Attack of the Yukasaurus!
Aces Halloween is so much fun! Why don’t we just do holidays for the rest of Aces? acescomic: KS: Oh my God, you guys, just make out already. ES: Yeah, get a room. Make it a trampoline room like Goofy’s Bounce House at ToonTown. Actually, no- I call dibs on that kissing room.
Cheerleaders are Magical Creatures
Well, they are! acescomic: KS: Emma you did such a good job on regular Cleopatra and Slutty Cleopatra, I want to be both for Halloween next year. I will be one during the day and the other during the SLUTTY SLUTTY NIGHT. ES: I’ve done the ol’ Halloween costume change before. And by “costume change”, I mean pieces of costume coming off throughout the day so that by late afternoon, my costume...
Aces: M-I-C-K-E-Y M-O-U-S-E →
It’s no fun doing a Halloween story if you can’t get your webcomic characters to dress up as the kids from the 1950’s Mickey Mouse Club… acescomic: KS: I teach at a performing arts camp over the summer, and every year there’s a theme dance. This past year it was a “Black and White” and a bunch of the counselors came as the 1950’s Mickey Mouse Club Kids. That’s where I...

Aces Guest Comics, Take Three: Maggie Lei
acescomic: KS : Thank you Maggie Lei for today’s take on Rosie’s Army of Doom, Death, and Destruction, from all the way back on Page 26 (for the original, click here.) Rocking work, Ms. Lei. I think Maggie’s guest comic should win the award for “Aces page you would least like to run into in a dark alley.” Without further ado, a bit about Maggie: ” My name is Maggie and I like dudes...
Aces: ACES GUEST COMICS, TAKE THREE- RENEE FAUNDO →
acescomic: KS + ES: Hi Gang! We’re doing some guest comics for the next little bit, and thought it would be fun to let some guest artists take a crack at illustrating some of our favorite Aces pages. The guest artists are all going to be Emma’s hot-pants Cal Arts friends from the animation program she…
There’s no problems like BRABLEMS! acescomic: ES: “Brablems” Copyright Emma Steinkellner, 2012 KS: It’s true, you guys, Ems did make up the phrase “Brablems.” BUT I MADE UP THE EXAMPLES! (Maniacal laughter.)
acescomic: ES: Ohhhhhh snap! Homeboy just clarified his spiritual beliefs. KS:You can really see Dan’s under-eye circles on this page. Clarifying your religious beliefs is nothing to mess around with.
acescomic: ES: We’ve introduced a new character to Aces: Fifth’s Heart. KS: Fifth’s Heart is hot! (Just like the rest of Fifth, natch.)
Aren't You Going to Tell the Entire School You're...
Aces Monday! acescomic: ES: I’m sorry Dan, was that a threat? KS: Hee hee hee, I like Dan’s versions of threats.
I’m so, so, so, so, so proud of this storyline of our webcomic. acescomic: ES: HarperStare saves the day! KS: It’s good to see Harper using her powers of pushiness for good.
So much drama, so many nerd jokes, all on Aces today! acescomic: ES: I really want to see that Star Trek episode. KS: This is like the only Star Trek episode I do want to see.
acescomic: ES: We’ve added a new character to Aces: Fifth’s conscience! KS: I don’t know which I like better- Fifth with a conscience or without. I’m so glad that now we have both and I don’t have to choose!
Dark Night of the Soul
acescomic: ES: Keanus Reeves just said “Whoa.” KS: I like how when Rosie has to make a major life descision, the light turns green like space aliens are invading.
It Isn't a Protest Without Abba...
acescomic: ES: Wa- waa-waaaaaaah! KS: For serious, waaaah.
Best Protest in the History of Ever!
Occupy Awesomeness! acescomic: ES: Now I want to just have this protest, controversy or no. KS: Seriously, f—- dinner and a movie, I want to go to a protest this weekend!
I WANT TO WRITE A PLAY FOR THIS STAGE!
Incredible floating stage on Lake Constance in Bregenz, Austria. This is Verdi’s opera, “A Masked Ball”, being played in 1999 at the Bregenz Festival. And it featured a giant book being read by a skeleton. Source: Telegraph.co.uk
You Don't Always Have to Expect the Worst of Me
We are having SUCH a good time with this storyline of the webcomic. It is juicy times infinity! acescomic: ES: Fifth, throw the word “fiscal” into any rant and you’re sealing your own doom. KS: I love the image of Fifth ranting about his political views and no one listening. We need to do this as a standalone page sometime. (Also, you guys, all the Aces pages on Tumblr are photo reply...
Why Don't You Take a Cue From Your Unshowered,...
Occupy This Webcomic! acescomic:
The Ad Runs
Aces Moooooonday. acescomic: ES: Shit. Can we play a musical sting from The Godfather now? “The ad runs. Make it look like an accident.” KS: Oooh, we need to do an Aces Godfather Fantasy Sequence. Well Godfather I and II , a lesser webcomic can deal with the scraps of a Godfather III Fantasy Sequence.
That is a Force of Darkness You Do Not Want to...
acescomic: ES: Harper, sure you can make some space inside your brain. Just push aside some of the Selena Gomez song lyrics. KS: Harper would Three Musketeers sword fight her way out of the place before she got rid of her Selena Gomez brain lyrics.
The Parochial School Slam Was My Idea.
Plots are always best when they’re thickening. acescomic: ES: Damn, Steinkellner Sisters, how do you possibly come up with all these fascinating moral quandaries? It couldn’t have a source in…REAL LIFE?! KS: Yeah, this exact same thing happened when I was an editor on my high school paper. Watch and see as I use art to tweak basically-real-life!
You Want Your Interesting? You Got Your...
BIG HUGE NEW WEBCOMIC STORY. acescomic: ES- Game-changer! Or, I guess, gay-changer… KS- I’ve been looking forward to doing this story with Aces for a long time. I hope you guys are looking forward to our characters getting into some serious hot water… because that’s exactly what’s about to happen.
I love Los Angeles. I know a lot of people go there and they see just a huge...– David Lynch, Catching The Big Fish I saw this float across my dash a few times last month, but I’m reblogging it now because I get it. In the last week, I’ve forced myself to leave my office at lunchtime, and each time, I can’t help but gasp. The light, even in smelly downtown with highrises, is so...
Are You Trying to Ruin Me Forever?
acescomic: ES: I think “friends, whatever” defines Fifth’s attitude toward personal relationships. “Friend-slash-butlers” now THAT’S where it’s at. KS: I could resist making Fifth and Rosie do the walking-backwards-and-bumping-into-each-other-and-having-an-awkward-mini-conversation-about-it. Block comedy is the cutest!
