In “Hell Inc.” by Osmarco Valladão, sometimes a safe house can be anything but… the art on this SF adventure is stand out and I was drawn in from the get go two weeks ago when this Volume launched.

MEET THE ACES WEEKLY TEAM

For those who came in late, or who have been asleep under a rock for, well, years, Aces Weekly is published by David Lloyd, creator of graphic novels such as the brilliant Kickback and co-creator of V for Vendetta.

See this guy? Look. See the concentration… the focus… the dedication to service etched into every line… That’s V for Vendetta artist David Lloyd at a recent signing, not only enjoying the privilege of meeting nice people but also selling volumes of Aces Weekly via the coded access cards the team produce that all come with a free “thank you” sketch from David as a bonus.

He’s aided and abetted in the Aces Weekly project by artist and writer Bambos Georgiou, who’s only the co-founder of the comic, but also Subscriptions Manager, as well as being a regular Ace contributors, responsible in part for the “Mr Custa and Dr Queer” series.

Also on the Aces Weekly team is Simon Russell, the title’s Managing Editor, responsible for all tech related issues and related design needs, who is also an Ace contributor and a creator who takes the high road in addressing the intelligence of his readers instead of settling for the lowest level he can reach.

Finally, there’s Phat Fury, the preferred moniker of the dedicated editor of the Aces Weekly blog at www.acesweeklyblog.com – who fills his space with lots of great interviews with past and present Aces, plus other non-Aces related items and links to comics subjects of many kinds.
