Welcome to ACES WEEKLY Volume 31, Week One!

This 7-week volume is now complete, and you can use our exclusive Week2Week facility to read all of its episodic strips from their opening to their finale!  Just jump from one week to the next!

One of the things new subscribers to Aces Weekly often perceive is that we tend to major on art rather than panel count. This is accidental, mostly arising because most of our Aces are splitting their time between jobs that are pioneering - like ours - and better-paying, like others!  But regardless of the reason for it, the resultant weighted focus on the art on the comic page rather than the pace of the narrative can shine a light on an element of comics storytelling that has often been underused in much comics creation : i.e. the information that can exist in the art for the reader without any script to accompany it.  This use of art as the sole informer is most uncomprisingly shown in Chris Geary's, Kora. Chris doesn't use script if he thinks the reader should understand the action of his story without it - and we're happy to give him the freedom to test you with that discipline. Chris goes back to the basics of silent movies with Kora, so if you've ever seen any of those you'll know just how to view it. Watch carefully, and enjoy the ride... But don't be afraid to tell us if he takes you over too many bumps along the way... : )
