Titan unveil variant covers for ‘Freeway Fighter #1′

Spinning out of the legendary Fighting Fantasy series of gamebooks created by Ian Livingstone and Steve Jackson in 1982, the post-apocalyptic Freeway Fighter distinguished itself by deviating from the usual mix of orcs, goblins and cave-trolls.

‘Mycroft Holmes #5′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Raymond Obstfeld | Art by Joshua Cassara | Published by Titan Comics This being Issue 5 means this is the last issue, in these days of “5 issues make the perfect graphic novel collection size”. Sometimes that artificial restriction does impact on the story, as pacing goes noticeably awry when too […]

‘Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor #3.2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Rob Williams | Art by Leandro Casco, Wellington Diaz | Published by Titan Comics What a great start to year three last issue was. Rob Williams brought a real breath of fresh air to the book, and I especially enjoyed the little tongue in cheek pop at Brexit, delivered in typically Whovian style. […]

by Dean Fuller

Written by Matz, Walter Hill | Art by Jef | Published by Titan Comics So, just as with the films it is so clearly inspired by, we come to issue 5 and the closing act. Triggerman Roy Nash has been the classic anti-hero. He’s an average guy who just happens to be a hitman. Although […]

‘Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor #2.14′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Robbie Morrison | Art by Rachel Stott | Published by Titan Comics Robbie Morrison’s arrival has seen this book go from middle of the pack to one of the front runners.

‘Rivers of London: Black Mould #4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics Some people don’t like too much humour in their reading, be it science fiction, horror, etc. They seem to think it dilutes the effectiveness of the genre. I tend to think the opposite. Very few things in life, entertainment […]

by Kevin Haldon

‘Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor #3.1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Rob Williams | Art by I.N.J Culbard | Published by Titan Comics Year 3, in publishing terms, has come for The Eleventh Doctor. A series that I haven’t exactly disliked, but not one I feel has been great either. Lacking a little of that timey-wimey magic, which for this incarnation is criminal indeed. […]

‘Doctor Who: The Third Doctor #4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Paul Cornell | Art by Christopher Jones | Published by Titan Comics This series has been a rare case of when, occasionally, style over substance is not a problem. Although the storyline has been perfectly fine, what has made this book work so well is the affection for the characters and the era. […]

Written by Dennis Calero | Art by Dennis Calero | Published by Titan Comics Assassin’s Creed Templars #9 brings both some good news and some bad news it seems. The bad news is that this issue will be the final one of the series. That, for me, is a real shame as this has been […]

‘The Chimera Brigade #4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Serge Lehman, Fabrice Colin | Art by Gess | Published by Titan Comics The Chimera Brigade, so far, has been a little schizophrenic in that it has consistently been gorgeous to look at, but lacking anything of substance in terms of consistent story and plot when scrutinised too closely. There are plenty of […]
