‘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 […]

Written by Mark Russell | Art by Scott Godlewski | Published by DC Comics Another One Shot in the continuing Year of the Villain DC Event comes our way, after last month’s rather excellent Sinestro issue.

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

by Dean Fuller

Written by Mark Russell | Art by Yildray Cinar | Published by DC Comics If you love event comics, now is something of a Golden Age for you. Every second comic you pick up seems to be an event comic, tying in to that week’s big ‘it’s the end of everything’ story. It isn’t of […]

‘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 […]

‘Batman Universe #1′ Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Brian Michael Bendis | Art by Nick Derington | Published by DC Comics One of my previous reviews was for the first issue of Superman: Up in the Sky, a limited series which is essentially collecting together all the new material from the Wal-Mart 100 page DC exclusive comics. It’s very good by […]

‘Superman: Up In The Sky #1′ Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Tom King | Art by Andy Kubert | Published by DC Comics Been a little while since I’ve checked in on Superman’s solo stuff, so this new issue seemed a good one to dip into. Well, sort of ‘new’, as these stories have appeared somewhere else but I doubt you’d have seen them. […]

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)

by Dean Fuller

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 […]

‘Green Lantern #8′ Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Grant Morrison | Art by Liam Sharp | Published by DC Comics It’s been a while since I checked in on Green Lantern. One of the mainstays of my younger comic reading days, the Green Lantern run by Len Wein and Dave Gibbons remains one of my favourite runs on a book ever. […]

‘Batman and the Outsiders #1′ Review

by Phil Wheat

Written by Brian Hill | Art by Dexter Soy | Published by DC Comics The Outsiders, at least in the 2003-2007 Judd Winick run (and to a lesser extent the Chuck Dixon penned Batman and the Outsiders run that immediately followed), is one of my favourite ever DC titles. It is also, at least in […]

‘Six Days’ Graphic Novel Review (DC/Vertigo)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Robert Venditti, Kevin Maurer | Art by Andrea Mutti | Colours by Lee Loughridge | Published by DC/Vertigo | Format: Hardback, 148pp I’d imagine the average comic book reader is like me, they read comic books as they enjoy the escapism and the larger than life heroics. Although there has always been a healthy indie […]

eBuying Comics: Week 16

by Ian Wells

It would seem there is only one place to start this week. Last week Detective Comics reached issue 1000! It is the second DC title to reach the significant landmark after Action Comics in 2017. We could argue all day about which character is more important/more popular but really we should be celebrating two icons […]

Written by Danielle Paige | Art by Stephen Byrne | Format: Paperback, 192pp | Published by DC Ink This is the second of the DC Ink books I have reviewed, the first being Under The Moon, a young Selina Kyle/ Catwoman story. I expect the approach to the characters in this to be as fresh […]

‘Mister Miracle: The Complete Series’ Graphic Novel Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Tom King | Art by Mitch Gerads | Format: 300pp, Paperback | Published by DC Comics I think it’s fair to say that Mister Miracle has always been, at the very best, a second tier character. The best thing he had going for him was that he was created by Jack Kirby himself, […]

‘Justice League Vol.1: The Totality’ Review (DC Comics)

Written by Scott Snyder | Art by Jim Cheung, Jorge Jimenez | Published by DC Comics This iteration of the Justice League was never really my Justice League.

‘Batman: White Knight’ Graphic Novel Review

by Dan Clark

Writing and Art by Sean Murphy | Published by DC Comics The world of comics has long been filled with different versions of Batman. He is basically the Madonna of comics, reinventing himself for each new generation: from Adam West’s campy portrayal, to Frank Millers’ Dark Knight, to Christopher Nolan’s Batman in the real world.
