‘Robotech #24′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Simon Furman | Art by Hendry Prasetya | Published by Titan Comics I’m still mightily impressed that, 24 issues in, this book not only continues to please long term and casual fan alike, but that it also can still throw surprises at us. Virtually every issue also brings a payoff for a long […]

‘Robotech #23′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Simon Furman | Art by Hendry Prasetya, Pasquale Qualano | Published by Titan Comics Last issue maintained the incredibly high standard that somehow this book has managed to continue over the last 2 years. With licensed properties it is so easy to just coast along on character and brand recognition, phone in some […]

‘Robotech #22′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Simon Furman | Art by Hendry Prasetya | Published by Titan Comics The first 20 issues or so of this book were pretty fantastic. A great mix of action, political intrigue, mystery, goodies turning bad and baddies turning good, and pretty much every genre covered at some point. Even reality TV. But let’s […]

‘To The Death #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Simon Furman | Art by Geoff Senior | Published by FBF Productions Simon Furman and Geoff Senior are almost comic book royalty. Sure, they have extensive CV’s in areas such as scripting, screenwriting and advertising art, but they always come back to comic books. For love, I would wager, rather than for the […]

‘Robotech #20′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Simon Furman | Art by Marco Turini | Published by Titan Comics Although not always the quickest kid on the block, and obviously distracted by little things like Avengers: Endgame and Game of Thrones of late, even I had been wondering what the little countdown symbols were on the recent covers of Robotech.

‘Robotech #19′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Simon Furman | Art by Marco Turini | Published by Titan Comics Always happy when a new issue of Robotech drops, as it has been consistently one of the best titles out there. Furman always delivers what you would expect from the book, fun sci-fi, but also throws in some soap opera, political […]

‘Robotech #18′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Simon Furman | Art by Hendry Prasetya, Pasquale Qualano | Published by Titan Comics There’s something warm and cosy about this Robotech book at the moment. That’s a compliment, by the way. It’s reliable, it’s consistent, and it always delivers. You can count on it. Sure, there some flashier books out there, but […]

‘Robotech #17′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Simon Furman | Art by Hendry Prasetya, Pasquale Qualano | Published by Titan Comics When this book began, I did wonder if there was a place for this in the modern publishing world. Robotech has always been entertaining, be it in cartoon form or previous comic book series, but has had a touch […]

‘Robotech #16′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Simon Furman | Art by Hendry Prasetya | Published by Titan Comics Last issue kept up the great pace and action that has characterised the series in the last few issues, and saw artists Ivan Rodriguez and Pasquale Qualano step onto the book, the first time regular artist Hendry Prasetya has not been […]

‘Robotech #15′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Simon Furman | Art by Ivan Rodriguez, Pasquale Qualano | Published by Titan Comics Last issue was a corker, wasn’t it? A lot happened, as those delicate strands of plotting weaved over several issues started to wrap tighter and tighter around the main story, with previously separate or seemingly unrelated storylines starting to […]

‘Robotech #14′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Simon Furman | Art by Hendry Prasetya | Published by Titan Comics I think it’s safe to say we are starting to enter payoff territory with this book. While it has never had a problem cueing up nice situations, or hinting at exciting developments, it has not exactly been quick to resolve them […]

‘Robotech #13′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Simon Furman | Art by Hendry Prasetya | Published by Titan Comics Last issue was the best for a good few issues, with a lot happening to really drive on storylines that had started to slow to a glacial speed. Obviously writers plot out their story arcs, or ‘beats’, over multiple issues so […]

‘Robotech #12′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Simon Furman | Art by Hendry Prasetya | Published by Titan Comics Although not always fully on board with some of Simon Furman’s plotting, and at times execution of story, the man does do a fine job of juggling multiple plots. The good thing about having plenty of plots on the go at […]

‘Robotech #10′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Simon Furman | Art by Marco Turini | Published by Titan Comics Dare I say it, but this book feels a little like it’s treading water. That may be overstating it a little, but although I’m all for teasing out plotlines over several issues, I’m not so keen on big reveals being pushed […]

‘Robotech #9′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Simon Furman | Art by Marco Turini | Published by Titan Comics With Robotech #9, Simon Furman finally flies solo. Brian Wood’s four issue handover, where they shared billing as co-plotters, has finished and the book will stand or fall on Furman alone. So far, admittedly it may be a little too early […]

Back in 2016 Rebellion, the company behind 2000AD and a myriad of video games, acquired the old Fleetway and IPC libraries and with them a wealth of classic British heroes. Well now Rebellion have announced that they are launching the ‘Rebellion-verse’, a new interconnected world of British superheroes, beginning with The Vigilant, a special one-shot […]

‘Robotech #8′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Simon Furman | Art by Marco Turini | Published by Titan Comics Although Brian Wood and Simon Furman are still listed as co-plotters, each issue that comes seems to have Furman’s fingerprints on it more and more. For me, Brian Wood writes a purer story, focusing on the bigger picture, whereas Simon Furman […]

‘Robotech #7′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Simon Furman | Art by Marco Turini | Published by Titan Comics Although Brian Wood officially signed off with Issue 4, he has clearly road mapped out quite a bit of the first year of this book, as he continues to get a co-plotter credit with Simon Furman. Furman has been the writer […]
