You, dear reader, are very lucky, because you can now read Sparkneedle from start to (current) finish, all for free right here on WCN. I had to read it a page at a time with my Girlamatic
subscription. But I'm not bitter.
In Sparkneedle, you'll see Spike's trademark flowing brushwork at its most indulgent, her storytelling at its most stripped down (it's a silent comic, after all), and her creativity at its most bizzare (long live the mudmen!). Those are very, very good things. You'll also see the excellent color work of her husband, Matt Sheridan, who is slowly finishing the entire first series (I can't wait to see what the finale looks like in color).
Sparkneedle was proof that Spike knows how to make a smart comic, long before Templar Arizona
. Read the first, and you'll know why the later has everyone watching.
... read it now!
