Super Sunday (Part 4) – Kickstarting Comics With ‘Sparrow’ #1
by Olly MacNamee
Sparrow by Calvin Huset is a comic currently being crowdfunded on Kickstarter and features the 18-year old daughter of legendary superheroes embarking on her own career in super-heroics, even if it’s against her parents wishes:
“In Sparrow, we follow the story of an 18 year old high school senior, Alaina Yuen. Alaina is the daughter of legendary heroes Red Falcon and the Sentinel, founding members of a superhero team once known as the Knight Guard. When catastrophe struck, the team found themselves disbanded, the world no longer had heroes. Present day, Alaina finds it increasingly difficult to obey her fathers wishes and ignore her legacy. When a new threat comes to her city, Alaina finds herself in the middle of a dark mystery. She’ll have to go at odds with her father as she becomes Sparrow and fights this new wave of villainy.”
A shred superhero universe Huset has been developing for nearly a decade now, and close to fruition as it’s well past its original funding goal and onto stretch goals including a prequel comic.
