It’s Alive’s Drew Ford has turned to Kickstarter to support the project. The campaign, which has already met its fundraising goal of $20,000 with just over three weeks to go, includes two retailer levels. The campaign has added stretch goals that include galleries, a new story, and more. Clocking in at 500+ pages, the Aztec Ace: The Complete Collection hardcover will be delivered to backers in January 2019, with a trade release to follow.
IDW’s It’s Alive imprint was launched in 2016 to save historically important comics (see “New Imprint 'It's Alive!' at IDW”). The imprint has resurrected Trina Robbins’ adaptation of Sax Rohmer’s Dope and Joe R. Lansdale and Sam Glanzman’s Red Range, and a collection of Robbins’ take on Tanith Lee’s The Silver Metal Lover is due later this year (see 'The Silver Metal Lover').
