Bobby Baines is in high school, which is bad enough. But things go from bad to worse when his hero, Scarlet Knight, dies. Bobby is forced to take up his mantel, becoming the new Scarlet Knight. Only Scarlet Knight never had to deal with eeking out a passing grade in math, keeping his fellow sidekicks in check, or stopping a giant squid from bearing down on his high school and crushing everyone inside. All this while trying to get the girl! It’s going to take a lot more than a cape, sword and fancy watch to fill Scarlet’s Knight’s shoes. After all, Bobby Baines is no super hero, he’s a Sidekick!
Praise for Sidekick
“I can’t recall when I’ve had more fun. Sidekick is full of the kind of secrets you wish super-heroes would get around to talking about. Sungenis has created a fun, exciting superhero world that is just a molecule’s vibration away from DC Comics and his familiarity with every trope and trick of the comics genre shows. Anyone who loves– or even just loved, once– comics has to pick this up.” –Jason Henderson, Alex Van Helsing series
