Vintage Blue Beetle Advertising #4

Sparky the Blue Beetle's kid sidekick! As an adult I'm not sure the addition of the "new partner...Sparkington J. Northrup" would make me rush out to buy an issue of Blue Beetle...that would be like buying Aquaman just read the adventures of Aqualad, or Green Arrow to see Speedy...but I bet it pulled in some kids!


  1. What an awful name...geez, that's awful. No wonder I selectively disremembered his existence. Ugh. Just awful!

  2. If you think that's bad...he was later called "Spunky"...UGH!

  3. There should have been an issue of Booster Gold in which Booster time travels, meets Dan Garret, and has to dress up as Sparky.
