Chronos Commandos #3Chronos Commandos: Dawn Patrol #3

Trapped in the past, surrounded by starving velociraptors, and liberally daubed in blood, the Sarge and his squad are in their tightest spot yet!

But there’s no time to linger on their slim chance of escape – they’re sharing the Cretaceous with the Nazi time crew who’ve stolen an Allied Chronosphere – a piece of tech that could tilt the Time War in the Nazis’ favor! It’s up to the Sarge to take it back – or die trying!

Pulse-pounding painted pulpcore action, just like Mama always made!

It Came #2IT CAME! #2

Director Dan Boultwood continues his lost B-movie SF ‘classic’!

The alien robot known as GRURK has been temporarily waylaid by industrial quantities of bunting, but its inexorable march towards London cannot be stopped! In the village of Trumpington Abbey, space scientist Dr. Boy Brett and his lady-assistant Doris Night (a lady) welcome the arrival of the British Army – but do the soldiers herald a heightened level of competence… or a right royal Carry On? And what part does a field-full of mouldy turnips have to play in the enfolding cosmic drama?!

A blast for fans of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and classic low-budget science fiction, this gorgeous, affectionate pastiche will keep you guessing – and laughing – throughout!
