Readers of our Barney Google and Snuffy Smith comic strip will remember that Spark Plug's grandson, Li'l Sparky, first appeared in our comic strip back in January of this year. I wrote and illustrated that special week of comics and invited my daughter, Sarah Rose (a graphic designer), to assist me with coloring the strips that week.
Li'l Sparky has definitely been one of the most popular characters that I have created. From the feedback we received, our readers really loved this cute little pony who longs to be a racehorse one day like his famous grandfather. I am pleased to announce that Li'l Sparky returns again for another "run!" He will be featured in a special week of comics beginning on Father's Day, June 20th. And, who knows, his famous grandfather may even make an appearance!
Since we're kicking off this visit by Li'l Sparky on Father's Day, I am happy to say that my daughter Sarah will return to assist me again with the colors. We both hope hope you enjoy this week of comics and look forward to hearing what you think of Li'l Sparky!
