Written and created by Edwin Acevedo, The Ace is an indie comic featuring artwork Ibai Canales, Sean “Sweens” Sweeny, and Allen Allonzo. It was released following a successful crowdfunding effort that I supported (in full disclosure). It was published under the Drawing Aces Comics Group banner.
David Diaz is a young man who takes care of his single mom and is struggling to find purpose. Just before his twenty-first birthday, alien armor attaches to him. He soon finds that it gives him great strength and the ability to fly. One night, he gets into the fight of his life when a giant alien shark shows up. David must battle to protect his mom, his neighborhood, and his own life.
I loved the story. It creates an excellent story about a young man trying to be a hero. Hats off to Acevedo for creating a short, but epic comic book that channels what we geeks and nerds have been missing. Not only is the main plot interesting, but the epilogue and the bonus story are both excellent as well.
That goes for the art as well. I liked the designs, the character illustrations, but especially the Ace armor that David wore was really sleek. My favorite part was the battle between David and the alien. I also enjoyed the fan art gallery in the back.
