‘Doctor Who: The Thirteenth Doctor – Year 2 #3’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jody Houser | Art by Roberta Ingranata | Published by Titan Comics The saying ‘hit the ground running’ is often overused, but I think it’s fair to say that Jody Houser’s first story arc of Year 2 for The Thirteenth Doctor has done just that. Having just discovered that this first arc, a […]

‘Death to the Army of Darkness #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ryan Parrott | Art by Jacob Edgar | Published by Dynamite Entertainment For a franchise that started way back in 1982, as a low budget indie film, The Evil Dead has sure got some staying power. Actually shot in 1979, it took a couple of years to get released, but then became a […]

‘Gwen Stacy #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Christos Gage | Art by Todd Nauck | Published by Marvel Comics I was always a Gwen Stacy guy. Sure, Mary Jane had all the great one liners and looked spectacular, but Gwen had the class and grace. Gwen also features heavily in one of the most notorious events in Spider-Man’s history (spoiler […]

‘Superman Heroes #1’ Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Brian Michael Bendis, Matt Fraction, Greg Rucka | Art by Various | Published by DC Comics When a book proudly proclaims on its cover ‘The future of the DC Universe begins here!’, it’s hard not to pick it up just to see if it’s true or not. Throw in the fact it’s an […]

‘Blade Runner 2019 #6’ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Michael Green, Mike Johnson | Art by Andres Guinaldo | Published by Titan Comics Second story arcs are always tricky, maintaining that initial enthusiasm and buzz, but the new story arc Green and Johnson started last issue was a doozy. They took all the things that everyone really enjoyed from the first 4 […]

‘DC’s Crimes of Passion: 80 Page Giant’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Various | Art by Various | Published by DC Comics When you have read as many comics down the years as me, literally in the tens of thousands, you’ve pretty much seen it all. Quirky indie books? Check. Blockbuster multi-title crossovers? Check. Inter-company books? Check. Monthly books published on time? Che….er, well I’ve […]

‘Doctor Who: The Thirteenth Doctor – Year 2 #2’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jody Houser | Art by Roberta Ingranata | Published by Titan Comics Last issue was a fantastic start to Year 2 of The Thirteenth Doctor. Partly because Jody Houser writes a blindingly good Thirteen, partly because David Tennant’s Tenth Doctor appeared and still steals every scene he is in, and partly because the […]

‘Rivers of London: The Fey & The Furious #4’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel | Art by Mariano Laclaustra | Published by Titan Comics The thing I like about Rivers of London is the unpredictability of the storylines. When a new arc begins, I read the first few pages and think I have a pretty clear idea where the story is going, and […]

‘Guardians of the Galaxy #1’ Review (Marvel Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Al Ewing | Art by Juann Cabal | Published by Marvel Comics How many times can you reboot a book I hear you cry. Well, this being Marvel/ Disney, quite a few times as it turns out. The days of tight continuity and ongoing books are pretty much gone now, and it seems […]

‘Jessica Jones: Blind Spot #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Kelly Thompson | Art by Mattia De Iulis | Published by Marvel Comics I’ve always loved Jessica Jones, ever since her first appearance back in 2001. (Nineteen years?! where did that go) Her original series, Alias, was created by Brian Michael Bendis and artist Michael Gaydos, with fab David Mack covers, and is […]

‘Robotech Remix #4’ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Brenden Fletcher | Art by Elmer Damaso | Published by Titan Comics Issue 4, which I guess means its end-of-the-first-story-arc time, this being the era of the four issue story, which coincidentally package up rather nicely into trade paperbacks. Completely unrelated of course. Sometimes of course this means stories are artificially scrunched into […]

‘Doctor Who: The Thirteenth Doctor – Year 2 #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jody Houser | Art by Roberta Ingranata | Published by Titan Comics So comic book Thirteenth Doctor returns for her second year in tandem with the return of the TV series for her second year. Has to be said that the TV series was a bit hit and miss, though the New Year […]

‘Rivers of London: The Fey & The Furious #3’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel | Art by Mariano Laclaustra | Published by Titan Comics When I think about it too deeply, the last two issues of this book have been pretty lightweight in many respects, yet I have enjoyed them immensely. Even when other story arcs in the past have been a bit […]

‘Star Wars: The Rise of Kylo Ren #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Charles Soule | Art by Will Sliney | Published by Marvel Comics As a small indie film has just come out, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, I thought it only polite to review a connected book, throw some much needed publicity their way. I know, I know, ha ha. Jokes aside, this […]

‘Blade Runner 2019 #5’ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Michael Green, Mike Johnson | Art by Andres Guinaldo | Published by Titan Comics Well this is a refreshingly quick return to everybody’s favourite dystopian near future. When the first arc ended a couple of months ago I figured it would be a while before we got to see Aahna Ashina, our second […]

‘Robotech Remix #3’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Brenden Fletcher | Art by Elmer Damaso | Published by Titan Comics Can’t believe issue 3 has rolled around already with this reboot. It’s been a really solid and enjoyable start to a new era, albeit one that incorporates what’s gone before. If you came in late, Dana Sterling is now trapped in […]

‘Rivers of London: The Fey & The Furious #2’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel | Art by Mariano Laclaustra | Published by Titan Comics Last issue was fun, wasn’t it. Not often you get a mash up of street racing and magic, but then that’s what Rivers of London specialises in. Not just those two subjects of course, but in making unlikely combinations […]

Written by Tim Seeley | Art by Meredith Laxton | Published by IDW Comics Once upon a time The Crow franchise was all conquering. There were comics, TV shows, films, books, models, the lot. That’s not to say The Crow hasn’t been around much, as comic book wise it has been almost a constant presence […]

Written by James Tynion IV | Art by Aaron Loprestri, Matt Ryan | Published by DC Comics I know they are , in many respects, just giving the fans what they want, but these Dark Multiverse alternate takes on DC history have been hugely entertaining. This sort of thing has of course been done before, […]

‘Marvel 2099: Alpha #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Nick Spencer | Art by Viktor Bogdanovic | Published by Marvel Comics I’ve written elsewhere that I had become in more recent years quite jaded by the big crossover event, or the ‘buy 36 books to get the whole picture’ event. Good storytelling was being jettisoned in favour of editorial control, and the […]
