Complete Ace Trucking Volume 1

A welcome surprise this week was the discovery of Complete Ace Trucking Volume 1.

The excellent 2000AD back catalogue has been raided in recent times for collections of Judge Dredd, Nemesis the Warlock and Strontium Dog, all of which I am buying, and I was hoping for, but not expecting, Ace Trucking Co. to join this illustrious list.

Ace Trucking Co. was a comedy science fiction series that featured in 2000AD from 1981 to 1986 in something like twenty adventures.

It followed the misadventures of a space trucking company headed by Ace Garp, a pointy-headed alien who spoke in a kind of futuristic CB radio slang.

Ace Trucking was created by writers John Wagner and Alan Grant and artist Massimo Belardinelli, all of whom are recognised masters in their field, which is why they were such good stories and I am so happy to have the chance to read them all again.
