‘Doctor Who: The Thirteenth Doctor #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jody Houser | Art by Rachael Stott | Published by Titan Comics I’m a reasonably intelligent person, and yet it has taken me 3 issues to realise that this book is entirely written, drawn, coloured and edited by women. If that makes you happy or not, still quite a radical statement by a […]

Weapon x #27 Writers: Greg Pak & Fred Van Lente | Artists: Luca Pizzari, Alberto Alburquerque, Roberto Di Salvo & Ibraim Roberson | Colourist: Frank D’Armata | Letters: Chris Eliopoulos So after twenty seven issues Weapon X reaches is end.

‘Robotech #15′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Simon Furman | Art by Ivan Rodriguez, Pasquale Qualano | Published by Titan Comics Last issue was a corker, wasn’t it? A lot happened, as those delicate strands of plotting weaved over several issues started to wrap tighter and tighter around the main story, with previously separate or seemingly unrelated storylines starting to […]

‘Rivers of London: Action at a Distance #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Andrew Cartmel | Art by Brian Williamson | Published by Titan Comics So far this has been reading as a kind of old fashioned pulp story, albeit with a dash of magic thrown in. That’s a compliment, as it seeks to evoke the 1950′s atmosphere of its setting and does that really well. […]

‘Doctor Who: The Thirteenth Doctor #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jody Houser | Art by Rachael Stott | Published by Titan Comics This book started out really strong last issue, with a five star review from me, and that followed on from the 0 issue, which again was superb. It entertained, had great script and art, good characters, and promised much to come. […]

‘Penny Dreadful #12′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Chris King | Art by Jesus Hervas | Published by Titan Comics Another loooooong wait for an issue of this book, this issue being only the second one published in 6 months! I’m guessing this may be due to Chris King’s heavy workload, and possible involvement in the new Penny Dreadful show recently […]

Wolverine Wednesday #20

by Ian Wells

Dead Man Logan #1 Writer: Ed Brison | Artist: Mike Henderson | Colourist: Nolan Woodard | Letters: Cory Petit I know this is Wolverine Wednesday but Glob may be my new favourite character. I hope he is around for all twelve issues of this series. By having him involved he provides light relief to what […]

‘Justice League Vol.1: The Totality’ Review (DC Comics)

by Phil Wheat

Written by Scott Snyder | Art by Jim Cheung, Jorge Jimenez | Published by DC Comics This iteration of the Justice League was never really my Justice League. The big five team of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and The Flash (and the likes of Cyborg, Green Lantern etc.) were in fact the antithesis of […]

Wolverine Wednesday #19

It’s that time of the month again to go through all comics laced with more than a hint of adamantium. This month I will bring you up to speed on the previous two issues of Weapon X, X-23 #6 and then review the latest and LAST issue of Old Man Logan Weapon X #24-#25 Writers: […]

‘Elric Vol 1: The Ruby Throne – Deluxe Edition’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Julien Blondel | Based on the novel by Michael Moorcock | Art by Robin Recht, Didier Poli | Published by Titan Comics Elric. For me, one of the most frustrating characters in fantasy fiction. For as long as I can remember, I’ve wanted to like him. I’ve tried reading the books and the comics, […]

‘Rivers of London: Action at a Distance #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Andrew Cartmel | Art by Brian Williamson | Published by Titan Comics I loved the first issue of the new story arc that we saw last time round. Ticked quite a few boxes for me. We got some period adventure, which is always nice. We learnt something new, again, very nice. Some spotlight […]

by Phil Wheat

Welcome back to another installment of Panel Discussion – this time featuring reviews of a handful of books that I’ve recently added to my pull list, including The Punisher, West Coast Avengers and La Muerta. The Punisher #3 Matt Rosenberg’s fantastic run on Punisher continues with issue three, which picks up from the cliffhanger ending […]

‘Marvel Zombie #1′ Review

by Phil Wheat

Written by W. Maxwell Prince | Art by Stefano Raffaele, Rachel Rosenberg | Published by Marvel Comics Years ago I got hooked into the world of Marvel Zombies – the book which featured numerous Marvel superhero zombified by a virus, running rampant across the globe. I read pretty much everything that came out with the “zombies” moniker […]

‘Robotech #14′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Simon Furman | Art by Hendry Prasetya | Published by Titan Comics I think it’s safe to say we are starting to enter payoff territory with this book. While it has never had a problem cueing up nice situations, or hinting at exciting developments, it has not exactly been quick to resolve them […]

‘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 […]

‘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 […]
