    One thought on “Sidekick: Vol. 1”

    1. Sidekick is a twisted tale indeed. As a young man he sees his parents killed by a serial killer. Just as he is about to die-he is rescued by the Red Cowl. But the boy surprises the Red Cowl by being able to fly off and kill the serial killer. Red Cowl impressed takes the boy in to become his partner. The boy becomes Flyboy.Flyboy and the Red Cowl become famous heroes. Beloved by all. Then one day-the Red Cowl is assassinated. Then it all begins to fall apart for Flyboy. It turns out without the [...]

    2. I picked this up at the library without really knowing anything about it. I wanted to try out a superhero type of comic because I've not ever really given them a fair chance, but unfortunately even though I 'got' this is wasn't anywhere near as entertaining and exciting as some of the non-superhero comics I've read. This has an interesting concept as it focuses on a Sidekick called Flyboy who is working with Red Cowl up until his untimely death. After Cowl is gone Flyboy doesn't really know what [...]

    3. 1.5 out of 5Well the concept is pretty cool but the delivery is just awful and don't even get me started on the awful dialog.

    4. If you like your superhero stories more upbeat, then you'll probably want to avoid this. Sidekick is a dark tale about loneliness and rejection. When he is Red Cowl's sidekick, Flyboy is happy and his life is fulfilled. He and Red Cowl are praised for their superhero exploits, and Red Cowl is generous in his own praise of his sidekick. Then Red Cowl is assassinated and Flyboy's life is turned upside down. Suddenly he is blamed for not preventing the assassination, then he is viewed as a lesser s [...]

    5. J. Michael Straczynski - writerTom Mandrake - illustratorI really liked this one. The young man known as Flyboy has only ever known the life of a sidekick. When the hero he has spent his entire life idolizing is taken from him in one brutal moment, how will a man who was never allowed to be anything other than a footnote find order and direction in an unfamiliar and hostile world? A somber and cynical look at the relationship between hero and sidekick, and all the psychological baggage that goes [...]

    6. I normally love JMS's wrk, but I guess you can't be perfect all the time. While this wasn't terrible, it wasn't good either. I'm not sure I'll read the rest of the series, if I ever find it.

    7. The premise has potential, but the execution is uneven and overall I didn't think it went in an interesting direction.

    8. This is another creator owned exploration of a more or less traditionally super-heroic figure gone bad. It's an iteration worth exploring, and there's some real depth to the world and characters here. It smacks of Mark Waid's Irredeemable, but with the "sidekick" twist is definitely its own book. The art is solid, and appropriately dark, and as the story continues it goes as dark or darker than anything Mark did with Irredeemable. In addition with Irredeemable, as I remember it, the source of th [...]

    9. Interesting dark take on the superhero world. Nice art and different plot made this a good read. Recommended.

    10. HmmI thought this was a complete series, but it's just volume one of an ongoing story that ends with a "to be continued." It might be my fault for not realizing that, however. I've long been a fan of Tom Mandrake's art and the darkness he brings to it really fits the story here. The story: Flyboy, the junior sidekick of a super-hero known as the Red Cowl, is left on his own after the Cowl is murdered. He tries to make it on his own, can't, and goes a little crazy (maybe a lot crazy). While Strac [...]

    11. Collects Sidekick issues #1-6This started out good, and then got really good. This story is all about what happens to a sidekick when the hero he followed is killed. Flyboy (Barry Chase), the protagonist of this story, does not take it well, and his life starts to spiral out of control. Mysteries abound, while some truths are uncovered, and by the end of this first volume, Barry's life is unrecognizable from the life he lived before his mentor died. This comic is a little more graphic than some [...]

    12. I didn't see the Volume one on this when I read it - I assumed the entire story would be wrapped up in the volume. And honestly, it kind of felt like it should have been. Instead it drags on. A sidekick finds himself alone when his hero is killed, and he doesn't have the abilities to take his place. It's full of derision and darkness for its character, and is generally a pretty miserable read. The protagonist is at the end of his rope, the world is viciously cynical, and the overarching story, a [...]

    13. This series starts by making you think it's going to be about one thing, only to switch it up on you. That's JMS in a nutshell, though, isn't it? I don't want to give away any spoilers, but based on Straczynski's track record I have no doubt I'll be going back and upping this to a five star review once all is said and done. Of all the current titles being published by Jo's Comics, this one is as close to a "classic" super hero world, but the dark twist makes it something so much more.

    14. The concept of this series is rather simple: what is Batman was kind of a dick, got killed, and Robin turned out to be sort of a klutz. Of course there's more to it, but quite frankly most of the "surprising twists" I saw coming from miles ahead. I'm sticking with it for now, but J. Michael Straczynski better be coming with some significantly better storylines soon.

    15. Someone must have been kicking Mr. Straczynski's puppies, or perhaps he's bitter no one will fund a Babylon 5 movie.This is easily the darkest comic I've read in a LONG time sort of 'What if Batman was killed and Robin had a breakdown?' then it gets REALLY dark.Strangely, I do want to see what happens next though.

    16. A dark tale but an interesting one. I am a major JMS fan so this might be a little biased but I enjoyed his take on seeing someone's life unravel. It certainly isn't a tale of redemption and rebirth but I'm fascinated by Flyboy's journey.

    17. Un héroe atípico. Sidekick nos narra las aventuras de un superhéroe que siempre había sido el compañero de otro, the Red Cowl, el auténtico héroe, pero al morir éste, no sabe qué hacer. Es un Robin sin Batman. Empieza a caer en una espiral negativa que acaba llevándolo al lado oscuro.

    18. Awful. Ugly art, unlikeable characters, lousy plot. You have no reason to root for Flyboy, or any of the characters for that matter. It just fails on all levels.

    19. What a dark story! This one begins on a low note and just keeps plumbing the depths. I like JMS, but this one is depressing. That said, I can't wait to see where it goes next.
