Titan Comics Solicitations June 2013 – It Came!

I remember when Titan Comics solicitations weren't that impressive. A copy of CLiNT here, a Walking Dead Magazine there, maybe a Tank Girl or a Lenore if you were lucky.
But for April 2013? Check it…

IT CAME! #1 DmC Devil May Cry The Chronicles of Vergil (HC)


The store that orders the highest quantity of IT CAME! #1 from April PREVIEWS will win a FREE bespoke advert in IT CAME! #4 for their store, designed and illustrated in a 1950s style by creator Dan Boultwood!

(Rich adds… any shop that decides to plonk down 1000 copies will probably get this… and an ad for you designed by Dan Boutlwood is certainly worth that!)

Witness a very British invasion!
Fans of Mystery Science Theater 3000 will love this hilarious B-movie romp, a knowing throwback to the heyday of low-budget SF cinema – in comic book form!
In IT CAME!, 'director' 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 Brett and his assistant Doris Night (a lady) stand a chance of stopping it from marching all the way to London – but can they possibly escape the grasp of GRURK and get the might of the British Army on their side?!
Keep your upper lips stiff, your ties immaculately knotted, and your notions of gender equality dialled back sixty years – for the sake of the planet!

SHARKY is the Earthbound son of ODIN and the grandson of ZEUS – and he just hit puberty!

Sharky is 16 years old. All his life, he's been raised by his mom, with no idea of who his father was.

Now he's hit puberty, only to discover that the "no-good-S.O.B." who contributed to his genes is none other than ODIN – not to mention his mother is a child of ZEUS!

Whenever something sets off his hormones, he transforms into the demi-god SHARKY – complete with a body The Rock would kill to have – and the strength of a superman!

When two of his long lost 'relatives' visit Earth and decide to create havoc by raising the dead, Sharky has to pick sides, with the fate of the planet at stake. With no time for training, it's a case of working out Superhero 101 as he goes – and if he fails, his friends' lives are forfeit!

With guest appearances from indie comics favorites THE MASK, VAMPIRELLA, SAVAGE DRAGON, MILK & CHEESE, MR MONSTER and FLAMING CARROT!

Nothing worse'n a Mathematician in love. As he died, in 1969, a Mathematician glimpsed the equation that drives the universe. This allowed him to strike a deal with the Divine Calculator: to be reincarnated, with all his memories intact, for another chance with the woman he loves.
In exchange, when he dies for a second time, he'll go straight into the workforce of the Afterlife, setting free another operative – a surly chap in a bowler hat by the name of BASTARD ZANE.

But the Divine Calculator has a horrible sense of humor, and he's incarnated the Mathematician thirty years after his death, in a poverty pit on the other side of the planet. The Mathematician still has a plan to spin things in his favor… but Zane isn't taking any chances with his cosmic get-out clause.

After all, they don't call him BASTARD for nothing!
