‘Robin & Batman #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jeff Lemire | Art by Dustin Nguyen | Published by DC Comics This book was such a natural idea, it’s a wonder it has never been pitched before. Or maybe it has, and the time wasn’t right. Former DC boss Dan Didio certainly wouldn’t have green lit this book, he hated Dick Grayson. […]

‘Newburn #1’ Review (Image Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Chip Zdarsky | Art by Jacob Phillips | Published by Image Comics I picked this up purely on the cover alone. Yes, I am one of those people. I am a sucker for a good cover. Not just those pin up type covers, you can keep most of them, but ones that genuinely […]

‘Blade Runner 2029 #9’ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Mike Johnson | Art by Andres Guinaldo | Published by Titan Comics Last issue was certainly all go wasn’t it? Yotun went all in on his messiah complex and unleashed a near unstoppable Replicant army on poor old Los Angeles. He took over the highly symbolic LAPD HQ, though his ultimate plan seemed […]

‘Batman: The Long Halloween Special – Nightmares #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jeph Loeb | Art by Tim Sale | Published by DC Comics So there I was a few days ago moaning at the lack of effort from Marvel, DC, and Image in putting out some decent quality stuff for Halloween. After all, Halloween and Christmas were the two big times of the year […]

‘Night of the Ghoul #1’ Review (Comixology Original)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Scott Snyder | Art by Francesco Francavilla | Published by Comixology Originals As we are in the run up to Halloween I was looking for a suitably creepy and eerie book to review to tie in with that. To be honest, most of the major publishers had very slim pickings indeed, which was […]

‘Blade Runner Origins #7’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by K Perkins, Mellow Brown | Art by Fernando Dagnino | Published by Titan Comics The best kind of heroes are those that don’t think of themselves as heroes, and in Cal Moreaux we certainly have that. We know that eventually Blade Runner units will come from the pioneering stuff Cal is doing now […]

‘Rivers of London: Monday Monday #4’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel | Art by Jose Maria Beroy | Published by Titan Comics This being the concluding chapter of the ‘Monday Monday’ arc, I think it’s fair to say I’ve found it quite an uneven one. I get what Aaronovitch and Cartmel have tried to do, by having a central storyline […]

‘Are You Afraid of Darkseid? #1’ Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Various | Art by Various | Published by DC Comics You can tell Halloween is around the corner when the spookily-themed one-shots appear from all the comic book companies. I’m betting nobody wants to leave that money on the table. Let’s be honest, we’re all suckers for this stuff. I’ve been picking up […]

‘Blade Runner 2029 #8’ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Mike Johnson | Art by Andres Guinaldo | Published by Titan Comics Yotun this, Yotun that, I guess you think this book is about you (with apologies to Carly Simon). Yotun certainly is centre stage in this arc, and why not? He’s either a messiah or a terrorist, depending on your point of […]

‘Darkhold Alpha #1’ Review (Marvel Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Steve Orlando | Art by Cian Tormey | Published by Marvel Comics Another big ‘nothing will ever be the same etc etc’ number one issue. Sigh. Whenever I see these I am simultaneously disappointed and intrigued. Disappointed in that so many of these have the feeling of déjà vu. There’s only so many […]

‘Action Comics #1035’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Phillip Kennedy Johnson | Art by Daniel Sampere | Published by DC Comics If someone ever said to me you can only read one character from DC going forward, everyone who knows me wouldn’t even need to hesitate before giving an answer. Clark Kent. I say Clark, as I love pre-Crisis Superboy almost […]

‘Whistle: A New Gotham City Hero’ Graphic Novel Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by E. Lockhart | Art by Manuel Preitano | Published by DC Comics (YA) I’ve written in previous reviews just how much I like these Young Adult books. DC haven’t exactly covered themselves in glory in a lot of ways in recent times (closing down Vertigo for one) but this division has been one […]

‘The Death of Doctor Strange #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jed Mackay | Art by Lee Garbett | Published by Marvel Comics Firstly, what a stunning cover. Reminds me of the Frank Brunner stuff from the 1970’s. If that’s what Kaare Andrews was shooting for, it’s a bullseye. If not, a damn good unintended tribute. So, it’s another Marvel event, albeit a mini-one […]

Wolverine #14-#15 Writer: Benjamin Percy | Artist: Adam Kubert | Colourist: Frank Martin | Letters: Cory Petit In these two issues we were promised the resumption in rivalry between Wolverine and Solem. Instead we get Wolverine facing off against a new character with some ties to Solem which all need to be explained before we […]

eBuying Comics: Week 64

by Ian Wells

In 1973 Marvel latched onto the Bruce Lee, Kung Fu craze and launched the character of Shang Chi into high octane kung fu action in the pages of their comics. Now it is my turn to latch onto the latest craze and talk all things Master of Kung Fu. Firstly I haven’t seen the movie […]

‘Fantastic Four #35 (Legacy #680)’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Dan Slott, Mark Waid | Art by John Romita Jr., Paul Renauld | Published by Titan Comics I think I’ve mentioned before that I’ve been woefully neglectful when it comes to reviewing Fantastic Four books. It’s odd, as I really like the characters a lot. I still think the John Byrne years are […]

‘Blade Runner Origins #6’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by K Perkins, Mellow Brown | Art by Fernando Dagnino | Published by Titan Comics Always a great start when you can boast a Butch Guice cover, and a very nice cover at that. Cal Moreaux looks every bit the classic action hero. Which is funny, because he really isn’t. What he is, as […]

‘Dark Ages #1’ Review (Marvel Comics)

Written by Tom Taylor | Art by Iban Coello | Published by Marvel Comics I almost didn’t pick this up, as all the advance blurbs I had seen seemed to be promoting yet another ‘event of the month’ type thing. There’s only so many times you can go back to the well when it comes […]

Yotun’s campaign of terror against mankind stepped up a gear as Freysa led a small group to infiltrate Yotun’s base to try and free Ash. Ash has been ‘resting’ in one of Yotun’s rejuvenation […]

Written by Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel | Art by Jose Maria Beroy | Published by Titan Comics So we’ve reached issue 3 of this particular story arc and it’s all been a little different to normal.
