"Aces High" was a short lived comic book series published by EC Comics in 1955 as part of its "New Direction" line. The bi-monthly comic was published by Bill Gaines. It lasted a total of five issues before being cancelled, along with EC's other New Direction comics.

"Aces High" was dedicated to tales of air combat and front line service of Allied airmen during World War I and World War II. Many of the stories were in an anti-war vein.

Contributors to "Aces High" include George Evans, Wally Wood, Jack Davis and Bernie Krigstein.

"Aces High" was reprinted as part of Russ Cochran's Complete EC Library in 1988.
