“I’m not a superhero. I’m the @$#%@ who keeps them in line.” —Jenny Sparks

DC announced today a new six-issue DC Black Label comic book miniseries launching in August, Jenny Sparks. The Spirit of the 20th Century returns for the 21st in this action-packed new DC adventure by Eisner Award-winning writer Tom King (Wonder Woman, Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow, The Penguin) and artist Jeff Spokes (WildC.A.T.s, Batman: The Brave and the Bold)!

Jenny Sparks is an epic, thrilling, mind-blowing series in the tradition of Strange Adventures, Mister Miracle, and The Human Target,” said Tom King. “The Spirit of the 20th Century comes to the 21st to try to save five men and women taken hostage by an out-of-control and infinitely powered Captain Atom. Through this lens, we’ll explore the grip of Jenny’s time on our own; how, despite all our desperate prayers, the sins of our past refuse to die away. Featuring astonishing art by Jeff Spokes (seriously, it’s so damn good), Jenny Sparks seeks to set the bar in superhero comics, to show how our heroes can illuminate and define our moment.”

But who is Jenny Sparks? Readers of DC’s WildStorm comics will know that Jenny has always worked outside of the Justice League establishment to find anomalies in the superhero community, is subtle enough to dig into the lies of the most powerful people on the planet, and is strong enough to fight back when these fallen heroes discover who’s digging. She can, if only for a moment, light up the darkest nights. In DC’s new Jenny Sparks, Jenny is the Spirit of the 20th Century, resurrected for the 21st.

Kicking off the action in Jenny Sparks #1, what could four strangers have to do with the fate of the world? Find out as Captain Atom goes rogue, threatening to destroy the planet he once swore to protect. It may take the most unconventional hero of them all to stop him…Jenny Sparks, the one woman tasked with keeping all the heroes in line, no matter the cost. With a snap of her fingers, she’s entered the fray and won’t quit until the job is done!

Jenny Sparks #1, written by King with art and main cover by Spokes and lettering by Clayton Cowles, will have variant covers by Guillem March, Homare, and Saowee (1:25). Jenny Sparks #1 will hit local comic book shop shelves on August 21, 2024. Jenny Sparks is a DC Black Label comic book series and carries an Ages 17+ content descriptor (for mature readers). Each issue of Jenny Sparks will be 40 pages, with 28 story pages per issue.
