by Dean Fuller

Written by Si Spurrier | Art by Conor Boyle | Published by Titan Comics Titan, like most of us, clearly think you can never have enough sharks in popular entertainment, and have dusted down another very niche property.

Beware what’s under the ocean… Hook Jaw is back!

by Phil Wheat

An intense modern iteration of the titular ocean predator, which debuted in legendary British comic (and forerunner to 2000AD) Action #1. Initially inspired by the success of the film, Jaws, Hook Jaw was one of many Action strips so violent it was banned from the shelves upon release – but now Hook Jaw is back […]

‘Numbercruncher #4′ Review

by Mark Allen

Written by Si Spurrier | Drawn by PJ Holden | Coloured by Jordie Bellaire | Published by Titan Comics Often when you read a comic with a skyscraper-high concept the conclusion doesn’t quite live up to the promise of the rest of the book, mainly because the creators were so excited about the ideas they’d chucked at the wall that they neglected […]

‘Numbercruncher #1′ Review

by Mark Allen

Written by Si Spurrier | Drawn by  PJ Holden | Colours by Jordie Bellaire | Published by Titan Books I’m a little biased going into this book because, as anyone with a passing familiarity with our Panel Discussion posts can tell you, I’ve kind of got a thing for Si Spurrier’s writing.

Panel Discussion – X-Men: Legacy

by Mark Allen

Hey folks – Mark again. Last week saw a fluke of scheduling for my pull list which meant I only got one comic from the store, that being X-Men: Legacy #9 from writer Si Spurrier and artist Tan Eng Huat.
