‘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 […]

‘Future State: Superman of Metropolis #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Sean Lewis, Brandon Easton | Art by Various | Published by DC Comics By all accounts DC have a lot riding on their Future State line of books, which will see print in January and February of this year. DC have essentially replaced their normal DC Universe books with books set in the […]

‘House of El: Book One – The Shadow Threat’ Graphic Novel Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Claudia Gray | Art by Eric Zawadki | Published by DC Comics YA One thing DC has always enjoyed has been to reinvent and revisit some of its characters, and reinterpret them for various reasons. When comics began of course, the primary audience was young boys, so they tended to be pretty simplistic […]

‘Tales From the Dark Multiverse: Crisis on Infinite Earths #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Steve Orlando | Art by Mike Perkins | Published by DC Comics I’ve always had a love/ hate relationship with Crisis on Infinite Earths. Like it or not, it has cast a huge shadow over DC’s output ever since it was published back in the 1980’s. I’ve always appreciated its intent, to clean […]

‘DC’s Very Merry Multiverse #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Various | Art by Various | Published by DC Comics It’s that time of year when the Christmas/ Holiday/ Winter Solstice/Hanukkah/ Kwanzaa Specials come out. Not all different ones of course, but these days the books try and be inclusive and include all the above. DC have cleverly sidestepped the yearly outrage at […]

‘Tales from the Dark Multiverse: Flashpoint #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Bryan Hitch | Art by Bryan Hitch, Andrew Currie, Scott Hanna | Published by DC Comics DC really do know their audience. Every time I think I’ve had enough of these Dark Multiverse books, they stick out one that makes me act like someone propping up the bar at the local. ‘Go on, […]

‘Teen Titans: Beast Boy’ Graphic Novel Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Kami Garcia | Art by Gabriel Picolo | Format: Paperback, 208pp | Published by DC Comics YA I’m getting the distinct impression that Kami Garcia and Gabriel Picolo enjoy two things. One, working together. This is their second effort together, after last year’s Teen Titans: Raven Young Adult book, and they have a […]

‘Tales From the Dark Multiverse: Batman Hush #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Phillip Kennedy Johnson | Art by Dexter Soy | Published by DC Comics I’ve been dipping into these Dark Multiverse books and crossovers for a while now, and as you would expect they have been of mixed quality. Generally, though, they’ve hit more home runs than strikes. The positive thing is that as […]

‘Batgirl #50’ Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Cecil Castellucci | Art by Emanuela Lupacchino, Various | Published by DC Comics First off, full confession, I have not read a single issue of this book before this one. No particular reason, but there are only so many hours in the day, and this was not a book that really registered on […]

‘Batman: Three Jokers #3’ Review (DC Black Label)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Geoff Johns | Art by Jason Fabok | Published by DC Black Label This book has been outstanding on pretty much every level. Great covers, sensational art and a script that not only delivered what we hoped for, but also supplied the cherry and cream to go on top of that particular pie. […]

‘DC: The Doomed and The Damned #1’ Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Various | Art by Various | Published by DC Comics When it comes to over-sized special edition comics, DC seemingly can’t wait to whip up a steady stream of one after another. That’s not a complaint, mind you, just an observation. These 80 Page Giants must be good-sellers for DC, and although nearly […]

‘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 […]

‘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, […]

‘Batman: Three Jokers #2’ Review (DC Black Label)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Geoff Johns | Art by Jason Fabok | Published by DC Black Label How good was that first issue? Obviously a rhetorical question, because Book One was a stunning piece of work. The writing and art were just outrageously good. Can that high bar be sustained? I’m going with a hard ‘yes’. So, […]

He first took over the book four years ago, and has since then put together one of the outstanding run’s in Barry Allen’s history. He’s in some […]

‘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, […]

‘Batman: Three Jokers #1’ Review

Written by Geoff Johns | Art by Jason Fabok | Published by DC Black Label I think when everyone first heard of this upcoming book, they were both intrigued and confused. Three Jokers? Say what now? That’s to say nothing of the fact that the tease has been going on for 4 years or so, […]

‘Dark Nights: Death Metal Guidebook #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Various | Art by Various | Published by DC Comics I’m not entirely sure why, but DC have always been far better than Marvel with anthology books. Possibly because of their extended history, that they just have that much more material than Marvel had, and could make extra money by packaging old, sorry […]

Written by G. Willow Wilson | Art by Nick Robles | Published by DC Black Label Although at heart when I choose and read my comics I am a superhero guy, I do enjoy dipping into indie stuff and non-superhero stuff along the way. Variety is the spice of life after all. Although Superman, Spider-Man, […]
