‘The Flash #783’ Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jeremy Adams | Art by Amancay Nahuelpan | Published by DC Comics If I had to review just The Flash and Nightwing books every month it wouldn’t bother me in the least. Both are great reads, both are consistently entertaining, and both manage both fan service and engaging storylines for new readers. The […]

‘Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jackson Lanzing, Collin Kelly | Art by Carmen Carnero | Published by Marvel Comics Been a while since I last checked in on a Captain America book, mainly because there’s so much other stuff going on comics-wise Cap’s become old news. No new Captain America movie/tv stuff (not including Sam Wilson of course) […]

‘Dark Crisis #1’ Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Joshua Williamson | Art by Daniel Sampere | Published by DC Comics Will there ever come a time when DC will retire the ‘Crisis’ label for whatever universe-shattering, er, crisis is just around the corner? I doubt it. I guess it’s the comic book equivalent of a movie franchise in some ways. Let’s […]

‘Action Comics Annual 2022’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Phillip Kennedy Johnson, Si Spurrier | Art by Dale Eaglesham, Ian Churchill | Published by DC Comics I had an argument not long ago with a friend of mine who tried to persuade me that there were simply no new stories about Superman left to tell. I’m a huge Superman fan of course, […]

‘Blade Runner Origins #12’ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by K Perkins, Mellow Brown | Art by Fernando Dagnino | Published by Titan Comics So, here we are. The final issue in the book that promised to show us the origins of the Blade Runner unit. It’s been quite the ride getting here. At first, I wasn’t entirely sure how the story, set […]

‘Nightwing #92’ Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Tom Taylor | Art by Bruno Redondo | Published by DC Comics These days you can get your comics info in all manner of ways. Publisher previews, sneak peeks from creators themselves, industry exposes, and so on. I put the greatest trust in the good old-fashioned word of mouth. Most of the books […]

‘Savage Avengers #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by David Pepose | Art by Carlos Magno | Published by Marvel Comics Some books you don’t need, you don’t even want, until someone thinks them up and you think ‘oh yes’. If that involves Conan the Barbarian front and centre on the cover then even better. We are, of course, talking about Savage […]

‘Eight Billion Genies #1’ Review (Image Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Charles Soule | Art by Ryan Browne | Published by Image Comics I was going to start this review by saying that I chose this book as I felt it was time for my indie fix, but then thought that was doing this book a disservice. It would be better to say I […]

‘Moon Knight: Black, White and Blood #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jonathan Hickman, Murewa Ayodele, Marc Guggenheim | Art by Chris Bachalo, Dotun Akande, Jorge Fornes | Published by Marvel Comics Someone’s clearly flavour of the month right now. Moon Knight was always one of those second-tier characters with a small but loyal fan base. He’s proved a remarkably easy to use blank canvas […]

‘Rivers of London: Deadly Ever After #1’ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Celeste Bronfman | Art by Jose Maria Beroy, David Cabeza | Published by Titan Comics A couple of quick observations here before diving in. Firstly, it’s welcome back to Rivers of London, which is a book I have been reviewing since it first appeared in comic book form back in 2015 if memory […]

‘Flashpoint Beyond #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Geoff Johns, Jeremy Adams, Tim Sheridan | Art by Xermanico, Mikel Janin | Published by DC Comics Wait a cotton-picking minute. Flashpoint? Wasn’t that all just a well-received set of stories purely thought up to give a decent lead into the New 52? Sure, the Thomas Wayne Batman hung around, but that reality […]

Wolverine Wednesday #52

by Ian Wells

X Lives of Wolverine #5 Writer: Benjamin Percy | Artist: Joshua Cassara | Colourist: Frank Martin | Letters: Cory Petit The curtain comes down on X Lives with a very well crafted issue, that strikes a good balance between story and action.

‘The Amazing Spider-Man #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Zeb Wells | Art by John Romita Jr, Scott Hanna | Published by Marvel Comics They say if you live long enough you see everything come around full circle. Flairs, stonewashed jeans, Spider-Man first issues… I can’t even remember how many first issues of Spider-Man books I both have, and have read. Do […]

‘Justice League #75’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Joshua Williamson | Art by Rafa Sandoval, Jordi Taragona | Published by DC Comics From the cover alone I could tell that subtlety isn’t going to be a word associated with this book. The cover positively screams in your face. Death, destruction, anarchy, as a whole bunch of DC A-lister’s scream in pain. […]

‘Blade Runner Origins #11’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by K Perkins, Mellow Brown | Art by Fernando Dagnino | Published by Titan Comics This has proved to be a book where a little bit of patience is required. The writers have enough confidence in their abilities, and in the attention span of their readers, to sometimes spread plots and developments out what […]

Written by Jeremy Adams | Art by Fernando Pasarin, Matt Ryan | Published by DC Comics Time for my semi-regular check-in on the Scarlet Speedster, review-wise that is. I always try to keep an eye on the book, as it has often been the touchstone for the current quality of DC books. Batman material sells […]

‘The Rocketeer: The Great Race #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Stephen Mooney | Art by Stephen Mooney | Published by IDW Publishing I absolutely love The Rocketeer. Granted, I am a sucker for anything set in the 1930s and 1940s, be it comic book, film, or pop culture, but Dave Stevens created something beautiful with The Rocketeer. For those that came in late, […]

Written by Ron Marz, Andy Lanning | Art by Emilio Utrera | Published by Dynamite Entertainment Being a fan of 1940’s heroes and characters, I’ve loved the Project Superpowers books since they first appeared.

Wolverine Wednesday #51

by Ian Wells

There is a lot to get through this week, that should bring me up to date on the events of X Lives/Deaths. I had a delay on X Deaths #5 so I thought it would be best to review to two final issues in the next instalment. That way I can compare and contrast them. […]
