‘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 […]

‘Penny Dreadful #10′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Chris King | Art by Jesus Hervas | Published by Titan Comics I recall reading somewhere that Chris King said that he really loved these characters, which as the Executive Producer of the TV show you would expect him to say. He does, however have a funny way of showing it. The characters […]

‘Penny Dreadful #9′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Chris King | Art by Jesus Hervas | Published by Titan Comics Well this has been a while coming. I reviewed issue 8 back in early January, so clearly the use of sadism isn’t just restricted to certain characters within the story. Chris King and Jesus Hervas, although clearly doing an absolutely brilliant […]

‘Penny Dreadful #8′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Chris King | Art by Jesus Hervas | Published by Titan Comics Penny Dreadful has to be one of the toughest books currently out there to recap. Not only is every issue absolutely crammed to the brim with story, but Chris King weaves multiple threads over many issues, many of which began life […]

‘Penny Dreadful #7′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Chris King | Art by Jesus Hervas | Published by Titan Comics I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, you’ll be hard pressed to find a more faithful adaptation of a property from one medium to another. Apart from the fact Penny Dreadful works incredibly well in comic book form anyway, […]

‘Penny Dreadful #4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Chris King | Art by Jesus Hervas | Published by Titan Comics Well that went fast. We have reached the final issue of the first story arc somehow. If I have any criticism at all, and I have enjoyed this series far too much to do more than slightly nit-pick, it is that […]

‘Penny Dreadful #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Chris King | Art by Jesus Hervas | Published by Titan Comics Well last issue was something of a cracker I think you’d agree. The first issue of this new series, and essentially Season 4 of the TV show, lived up to my already high expectations and then some. Chris King managed to […]

‘Penny Dreadful #5′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Chris King | Art by Louie De Martinis | Published by Titan Comics Like most Penny Dreadful fans I was really disappointed when the show’s creator, John Logan, announced the third season would be the last. Again like most, I don’t buy into his statements that he only ever planned three seasons to […]

‘Penny Dreadful 2×02: Verbis Diablo’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

Penny Dreadful‘s redeeming qualities are its sense of shlocky fun and its partially incredible cast.  Its weaknesses are its lousy pacing, its uncertain characterization of several core cast members, and its pursuit of tasteless thrills disguised as, to quote creator John Logan, “pushing the boundaries.”  When the show finds the balance between spectacle and humanity […]

Book Review: ‘The Art and Making of Penny Dreadful’

by Paul Metcalf

Written by Sharon Gosling | Published by Titan Books | Format: Hardback, 176pp When a show like Penny Dreadful merges a historical setting with a fantastical dark world where anything is possible – to make this believable, but still add the level of the surreal that is required, there has to be a set vision and […]
