Acme Index

In 1988, Eclipse started co-publishing, or distributing, or (as they called it in the indicia) “releasing” comics from Acme Comics. Cefn Ridout edited most of these, but they also had an editorial board that I assume like did something. Perhaps edited that board.

Many of these comics were printed in Europe, and many of them are reprints of material already published on the European mainland. So it’s a slightly odd setup where a British editor picks European comics to be (co-)published in the US, but Ridout has pretty good taste, so there’s a few good ones here. I can’t imagine that they did very well commercially in the US, though.
