CrossGen's Space Ace #1
By Brian Jacks
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 are whetting retro appetites with 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 condition.
