Enemy Ace Joins The Artist’s Edition Ranks!

Enemy Ace AE

Joe Kubert’s Seminal DC Comics Series On Its Way

San Diego, CA (July 16, 2014) – Reimagining the popular war stories that filled the pages of comic books throughout the 1950’ and 1960’s, Joe Kubert’s Enemy Ace made an unlikely hero into a genre icon. The classic tales of airborne suspense that first thrilled readers over 50 years ago, will make their mark all over again with Joe Kubert Enemy Ace: Artist’s Edition.

Created by Robert Kanigher and Joe Kubert in 1968 as an alternate take on the highly successful war-based comics, Enemy Ace introduced a hero that by all superficial definitions was a villain. A high-flying pilot for the Germans, Hans von Hammer was a star soldier but morally conflicted by the duties that his role demanded.

“I’ve loved every single one of our Artist’s Editions, but for me, this is the big one,” said Dirk Wood, IDW’s Vice President of Marketing. “Ask Scott Dunbier, I’ve bugged him about the possibility of this book since pretty much my first day at IDW. Kanigher and Kubert’s Enemy Ace was my absolute favorite comic as a kid, and remains so to this day. To see that material again, in this format, is going to be something special.”

Joe Kubert: Enemy Ace Artist’s Edition presents five entire issues of the decorated DC Comics series Star Spangled War Stories, including #139, 140, 141, 142 144. Scanned directly from the original art, this complete collection will also feature bonus material like covers and promos. At over 150 pages, the Artist’s Edition measures at 12” x 17”.

The masterwork joins the two Artist’s Editions that already showcased Kubert, Joe Kubert’s Tarzan of the Apes and Joe Kubert’s Tor.
