Welcome to ACES WEEKLY Volume 42, Week Five!

Friends, On our Facebook page, and to all other entrants, we've announced the winner of our Aces Weekly script contest : Mark J Howard.  Mark's script will soon adorn the great art of up-and-coming comics creator, Alejandro Mangiarotti Velasquez, and our superior letterer, Dave Evans , in Week 6 and 7 of this volume!  Together they have all produced a very fine thing, which you'll all see very soon! ALL of the entries in this contest were great, and every one of them enhanced and complimented Alejandro's art through a mix of different approaches to the possiblities offered by it.  All of those script entries will be available to view in the Extras section of Volume 43 - one in every week - from December 30th onward, so that all the entries can be seen and enjoyed by our subscribers and other readers, now, or at a later time, to see the whole collection of them.  This contest of ours was simply meant as a bit of celebratory fun to mark our birth, but, as everyone knows who works in this medium, there is more talent out there than there are publishers to use that talent in this current, unnaturally-restricted, market of comics storytelling, which is dependent on print and paper for its entire existence.  Fight to expand our market through cyberspace, my brothers and sisters!  It's the only way we'll all get the oxygen we deserve to breathe as deeply as we should... : )

Remember, we ALWAYS want to hear from you!  Ask questions, talk to us all, post to our blog, and see us over at facebook.com/acesweekly. Or send mail to info@acesweekly.co.uk to see it right here, whatever you want to say!
