Aces Weekly is now live! (Updated)
The brand new digital comic anthology Aces Weekly is up and running! The website went live a short time ago and everything is looking good.
Aces Weekly is an online anthology comic that you can access from any computer. Unlike some digital comics it is not restricted to iPads or similar devices. You simply subscribe online via PayPal and within seconds the comic strips are unlocked for you to read on the Aces Weekly website. (Although it's not designed to work well on small devices like iPhones, but it looks great on computers and tablets.)
Your seven issue subscription (only £6.99/$9.99/€7.99) makes issue 1 accessible today, issue 2 next Sunday, and so on. The first issue features the beginnings of five brand new serials plus a complete, all-new Combat Colin funventure. There's also numerous pages of bonus material including character designs, pencil sketches and suchlike, plus a scan of the original artwork of the very first Combat Colin strip from 1987.
This is a creator owned project and all material has been produced with no money up front but we all have a share of any profits. So supporting Aces Weekly is supporting individual creators, not some mega-rich corporation. I hope you'll all subscribe and become part of this exciting new venture from day one!
