‘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)

by Phil Wheat

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. The big five team of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and The Flash (and the likes of Cyborg, Green Lantern etc.) were in fact the antithesis of […]

‘Elric Vol 1: The Ruby Throne – Deluxe Edition’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Julien Blondel | Based on the novel by Michael Moorcock | Art by Robin Recht, Didier Poli | Published by Titan Comics Elric. For me, one of the most frustrating characters in fantasy fiction. For as long as I can remember, I’ve wanted to like him. I’ve tried reading the books and the comics, […]

Graphic novel by Iain Ross-McNamee | Written by Iain Ross-McNamee, John Wolkskel, Darren Lake | Format: A4 Paperback, 120pp This is an odd review for me… You see, when I was asked, following my review of the film from its Berlinale screening back in February, if I’d like to review the graphic novel adaptation of […]

‘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.

‘The Beautiful Death’ Graphic Novel Review

by Alain Elliott

Written by Mathieu Bablet | Art by Mathieu Bablet | Published by Titan Comics As far as comic books go, I cant say I’ve read many ‘end of the world-type’ books that didn’t involve zombies. But I have of course watched many films with different ideas, so I was looking forward to see what the […]

‘Dark Knights: Metal – Deluxe Edition’ Review

by Phil Wheat

Written by Scott Snyder | Art by Greg Capullo | Published by DC Comics | Format: Hardcover, 128pp Metal is one of those “event comics” that, even as a more casual reader of DC’s particular brand of comics, was hard to ignore. The bombastic nature of the marketing, the sheer aduklation poured upon the book […]

‘Supergirl: Being Super’ Graphic Novel Review

by Phil Wheat

Written by Mariko Tamaki | Art by Joelle Jones | Format: Paperback, 208pp | Published by DC Comics I’ll be honest as a comic reader I tend to stick to Marvel’s output. That’s not to say I’m not a DC fan, it’s more that my desire to read the companies output has waned over the […]

‘Action Comics: 80 Years of Superman – Deluxe Edition’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Various | Art by Various | Published by DC Comics To paraphrase John Lennon, before Action Comics there was nothing. Action Comics was the comic book industry equivalent of the Big Bang. Prior to Action Comics you had comic books, but these were usually collections of previously published newspaper strips, repackaged to encourage […]

Written by Mike Baron | Pencils by Mike Mignola | Inks: Rick Burchett | Colors: Ripley Thornhill | Published by Titan Comics I wouldn’t consider myself a fan of Michael Moorcock.

by Dean Fuller

Its core concept, of using the Animus to jump into any specific point of time, is essentially a free licence for creators to have fun. And they have, ever since the […]
