‘Blade Runner: Origins #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by K Perkins, Melloe Brown, Mike Johnson | Art by Fernando Dagnino | Published by Titan Comics You can of course never have enough of a good thing. With Blade Runner, this is most definitely true. The ongoing Blade Runner 2019/ 2029 book has been superb, building a world that is pure living and […]

‘Doctor Who Comic #3’ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jody Houser | Art by Roberta Ingranata | Published by Titan Comics I’ve been really enjoying this kick off story arc, with Jody Houser once again having all sorts of fun going through the gears. As I wrote last time round, total fan service, but that’s never a bad thing. Give ’em what […]

‘Blade Runner 2029 #2’ Review (Titans Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Mike Johnson | Art by Andres Guinaldo | Published by Titan Comics Last issue saw the book jump ahead a decade, allowing for a shakeup in the status quo of both Ash and the world she inhabits. This is deliberate, as this series I’m assuming was always intended to show how the 2019 […]

‘Doctor Who Comic #2’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jody Houser | Art by Roberta Ingranata | Published by Titan Comics Last issue was fun, wasn’t it? Smacked totally of fan service, but I think we are all fine with that. Take the Thirteenth Doctor, TARDIS and Fam, sprinkle in a dash of The Tenth Doctor, and a cherry on top in […]

‘Blade Runner 2029 #1’ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Mike Johnson | Art by Andres Guinaldo | Published by Titan Comics The ‘jump ahead in time’ storytelling technique is an oldie but goodie. By taking your already established characters and stories and then moving them forward you open up storyline possibilities moving both forwards and backwards. What’s the world like now? What’s […]

‘Blade Runner 2019 #12’ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Mike Johnson | Art by Andres Guinaldo | Published by Titan Comics So, this is the wrap up of what has been essentially one over arching storyline, albeit one split between three story arcs. A beginning, middle, and end if you will. The best thing this first year has done has been to […]

‘Doctor Who Comic #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jody Houser | Art by Roberta Ingranata | Published by Titan Comics With all the Time Lord Victorious shenanigans going on in the Dr. Who world (do read it, it’s great stuff), it’s easy to forget the bread and butter on the Who schedule. Namely, the main book featuring the current Thirteenth Doctor. […]

‘Blade Runner 2019 #11’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Mike Johnson | Art by Andres Guinaldo | Published by Titan Comics If one central theme has run through the first year of this book, it is trust. Who should you trust? Who can you trust? When you are dealing with Replicants, that’s no great surprise I guess. People Blade Runner Ash should […]

‘Doctor Who: Time Lord Victorious #2’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jody Houser | Art by Roberta Ingranata | Published by Titan Comics If you are even a casual Doctor Who fan, you will no doubt have been following the frankly huge Doctor Who ‘Time Lord Victorious’ crossover storyline. If you’ve come in late, it is essentially a series of stories that are on […]

‘Blade Runner 2019 #10’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Mike Johnson | Art by Andrea Guinaldo | Published by Titan Comics I notice a slight change in the credits this issue, the first change we’ve seen in the ten issues published, including this one. Not a big one, but Mike Johnson is now writing the book solo, with Michael Green stepping down […]

‘Doctor Who: Time Lord Victorious #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jody Houser | Art by Roberta Ingranata | Published by Titan Comics Been missing my Doctor Who fix of late, with obvious recent disruptions to monthly comics. Jody Houser had been doing a great job on the book, for me doing even better than most of the TV show episodes last series. So […]

‘Blade Runner 2019 #9’ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Michael Green, Mike Johnson | Art by Andres Guinaldo | Published by Titan Comics Was last issue a happy ending? I think so. It took 8 issues and several years in-story, but Cleo finally got her happy ending, a new start with her ‘mother’ Cleo on Arcadia. Ash’s story was more of a […]

‘Blade Runner 2019 #8’ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Michael Green, Mike Johnson | Art by Andres Guinaldo | Published by Titan Comics Incredibly, the last issue of this book that came out was back in March. Wonder what caused the delay… As pleased as I am that the book is back up and running, it was definitely not a welcome break. […]

‘Doctor Who: The Thirteenth Doctor – Year 2 #4’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Jody Houser | Art by Roberta Ingranata | Published by Titan Comics Well a lot has certainly happened since I reviewed the last issue of this book back in February. You could say in many ways the Covid pandemic is like something straight out of a Doctor Who story, though sadly rather than […]

‘Life is Strange Vol.3: Strings’ Graphic Novel Review

by Xenia Grounds

Written by Emma Vieceli | Art by Claudia Leonardi, Andrea Izzo | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 112pp At the end of the last volume, it’s safe to say that I found things a little disappointing because it’s where I really saw the cliched fanfiction tropes and it came across as fan service […]

‘Blade Runner 2019 #7’ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Michael Green, Mike Johnson | Art by Andres Guinaldo | Published by Titan Comics This arc, as I mentioned last time round, took something of a left turn by taking place several years after the first story, and by transferring the action off world. On top of that, the big bad Tyrell Corporation […]

‘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 […]

‘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 […]

‘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 […]

‘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 […]
