Doug Moench’s Time Travel Adventure ‘Aztec Ace’ Collected For The First Time

by Brendan M. Allen

Aztec Ace, the cult classic from the mind of comics legend Doug Moench, is reprinted for the first time in Aztec Ace: The Complete Collection. A collaboration between Dark Horse Comics and IT’S ALIVE!, Aztec Ace: The Complete Collection is an archival hardcover that restores all 500+ pages of Moench’s time travel adventure series.

First published by Eclipse Comics in 1984, Aztec Ace is an action-packed, intellectual, time-travel adventure starring Caza (AKA Ace) as he travels between the Aztec Empire and his home in the 23rd century. Ace, along with his pupil Bridget Chronopolis and his navigator Head (the floating disembodied head of Sigmund Freud), struggles to save his dimension from time paradoxes created by his enemy, the mysterious Nine-Crocodile.

Aztec Ace: The Complete Collection hardcover collects the full fifteen-issue run for the first time, and includes a bonus Aztec Ace short story by Moench and Tim Sale, a pin-up gallery featuring new artwork by Bill Sienkiewicz, ChrisCross, Dan Day, Jeff Lemire, Joe Staton, Jok, Kelley Jones, Matt Kindt, Michael Avon Oeming, Michael Wm Kaluta, Paul Gulacy, Paul Pope, Ron Harris, and more.

Aztec Ace: The Complete Collection hardcover will be available for $79.99 at comic shops on July 20, 2022, and from bookstores August 2, 2022.
