Neat SciFi/Fantasy concept similar to the X-Men. Some people contaminated with a post-WWII alien virus are turned into "Aces" with extraordinary abilities, others become "Jokers" with horrible physical, and sometimes mental, derangements. The series is similar to the "Thieves World" saga in that the short stories are written by a variety of authors, with some character overlap. Great concept, nice execution.
