‘Marvel Studios: The First Ten Years’ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Can you believe it has been 10 years since the Marvel Cinematic Universe came to life with the release of the original Iron Man film back in 2008. I certainly can’t. I still remember trying to persuade my reluctant wife to come to see it, but at the time a boys own fantasy of some […]

‘The Raid #4′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Alex Paknadel | Art by Budi Setiawan | Published by Titan Comics Last issue was an absolute stormer, helped in part by Alex Paknadel taking over as scripter from Ollie Masters. Masters obviously plotted out the entire arc, so kudos for that, but the devil in the detail last issue came from Paknadel […]

Wolverine Wednesday #18

by Ian Wells

The Return Of Wolverine #2 Writer: Charles Soule | Artist: Declan Shalvey | Cover: Steve McNiven I have often criticised comics that ask more questions instead of giving answers as bad reads. However if there is a character that this story trope suits really well then it is Wolverine. It is especially effective in the […]

‘Doctor Who: The Thirteenth Doctor #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jody Houser | Art by Rachael Stott | Published by Titan Comics So following on from the Thirteenth Doctor #0 issue, which was really good and should be sought out if you missed it, and of course a handful of episodes of the TV show, we finally get the first issue of The […]

‘The Raid #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Alex Paknadel | Art by Budi Setiawan | Published by Titan Comics Last issue, in the common vernacular, it was all kicking off. Good guy, bad guy, didn’t matter, everyone was facing challenges all over the place. Special forces cop Rama, known undercover as Yuda, is still protecting Teja, the cop falsely imprisoned […]

‘Rivers of London: Action at a Distance #1′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Andrew Cartmel | Art by Brian Williamson | Published by Titan Comics The previous arc, ‘Water Weed’, was different in that it was the first written solely by Andrew Cartmel. No worry was necessary though, as it turned out pretty good, with I’m assuming creator/formerly co-writer Ben Aaronovitch serving as a sort of […]

‘Shatterstar #1′ Review (Marvel Comics)

by Phil Wheat

Written by Tim Seeley | Art by Gerardo Sandoval, Carlos Villa | Cover by Yasmine Putri | Published by Marvel Comics A gladiator, a warrior, a hero…the man called Shatterstar has been many things, but one thing he’s always been is deadly. He’s not a man you want to cross or you’ll learn that fact […]

‘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 […]

‘The Punisher #1 & #2′ Review (Marvel Comics)

by Phil Wheat

Written by Matt Rosenberg | Art by Szymon Kudranski | Cover(s) by Greg Smallwood You can take The Punisher out of the War Machine… Punisher no longer has the War Machine armor, but he retained his newly acquired taste for big game, and he’s hungry for more. However, the paths to such perilous pursuits are […]

Wolverine Wednesday #17

by Ian Wells

The Return of Wolverine #1 Writer: Charles Soule | Artist: Steve McNiven | Inks: Jay Leisten | Colourist: Laura Martin | Letters: Joe Sabino My initial response after reading this issue was that it was a very solid story. A decent enough return for a very big character. After re-reading it my overall feeling was […]

‘Rivers of London: Water Weed #4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Andrew Cartmel | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics So here we are, the final issue of the ‘Water Weed’ arc, and although it has been enjoyable, it has also meandered a little here and there and has not quite offered up as much as it promised. I’ve certainly enjoyed […]

‘Mickey Spillane’s Mike Hammer #4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Max Allan Collins | Art by Marcelo Salaza, Marcio Freire | Published by Titan Comics This has been something of a romp, albeit a noir romp, and has been very enjoyable because of that. No high brow entertainment here, Collins has gone for crowd pleasing guns, fights, dames, and sex. Can’t really go […]

‘Crucible of the Vampire’ Graphic Novel Review

by Phil Wheat

Graphic novel by Iain Ross-McNamee | Written by Iain Ross-McNamee, John Wolkskel, Darren Lake | Format: A4 Paperback, 120pp This is an odd review for me… You see, when I was asked, following my review of the film from its Berlinale screening back in February, if I’d like to review the graphic novel adaptation of […]

‘Doctor Who: The Thirteenth Doctor #0′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Richard Winnick | Art by Various | Published by Titan Comics So, apparently there is going to be a new Doctor. Anyone heard anything about this over the last few months? Thought so. The discussion about the imminent Thirteenth Doctor has been a tad more animated than normal, due to the rather radical […]

‘Assassin’s Creed Conspiracies #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Guillaume Dorison | Art by Patrick Pion | Published by Titan Comics At the beginning of last issues review I made the point that although many, like me, enjoy Assassin’s Creed and are happy to give anything that comes along a go, it can be incredibly confusing to readers just dipping their toes […]

‘Doctor Who: The Road to the Thirteenth Doctor #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by James Peaty | Art by Brian Williamson | Published by Titan Comics So all the teasing is nearly over, and it is nearly time to see the Thirteenth Doctor in all her glory. First though, we get to see The Twelfth Doctor strut his stuff, as we have already seen Ten and Eleven […]

‘The Raid #2′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ollie Masters | Art by Budi Setiawan | Published by Titan Comics I enjoyed the last issue, without loving it. Considering the two films worth of material that this book can pull from, the first issue felt surprisingly lightweight. What it did best was to replicate the style and feel of the films. […]

Written by Max Allan Collins | Art by Marcelo Salaza, Marcio Freire | Published by Titan Comics Before jumping into the review proper, a quick observation about recap pages or ‘what’s come before’ text in the front of books. As readers, we both like and need them. I reviewed the first issue of Mike Hammer […]

‘Penny Dreadful #11′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Chris King | Art by Jesus Hervas | Published by Titan Comics I know they say good things are worth waiting for, but it’s been close to three months since the last issue of Penny Dreadful. Yikes. That’s enough to test even my memory, which is a shame as the book was racing […]

‘Assassin’s Creed Conspiracies #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Guillaume Dorison | Art by Jean-Baptiste Hostache | Published by Titan Comics Ok, so I’m willing to bet another Assassin’s Creed book is going to divide opinion in an obvious way. If you like Assassin’s Creed, the games, books, novels etc, like I do, any new Assassin’s Creed story is a good thing. If […]
