‘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 […]

‘Blade Runner: Origins #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by K Perkins, Melloe Brown, Mike Johnson | Art by Fernando Dagnino | Published by Titan Comics You can of course never have enough of a good thing. 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 […]

‘Generations Forged #1’ Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Dan Jurgens, Andy Schmidt, Robert Venditti | Art by Various | Published by DC Comics A little while ago I reviewed Generations: Shattered, which was also by Dan Jurgens, Andy Schmidt, and Robert Venditti. It was a fun ride, with a very odd bunch of heroes assembled from throughout time by Kamandi to […]

Wolverine Wednesday #41

by Ian Wells

Wolverine #9 Writer: Benjamin Percy | Artist: Adam Kubert | Colourist: Frank Martin | Letters: Cory Petit I just had a big, stupid smile on my face as I read this from cover to cover! Outside of just being a fun read, this issue actaully moves the story in interesting ways from where we left […]

‘The Immortal Hulk: Flatline #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Declan Shalvey | Art by Declan Shalvey | Published by Marvel Comics It seems Immortal Hulk reviews by me are like buses, nothing for a while then two come along at the same time. As I said before, Immortal Hulk had been a book I had been meaning to pick up for a […]

‘Radiant Black #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

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 […]

‘DC: Love is a Battlefield #1’ Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Various | Art by Various | Published by DC Comics You know the drill by now. Whenever there is a holiday or celebration of some sort, DC whip up a fresh helping of their 80 Page Giants. They usually consist of ten or so stories, by a mix of top name creators and […]

‘Hellions #9’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Zeb Wells | Art by Stephen Segovia | Published by Marvel Comics My tour of books I-haven’t-been-picking-up-but-really-meant-to brings me to the issue I am currently holding in my (virtual) hands, Hellions #9. Being honest, there’s not been much about the more recent X-books that’s particularly appealed to me of late. I’ve been reading […]

‘The Immortal Hulk #43’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Al Ewing | Art by Joe Bennett, Jose/Brabo | Published by Marvel Comics Word of mouth on this book has been blistering hot at times, and I am annoyed that apart from the occasional peek at individual issues I haven’t found time to sit down and read through the run. The Alex Ross […]

‘Man-Bat #1’ Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Dave Wielgosz | Art by Sumit Kumar | Published by DC Comics I’ve always been a bit divided on the Man-Bat character. A great concept, and a character I personally do like, but one that has conceptual flaws. Firstly, he’s a bit of a ‘one-trick pony’. That is, Man-Bat stories always run the […]

‘Future State: Superman vs Imperious Lex #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Mark Russell | Art by Steve Pugh | Published by DC Comics I’ve been enjoying the Future State books from DC a lot more than I thought I would. I just thought it would be another case of what sounded good in an editorial meeting really underwhelming in practice. They’ve not all been […]

‘The Black Panther Party: A Graphic Novel History’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by David Walker | Art by Marcus Kwame Anderson | Published by Ten Speed Press When anyone talks about sequential art, comics, or graphic novels these days, the first thing that comes into everyone’s mind is, of course, superheroes. Since comic books as an industry established itself in the 1930’s, superheroes have been the […]

‘Avengers #41’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jason Aaron | Art by Javier Garron | Published by Marvel Comics It’s easy as a reviewer to just pick up and review books you know you will like. I’m as guilty as anyone. If I see a certain character guest starring, or a certain creator involved, I will probably pick up that […]

‘Red Sonja: The Superpowers #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Dan Abnett | Art by Jonathan Lau | Published by Dynamite Entertainment So in a month packed full of Future State titles from DC, and the King in Black stuff from Marvel, I’ve decided to go elsewhere for the first of my weekly reviews. Why? Well, as much as I do love Marvel […]

Written by Jody Houser | Art by Roberta Ingranata | Published by Titan Comics I’ve been really enjoying this kick off story arc, with Jody Houser once again having all sorts of fun going through the gears. As I wrote last time round, total fan service, but that’s never a bad thing. Give ’em what […]

Wolverine Wednesday #40

by Ian Wells

Wolverine #8 Writer: Benjamin Percy | Artists: Adam Kubert & Viktor Bogdanovic | Colourists: Antonio Fabela & Matthew Wilson | Letters: Cory Petit I actually really enjoyed this issue despite it not delivering on the cover image. As a sidenote, the cover must be the first time Adam Kubert has drawn Maverick since the 90’s […]

‘Blade Runner 2029 #2’ Review (Titans Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Mike Johnson | Art by Andres Guinaldo | Published by Titan Comics Last issue saw the book jump ahead a decade, allowing for a shakeup in the status quo of both Ash and the world she inhabits. This is deliberate, as this series I’m assuming was always intended to show how the 2019 […]

Written by T.W. Burgess | Art by Mike O’ Brien, Brian Coldrick, Brianne Neuman, David Romero Author T.W.

‘House of El: Book One – The Shadow Threat’ Graphic Novel Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Claudia Gray | Art by Eric Zawadki | Published by DC Comics YA One thing DC has always enjoyed has been to reinvent and revisit some of its characters, and reinterpret them for various reasons. When comics began of course, the primary audience was young boys, so they tended to be pretty simplistic […]
