Doug Moench's Aztec Ace Collected for the First Time by It's Alive! on Kickstarter
IDW's It's Alive! imprint is planning to collect Aztec Ace, the 1980s cult hit indy comic created and written by Doug Moench. Drew Ford has launched a Kickstarter for Aztec Ace: The Complete Collection, which will collect every issue of the comic in a 500-page book.
Aztec Ace: The Complete Collection will be a 500+ page, action-packed, intellectual, time-travel adventure starring a citizen of the original Aztec Empire named Caza (AKA Ace). Traveling between the ancient world and the 23rd century, Ace – along with his pupil Bridget Chronopolis and his navigator, the floating disembodied head of Sigmund Freud – struggles to save his own dimension from time paradoxes created by his enemy, the mysterious Nine-Crocodile.
Edited by Cat Yronwode and illustrated by artists including Dan Day, Michael Hernandez, Ron Harris, and Thomas Yeates, this is the first time the original issues have been in print since their original publication in 1984 by Eclipse Comics. Rewards are set to include sketches by superstar artists including Bill Sienkiewicz, Paul Pope, Jeff Lemire, Michael Avon Oeming, Kelley Jones, Joe Staton, and more, while stretch goals include "a cover gallery of all original 15 covers from the series, a sketch gallery of all the one-of-a-kind Aztec Ace sketches, an Aztec Ace short story written by Doug Moench and illustrated by Tim Sale, and the publication of a never-before-seen 52-page Aztec Ace script by Doug Moench."
Head to the Kickstarter below (and do it before June 6th for early bird specials).
