We’ve seen it all in Winter’s Spite, or at least so it seems. The Dark Souls universe has put forward both an atmospheric and maudlin tale in this latest series. It shouldn’t come as a shock when I say that it’s been my favourite series by Titan Comics thus far. So it’s hurting me to see it conclude in this fourth and final issue.

Assassin’s Creed: Awakening #3 – Comic Review
Ubisoft’s original story involving the adventures of Edward Kenway has reached its third outing in the manga adaptation mini-series, Assassin’s Creed: Awakening. It’s fair to say that so far I can only describe proceedings as very slow going and lacking in various areas. But I’m not one to give up on the Assassin’s Creed world; maybe hitting the halfway mark of the series can be the much needed turning point?

Dark Souls Winter’s Spite Issue #3 – Comic Review
Winter’s Spite issue 3 marks a distinct change in the storytelling of not only this series, but the Dark Souls comics in general. And boy is it good.

Assassin’s Creed: Uprising #3 – Comic Review
We’re halfway through the initial four part story arc of the Assassin’s Creed: Uprising series and there’s no doubt that it’s been a thoroughly enjoyable set of comics so far. Despite sharing out the panels between the Brotherhood and the Templars, the story has been solidly told from both sides of the proverbial coin. Will the third issue continue in this vein, and with this being the penultimate issue of the current tale, can it ramp up the pacing ready for an enthralling finale?

Assassin’s Creed: Uprising #2 – Comic Review
The opening issue of the Assassin’s Creed: Uprising comic series brought together the previous Templars and Assassins comic story arcs, to merge into a sort of all-star tale featuring their titular characters, as well as a few new ones thrown into the mix. Needless to say, it was a breath of fresh air. Now, the real test is whether the momentum carries over for AC: Uprising #2, or whether it’ll become monotonous.

Tekken Issue #1 – Comic Review
Tekken 7 is finally due to release on consoles, over two years since its arcade release, and has promised to tie-up the series’ Mishima Clan saga that has been running throughout the series over the past 23 years. As it has been over six years since the last canonical game (Tekken Tag Tournament is non-canon), Tekken: Blood Feud is a 4-issue comic arc that will bridge the gap between games 6 and 7.
In the first issue of the new Assassin’s Creed: Reflections comic book series, we started with Master Templar Juhani Otso Berg going into the Animus for help. He started a journey researching famous assassins from the past, to try and understand the working of the assassin’s Brotherhood from the inside, in order to defeat them. As he quotes “to truly know one’s enemy is to become him”.
We travelled to Italy last time and once more saw the great assassin Ezio. We witnessed a tale involving the Mona Lisa painting and Leonardo da Vinci. It was fun, well written and action packed. Can the next issue live up to the first?
It’s always nice to see an old friend after a long time. To catch up, chew the fat and find out what stories they have to share. Well in the new Assassin’s Creed: Reflections series of comics from Titan Comics you can do just that, with an old favourite, Mr Ezio Auditore from Assassin’s Creed fame ready to tell us more.

Assassin’s Creed: Uprising #1 – Comic Review
Titan Comics have been delving into the lore of the Assassin’s Creed world for well over a year now, gathering a few different series under their belts over this time. The Uprising comic series looks to take both the Templar and Brotherhood based comics, merging them into a fresh and exhilarating amalgamation, in order to reach the culmination of the long-standing Phoenix Project plot. Will they blend seamlessly, or go together like the proverbial chalk and cheese?

Dark Souls Winter’s Spite Issue #2 – Comic Review
It’s straight into the action with the latest Dark Souls comic, which is good because Winter’s Spite Issue one was, admittedly, rather slow. This new issue, however, is a much needed change of pace that works off the foundations laid by Issue one to tell a fast and violent chapter in Andred of Ithvale’s story.
