Starting in August, Flare's electric little sister Olga Gottmann, aka Sparkplug, graduates from being a back-up feature in the pages of Flare, and joins Captain Thunder and Blue Bolt as a headliner in the pages of Heroic Publishing's Champions comic. Sparkplug's first appearance, along with Captain Thunder and Blue Bolt in Champions #39, makes that an all-electric issue.

The Sparkplug adventure in Champions #39 is the classic tale, "Perceptions," by Lou Mougin, Jim Valentino, and Karl Story, in which our electric heroine finds herself having to deal with an unexpected shadow from out of her past.

Meanwhile, Captain Thunder and Blue Bolt resume their quest to uncover the secrets of the Merchants of Menace. For the first time full color, "Blow-Back" is by Roy & Dann Thomas, Howard Simpson, and E. R. Cruz.

Further adventures of Sparkplug are currently scheduled to appear in Champions #42, #43, and in late November or early December in the long-awaited third issue of Sparkplug. Captain Thunder and Blue Bolt are currently scheduled to appear in Champions #40, 42, 43, and in a book-length 44-page epic conclusion to the Merchants of Menace storyline in Champions #44.
