We’ve been hugely remiss and totally failed to make mention of the fact that Aces Weekly Volume 50 is now running! So let’s make up for that, just a little…
This landmark event for the digital comics anthology published by artist and writer David Lloyd offers the same mad, marvelous, and massive mix it usually is, but even more so this volume, “as if somehow the most identifiable and special specific nature of our personality was destined to be dominant in this milestone of volumes,” he noted recently.
Tube in now for fantastic adventure, surreal satire, crazy comedy, social comment, thrillers, drama, plus some storytelling at its most abstract, from new Aces as well as familiar faces, including Chris Geary, Marcello Bondi, David Leach, Federico Zilli, Lew Stringer, Jok and Santullo, Alejandro Velasquez, Tobias Taitt, Anthony Smith, Jack Briglio, Steven Legge, Fer Calvi, and Paul Rainey, Bambos Georgiou, Mychailo Kazybrid, and Philip Alan Whitmore.
All that talent, and still just £1 per week, in any currency, which gets you Volume 50, 51, 52, etc, etc, in seven-weekly parts coming directly to you via cyberspace, like a guy on a bike but without having to answer the doorbell.
