan Comics Robbie Morrison continued his winning streak with last issue, the first of this new arc. Although for a second it looked as though Morrison would be treating us to the adventures of the Time Surgeon and companion Kara, fighting the dastardly […]

‘Anno Dracula 1895: Seven Days in Mayhem #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Kim Newman | Art by Paul McCaffrey | Published by Titan Comics The horror comics renaissance of recent times seemingly continues with the arrival of Anno Dracula by Kim Newman. Kim Newman should need no introduction to horror fans, being a critically acclaimed writer and critic, and the fact he is not just […]

‘Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor #3.3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Nick Abadzis | Art by Giorgia Sposito | Published by Titan Comics Quite the frustrating book for me this one. I continually struggle to enjoy it, but also continually will it on to make me change my mind. To make it worse, I can’t quite put my finger on what exactly doesn’t quite […]

‘The Mummy #4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Peter Milligan | Art by Ronilson Freire | Published by Titan/Hammer Comics Last issue saw radical moves for pretty much all the pieces on the chessboard that is The Mummy. Prior to this we had had a lot of scene setting, of establishing character and their role in the story, and a definite […]

‘Rivers of London: Black Mould #5′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics The final issue of a story arc is always a mixed blessing. On the one hand, you want a resolution, you want to see how it all finishes and if it lives up to what has gone before. On […]

‘Assassin’s Creed: Uprising #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Alex Paknadel, Dan Watters | Art by Jose Holder | Published by Titan Comics The first issue of this new series last month gave me very mixed feelings if truth be told. I like Assassin’s Creed as a brand, as a concept, and I like the fact it allows you to branch out […]

‘Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor #3.3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Alex Paknadel | Art by Simon Fraser | Published by Titan Comics Colour me surprised to pick up this issue and find writer Rob Williams name missing, replaced by that of Alex Paknadel, a name I am mainly familiar with from the Arcadia title published by Boom! A quick check, and it seems […]

‘Masked #4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Serge Lehman | Art by Stephane Crety, Julien Hugonnard-Bert | Published by Titan Comics It’s a bit difficult to make my mind up about this book. On the one hand, the setting of a futuristic Paris, Paritropolis, is pretty cool, as are the giant television screens on the sides of buildings and the […]
