Spotlight: The Misadventures of Spring-Heeled Jack
The Misadventures of Spring-Heeled Jack follows the adventures of the eponymous hero as well as his friends and co-conspirators, Tina Biscuit (clever and sneaky) and Hyde, the gentle, sophisticated beast.
Set in Victorian (or ‘olden days’) London, Issue 1 introduced us to these characters and their mission to help the poorest and re-distribute wealth in their own unique and hopefully hilarious ways.
With two issues of these misadventures out now, I had already read the first issue (see above) and then I was able to get the second issue of this series at MCM Comic Con London.
The Misadventures of Spring-Heeled Jack contains some excellent humour and is really on my level. I have found myself smiling all the way through these stories.
With an excellent cast of characters, this is a fun set of reading for all ages. The stories are well told and are a lot of fun. Tom Sparke's art is excellent, with a really good cartoony feel, with some fun scenes and expressions.
If you are looking for some misdeeds and fun, then Spring-Heeled Jack is the way to go.
