Don't frowny face, back ACE!

When you're at your local comic book shop today (and say hi to your friendly neighborhood comic book clerk!), there may be a lot of stuff to pick up on this new comics Wednesday, but lemme tell you something: you don't need to buy duplicates of Convergence: Ambush Bug vs. Heckler #1 just so you can bag 'n' board 'em. (Leave that to me so my copies will be worth more later.) And instead of a second copy of Wolverine: Still Dead #18, why not pick up a copy of the second issue of ACE magazine, the new monthly periodical devoted to contemporary comics, creators, and characters! ACE is edited by Jon. B. Cooke of Comic Book Artist and Comic Book Creator, so it, like Rex the Wonder Dog, has a great pedigree.

ACE #2, on sale today, features a whole galore-load of cool articles, interviews, features, spotlights and a nifty price guide in the back. Why, here's the ACE website itself to tell us all about its contents. Take it away, ACE website!
ACE #2’s top features are “The Age of Ultron is NOW!” as ACE looks at the new Avengers movie every which way, including a behind-the-scenes report on the sequel, as well as a talk with Ultron creator, Rascally Roy Thomas! Plus we examine Free Comic Book Day and this year’s offerings, and the best (and most collectible) FCBD issues of the past. Additional features include in-depth interviews with Chip Zdarksy (Sex Criminals artist and writer of Howard the Duck), and comics legend Howard Chaykin (Satellite Sam, Black Kiss); a dossier on Marvel’s "Merc with a Mouth," the dastardly Deadpool; chat with indy cartoonist Lucy Knisley; take a tour of DC’s new L.A. digs; look over the new Dark Circle Comics line-up; and celebrate the 100th anniversary of famed Superman editor Mort Weisinger’s birth. Oh, and there’s reviews of the titles you may have overlooked and sneak peeks at cool stuff to look out for!

I'd buy issue #2, on sale today, even if it didn't have a fantastic article by my very bestest pal John DiBello, on everybody's favorite Ryan Reynolds costly character, Deadpool!

I helped with the research by reading all the Deadpool comic books, but John got the byline on the article. That's okay. He gave me a box of cookies for helping.

So be sure to pick up a copy, and then bury your nose in it.

I'd pay good money for Ambush Bug vs. Heckler. (Great job on the article!)
