Cosmic Times Production  Code: CT-023

Rated: T - Appropriate for readers age 12 and older.​

Set in the future - war is everything and both sides will do what they must to win. Our story follows a group of mech pilots, the Chaser Platoon who are sent on what amounts to a suicide mission. What they uncover is a dark secret that will have massive ramifications for the war, if they can live long enough to report their findings. It’s an action packed story with mystery and intrigue set against the backdrop of a war between battling mechs!


Producing comics is a complex process … there are lots of elements to deal with and many people involved in the process that are out of our control … and many times out of our state. Everybody is human and mistakes can be made, and due to the nature of comic production - it’s not always easy to catch those mistakes. That is what happened with Chaser Platoon: The Collected Edition. There were two covers for this incredible trade paperback, one (the Kickstarter edition) by Tim Eldred and the standard retailer cover by Ryan Miller with colors by Zach Bassett. It’s the standard cover where the error was made - the inside credit page only gives credit to the Kickstarter edition artist and fails to single out the incredible work of Ryan Miller. Ryan worked hard on this cover and turned in a dynamic piece, only made that much better by Zach’s colors. Ryan Miller is a great artist and deserves the credit for the cover. Instead of trying to find where the mistake was made or casting blame,  I am personally apologizing for this oversight (one that will be corrected with future printings) and I encourage you to check out Ryan’s other work and if you see him at a comic convention - please let him know what a great job he did with the Chaser Platoon cover.

Outtakes form the Kickstarter Video

The First Phase of Chaser Platoon: The Collected Edition was Funded through Kickstarter

We are simply amazed at the outpouring of support for Chaser Platoon: The Collected Edition. These last few days were a real nail-biter, hope was beginning to sink - we had folks withdrawing their bids and the goal seemed to be slipping out of our grasp. But in the 11th hour, bids rolled in and saved the day!

We are truly humbled by your support, thank you.

NOW, it’s time to really batten down the hatches and get back to work on coloring the book, soliciting it through DIamond and then getting it to the printer.

The original Chaser Platoon from 1991 - finally collected and for the FIRST time in full color!

Exclusive Edition

By Tim Eldred

We are thrilled to finally announce that Chaser Platoon: The Collected Edition trade paperbacks are here!  We are ready to ship the books and associated rewards with the exception of the book plates.  We should have them relatively soon, seems to be a glitch with the postal service.  Our deadline was October 2017 and we are proud to say that we WILL make our deadline! 

Thank you again for all of your support!  Making comics is tough… being an independent publisher is harder.  With your help through crowd funding programs like this, we can bring you quality stories that are unique and different.  That is something we take great pride in.
