Who will love Flying Sparks?
- Fans of the original Amazing Spider-Man, Stephanie Brown Batgirl, Invincible, and other intensely personal superhero stories.
- People who love comics with deep characterization and real development. CBR.com says Flying Sparks is "the kind of stuff that made me fall in love with early Marvel Comics".
As Meta-Girl considers calling it quits as a superhero, she answers the call to fight an escalating mob war. Meanwhile, her boyfriend, Johnny Benvinuiti, is caught right in the center of the war as he's tapped to become a new crime boss.
Epic battles and intense character drama fire on all cylinders in volume 2 of the Flying Sparks story. More strange powered beings appear, focused on getting revenge on Buxton Technologies. Both Meta-Girl and Johnny find their friends getting far too close to their secret lives as heroes and villains.
Is their relationship worth holding onto? Will they come head to head in battle with one another?

- "It was a fun read with great art and story. I wouldn't hesitate to back it again."

- "A fine example of a modern graphic novel, with twist after twist."
- "This was a fun storyline. I like the twists. A lot of action packed into one small book!"
- "If you miss comics that are full of action, wonder, and romance, pick up Flying Sparks. It's fun and engaging and will make you fall in love with comics again."
New To Flying Sparks?
If you are new to the series, the first graphic novel (Volume 1) sets up the world where Meta-Girl is dating a criminal, Johnny Benvinuti under her secret identity. They become suspicious of each other as each of them hides their secret life from each other.
We have options for you to try out the series with the first issue (22 pages) or the first volume (69 pages) available in several reward tiers. The book is by the same creative team as volume 2 and has 3 chapters of epic superhero battles and heavy personal relationship conflict!
Also within the rewards is our 2nd release in the Flying Sparks universe, Meta-Man Special. This 22-page book delves into the history of Meta-Man and reveals his relationship to our main protagonist, Meta-Girl. It's best read after volume 1, and is available in the reward tiers.
We're raising money because art is expensive and the artists need to get paid and also to cover print and production costs, as well as shipping and the fees from Kickstarter.

Risks and challenges
I've successfully delivered on two crowdfunds for graphic novels: Flying Sparks Volume 1 and The Ember War. When this project launches, all of the art for Flying Sparks is already complete. I do not anticipate any problems. However, if there are any shipping delays or hiccups with the printer, you'll be the first to know. The book will be published by Dark Legion Comics, an imprint of Arkhaven Comics known for its dependability and for delivering dozens of quality books.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
