Aces Weekly: Now We Are Five!

Aces Weekly Now We Are  FiveThis week marks the beginning of David Lloyd‘s magnificent Aces Weekly‘s sixth year – and sees the launch of Volume 30 of the digital anthology comic, sent to subscribers screens in seven super parts every Monday, with all further volumes rolling right along after.

This volume features strips by James Romberger, delivering an accidental thriller set on the stage of New York City called “East 12th Street, NYC, 1984”; a mad satire from Willem Samuel titled “Horror In The Holy City”; a spooky short from Stewart Moore; and Ryan Taylor brings back that gifted nipper we all love, Grace, in “Grace’s Imaginary Menagerie”.

“It’s like having a mini gallery of great art and story, big and lovely to look at,” David enthuses. We never argue with David.
