About

 The Misadventures of Spring-Heeled Jack - Issue 1

Spring-Heeled Jack is a legend of the olden days.  Mysterious and secretive, he seeks out injustice while many others seek him - our springy mercenary is stalked by enemies at every turn.  This is the first comic in a series of comedy comics following his adventures and those of his hilarious friends. 

From the creator of Captain Fishbeard (CaptainFishbeard.com and on WebToon), this is the first in a series of comics featuring the hero, Jack, alongside his friends Tina and Hyde.  Set in Victorian London, Jack embodies a ‘Robin Hood’ style anti-hero who seeks to help his less-well-off friends at the expense of some very wealthy individuals. The police are often on his tail and other interested parties might be too…

Jack is the first creation of Tom Sparke to be used in a longer-form comic and the jokes are packed in tightly in this book!  The pefect all-ages comic for you or for a Christmas gift!

Tom Sparke is an independent  cartoonist and illustrator from Cambridge, UK.
