The Spark is described as: Fifteen years ago, a phenomenon called â€œThe Sparkâ€ created four super-humans who sacrificed themselves to stop a worldwide cataclysm. Now, The Spark has happened again, creating a new generation of heroes. As three heroes emerge to accept their responsibility as protectors of humanity, everyone wonders, whereâ€™s the fourth? Turns out, not everybody wants to be a super-hero. Lucas has been hiding his powers because he has other responsibilities to contend with â€” school, his full-time job to help his mom with the bills and a little sister whoâ€™s more than a handful. But when an alien horde arrives to turnÂ the planet, does Lucas leave his family to save the earth? Whatâ€™s a super-hero to do?
The graphic novel will sell for $13.99 when it hits stores on March 25, 2009.
