‘Robin #1’ Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Joshua Williamson | Art by Gleb Melnikov | Published by DC Comics When it comes to the character of Robin, I’ve always been ready to be annoyed whenever a new kid takes over. When Dick Grayson became Nightwing so Jason Todd could become Robin, I was a bit irritated. When Jason died (though […]

‘Action Comics #1030’ Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Phillip Kennedy Johnson | Art by Daniel Sampere | Published by DC Comics Admittedly it doesn’t take much prompting for me to pick up a Superman book, but one look at the great cover on this book, and a heads up this was the start of a major new arc, and I was […]

‘Blade Runner: Origins #3’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by K Perkins, Mellow Brown | Art by Fernando Dagnino | Published by Titan Comics In just 2 issues this book has really made its mark. The idea of filling in gaps in continuity is always a great idea, and great fan service of course, but quite often it creates more mess than it […]

‘Spider-Man: Spider’s Shadow #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Chip Zdarsky | Art by Pasqual Ferry | Published By Marvel Comics This is a book that has launched at the perfect time. Why? Firstly, it’s essentially a ‘What If?’ story, just one extended over 4 issues. Nothing wrong with that if there’s enough story in there. Secondly, Marvel are fast catching up […]

‘Locke & Key / Sandman: Hell and Gone #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Joe Hill | Art by Gabriel Rodriguez | Published by IDW Publishing When it comes to genre fiction royalty, you’d be hard pressed to do better than Joe Hill and Neil Gaiman, or their most famous creations Sandman and Locke & Key. Joe Hill is, of course, the son of Stephen King, and […]

‘Geiger #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Geoff Johns | Art by Gary Frank | Published by Image Comics I think it’s fair to say that people think of Geoff Johns as a DC guy. His runs on books like Green Lantern and The Flash are legendary, and he is of course currently heavily involved in Warner’s (who own DC […]

‘Doctor Who: Missy #1’ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jody Houser | Art by Roberta Ingranata | Published by Titan Comics My first thought when I saw this title was ‘Why?’. Missy, the female regeneration of The Master, is of course a fan favourite character, thanks in no small part to the brilliant Michelle Gomez who played her. She was perfect nemesis/ […]

‘Legends of the Dark Knight #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written and Drawn by Darick Robertson | Published By DC Comics Ah, Legends of the Dark Knight. That’s a grand old name. I say that as someone who bought the first issue of the original Legends book back in 1989. The first issue printed with several different coloured covers, and muggins here bought the lot. […]

‘The Flash #768’ Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jeremy Adams | Art by Brandon Peterson, Marco Santucci, David Lafuente | Published by DC Comics It’s been a little while since I checked in on The Flash, I think the last one I read was the final issue of Joshua Williamson’s outstanding run. The funny thing about this book is that each […]

‘Blade Runner: Origins #2’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by K Perkins, Melloe Brown | Art by Fernando Dagnino | Published by Titan Comics I really enjoyed last issue, and our jump into the past. That’s the past both literally, as it’s set in 2009, and the past in Blade Runner mythology/ timeline. It is, of course though, very much the future, albeit […]

‘Alien #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Phillip Kennedy Johnson | Art by Salvador Larroca | Published by Marvel Comics For a franchise that leans heavily on its anti-corporate tone and history, there is a certain irony on Alien now being controlled by Disney. Disney of course bought 20th Century Fox, who own the Alien franchise, and it probably didn’t […]

‘Captain America Anniversary Tribute #1’ Review

Written by Joe Simon, Jack Kirby, Stan Lee | Art by Daniel Acuna, Mahmud A. Asrar, Mark Bagley, Joe Bennett, Natacha Bustos and more… DC of late have been putting out a lot of 80th Anniversary one off specials to celebrate some of their big name characters. They’ve been well received, and it seems Marvel […]

‘Superman: Red & Blue #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Various | Art by Various | Published by DC Comics I’m a pretty easy mark when it comes to Superman books. A quick check of my collection shows over 2000 books with Superman in them. Throw in Superboy and Supergirl and, well, I guess I’ve got a super-addiction. But I digress. As much […]

‘The Joker #1’ Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by James Tynion IV | Art by Guillem March | Published by DC Comics So, let’s talk about The Joker. I have mixed feelings about the character if I’m honest. As a Batman villain, no problem. When he used to show up occasionally it was a big deal, as you knew it would be […]

‘James Bond: Agent of Spectre #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Christos Gage | Art by Luca Casalanguida | Published by Dynamite Entertainment I’ve been reading James Bond comics nearly as long as I’ve been watching James Bond films (the books came later for me, if you are wondering). I bought, and still have, the Marvel Comics adaptation of For Your Eyes Only, released […]

‘Crime Syndicate #1’ Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Andy Schmidt | Art by Kieran McKeown, Dexter Vines | Published by DC Comics I’ve always loved the Crime Syndicate characters. They first appeared on the scene in Justice League of America #29 way back in 1964, created by Gardner Fox and Mike Sekowsky. They were from Earth-3, a sort of Mirror Universe […]

With Blade Runner, this is most definitely true. The ongoing Blade Runner 2019/ 2029 book has been superb, building a world that is pure living and […]

Written by Kyle Higgins | Art by Marcelo Costa | Published by Image Comics Never underestimate the power of a good cover. I know it’s a little shallow of me, but to this day I literally buy some comics purely for the covers. I’ve bought comics in the past where I don’t really like the […]
