Pat Shand Joins Writer Josh Blaylock for Return of Mercy Sparx
Ongoing Series Returns with Issue #13 in Oversized Forty-Page Special from Devil’s Due Comics.
This Winter will see the release of Mercy Sparx issue #13, the long awaited return of the ongoing series, and follow-up to the companion miniseries Mercy Sparx: Year One. Joining creator Josh Blaylock is new co-writer Pat Shand, co-creator of the latest Devil’s Due Comics hit horror title, Little Girl.
Blaylock and Shand will bring to a close the epic story of Mercy’s final showdown with her mother, Faustia. A plot that was carefully teased and unveiled by Blaylock over the last several years.
“I’ve never let anyone else touch Mercy when it comes to our cannon stories,” said Blaylock, “But as picky as I can be about how we portray her personality and character, Pat totally ‘gets’ Mercy Sparx.”
“Mercy Sparx is everything I look for in a comic as a reader, so I’m thrilled to join Josh as co-writer. From Mercy’s cast of unique characters to the unique mythology, we’ve got a lot to explore, and a lot of fun comics to create”
Stay tuned for an announcement on the series artists and specifics on the schedule in weeks to come.
The series will return through a combination of limited, internationally released exclusive retailer editions, Kickstarters, and standard Diamond release throughout North America.
