About The Book

Collects issues 10, 11, and 12 of the Mercy Sparx the ongoing series, and the entire Year One miniseries.

When Mercy learns that her mother, Faustia, was involved in her abduction from Sheol, suddenly dealing with angels doesn't seem so bad. That's because Mercy doesn't fear anyone the way she does her own mother. If Mercy is to have any hope of stopping her megalomaniacal, bipolar matriarch, she'll have to drudge up some seriously painful memories to pull it off. If she fails, Faustia just may cut off humanity from Heaven (and Hell) forever.

His fame rose in the early 2000s with the formation of Devil’s Due Comics, and the acquisition of the then-dormant G.I. Joe comic book license, which he re-launched in partnership with Image Comics to the top of the charts, and ignited an entire resurgence of 1980s cartoon properties in the comic book space. In addition to dozens of different comic books written in his career, his creator-owned series Mercy Sparx, published by Devil’s Due, was optioned for film by MGM Studios in 2020. Other notable work includes the political tribute (and satire) Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the Freshman Force: New Party, Who Dis? (receiving over 1 billion media impressions around the globe),  the graphic novel  thriller Operation Nemesis, commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide, and the non-fiction prose How to Self-Publish Comics: Not Just Create Them (made required reading at Savannah College of Art & Design). Outside of comics, Blaylock is a recognized expert in the cryptocurrency space, leading to the creation of The Bitcoin Comic Handbook, a guide to understanding the disruptive technology.
