Volume Six of this revolutionary digital comic Aces Weekly begins its latest seven-issue, seven-week this week, once again showcasing some of the brightest talent from across the globe in an exclusively digital weekly comic art magazine published by David Lloyd.
Offering great newcomers and industry greats the opportunity to connect directly with their readers to tell any story they want to tell, this latest volume features a new story from one of the finest Italian creators of comic art, Laura Scarpa, with War Painter.
