‘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 […]

‘Dark Crisis #2’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Joshua Williamson | Art by Daniel Sampere | Published by DC Comics I enjoyed the first issue of this book but did say in my review of that one that it was very much the introduction issue, so story took second place to establishing all the pieces on the board. It was still […]

‘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 […]

‘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 […]

‘Action Comics Annual 2022’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Phillip Kennedy Johnson, Si Spurrier | Art by Dale Eaglesham, Ian Churchill | Published by DC Comics I had an argument not long ago with a friend of mine who tried to persuade me that there were simply no new stories about Superman left to tell. I’m a huge Superman fan of course, […]

‘Nightwing #92’ Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Tom Taylor | Art by Bruno Redondo | Published by DC Comics These days you can get your comics info in all manner of ways. Publisher previews, sneak peeks from creators themselves, industry exposes, and so on. I put the greatest trust in the good old-fashioned word of mouth. Most of the books […]

‘Flashpoint Beyond #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Geoff Johns, Jeremy Adams, Tim Sheridan | Art by Xermanico, Mikel Janin | Published by DC Comics Wait a cotton-picking minute. Flashpoint? Wasn’t that all just a well-received set of stories purely thought up to give a decent lead into the New 52? Sure, the Thomas Wayne Batman hung around, but that reality […]

‘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. […]

‘The Flash #781’ Review

by Dean Fuller

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 […]

‘Shadow War: Alpha #1’ Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Joshua Williamson | Art by Viktor Bogdanovic, Daniel Henriques | Published by DC Comics I think the days of ongoing monthly books are numbered, judging by just how many monthly books these days from Marvel and DC are one-shots, limited series, or big event books. That’s not necessarily a criticism, because a good […]

‘War For Earth-3 #1’ Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Robbie Thompson, Dennis Hopeless | Art by Steve Pugh, Dexter Soy, Brent Peeples | Published by DC Comics Pretty much anything related to alternate worlds, multiverses, hypertime, Elseworlds or crises is guaranteed to pique my interest when it comes to DC books. My favourite DC stories have more often than not revolved around […]

‘Batman / Catwoman Special’ (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Tom King | Art by John Paul Leon, Bernard Chang, Mitch Gerads | Published by DC Comics DC of late has been absolutely flooding your monthly release lists with Batman and Batman Family titles, and I’ve been actively avoiding them. I love Batman, but I also love variety, and I think if we […]

‘Rorschach’ Graphic Novel Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Tom King | Art by Jorge Fornes | Format: Hardcover, 304pp | 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 […]

‘Tis the Season to be Freezin’ #1′ Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Various | Art by Various | Published by DC Comics Ah, the seasonal DC 80 page giant, the source of must love and dislike down the years. As I’m sure everyone does, I love the fact DC puts out these Christmas/ Holidays/ Winter Specials, but I can’t escape the feeling that they used […]

‘Robin & Batman #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jeff Lemire | Art by Dustin Nguyen | Published by DC Comics This book was such a natural idea, it’s a wonder it has never been pitched before. Or maybe it has, and the time wasn’t right. Former DC boss Dan Didio certainly wouldn’t have green lit this book, he hated Dick Grayson. […]

by Dean Fuller

Written by Various | Art by Various | Published by DC Comics You can tell Halloween is around the corner when the spookily-themed one-shots appear from all the comic book companies.

Written by Phillip Kennedy Johnson | Art by Daniel Sampere | Published by DC Comics If someone ever said to me you can only read one character from DC going forward, everyone who knows me wouldn’t even need to hesitate before giving an answer.
