‘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 […]

‘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 […]

‘Doctor Who: The Thirteenth Doctor #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jody Houser | Art by Rachael Stott | Published by Titan Comics So following on from the Thirteenth Doctor #0 issue, which was really good and should be sought out if you missed it, and of course a handful of episodes of the TV show, we finally get the first issue of 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 […]

‘Robotech #13′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Simon Furman | Art by Hendry Prasetya | Published by Titan Comics Last issue was the best for a good few issues, with a lot happening to really drive on storylines that had started to slow to a glacial speed. Obviously writers plot out their story arcs, or ‘beats’, over multiple issues so […]

‘The Punisher #1 & #2′ Review (Marvel Comics)

by Phil Wheat

Written by Matt Rosenberg | Art by Szymon Kudranski | Cover(s) by Greg Smallwood You can take The Punisher out of the War Machine… Punisher no longer has the War Machine armor, but he retained his newly acquired taste for big game, and he’s hungry for more. However, the paths to such perilous pursuits are […]

‘Rivers of London: Water Weed #4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Andrew Cartmel | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics So here we are, the final issue of the ‘Water Weed’ arc, and although it has been enjoyable, it has also meandered a little here and there and has not quite offered up as much as it promised. I’ve certainly enjoyed […]

‘Mickey Spillane’s Mike Hammer #4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Max Allan Collins | Art by Marcelo Salaza, Marcio Freire | Published by Titan Comics This has been something of a romp, albeit a noir romp, and has been very enjoyable because of that. No high brow entertainment here, Collins has gone for crowd pleasing guns, fights, dames, and sex. Can’t really go […]

‘Doctor Who: The Thirteenth Doctor #0′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Richard Winnick | Art by Various | Published by Titan Comics So, apparently there is going to be a new Doctor. Anyone heard anything about this over the last few months? Thought so. The discussion about the imminent Thirteenth Doctor has been a tad more animated than normal, due to the rather radical […]

‘The Raid #2′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ollie Masters | Art by Budi Setiawan | Published by Titan Comics I enjoyed the last issue, without loving it. Considering the two films worth of material that this book can pull from, the first issue felt surprisingly lightweight. What it did best was to replicate the style and feel of the films. […]

‘Mickey Spillane’s Mike Hammer #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Max Allan Collins | Art by Marcelo Salaza, Marcio Freire | Published by Titan Comics Before jumping into the review proper, a quick observation about recap pages or ‘what’s come before’ text in the front of books. As readers, we both like and need them. I reviewed the first issue of Mike Hammer […]

‘Penny Dreadful #11′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Chris King | Art by Jesus Hervas | Published by Titan Comics I know they say good things are worth waiting for, but it’s been close to three months since the last issue of Penny Dreadful. Yikes. That’s enough to test even my memory, which is a shame as the book was racing […]

‘Assassin’s Creed Conspiracies #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Guillaume Dorison | Art by Jean-Baptiste Hostache | Published by Titan Comics Ok, so I’m willing to bet another Assassin’s Creed book is going to divide opinion in an obvious way. If you like Assassin’s Creed, the games, books, novels etc, like I do, any new Assassin’s Creed story is a good thing. If […]

‘Robotech #12′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Simon Furman | Art by Hendry Prasetya | Published by Titan Comics Although not always fully on board with some of Simon Furman’s plotting, and at times execution of story, the man does do a fine job of juggling multiple plots. The good thing about having plenty of plots on the go at […]

‘Rivers of London: Water Weed #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Andrew Cartmel | Art by Lee Sullivan | Published by Titan Comics Several story arcs in, and I finally bit the bullet and started to read the Rivers of London novels alongside the comics. Though, funnily enough, I actually like the comics more (at this stage of course, several more books to go […]

James Peaty returns to script, though The Eleventh Doctor has replaced the Tenth of last issue, and Pasquale Qualano steps in as the new artist. This […]

‘The Raid #1′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ollie Masters | Art by Budi Setiawan | Published by Titan Comics The words ‘cult hit’ are bandied around a lot these days, perhaps a bit too freely. Rather like the over use of the word ‘supermodel’, but don’t get me started on that… The Raid film, and subsequent pop culture love, actually […]

‘Doctor Who: The Seventh Doctor #3′ Review

‘The Prisoner: Original Art Edition’ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jack Kirby, Steve Englehart | Art by Jack Kirby, Gil Kane | Published by Titan Comics I’ll be honest here, and say this won’t really be a review. A review is when you approach something objectively, weigh up its pros and cons, and hopefully throw in some entertaining prose. This book, the fabled […]
