‘Doctor Who: Empire of the Wolf #2’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jody Houser | Art by Roberta Ingranata | Published by Titan Comics Every time I see Jody Houser’s name on the cover of a Who book I’m a happy man. Always delivers. Never some generic action adventure that you could slot any old character into, but something that is designed purely for The […]

‘Devil’s Reign #1’ Review (Marvel Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Chip Zdarsky | Art by Marco Checchetto | Published by Marvel Comics Oh look, it’s another ‘event’ book. Soon monthly books will probably cease to exist, considering how many of these event books both Marvel and DC pump out these days. Not a criticism, as publishers will just follow what the consumer wants. […]

‘Blade Runner 2029 #10’ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Mike Johnson | Art by Andres Guinaldo | Published by Titan Comics I think the main thing I enjoy about both the Blade Runner books from Titan is that they resemble the films so much in how of the ‘feel’ they capture. Sure, they both do a good job of capturing the time […]

‘Batman: The Long Halloween Special – Nightmares #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jeph Loeb | Art by Tim Sale | Published by DC Comics So there I was a few days ago moaning at the lack of effort from Marvel, DC, and Image in putting out some decent quality stuff for Halloween. After all, Halloween and Christmas were the two big times of the year […]

‘Night of the Ghoul #1’ Review (Comixology Original)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Scott Snyder | Art by Francesco Francavilla | Published by Comixology Originals As we are in the run up to Halloween I was looking for a suitably creepy and eerie book to review to tie in with that. To be honest, most of the major publishers had very slim pickings indeed, which was […]

‘Rivers of London: Monday Monday #4’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel | Art by Jose Maria Beroy | Published by Titan Comics This being the concluding chapter of the ‘Monday Monday’ arc, I think it’s fair to say I’ve found it quite an uneven one. I get what Aaronovitch and Cartmel have tried to do, by having a central storyline […]

‘Are You Afraid of Darkseid? #1’ Review (DC Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Various | Art by Various | Published by DC Comics You can tell Halloween is around the corner when the spookily-themed one-shots appear from all the comic book companies. I’m betting nobody wants to leave that money on the table. Let’s be honest, we’re all suckers for this stuff. I’ve been picking up […]

‘Blade Runner 2029 #8’ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Mike Johnson | Art by Andres Guinaldo | Published by Titan Comics Yotun this, Yotun that, I guess you think this book is about you (with apologies to Carly Simon). Yotun certainly is centre stage in this arc, and why not? He’s either a messiah or a terrorist, depending on your point of […]

‘Darkhold Alpha #1’ Review (Marvel Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Steve Orlando | Art by Cian Tormey | Published by Marvel Comics Another big ‘nothing will ever be the same etc etc’ number one issue. Sigh. Whenever I see these I am simultaneously disappointed and intrigued. Disappointed in that so many of these have the feeling of déjà vu. There’s only so many […]

‘Action Comics #1035’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Phillip Kennedy Johnson | Art by Daniel Sampere | Published by DC Comics If someone ever said to me you can only read one character from DC going forward, everyone who knows me wouldn’t even need to hesitate before giving an answer. Clark Kent. I say Clark, as I love pre-Crisis Superboy almost […]

‘Aquaman 80th Anniversary 100-Page Super Spectacular #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Various | Art by Various | Published by DC Comics You know the score by now with these 100 page anniversary specials. They are a celebration of some of the most iconic characters DC has on their roster, with a nice blend of multiple covers by great artists, around a dozen stories by […]

‘Dark Ages #1’ Review (Marvel Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Tom Taylor | Art by Iban Coello | Published by Marvel Comics I almost didn’t pick this up, as all the advance blurbs I had seen seemed to be promoting yet another ‘event of the month’ type thing. There’s only so many times you can go back to the well when it comes […]

‘Blade Runner 2029 #7’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Mike Johnson | Art by Andres Guinaldo | Published by Titan Comics Things moved along a lot last issue. Yotun’s campaign of terror against mankind stepped up a gear as Freysa led a small group to infiltrate Yotun’s base to try and free Ash. Ash has been ‘resting’ in one of Yotun’s rejuvenation […]

‘Rivers of London: Monday Monday #2’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel | Art by Jose Maria Beroy | Published by Titan Comics As last issue showed, this arc was looking to be a little bit different, at least as first, by having Peter firmly in the background and having a minor character or two take centre stage. It worked very […]

Written by Brian Azarello | Art by Alex Maleev | Published by DC Black Label Please don’t be a cheap cash-in, please don’t be a cheap cash in. These were my first thoughts when I saw this book announced. Suicide Squad books and merch aplenty I expected, with the critics loving the James Gunn movie, […]

Written by Jed Mackay | Art by Alessandro Cappuccio | Published by Marvel Comics Moon Knight is one of those characters that you always feel should be bigger than he is.
