1958. Driving through the British countryside, unthinkingly misogynistic space scientist, Dr. Boy Brett, and his companion, Doris Night, pop into a quaint village pub for a cheese ploughman's...
But waiting for them outside is a most unwelcome visitor: Grurk, an indestructible, monosyllabic robot from outer space, on a mission to harvest the British Blitz spirit for energy!
Pursuing Grurk in their Morris Minor, will Boy and Doris be able to save the British from a life without stiff upper lippedness, or will Her Majesty's Kingdom be forever resigned to a life down in the mouth?

Witty, satirical and a rollicking good laugh, IT CAME! is a stunning piece of work, infusing the best (and worst!) bits of the 1950s B-movie with whimsical British charm.
Dan Boultwood is a long-time collaborator with award-winning writer, Tony Lee, having worked together on The Baker Street Irregulars, Prince of Baghdad for The DFC and the Eagle award-nominated Hope Falls.

Editorial Reviews

"This wonderfully written and beautifully rendered volume is a work of real innovation. Capturing the pseudoscientific, misogynistic, and pipe-chomping “intellectuals” portrayed in low-budget horror films, the dialog is rife with laughs and double entendre. This is a treat for all ages." - Library Journal - starred review"It Came was a treat." - Atomic Moo"Funny in such an affectionate, knowledgeable way. No one writes a deadlier parody of something than a true fan with a sense of humor about the stuff and creator Dan Boultwood doesn’t miss a step." -  CBR"Dan Boultwood has created a witty and magnificent comic that everyone should purchase immediately." - Fanboy Comics"Clever, ridiculous, and most of all, really damn entertaining." - Giant Freakin Robot"With each panel and each page flip, I had a smile on my face, so definitely pick this comic book up!" - Retrenders"Incorporating 1950s B-movie charm and a lot of satire." - Kirkus"If you have fond memories of late night Mystery Science Theatre 3000marathons, then IT CAME! will hit all the right beats for you" – Newsarama"Not only is IT CAME! funny and smart, I suspect it will still be funny on the re-read" – Den Of Geek"You must be ready to read IT CAME with tongue surgically grafted to cheek." – Ain't It CoolFlat-out funny 1950′s tomfoolery that any fan of science fiction should own. Dan Boultwood, who did everything, is amazing! Overall grade: A+ – Sci Fi PulseDan Boultwood, the creator/artist, manifests a lush animation-cel technique which brings about a real 1950s B-movie-style feel, with a firm tongue-in-cheek approach – Broken FrontierBoultwood's story is solid storytelling. The art speaks for itself and I can't say enough about the quality of the drawings inked by Boultwood. I can't wait to see what happens next in issue #2.– Its Comic Book DayTitan Comics has a new creator in town, in the form of artist extraordinaire, Dan Boultwood! – Geeky Girls Love SciFi
