Sidekicks by Jack D. Ferraiolo
So this is something I want to share with you, I grabbed this book called Sidekicks by Jack Ferraiolo in a Booksale and instantly loved it. We always talk about the main superheroes but what about their sidekicks? I mean Batman would always have his Robin. Superman has Jimmy Olsen and so on and so forth.
The lives of these side men are rarely tackled which is why Jack Ferraiolo’s offering is a brand new concept. As I am writing this I am reading the pages that are artistically made – actually if you skip though the pages to the end of the book you’ll read that it was art directed, which is cool.
The synopsis of the book goes:
Batman has Robin, Wonder Woman has Wonder Girl, and Phantom Justice has Bright Boy, a.k.a. Scott Hutchinson, an ordinary schoolkid by day and a superfast, superstrong sidekick by night, fighting loyally next to his hero.
But after an embarrassing incident involving his too-tight spandex costume, plus some signs that Phantom Justice may not be the good guy he pretends to be, Scott begins to question his role. With the help of a fellow sidekick, once his nemesis, Scott must decide if growing up means being loyal or stepping boldly to the center of things.
