Comic Book by Doug Moench - EclipseFollowing the same vein as the previous post, we’ve created a gallery of covers for the Aztec Ace 15-issue series from 1984/1985. Published by Eclipse Comics, written by Doug Moench, and illustrated by Dan Day with others assisting:  inker Nestor Redondo, inker Ron Harris, artist Mike Gustovich, artist Tom Yeates, colorist Philip DeWalt, colorist Steve Oliff, colorist Sam Parsons, letterer Carrie Spiegle, and Eclipse editor cat yronwode. The Aztec Ace logo was created by Denis McFarling.

Advance to the Gallery!

The basic premise of the story is that a time traveller named Ace (who’s real name is Caza) works to keep time from coming apart by contamination from alternative realities and dimensions. His mortal enemy is a fellow by the name of Nine-Crocodile who attempts to destroy other dimensions including our own so he can protect his. Ace hails from the 23rd Century, but he lives in Mexico during the Aztec era where from his base he launches his activities to various times throughout history.

Our hero is accompanied by his female companion, a woman named Bridget whom he saved from ne’er-do-goods hoods in 1940, and his technological associate, a bodyless head named Tempus Fugit. Although out of print, it’s not hard to find the series. Go get it. It’s lots of fun.

Given that Ace travels time, he often bumps into historical characters and events. Our favorite moment in the first issues is when Ace stumbled upon a naked Ben Franklin.

We like comics. And we like music. And we like movies. Pop culture is our game! But we also have a serious side. Current events, history, and politics are a part of the Comics A-Go-Go experience and we hope you find interesting things to read and look at while you traverse our website pages.
