WWII Dinosaurs in 'Chronos Commandos'

Chronos Commandos cover

Stuart Jennett wants us to imagine an alternate history of World War II, one where time travel would allow the Nazis to procure a few dinosaurs to turn the tide and win the war. His five-issue comic series has been collected into a new hardback graphic novel Chronos Commandos: Dawn Patrol available now from Titan Comics.

Jennett was a comic book artist in the early '90s who became a concept artist for video game companies. He's both the writer and the artist here and his striking images were created digitally instead of with paper and ink. There's a ton of gore: the dinosaurs freely dismember both Allied and Nazi troops and the machine gun-wielding lead scientist looks a lot like Albert Einstein.

The whole think reads like a tribute to low-budget war movies and even more low-budget sci-fi movies from the '50s and '60s, but the gore level is straight out of '70s-era drive-in horror movies. Check out an excerpt  in our slideshow below:
