Has you can see later on he looses his British flag logo from jumper and sheild and is replaced with a lightning bolt and his power is not Brit power But Silicon chip power!!! The character didn't last long...shame!
I won't speculate why the changes happened...I'll leave that to you...
15th Jan 1972
Love the different angles used in the story...must try and get some more of these...
The last one 1st Sept 1973
I love the writing on this last one...so clever...my kind of humour..I love him complaining its the last one!
The 70's Topper had some surreal writing and characters...

This last ever Sparky book before it joined Topper book the next year...this had lots of reprints...But very welcome to see... there was one new element and is throughout the book Brainless. He is even on the cover drawn by John Geering.
This character who was never in the comic of Sparky which ended in 1977 is brand new for this book. He has the look of Frank Spencer about him! I love this character as a kid and used to draw my own cartoon version of a cowboy with sleeves too long and hat large covering his eyes.
Quite a strong joke if you take it too serious today..

I use your photo and will draw it on High Quality The Langton watercolour A4 paper and using Faber Castell black pencil.
Commissions in black and white I like to draw close ups of the pets face and body rather than drawing the whole pet.
