ACE KILROY is back!
After facing Count Dracula in Season 1, Ace was sent on another mission, this time to the mountains of Bavaria to find the mad Dr. Frankenstein. While there, he had to keep one step ahead of the Nazis, and avoid not one but two monsters--the undead creature known as Frankenstein's Monster and the half-human half-animal Wolf Man!
ACE KILROY Season 2ran on ACEKILROY.COM from August 6, 2012 to June 16, 2013, delivering the same thrills, action, and excitement you've come to expect from the strip.
As we did at the end of Season 1, we are now offering Season 2 in print form, both in regular and treasury-sized editions (because bigger is better when it comes to comics!), featuring the complete story arc plus lots of bonus features like original art, pin-ups, and other rarities!
In between Seasons 1 and 2, ACE KILROY was nominated for an Eagle Award for FAVORITE WEB COMIC and nominated for two 2012 PHILADELPHIA GEEK AWARDS for Comic Book Writer of the Year and Comic Book Artist of the Year, winning the former.
Now we're looking to go even further, and make ACE KILROY bigger and more exciting! In addition to the serialized webcomic, we're working on original comic book adventures, prose stories, toys, maybe even a old-time radio show-style podcast!
We're excited to have ACE KILROY be part of this amazing wave of independently-produced, creator-owned comics that are out there on web. We feel we have something really special, that harkens back to the classic newspaper strips of old but with a modern twist and limitless potential. We want to do ACE KILROY for a long long time--but we can't do it without your help!
Join the mission and SUPPORT ACE KILROY!

A few words about the rewards:
• You can add a copy of ACE KILROY VOLUME 1 (regular-sized edition) to any tier for an additional $10.00!
• Joel F. Naprstek was a former instructor of ours at the Joe Kubert School. His classic, pulp illustration style is perfect for Ace Kilroy so we're thrilled to have one of his paintings grace our book. Check out his website to see examples of his amazing work!
• The "Monster Rally" is an 11 oz. classic coffee mug, featuring Ace, Frankenstein, and the Wolf Man comin' at ya!
• The Ace Kilroy Mego dolls are being made by master customizer Mark Sautter. Each doll will come on a classic Mego-sized card with a blister that allows the figure to be removed without damage!
7/6/13 - STRETCH GOALS!
We are *thrilled* to announce that as of July 5th, we have reached our initial funding goal of $4,000.00! Thanks to everyone who pledged and spread the word about our campaign and ACE KILROY in general.
Okay, so now what? Well, as we mentioned in our video, we have a whole ton of projects that we'd like to try featuring Ace and the other characters--other comic books, prose stories, and a OTR-style podcast among them. All of the money that is pledged from this point on will go towards those new goals.
So we'd like to set our next goal at $5,000.00. We still have ten days left to go in the campaign, and we think we can do it! The reward we are offering if we reach that new goal is an ACE KILROY NEWSPAPER EDITION. This will be a 10x13" Sunday Comics-style folded one-sheet that will feature 3-4 all-new one-shot adventures of Ace and the rest! It'll be the closest thing you can get to those classic Sunday Comics inserts of old, except with us you're not stuck with the rest of the paper and getting that black smudge on your hands!
If we reach the $5,000.00 mark, EVERYONE WHO HAS PLEDGED gets a copy. So even if you have already pledged, you'll still get one, free of charge! We hope that this will inspire everyone to keep spreading the word and helping us get to 5K--because if you do, you'll all potentially look like this:
(Eggs and milk not included--though maybe they will if he hit 6K)
Thanks again to everyone, and let's keep going!

Risks and challenges
We are proud to say that we fulfilled all our rewards during our last Kickstarter campaign, on time and complete. Now that we're back again, we have our schedules in place to be able to meet those goals again. We want to have ACE KILROY run forever, and we couldn't do that if we didn't meet the promises we've made to our awesome fans. So pledge with confidence we will deliver!
But if for some reason there IS a delay with any of the rewards, we will ship the available items first and then follow up with the rest, and no additional shipping costs to you. Ace wouldn't have it any other way!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
