Flying Ace drops in Elsewhere
Set in an off-alien world, two humanoid creatures break free from confinement under the cover of night. Avoiding detection, they manage to escape in the woods nearby. With little chance of survival and a great chance of being caught, the two find themselves rescuing one of America’s greatest female pilots. Hung from her parachute, stuck on a branch, as she lives and breathes, the legendary Amelia Earhart. This in Jay’s newest, Elsewhere issue #1
Story-line (5 of 5)
Truly a remarkable sense of storytelling as Jay Faerber takes one of greatest aerial mysteries of the legendary pilot, Amelia Earhart, into a science fiction comic book series. Amelia’s Moxie attitude will surely be a catalyst for surprising adventures.

Love the way Ron and Sumeyye use the backdrop scenery for every panel. It makes the story go more smoothly and enhance the mood. Also, the coloring used throughout allows the reader what’s good and evil our fateful escapees is fleeing from and going to. Amelia’s character takes after those famous buy war bond posters.
After seeing the a glimpse of what’s to come, cannot imagine what the writers will have in store for Amelia’s character trapped in this alien-like world. Will she find out why she’s there? How will she ever get home? Pretty sure she’ll do what the pages of history made her to be a fearless icon. And what about her new companions, not exactly what she’s use to seeing on Earth. Friend or Foe? Nevertheless, Jay B. is not new to comic book world as he’s co-written the series Copperheads and Secret Identities. Looking forward to reading Elsewhere #2 TBA. Elsewhere is currently out now. Story-line: 5/5 …. Artwork: ⅘ …Overall score: ⅘
