How about some good old-fashion comic book storytelling with a mix of sci-fi, comedy and fun? Check out Dan Boultwood’s It Came! Titan Comics collects the 4 issues of It Came! into one tidy hardbound trade.
On a road trip of sorts, our two stars, so-called scientist Doctor Boy Brett and his partner, the lovely Doris Night stop by a pub to get some drinks, but find themselves in a empty English town. Suddenly a mysterious gigantic robot starts attacking them and as they look for help they find a UFO. The aliens now look to attack London and the military’s weapons are of no use. Brett must find help and gathers together his scientist-mates to figure out a plan. They are totally stumped, but Doris stumbles upon a way to defeat the aliens. [SPOILER ALERT] It’s ironic humour – the secret weapon against the invading aliens is British tea! And this ultimately saves the city of London.
I enjoyed both Boultwood’s writing style and black & white illustrations. And there is fun humor, especially banter between Doctor Boy Brett and Doris Night. With each panel and each page flip, I had a smile on my face, so definitely pick this comic book up!
