‘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 […]

‘Morbius: The Living Vampire #1′ Review (Marvel Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Vita Ayala | Art by Marcelo Ferreira | Published by Marvel Comics Let’s be honest here, Michael Morbius has had several shots at solo stardom down the years and none have really taken.

‘The Amazing Mary Jane #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Leah Williams | Art by Carlos Gomez | Published by Marvel Comics Seems quite appropriate to review this, as my last review was for a comic starring Lois Lane. Just as she will forever be ‘Superman’s girlfriend’, Mary Jane Watson will forever be ‘Spider-Man’s girlfriend’. The key difference between the two I guess […]

‘Marvel Tales Featuring X-Men #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Various | Art by Various | Published by Marvel Comics I remember reading recently that DC Comics top brass were a little miffed that their more recent stuff is still being outsold by their older stuff.

‘Spider-Gwen: Ghost Spider #1-10′ Review

by Phil Wheat

I’m a huge fan of Spider-Gwen. At first drawn to the look of the character, which is easily one of the best designs to have come out of Marvel in years, it turned out she was, across numerous books, a well-written and well-formed character too. Like Peter Parker, Spider-Gwen was flawed, more human than super-human […]

‘Vader: Dark Visions #5′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Dennis Hallum | Art by Geraldo Borges | Published by Marvel Comics When the Star Wars licence was with Dark Horse Comics, I tended to dip in and out quite a lot. The books were good quality, with top creators, and editorial made a conscious effort to keep a tight continuity with not […]
