    Default Enemy Ace Comic Question

    With the hundredth anniversary of World War I why didn't DC put a new version of Enemy Ace? They could have done it as a miniseries.
    The Gypsies had no home. The Doors had no bass.

    Does our reality determine our fiction or does our fiction determine our reality?

    Whenever the question comes up about who some mysterious person is or who is behind something the answer will always be Frank Stallone.

    It could have even been a one-shot.

    But DC doesn't like stories about the 20th century. Hell, we didn't even get any WWII comic book specials commemorating the 75th anniversary of D-Day this year, did we?!?

    Enemy Ace has traditionally been viewed as a Joe Kubert character. DC generally left the character alone unless Kubert wanted to do something with him, or he gave permission for another creator to make use of him. Since his death in 2012, DC has been stingy about letting anyone use him outside of the occasional guest shot (which have the side benefit of helping DC retain their copyright on the character).

    DC's newest solicits show one of their new Giant titles is called DC War Giant. Some new material with classic reprints, whatever that means. Hopefully Sgt. Rock stories. Maybe Enemy Ace, too. I'll take it!

    Enemy Ace wasnt a Joe Kubert creation though and in prologue to War Idyll Kubert says he only met George Pratt and saw his work once the book was underway.

    Somewhere online there is an interview with George Pratt where he describes how book was commissioned and it had nothing to do with Kubert at all

    As far as I know, Enemy Ace was created by Kaningher & Kubert. War Idyll was done under a different editorial management. I was talking about more recently. I am sure something will get done with Enemy Ace sooner or later, but I don’t think DC is in any rush to have anyone do anything significant with the character unless it's something really special.
