Webcomic description

An undead DJ, a Gorgon woman with super strength, and a mutated rooster-man-with-a-plan work for a shadow branch of the FBI dedicated to preventing powered artifacts from falling in the wrong hands... when they're not dealing with tourists, of course.

The amount of sass on that boy!

Watch there be a plot twist that Alfred's dad is actually Willy Wonka, and on the other side of the elevator is his chocolate factory. I mean, his methods of entering the factory during his tour were also different. >>

The Rest (C): Someone who now wants chocolate. Good chocolate. The ones filled with caramel or cherry/raspberry coulis or whatever. No dark chocolate though, that's the devil's chocolate.

Couldn't have said it any better, Frankie. Although, for an abandoned elevator, it's got some sweet paintings. 8I

How's everyone doing? I've been hanging on; I'm slowly but surely trying to play some games that I own on Steam but never touched before (at the moment, I'm going through Broken Age, the game that would have been my first Kickstarter pledge, had my credit card not been declined when payments were being processed. :/ )!

Anyways, Uma took a different approach to handling the backgrounds for this page, since hand-drawing a casino would've been a lot of work; The top panel's BG is actually one of the many pictures I took from when I was in Vegas, last year, while the bottom's was taken from a Youtube video, since I did not venture into that part of Caesar's-err, I mean, "Circe's Gardens". I'm really curious to know what you folks think about them; if you're not a fan, the future pages will be hand-drawn, anyway, so don't worry about this being a permanent thing!

I wonder what's behind the doors?

Sorry for the slight delay; everyone was struck with Animal Crossing fever, myself included; I can't even tell you what happened, two weeks ago.

Here's a little fun fact: Unlike Moonlit Brew, where I unfortunately have been exclusively relying on Google Maps to find reference pics of Seattle, I've actually visited Las Vegas a couple of times since ACES was created, and the top panel's background is based off of a reference picture I took when I was at Caesar's Palace last August! The next couple pages will moreorless have more backgrounds based off of personal ref pics that I will give Uma when we reach them, but this obviously isn't even the "meat" of this scene. I'm super excited that we're inching closer and closer to the big payoff for Chapter 1!

At least you can still eat at a buffet in your version of Las Vegas, Val. >>

I hope everyone's trying to stay positive during all this! At least we have comics like this to get us through, so read this, play vidya, and "Listen to Eurobeat" instead of hitting the beaches. ;I

Welp, Val and Frankie have free time now, so they might as well... >>
