by Chris Cummings

Written by Matz | Art by Jean-Marc Rochette | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Hardcover, 96pp Now, I’ve sadly yet to read the Snowpiercer comic books (though I intend to eventually) but I am a fan of the overlooked brilliant movie that came out back in 2013 that was directed by Bong Joon-ho and […]

‘Age of Resistance: Supreme Leader Snoke #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Tom Taylor | Art by Leonard Kirk, Cory Hamscher | Published by Marvel Comics Marvel, obviously directed by parent company Disney, are sure getting their money’s worth from Star Wars. Disney have an extensive movie and TV slate coming up (doesn’t The Mandalorian look fantastic), and seem to see Marvel’s books as another […]

‘Pumpkinheads’ Graphic Novel Review

by Chris Cummings

Written by Rainbow Rowell | Art by Faith Erin Hicks | Published by Macmillan | Format: Paperback, 224pp I am very familiar with Rainbow Rowell.

‘Batman Damned’ Graphic Novel Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Brian Azzarello | Art by Lee Bermejo | Published by DC Black Label | Format: Hardcover, 192pp DC Black Label, which still sounds to me like a perfectly fine Scotch, is an imprint of DC designed to showcase more mature takes on DC characters. To my mind Vertigo already did that back in […]

by Dean Fuller

Written by Mark Russell | Art by Scott Godlewski | Published by DC Comics Another One Shot in the continuing Year of the Villain DC Event comes our way, after last month’s rather excellent Sinestro issue.

‘Doctor Who: The Thirteenth Doctor #12′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jody Houser | Art by Rachael Stott | Published by Titan Comics With me this book has always been a strange one. Although a Doctor Who fan, I didn’t enjoy the most recent Dr Who TV series. I felt the writing was average, I didn’t really take to this incarnation of The Doctor, […]

‘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 […]

Wolverine Wednesday #28

by Ian Wells

Dead Man Logan #10 Writer: Ed Brisson | Artist: Mike Henderson |  Colourist: Nolan Woodard | Letters: Cory Petit After a couple of issues of scene setting for Logan’s return to The Wastelands we get an action heavy issue. This is a smart move by Brisson as it gets the metaphorical adrenaline pumping in reading […]

‘Alpha Flight: True North #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jim Zub, Jed McKay, Ed Brisson | Art by Max Dunbar, Scott Hepburn, Djibril Morissette-Phan | Published by Marvel Comics Fans of Alpha Flight have been pretty hard done by in recent years. Although the John Byrne written and drawn first 28 issues remain fan favourites to this day (the first 13 issues […]

‘Harley Quinn: Breaking Glass’ Graphic Novel Review (DC Ink)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Mariko Tamaki | Art by Steve Pugh | Published by DC Ink Most reviews tend to start with a positive, so I’ll buck the trend. I don’t really Like Harley Quinn. There, I said it. Although currently the darling of some fans and a patron saint of female cosplayers, I find the character […]

‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Chosen Ones #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Mairghread Scott | Art by Ornella Savarese | Published by Boom Studios To everyone of a certain age, Buffy the Vampire Slayer has a special place in their heart. Running from 1997 to 2003, for seven seasons Joss Whedon broke boundaries and genres, and if the show went off the rails a little […]

‘Hellboy and the B.P.R.D: Saturn Returns #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Mike Mignola, Scott Allie | Art by Christopher Mitten | Published by Dark Horse Comics I still can’t believe that Hellboy first appeared way back in 1993, a full 26 years ago. Being one of the more ahem, classic, fans I remember when the character first appeared (I still have that book by […]

‘Marvel Tales Featuring X-Men #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Various | Art by Various | Published by Marvel Comics I remember reading recently that DC Comics top brass were a little miffed that their more recent stuff is still being outsold by their older stuff. Like classic coke beating new coke, the people at the top always seem to be the last […]

by Dean Fuller

Written by Michael Green, Mike Johnson | Art by Andres Guinaldo | Published by Titan Comics Well issue 1 of Blade Runner 2019 sure lived up to expectations, did it not?

‘The Death-Defying Devil #1′ Review (Dynamite Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Gail Simone | Art by Walter Geovani | Published by Dynamite Entertainment Did you know that Gail Simone was writing Daredevil? Yep. Sort of.

‘Sinestro: Year of the Villain #1′ Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Mark Russell | Art by Yildray Cinar | Published by DC Comics If you love event comics, now is something of a Golden Age for you. Every second comic you pick up seems to be an event comic, tying in to that week’s big ‘it’s the end of everything’ story. It isn’t of […]

‘Doctor Who: The Thirteenth Doctor #11′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jody Houser | Art by Roberta Ingranata | Published by Titan Comics If there’s something comic fans like it’s consistency. Consistency in how the characters are portrayed, consistency in the tone of the book, consistency in the overall feel of the book, and most importantly consistency in the creative team. Luckily, this book […]

‘Spider-Gwen: Ghost Spider #1-10′ Review

by Phil Wheat

I’m a huge fan of Spider-Gwen. At first drawn to the look of the character, which is easily one of the best designs to have come out of Marvel in years, it turned out she was, across numerous books, a well-written and well-formed character too. Like Peter Parker, Spider-Gwen was flawed, more human than super-human […]

‘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 […]

‘KIllers #1′ Review (Valiant)

by Dean Fuller

Written by B. Clay Moore | Art by Fernando Dagnino | Published by Valiant Entertainment Judging by the title, cover, and first page, subtlety is not something this title is aspiring to. That’s not a bad thing, as these days it’s a crowded comic book shop shelf you need to stand out from. Truth be […]
