Crossovers We Want To See: Jenny Sparks & Baby New Year “Happy F&%#ing New Year”
Written by Warren Ellis, art by Rankin & Bass
When Santa Claus can’t find Rudolph to help find Baby New Year he turns to the next best thing: Jenny Sparks, Spirit of the 20th Century. Now it’s up to the chain-smoking, electricity-wielding Authority member to save the next year, which isn’t something she’s too thrilled about as you might imagine. When she discovers that Baby New Year ran away because people made fun of his giant ears, she tears through his home town, wreaking havoc before the two of them sit in a dark, dank bar and get sloshed. Baby New Year wakes up in a pile of his own excrement the next day exactly where he’s needed to become the spirit of the next year.
