About

A comics magazine for kids and adults alike. You’ll read about Monsters, Space Adventures, Alien Planets and an odd Robot Butler named Springworth. A project that will also benefit kids in long-term hospital care by supplying them with comic making kits to keep them from getting bored.

What is this comic all about then?

THE SPARK is an ongoing magazine sized anthology comic for kids. The host is a robot butler called Springworth and he’ll guide you through stories about the  dangers of outer space, monster filled alien planets, battles with alien races and a whole lot more!

In the grand tradition of British comics this series will have stories and characters that young readers will love and ‘older’ kids will latch onto. We also don’t pander, these stories will feature real tension and excitement along with big dollops of humour and some gorgeous art.

Fair Spark Books are a kids comics publisher who work alongside the Little Heroes Charity to supply comic making kits to kids in hospital suffering serious illnesses and undergoing long-term treatment. By pledging to this you’ll be helping out these children.

What can you expect in THE SPARK?

First things first! We have some great talent lined up for the covers on this new series.

Issue 1 cover by Nick Brokenshire

Issue 1 features work by Nick Brokenshire who took a break from his work on the Star Wars Adventures series for IDW Comics has done a cracking cover that will blow your socks off!

The interiors will be a mixture of ongoing five page strips and one-offs. We’ll explore strange worlds with ‘Shadows’ written by Aaron Rackley (Little Heroes Anthology) with pitch perfect art by Dan Harris (The Cosplayer that DOOMED the Earth).

A Panel from 'Shadows'

There’ll be an extra helping of those barbarian fools ‘Gallant and Amos’. A Warrior and his Dragon pal who would have trouble running a bath are back! Rob Barnes supplies all the hi-jinks you’ll need with these two bumbling idiots who I guarantee you’ll fall in love with!

A Panel From 'Gallant & Amos'

There’s exciting space adventure with ‘John Baton - The Final Stand’ where you’ll see in this order, a chase, a battle and a rather big explosion! Written by Aaron Rackley with art by Mike Dabrowski (Little Toe)

A Panel From 'John Baton Chronicles'

‘Monster Spotters Club’ follows the adventures of two kids and their accident prone teacher as they wander crazy alien world ticking off encounters with monsters as they happen. Written by Tony Esmond (‘How to make comics with Springworth’) and art by Vince Hunt (’The Red mask From Mars’).

And much much fun with quizzes and facts.

Not bad for only £3.50!

Who will enjoy THE SPARK?

Whether you are ages 8 to 68 you are going to find something fun and exciting about this new series. Ideal for parents to read along with their kids or to pass into the back seat when you’re on that long and boring road trip!
