THE BART ROMANS COLLECTION
SERIAL FEATURE VERSIONS VOL. 1
2-DL DVD Set
Including
THE BARON'S AFRICAN WAR
LOST ISLAND OF KIOGA
SPYSMASHER RETURNS
TORPEDO OF DOOM
NYOKA AND THE LOST SECRETS OF HIPPOCRATES

Longtime serial supercollector and Squadron member Bart "Barcroft" Romans has dev0ted a great deal of effort to finding the best transfers he could of the Century 66 titles and generously made his collection of Republic serial feature versions available to the Squadron. This 10-hour 2-DL-DVD edition collects 6 of those 1 hour 40 minute features.
Please Note: This is NOT a typical Squadron DVD collection as it is not sourced from new transfers from film. The video sources for these features vary and are all VHS-to-DVD image resolution. The quality here is basically complete and watchable, "good to very good," but unrestored and so best suited for viewing for reference and on smaller TV screens or computers/tablets, not larger TVs. We are offering these titles, though, as the content has never been commercially released in any form and the features are extremely difficult to find yet often requested by fans & researchers.
Thanks to Bart for sharing these with us. Future volumes with 6 more titles each will follow later on.

This title is being prepared for release in Blu-Ray format.
