PREVIEW: ‘Space Ace’ #1

Official Press Release

[Space Ace #1]

Twenty years ago, master artist Don Bluth (An American Tail) rocketed
arcades into orbit by blending feature-quality animation with revolutionary
computer game play. Now, on August 20th, everyone who loves the Bluth art
style is invited once again to a universe of lasers, star ships and
astro-babes! Completing the DRAGON’S LAIR one-two punch, MVCreations and
CrossGen proudly present SPACE ACE: DEFENDER OF THE UNIVERSE #1!

Based on the hit SF-based arcade game, the six-issue mini-series heralds the
return of cosmic hero Space Ace, galactic hottie Kimmy and their newly
adopted — and age regressed — bundle of joy Baby Borf! Picking up right
where the video game left off, our cosmic couple is looking forward to some
quality time… but that’s hard to do when the effects of the Infanto Ray
keep de-aging Ace into the pint-sized Dexter! And to top that off, they’re
being hunted by a dastardly villain who may hold the cure to Ace’s chaotic

“Working with Don Bluth has truly been a dream come true,” stated
MVCreations group editor Leanne Shaw. “It’s thrilling to collaborate with
someone who’s had such an impact both on the way we see animation and also
on how animation itself is now created. Don’s films practically
reinvigorated animation in the early ’80s and ’90s, and his films and video
games pioneered the limits of technology within the animation process.”

“It’s a tremendous honor to be working with Don and the entire Bluth Group,”
continued Shaw. “They’ve been such a key role in developing the story as
well as hand-picking the entire art teams for both titles. Both SPACE ACE
and DRAGON’S LAIR are absolutely gorgeous series that look more like
animated movies than comic books.”

“Writer Robert Kirkman (Invincible) brings a quirky and witty side to the
entire adventure, incorporating everything we love about space operas and
seamlessly blending it with humor and unbelievable comedic timing,” said
MVCreations president Val Staples. “Robert is joined by penciler Paulo
Borges, who is a newcomer to American audiences. Paulo is a former Disney
artist, whose work has appeared in Europe and South America; he jumped ship
to work with Don Bluth on the project of a lifetime! Meanwhile, colorists
Pat Duke and Grafiksismik have pulled out all the stops to create an
eye-popping color palette that will just blow you away! This will definitely
be a book that will stand out from the crowd!”

SPACE ACE: DEFENDER OF THE UNIVERSE #1 can now be ordered in the CrossGen
section of the June Diamond Previews catalog. So strap in for light speed
