Welcome to ACES WEEKLY Volume 35, Week Five!

This week, readers, I'm introducing you to the first of two previews of stories planned to appear in coming volumes of Aces Weekly, which also showcase the comics creating talent that is being developed very successfully in an art school in Florence that I was privileged to be invited to as a consultant a few months ago. Outrun, by Matteo Filippi and Marco Morale is not the work of professionals, but of art students with a few years of training to complete. These guys, together with more you'll be seeing, have real doubts about whether they'll ever get employed, and also see the possibilty of being commissioned by US or UK publishers as some kind of crazy dream. I think you'll agree they have every reason to be much more optimistic... : )
