Jon Del Arroz recently launched his Flying Sparks Vol. 3 crowdfunding campaign on KickStarter.
Flying Sparks Volume 3: Choices is a 72-page fully colored book that stars Chloe Anderson a.k.a. Meta-Girl and Johnny Benvinutti. This third volume will see Meta-Girl caught in the clutches of an evil corporate goon named Peter Buxton while she investigates the Buxton Corporation’s strange plans.

Meanwhile, Johnny finds himself in the middle a of a deadly gang war. He will work to recapture his family’s old territory while also asserting himself as the new don. To top it all off, Johnny and Chloe’s relationship is on the rocks, and he’s going to have to work to win her back.
Del Arroz promises this third volume will reveal a secret identity and change the lives of his main characters. He described the third volume as “the Romeo and Juliet of superheroes.” He adds, “The drama and intensity of volume 3 is off the charts, with deadly secrets revealed–and no turning back for our intrepid protagonists!”
Del Arroz tells me Flying Sparks is part of a “true indie revolution in being able to replace Marvel/DC with regular installments of professional quality story.”
The book is written by Jon Del Arroz and features artwork by Jethro Morales and colors by Sanju Nivangune and Levy Ramirez. There are also multiple covers that you can choose from. The main cover features art work by Julius Abrera and Brett R. Smith.
There is also a Pillow Fight variant cover by Miss Sashi.
