Product Description

About the Author

With over 300 2000 AD stories to his name - not to mention over 250 Daily Star Judge Dredd strips - Alan Grant's prolific creative record speaks for itself. Outside the Galaxy's Greatest Comic, Grant is well-known to Batman fans following a lengthy run on various incarnations of the title. More recently he has adapted Robert Louis Stevenson's classic novels Kidnapped and Doctor Jekyll and Mr Hyde in Graphic Novel format with artist Cam Kennedy. His television work includes scripts for the BBC series Ace Lightning and the Carnival of Doom and he is currently writing a feature length animation for a German company. John Wagner has been scripting for 2000 AD for more years than he cares to remember. His creations include Judge Dredd, Strontium Dog, Ace Trucking, Al's Baby, Button Man and Mean Machine. Outside of 2000 AD his credits include Star Wars, Lobo, The Punisher and the critically acclaimed A History of Violence. Massimo Belardinelli's career started with painting the backgrounds for animated cartoons for Rosi Studio in Rome. In 1977 he started working for 2000 AD where his distinctive style graced many strips including Dan Dare, Slaine, Meltdown Man and Ace Trucking Co. Belardinelli has been much praised for his delicate brushwork and intricate representations of the fantastic. Massimo Belardinelli died in March 2007. One of 2000 AD's best-loved and most honoured artists, Ian Gibson is responsible for the co-creation of The Ballad of Halo Jones (with Alan Moore), and created Bella Bagley, an unfortunate character in Judge Dredd's world who fell headover- heels in love with 'Old Stoney Face' himself! His work outside the Galaxy's Greatest Comic includes Chronicles of Genghis Grimtoad, Star Wars: Boba Fett, X-Men Unlimited, plus the designs for the TV series Reboot.

4.0 out of 5 stars A must have for Ace fans. 3 April 2010
Verified Purchase
This Volume seems to have slightly better paper quality than the first.
To put it simply, if you have the first, then you simply must purchase its companion, which brings an end to the Ace series.
Others have said that this is not worth buying because Belardinelli lost interest in doing the artwork etc. etc.
However, although Ace does reach a parallel universe, he remains the same good old Ace until the final story "The Garpetbaggers" where quality does take a turn for the worst. With a new, less subtle, less likeable character called "Evil Guts" the story takes a tired trolley around a movie studio and hilarity doesn't ensue.
But with that said, Ace remains true right up to the penultimate story, "The Doppelgarp", which serves our hero well as a swan song.
So...
Sad that the last quarter of this volume seriously misses the mark - but our hero manages to say goodbye and spin us a good yarn for the first 3/4 of the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars First 1/3 - 5 stars. Second 2/3 - 1.5 Stars 8 July 2009
The first portion brings back Ace Garp and his unfortunate crew about 2 years after they were imprisoned in the "Bide-a-Wee" Space Penitentiary for an ill-judged get-rich-quick scheme. They are now accompanied by Captain Evil Blood, a pirate, one of the most reprehensible characters ever committed to paper, and a fine addition to the roster.
Gleeful, black humour/ great bizarre art by Massimo Belardinelli, who has sadly passed away.
Unfortunately once Ace Garp is killed, and resurrected the strip takes an abrupt turn for the worse in both script and art. Apparently the writers were heartily sick of the character and one can tell.
Buy it, read up to the end of the "Nightlight flight", then put it aside. You'll be happier.
