‘X-Men Legends #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Roy Thomas | Art by Dave Wachter | Published by Marvel Comics Let’s be honest, these new stories that slot into old continuity have been very hit and miss. They get a lot of goodwill from the nostalgia crowd (guilty as charged) but don’t always do enough to really merit their existence. Although […]

‘Ian Fleming’s James Bond 007 #1’ Review (Dynamite)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Phillip Kennedy Johnson | Art by Marco Finnegan | Published by Dynamite Entertainment I must be on something of a subconscious James Bond kick at the moment. I’ve just finished re-watching the Daniel Craig Bond films, and then this book caught my eye. Dynamite’s had the rights to do James Bond for a […]

‘Dark Crisis #3’ Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Joshua Williamson | Art by Daniel Sampere, Daniel Henriques, Danny Miki | Published by DC Comics The best way to describe this book is the comic book equivalent of a summer popcorn action movie. Doesn’t lend itself to a whole lot of navel gazing analysis, but there are a lot of explosions, action […]

‘Superman: Space Age #1’ Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Mark Russell | Art by Mike Allred | Published by DC Comics A new Superman number one issue? Oh, go on then. One with a connection to the fabled Crisis on Infinite Earths? Definitely go on then. Mark Russell writing and Mike Allred drawing? You had me at Superman. This book genuinely intrigued […]

‘Sins of the Black Flamingo #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Andrew Wheeler | Art by Travis Moore | Published by Image Comics This was a purely random pick-up from me, but one with some logic attached. Firstly, it’s Image, and lately that has been quite the mark of quality. There have been some great books coming out from them of late, and Marvel […]

‘New Fantastic Four #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Peter David | Written by Alan Robinson | Published by Marvel Comics Everyone loves a supergroup, and that’s as true in comics as it is in any other field. Back in 1991, the biggest characters at Marvel were Gray Hulk, Wolverine (of course), Ghost Rider, and Spider-Man. Punisher too, but that version of […]

‘The Flash #783’ Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jeremy Adams | Art by Amancay Nahuelpan | Published by DC Comics If I had to review just The Flash and Nightwing books every month it wouldn’t bother me in the least. Both are great reads, both are consistently entertaining, and both manage both fan service and engaging storylines for new readers. The […]

‘Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jackson Lanzing, Collin Kelly | Art by Carmen Carnero | Published by Marvel Comics Been a while since I last checked in on a Captain America book, mainly because there’s so much other stuff going on comics-wise Cap’s become old news. No new Captain America movie/tv stuff (not including Sam Wilson of course) […]

‘Dark Crisis #1’ Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Joshua Williamson | Art by Daniel Sampere | Published by DC Comics Will there ever come a time when DC will retire the ‘Crisis’ label for whatever universe-shattering, er, crisis is just around the corner? I doubt it. I guess it’s the comic book equivalent of a movie franchise in some ways. Let’s […]

‘Blade Runner Origins #12’ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by K Perkins, Mellow Brown | Art by Fernando Dagnino | Published by Titan Comics So, here we are. The final issue in the book that promised to show us the origins of the Blade Runner unit. It’s been quite the ride getting here. At first, I wasn’t entirely sure how the story, set […]

‘Savage Avengers #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by David Pepose | Art by Carlos Magno | Published by Marvel Comics Some books you don’t need, you don’t even want, until someone thinks them up and you think ‘oh yes’. If that involves Conan the Barbarian front and centre on the cover then even better. We are, of course, talking about Savage […]

‘Eight Billion Genies #1’ Review (Image Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Charles Soule | Art by Ryan Browne | Published by Image Comics I was going to start this review by saying that I chose this book as I felt it was time for my indie fix, but then thought that was doing this book a disservice. It would be better to say I […]

Written by Celeste Bronfman | Art by Jose Maria Beroy, David Cabeza | Published by Titan Comics A couple of quick observations here before diving in.

‘The Amazing Spider-Man #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Zeb Wells | Art by John Romita Jr, Scott Hanna | Published by Marvel Comics They say if you live long enough you see everything come around full circle. Flairs, stonewashed jeans, Spider-Man first issues… I can’t even remember how many first issues of Spider-Man books I both have, and have read. Do […]

‘Justice League #75’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Joshua Williamson | Art by Rafa Sandoval, Jordi Taragona | Published by DC Comics From the cover alone I could tell that subtlety isn’t going to be a word associated with this book. The cover positively screams in your face. Death, destruction, anarchy, as a whole bunch of DC A-lister’s scream in pain. […]

‘Blade Runner Origins #11’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by K Perkins, Mellow Brown | Art by Fernando Dagnino | Published by Titan Comics This has proved to be a book where a little bit of patience is required. The writers have enough confidence in their abilities, and in the attention span of their readers, to sometimes spread plots and developments out what […]

Written by Jeremy Adams | Art by Fernando Pasarin, Matt Ryan | Published by DC Comics Time for my semi-regular check-in on the Scarlet Speedster, review-wise that is. I always try to keep an eye on the book, as it has often been the touchstone for the current quality of DC books. Batman material sells […]
