Comic creator Dan Boultwood will be launching Issue #1 of Titan Comics It Came! at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Thursday 15th August.
Fans of cult film will love this hilarious B-movie romp, a knowing throwback to the heyday of low-budget SF cinema! In It Came!, Dan Boultwood has unearthed a lost classic from the forgotten Pinetree Studios.
An enormous alien robot lays waste to the English countryside, annihilating bunting, villages, and diagonally-sliced sandwiches alike! Only the pipe-chomping space scientist Dr. Boy Bret and his assistant Doris Night stand a chance of stopping it from marching all the way to London!
Dan Boultwood is a cartoonist and comics artist, working on titles like Danger Academy, Hope Falls and the Baker Street Irregulars. It Came! is also all his own writing and his very first British B movie pastiche.
