Comics are the thing. They’re not A thing. They are the thing. The thing. Like Aces Weekly publisher David Lloyd, I think that’s cogent enough for a sneak peek at some strips in the upcoming Volume 47 of the digital anthology, coming your way from 7th September 2020…
For those who came in late… Aces Weekly is the pioneering, low-cost, exclusively onscreen comics art magazine published by David Lloyd, the artist who brought you V For Vendetta with Alan Moore, working with a small team that has included fellow comics creator, artist and editor Bambos Georgiou from the get go, back in 2012.
Aces Weekly costs just £1 per week, in any currency, gets 150 pages, including Extras, coming to you in seven parts over seven weeks, featuring some of the finest new comics creators from across the globe in stories ranging from the extraordinary to the extra-extraordinary. Give it a try!
Oh, and while you’re there, you might want to check out the title’s first Collection – all six chapters of The Flight, from Jeffrey Vaughn and The Art of Brendon and Brian Fraim, totaling up 134 pages, for £3.99, $5, or €4.49! This is a direct offer from Jeff that Aces Weekly are happy to be hosting for him – check out how to buy it here.
