Sparks: An urban fairy tale by Lawrence Marvit

Jo is a lonely auto mechanic. She lives at home with her drunken cop father and zoned out mother. And one day she builds..well not a robot. More the shell of one. And that night a lightning strike brings him to life. Jo eventually names him Galahad and he becomes her closest friend. Even as she struggles to fit in and make friends with other people. But even an artificial man can love.

Or its the story of a beautiful princess trapped by a wicked king and the brave knight who will do anything to save her.

Or maybe both…

Mini Marvels: rock, paper, scissors by Chris Giarrusso

Chris G’s brilliantly adorable series of Marvel characters as children had previously been found scattered throughout various Marvel titles. But this collection gathers them up in one slim $10 volume. Thrill to Spidey and Venom’s paper delivery adventures. Wolverines quest for his favorite cereal. The Human Torch learning a valuable lesson about courtesy. And of course the most perfect adaptation of the World War Hulk story-arc…

Chris G’s all-ages comic never fails to make me laugh. Plus Elephant Steve. The Marvel universe could use more Elephant Steve.
