As we showed yesterday over at our parent blog, BOOKSTEVE'S LIBRARY, Sparky was the Blue Beetle's little-remembered sidekick from 1942. Sparkington J. Northrup! What a name! Introduced on the cover of issue 14, a special page inside told the reader that Sparky had been delayed and would debut the following issue. By the time he showed up, though, in the story seen here by longtime journeyman comics artist, Charles M. Quinlan, there was no explanation or origin given. Sparky was just...there. He didn't stay there long, either. But here is, for all intents and purposes, Sparky's debut, from BLUE BEETLE # 15. Enjoy?
