‘Blade Runner 2019 #11’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Mike Johnson | Art by Andres Guinaldo | Published by Titan Comics If one central theme has run through the first year of this book, it is trust. Who should you trust? Who can you trust? When you are dealing with Replicants, that’s no great surprise I guess. People Blade Runner Ash should […]

‘DC: The Doomed and The Damned #1’ Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Various | Art by Various | Published by DC Comics When it comes to over-sized special edition comics, DC seemingly can’t wait to whip up a steady stream of one after another. That’s not a complaint, mind you, just an observation. These 80 Page Giants must be good-sellers for DC, and although nearly […]

‘Rorschach #1’ Review (DC Black Label)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Tom King | Art by Jorge Fornes | Published by DC Black Label (DC Comics) Marmite. Only way to describe any book featuring Watchmen characters, or any ongoing series with Watchmen characters. Fans either go with it, or steadfastly refuse to read or acknowledge those books existence. I think nearly everyone by now […]

‘Champions #1’ Review (Marvel Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Eve Ewing | Art by Simone Di Meo | Published by Marvel Comics With so much going on in the comic book world it’s impossible to keep your eye on everything. Like most people I tend to follow my favourite creators and characters mostly, but I do like to dip my toe in […]

Wolverine Wednesday #37

by Ian Wells

Wolverine #4 Writer: Benjamin Percy | Artist: Viktor Bogdanovic | Colourist: Matthew Wilson | Letters: Cory Petit When I first read this issue I found it a pretty solid read. But when it came to doing the review and I was flipping through it, it raised a few questions and is a tad confusing. Basically […]

‘Doctor Who: Time Lord Victorious #2’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jody Houser | Art by Roberta Ingranata | Published by Titan Comics If you are even a casual Doctor Who fan, you will no doubt have been following the frankly huge Doctor Who ‘Time Lord Victorious’ crossover storyline. If you’ve come in late, it is essentially a series of stories that are on […]

‘Dark Nights: Death Metal – Multiverse’s End #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by James Tynion | Art by Juan Gedeon | Published by DC Comics This event overall has blown a little bit hot and cold for me. The central story is solid, with some nice ideas in there, but there also seems to have been a lot of filler and unnecessary sidetracking. This being so, […]

‘Casino Royale’ Graphic Novel Review

by ApolloXL5

In 2018, Dynamite Entertainment released the (long-awaited) graphic novel retelling of the classic Ian Fleming novel, Casino Royale. Fans of Bond will know all about the film adaptations of this iconic character but it’s the comic version that’s recently received an update. Diverging with the modern film releases, this graphic novel is set firmly in […]

‘Batman: Three Jokers #2’ Review (DC Black Label)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Geoff Johns | Art by Jason Fabok | Published by DC Black Label How good was that first issue? Obviously a rhetorical question, because Book One was a stunning piece of work. The writing and art were just outrageously good. Can that high bar be sustained? I’m going with a hard ‘yes’. So, […]

by Dean Fuller

Written by Joshua Williamson | Art by Howard Porter | Published by DC Comics So, after 100 issues, Joshua Williamson is hanging up his bright yellow Flash boots. He first took over the book four years ago, and has since then put together one of the outstanding run’s in Barry Allen’s history. He’s in some […]

‘Blade Runner 2019 #10’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Mike Johnson | Art by Andrea Guinaldo | Published by Titan Comics I notice a slight change in the credits this issue, the first change we’ve seen in the ten issues published, including this one. Not a big one, but Mike Johnson is now writing the book solo, with Michael Green stepping down […]

‘Marvels Snapshots: X-Men #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jay Edidin | Art by Tom Reilly | Published by Marvel Comics The hook of these fantastic Marvels Snapshot books has been the ordinary observing the extraordinary. That is, what is it like for the more average people in the Marvel Universe? What’s their story? It’s a nice idea, and one that writers […]

‘Iron Man #1’ Review (Marvel Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Christopher Cantwell | Art by Cafu | Published by Marvel Comics I write this on a Thursday, so that must mean it’s time for a new Iron Man issue 1. I jest of course, but it does seem as though Iron Man has had more reboots, reimagining’s, and restarts than most. Since his […]

‘Detective Comics #1027’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Various | Art by Various | Published by DC Comics I know every comic book publisher loves a ‘special’ issue, an ‘anniversary’ issue, or a ‘reached a big number’ issue, but at first glance a 144 page monster book for issue 1027 of Detective Comics seems a bit of a stretch. Longevity, sure, […]

‘Black Widow #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Kelly Thompson | Art by Elena Casagrande | Published by Marvel Comics For me, Black Widow has always been one of those characters that works best as a guest star, or a co-star in a book, rather than headlining her own. I’m not entirely sure why, as she’s now quite a strong well […]

Written by Tom Taylor | Art by Darick Robertson | Published by DC Black Label I’ve always had a soft spot for John Constantine. Don’t get me wrong, man’s a complete tosser. He usually only does the right thing for the wrong reasons, self preservation more often than not, and yet he appeals to the […]

Written by Geoff Johns | Art by Jason Fabok | Published by DC Black Label I think when everyone first heard of this upcoming book, they were both intrigued and confused. Three Jokers? Say what now? That’s to say nothing of the fact that the tease has been going on for 4 years or so, […]

‘Dark Nights: Death Metal Guidebook #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Various | Art by Various | Published by DC Comics I’m not entirely sure why, but DC have always been far better than Marvel with anthology books. Possibly because of their extended history, that they just have that much more material than Marvel had, and could make extra money by packaging old, sorry […]
