Welcome to our new issue! We’ve got a really special one this month, including the re-launch of Yellow Hearts, complete with a new title! We hope you enjoy Never Heroes as much as we have been during its renewal–Keezy has done an amazing job updating the art and you can see how much she’s grown as a talent. As a bonus, we have the special Onaskellis zine to share with you all!
We’ve also got a special treat from the fantastic creative minds of Emily Compton and Onorobo, The Jackson Lunta Snow Dance Song! They teamed up on the epic novel, “Dusk in Kalevia,” which is a treat, if you haven’t checked it out yet, but now they’ve moved on from Soviet angels to ice hockey romance! We’re so excited!
And speaking of Dusk in Kalevia, it’s the centerpiece of our “Sparkler Ships” box this month. The “Angelic Box” includes the novel, and a variety of terrific bonus stuff along with it, including some postcard prints of Onorobo’s fabulous art, and a download of the 18+ side story The Raven of Leningrad. We were super happy with last month’s Magical Box, so next up in April is the “Mystery Box,” if you’re interested in signing up for all three! Treat yourself. ;-) And Sparkler Members get a discount!
That’s not all that we’ve got going on, either–this month also features new installments of Orange Junk (Bruce runs into some academic trouble!) and Windrose (our heroes run into some musketeer trouble!) which you’re sure to enjoy. Windrose is getting close to its finale, so this is a great time to re-read the series or give it a shot if you haven’t checked it out previously.
There’s been a lot going on behind the scenes on the site, as well, which may not be super obvious, but that will hopefully make your Sparkler experience more seamless and enjoyable. The most exciting piece of which, to me at least, is that you can now sign up to get email updates when new pages come out from your favorite comics! We already post updates on our social media outlets, but there’s nothing like the thrill of when an email pops up telling you that there’s a new page of Knights-Errant or Magical How out. ;-D
Plus, last but not least, Eyugho and our editors discuss the series we all love to hate, and hate to love in this month’s podcast!
Onward and upward!
The Sparkler Team
