We finally get to see Alfred's dad for the first time! :D

So, when I was writing the script, I subconsciously had J.K. Simmons' voice in my head as I was working on Gordon's dialogue. I kinda imagined him looking sorta like Gordon Freeman from Half-Life as I was getting a better grasp of his quirks (which you will see, in due time), and I've thought about him looking more like Tenzin from Legend of Korra, but he would've looked ridiculous with that kind of facial hair. Hopefully, the salt-and-pepper look on his hair will give him a more distinct look!

I wonder if you're starting to piece together why his son has a spat with his father?



The next page is gonna be super exciting because 1. You'll get to see what the main base of operations for ACES looks like (and it's based on a fairly forgotten attraction), and 2. We're REALLY starting to get into the "meat" of this chapter! Wanna know what ACES is? What their purpose is beyond what you can see, based on the title itself? What the history behind the organization is? You're gonna find out, soon enough!

Now I can divulge on ACES HQ, now that you can see it in full!

So, when I first started conceiving the ideas that would ultimately become ACES, back in August 2018, I was trying to think of how I could make Las Vegas the perfect setting; I knew I wanted there to be a secret HQ in a similar vein to Moonlit Brew's PXS, but trying to figure out how to implement one in a city full of tourist attractions would make it very difficult to make it similar to the Seattle Municipal Tower.

Then I remembered there used to be a long-defunct attraction at Caesar's Palace called Caesar's Magical Empire; it was this cheesy magic and dinner show they had, back when Las Vegas was trying to appeal to families in the 90's. There's a music venue where it stands now, but I thought to myself, "What if the attraction just sat abandoned for so long, the FBI repurposed it into this top-secret headquarters that's hidden in plain sight?"

Don't ask why I remember this place; I think it has to do with the fact that when I was 6-7, me and my sister were creeped out by the catacomb/crypt theming that it had when we went to Vegas for the first time.... that I could remember, anyway.

I guess you could say this comic is an amalgamation of all the things I really liked throughout my life, all rolled up into what you see here!
