‘Generations Shattered #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Dan Jurgens, Andy Schmidt, Robert Venditti | Art by Various | Published by DC Comics Ever since Crisis on Infinite Earths back in the 1980’s, I’ve always been a sucker for those big DC events featuring dozens of heroes and villains. Legends, Zero Hour, Convergence, Countdown, Infinite Crisis, and many others have come […]

‘Jim Henson’s Labyrinth: Masquerade #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Lara Elena Donnelly | Art by Various | Published by Boom Studios Being honest, I had no idea that comics based on Jim Henson’s properties was a thing. Sure, I know about the various attempts at Muppet related stuff, but not much else. When this book showed up in my every-other-day scroll through […]

‘Crossover #1’ Review (Image Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Donny Cates | Art by Geoff Shaw | Published by Image Comics This book is like one of those film trailers you see over and over months before the film itself actually comes out. I’ve been hearing about Crossover for a while, and anticipation has been building steadily. Unlike most trailers, though, advance […]

‘Blade Runner 2019 #11’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Mike Johnson | Art by Andres Guinaldo | Published by Titan Comics If one central theme has run through the first year of this book, it is trust. Who should you trust? Who can you trust? When you are dealing with Replicants, that’s no great surprise I guess. People Blade Runner Ash should […]

‘Rorschach #1’ Review (DC Black Label)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Tom King | Art by Jorge Fornes | Published by DC Black Label (DC Comics) Marmite. Only way to describe any book featuring Watchmen characters, or any ongoing series with Watchmen characters. Fans either go with it, or steadfastly refuse to read or acknowledge those books existence. I think nearly everyone by now […]

‘Doctor Who: Time Lord Victorious #2’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jody Houser | Art by Roberta Ingranata | Published by Titan Comics If you are even a casual Doctor Who fan, you will no doubt have been following the frankly huge Doctor Who ‘Time Lord Victorious’ crossover storyline. If you’ve come in late, it is essentially a series of stories that are on […]

‘Dark Nights: Death Metal – Multiverse’s End #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by James Tynion | Art by Juan Gedeon | Published by DC Comics This event overall has blown a little bit hot and cold for me. The central story is solid, with some nice ideas in there, but there also seems to have been a lot of filler and unnecessary sidetracking. This being so, […]

‘Blade Runner 2019 #10’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Mike Johnson | Art by Andrea Guinaldo | Published by Titan Comics I notice a slight change in the credits this issue, the first change we’ve seen in the ten issues published, including this one. Not a big one, but Mike Johnson is now writing the book solo, with Michael Green stepping down […]

‘Marvels Snapshots: X-Men #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jay Edidin | Art by Tom Reilly | Published by Marvel Comics The hook of these fantastic Marvels Snapshot books has been the ordinary observing the extraordinary. That is, what is it like for the more average people in the Marvel Universe? What’s their story? It’s a nice idea, and one that writers […]

‘Iron Man #1’ Review (Marvel Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Christopher Cantwell | Art by Cafu | Published by Marvel Comics I write this on a Thursday, so that must mean it’s time for a new Iron Man issue 1. I jest of course, but it does seem as though Iron Man has had more reboots, reimagining’s, and restarts than most. Since his […]

‘Detective Comics #1027’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Various | Art by Various | Published by DC Comics I know every comic book publisher loves a ‘special’ issue, an ‘anniversary’ issue, or a ‘reached a big number’ issue, but at first glance a 144 page monster book for issue 1027 of Detective Comics seems a bit of a stretch. Longevity, sure, […]

‘Fantastic Four: Antithesis #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Mark Waid | Art by Neal Adams, Mark Farmer | Published by Marvel Comics Amazingly, I don’t believe I have yet reviewed an issue of Fantastic Four during my time reviewing for Nerdly. I have reviewed issues that feature the FF, or solo turns and guest appearances, but never them in their own […]

‘Blade Runner 2019 #9’ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Michael Green, Mike Johnson | Art by Andres Guinaldo | Published by Titan Comics Was last issue a happy ending? I think so. It took 8 issues and several years in-story, but Cleo finally got her happy ending, a new start with her ‘mother’ Cleo on Arcadia. Ash’s story was more of a […]

‘The Flash #759’ Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Joshua Williamson | Art by Rafa Sandoval, Jordi Tarragona | Published by DC Comics Slightly under the radar Joshua Williamson has been putting together a mighty fine run on The Flash. I don’t know what it is about The Flash as a book, but down the years it has had some great runs […]

‘Blade Runner 2019 #8’ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Michael Green, Mike Johnson | Art by Andres Guinaldo | Published by Titan Comics Incredibly, the last issue of this book that came out was back in March. Wonder what caused the delay… As pleased as I am that the book is back up and running, it was definitely not a welcome break. […]

‘Shazam: Lightning Strikes #1’ Review (DC Digital)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Dan Jurgens | Art by Travis Moore | Published by DC Digital Never really enjoyed the fact that the original Captain Marvel, the real Captain Marvel, can’t be called that due to Marvel’s use of the name for their characters. Don’t get me wrong, was (and am) a huge fan of Mar-Vell, Marvel’s […]

‘Dceased: Dead Planet #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Tom Taylor | Art by Trevor Hairsine | Published by DC Comics Yes, I know, another ‘event’ comic, but bear with me here. Firstly, DC of late have been doing these way better than Marvel have. Secondly, the DCeased books have actually been pretty good up to now. We had the original six […]

‘Marvels Snapshots: Captain America #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Mark Russell | Art by Ramon Perez | Published by Marvel Comics As these Snapshot books are supposed to be walks down Marvel’s memory lane, with a side helping of modern relevance, it was inevitable that some form of homage to Jack Kirby would take place. In terms of which character to use, […]

‘Devil’s Highway #1’ Review (AWA Studios)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Benjamin Percy | Art by Brent Schoonover | Published by AWA Studios Never underestimate the power of a good cover. I’m not just talking about sticking a poster shot up on the front, as Marvel and DC are likely to do these days, but an actual cover that gives you a brief taster […]

Written by Various | Art by Various | Published by DC Comics DC character 80th anniversaries are the gift that keep on giving for everyone. For fans like me, these Specials have been fantastic. For creators, a chance to do a stand-alone tale from a specific era, or for a creator with a long history […]

‘Lady Zorro #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Pat Shand | Art by Vincenzo Carratu | Published by American Mythology Productions With all the disruption to the comics market of late, it feels as though all I’ve read lately are Marvel and, even more so, DC. This, of course, is not a bad thing as I love their books, but I […]
