‘Wonder Woman: Warbringer’ Graphic Novel Review (DC Ink)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Louise Simonson | Art by Kit Seaton | Published by DC Comics/DC Ink I suppose it was inevitable that DC’s biggest female hero would get the Young Adult makeover at some point, and it’s slightly surprising it’s several books in. We’ve seen young versions of Black Canary, Catwoman, Mera, Raven, and Harley Quinn, […]

Written by Brian Michael Bendis | Art by Ivan Reis, Joe Prado | Published by DC Comics If you’ve read any of my previous reviews (you’ve read them all, obviously) or know me personally you may have picked up on the fact that I am a bit of a Superman fan. Ever since I started […]

‘Tales From the Dark Multiverse: Infinite Crisis #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by James Tynion IV | Art by Aaron Loprestri, Matt Ryan | Published by DC Comics I know they are , in many respects, just giving the fans what they want, but these Dark Multiverse alternate takes on DC history have been hugely entertaining. This sort of thing has of course been done before, […]

‘He-Man and the Masters of the Multiverse #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Tim Seeley | Art by Dan Fraga, Richard Friend | Published by DC Comics It was pretty much impossible for me not to pick up this book with a title like that, so well done whoever decided to name the book. Reeled me in straight away. The Masters of the Universe have actually […]

‘Batwoman/Supergirl: World’s Finest Giant #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Various | Art by Various | Published by DC Comics For some reason I seem to be reviewing a lot of comics with female leads at the moment. Lois Lane, Mary Jane, Black Canary, the female Doctor (from Doctor Who), and now one of my personal favourites, Supergirl, and Batwoman. Which is nice. […]

‘Superman: Year One’ Graphic Novel Review (DC Black Label)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Frank Miller | Art by John Romita Jr. | Published by DC Black Label | Format: Hardcover, 168pp My first thought on hearing about this book, when published as three oversized issues, was did we really need another Superman origin/ early years book? There’s been a few down the years, and for me […]

‘Tales From the Dark Multiverse: The Death of Superman #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jeff Loveness | Art by Brad Walker | Published by DC Comics Who doesn’t love a good ‘What if’ story? No one, that’s who. That is why Marvel and DC especially keep mining at that rich vein of story ideas. Call them Elseworlds, or the 2099 Universe, or What If, or Tales from […]

‘Doomsday Clock: Part 1′ Graphic Novel Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Geoff Johns | Art by Gary Frank | Published by DC Comics | Format: Hardback, 224pp I bought and read the original Watchmen series when it came out in 1986, and it is hard to convey now just how groundbreaking that was. I bought the 12 individual issues as they were published, and […]

‘The Joker: Year of the Villain #1′ Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by John Carpenter, Anthony Burch | Art by Philip Tan, Marc Deering, Danny Miki, Jonathan Glapion | Published by DC Comics It’s always nice when a small time villain like The Joker gets his own spotlight issue. Hidden away as he is by DC, it would be nice to see him get some exposure….said […]

‘The Batman’s Grave #1′ Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Warren Ellis | Art by Bryan Hitch, Kevin Nowlan | Published by DC Comics This was impossible to not pick up. Firstly, well, it’s Batman, currently going through something of a renaissance, with some good books being put out. I imagine with DC Comics now being fully operated and controlled by their corporate […]

‘Lex Luthor: Year of the Villain #1′ Review (DC Comics)

Written by Jason Latour | Art by Bryan Hitch, Andrew Currie | Published by DC Comics Speaking as a, ahem, more mature fanboy I have got quite jaded of late with all the crossovers, mega events, ‘end of everything you know’ type stuff. I have been pleasantly surprised then by the fact I have really […]

‘Batman: Nightwalker’ Graphic Novel Review (DC Ink)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Stuart Moore, Marie Lu | Art by Chris Wildgoose | Published by DC Ink | Format: Paperback, 208pp The title of this graphic novel may seem familiar to some, and it should. Batman: Nightwalker was actually written as a prose novel by Marie Lu, for the DC Icons series of books. The higher […]

‘Batman Damned’ Graphic Novel Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Brian Azzarello | Art by Lee Bermejo | Published by DC Black Label | Format: Hardcover, 192pp DC Black Label, which still sounds to me like a perfectly fine Scotch, is an imprint of DC designed to showcase more mature takes on DC characters. To my mind Vertigo already did that back in […]

‘Teen Titans: Raven’ Graphic Novel Review (DC Ink)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Kami Garcia | Art by Gabriel Picolo | Published by DC Ink I have already read and reviewed two of the DC Ink books, featuring Mera and Selina Kyle, and enjoyed both quite a lot. Though, as DC’s foray into the Young Adult book market, these were not aimed at me, I read […]

Who Should Write Batman?

by Dan Clark

Recently DC announced that Tom King would be leaving the main Batman title at the end of the year and continuing his story in the Batman & Catwoman book. No matter your thoughts on that news the biggest question now is who takes up the reigns as the new Batman writer? It is a big […]

Publishers to read now that Vertigo is ending

by Dan Clark

The announcement of DC shutting down the Vertigo imprint was certainly a sad day for comics, however, it has been inevitable for some time. DC did recently try to relaunch Vertigo with a slew of new titles to bring life back to the brand, but despite critical acclaim for many of those series, it was […]

‘Event Leviathan #1′ Review (DC Comics)

Written by Brian Michael Bendis | Art by Alex Maleev | Published by DC Comics I tend to find that Bendis’s name attached to a huge company-wide crossover can either be a brilliant thing or a terrible one. Bendis at the top of his game is a joy, he can write some cracking dialogue and […]
