‘Spider-Man #1’ Review (Marvel Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Dan Slott | Art by Mark Bagley, John Dell | Published by Marvel Comics First things first. This isn’t a first issue. Yes, I know it says Issue 1 on the front, but normally that’s to tell new readers it’s a book you can safely jump aboard as a newbie. This isn’t one […]

‘Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths #5’ Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Joshua Williamson | Art by Daniel Sampere | Published by DC Comics The Multiverse is, it seems, dying. DC seem to be ripping up all of the Dan Didio restructuring of the DC Multiverse and returning things to closer to how they were pre-New 52, pre- Final Crisis, Pre- every Crisis.

‘DC Horror Presents: Sgt. Rock vs. the Army of the Dead #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Bruce Campbell | Art by Eduardo Risso | Published by DC Comics This is one of those projects that surely started with just a tagline. Something like ‘what if we had Sgt Rock fight Nazi zombies, and have Bruce Campbell write it.’ That’s ‘take my money’ territory right there, and personally I couldn’t […]

‘Creepshow #1’ Review (Image Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Chris Burnham, Paul Dini, Stephen Langford | Art by Chris Burnham, John McCrea | Published by Image Comics Ah, Creepshow. People of a certain age, like me, have fond memories of the 1982 film Creepshow. How couldn’t you, it was a tongue-in-cheek horror film written by Stephen King, directed by George Romero, and […]

‘Batman vs. Robin #1’ Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Mark Waid | Art by Mahmud Asrar | Published by DC Comics I wish I wasn’t such a sucker for books like this but c’mon, who can’t resist picking up a book called this, with a cover like this, and featuring the blurb ‘father vs son for the fate of the DCU’. That […]

‘Amazing Fantasy #1000’ Review (Marvel Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Various | Art by Various | Published by Marvel Comics This comic obviously doesn’t really exist. There is no Amazing Fantasy #1000, it exists only in the heads of the Marvel marketing department. Spider-Man’s 60th anniversary, however, does exist, and he’s one of a handful of characters that forced his way into mainstream […]

‘X-Men Legends #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Roy Thomas | Art by Dave Wachter | Published by Marvel Comics Let’s be honest, these new stories that slot into old continuity have been very hit and miss. They get a lot of goodwill from the nostalgia crowd (guilty as charged) but don’t always do enough to really merit their existence. Although […]

‘Dark Crisis #3’ Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Joshua Williamson | Art by Daniel Sampere, Daniel Henriques, Danny Miki | Published by DC Comics The best way to describe this book is the comic book equivalent of a summer popcorn action movie. Doesn’t lend itself to a whole lot of navel gazing analysis, but there are a lot of explosions, action […]
