“This wry debut is at once a fanboy’s homage to the history of superhero storytelling in America…”
Raise your hand if you are still dealing with the trauma of Avengers: Infinity War. (Raises hand high, while sobbing.) If you’re looking for something new to mend your heart; then I got the superhero for you: The Astonishing Black Spark. The Black Spark, is a new superhero, that many of you may relate to. When he isn’t a superhero, he’s Donald McDougal; stuck in a dead end job, losing the love of his life and aimlessly going through life. One day, he’s struck by lightning and he is given powers. His journey into heroism isn’t easy and comes at a price.
