‘Tekken #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Cavan Scott | Art by Andie Tong | Pubished by Titan Comics Tekken #1 ran the entire gauntlet of expectations and missed opportunities. There was a whole ton of nifty ideas floating around, but very little focus and very little flow to the story. A pretty complicated back story (good) gave way to […]

‘Flintstones #12′ Review

by Dan Clark

Written by Mark Russell | Art by Steve Pugh | Published by DC Comics It is safe to say that The Flintstones will go down as one of the biggest pleasant surprises in the history of comics.

by Dan Clark

Written by Tom King | Art by Clay Mann | Published by DC Comics Many have already heard of the big reveal that happens on the final page of this issue, and for those who have not been staying current with this Batman series, it may seem strange from afar.

‘Freeway Fighter #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Andi Ewington | Art by Simon Coleby | Published by Titan Comics A little style over substance last issue, or perhaps a book finding its feet and a writer finding his tone. Although the fighting fantasy books themselves are derivative of other genres, or ‘inspired by’ to be kinder, the format of multiple […]

‘Night Owl Society #3′ Review (IDW)

by Dan Clark

Written by James Venhaus | Art by Pius Bak | Published by IDW Oh what could have been? One of the most shocking elements of the final issue of this series is that is the final issue. The first two issues were great building to something really impressive. Then with this final issue a marathon is suddenly […]

‘Saga #43′ Review

by Dan Clark

Written by  Brian K. Vaughan | Art by Fiona Staples | Published by Image Comics Saga is easily the most decorated book currently going today and will probably go down as the greatest book of this current generation. Still, even with that I would argue it is can be under appreciated. It is a victim of […]

‘Reborn #6′ Review (Image Comics)

by Dan Clark

Written by Mark Millar | Art by Greg Capullo, Jonathan Glapion | Published by Image Comics Looking at the creative team and concept of Reborn it had the ability to be a great series but it never reached the height of its potential. While reading this series I can see the wheels spinning in Miller’s head with all […]

by Dan Clark

Grass Kings #3 Written by Matt Kindt | Art by Tyler Jenkins | Published by Boom Studios Matt Kindt and Tyler Jenks are building something special with Grass Kings.

‘Victor LaValle’s Destroyer #1′ Review (Boom Studios)

by Dan Clark

Written by Victor LaValle | Art by Dietrich Smith | Published by Boom! Studios Basing your comic off a classic literary character takes a good amount of gumption. You are taking a character everyone is well aware of and trying to put your own spin in it, but if your spin too far off you […]

‘Rivers of London: Detective Stories #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics It was three long months ago when I reviewed the last Rivers of London issue, the final part of the Black Mould story arc. That was fine stuff. In fact, aside from a couple of issues during the ‘Night […]

‘WWE #5′ Review (Boom Studios)

by Dan Clark

Written by Dennis Hopeless, Ross Thibodeaux | Art by Serg Acuna, Rob Guillory | Published by Boom Studios At first glance, the idea of a WWE comic seems pretty absurd. It is not super surprising it exists as we live in a world where any licensed property is bound to have some version of a comic, but […]

by Dan Clark

Generation X #2 Written by Christina Strain | Art by Amilcar Pinna | Published by Marvel Comics When looking at recent relaunch of all the X-Men titles there is no question what the weakest link is so far and that is Generation X. So far it is a series that is severely lacking its own […]

‘Secret Empire #3′ Review

by Dan Clark

Written by Nick Spencer | Art by Andrea Sorrentino, Rod Reis | Published by Marvel Comics When Secret Empire #0 debuted I was amazed by how much was packed into the first issue.

‘Hulk #6′ Review

by Dan Clark

Written by Mariko Tamaki | Art by Nico Leon | Published by Marvel Comics I give writer Mariko Tamaki a lot of credit because it could not have been easy to pitch a Hulk story that did not have Hulk into it until the sixth issue. I cannot think of another situation quite like this […]

‘Deadpool #31′ Review

by Dan Clark

Written by Gerry Duggan | Art by Matteo Lolli | Published by Marvel Comics Way back when Steve Rogers was killed at the end of Civil War (Spoiler!) Marvel used that moment to showcase just how important of a character he was to the universe. They took the time to show just how many characters […]

‘Cable #1′ Review

by Dan Clark

Written by James Robinson | Art by Carlos Pacheco | Published by Marvel Comics So when is an introduction not actually needed?
