Thanks to his dimension-hopping powers, Derek James is having a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad week. As life-changing secrets are revealed, one missed phone call will set in motion a tragedy so personal for Sideways that no one will see it coming (you've been warned). A can't-miss issue, as Sideways' life continues to go...well, you know.

    Best issue yet in a series that's been very up and down for me so far. I hope to see more of the same in the future. Read Full Review

    Sideways #6 made it that much harder to like Derek, and that's not the direction I feel like this story should be taking. There's tragedy, and then there's tragedy that's the hero's fault because of their neglect. Particularly when the one who suffers is family. Read Full Review

    Sideways continues to drift about in the DC universe. This issue setting the stage for events to come and stories to unfold, this is definitely something worth checking. Read Full Review

    DiDio has given Sideways some real stakes in this issue and shaken up the status quo of a character that needs to break out of the confines of the previous five issues. Read Full Review

    This is a pretty good issue. It might be a turning point for the series and I wish it came sooner. The art is flawed but not bad to look at; I think this story needed Kenneth Rocafort to solidify this issue as great. Read Full Review

    So, just like Spider-Man, Derek now has a major guilt complex over the death of a parent figure. This all felt preordained almost from the first issue, and not only is it a disappointing fridging of an interesting parental figure, but it feels like it'll cast a long pall over the fun vibe that made this one of this line's best series.

    Black Nerd Problems - Chris Aiken Jul 11, 2018

    I still feel like Sideways is a fun new character to have in the DC universe. He's different from a lot of the other caped heroes and big shots in the way that he's just a kid doing the hero thing on his own. That's why I'm a bit disappointed in where the issue ends. For a hero that is different, his story deserves moments that are less disappointing. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Keith OneShot Jul 11, 2018

    I felt like this issue does a good job at setting up a new mystery and motivation that will interest fans of the series and with the introduction of new powers and character growth on full display, we learned that there's still a few more angles to see Sideways. Read Full Review

    Predictable, not well-dialogued and kind of dull, but I found some enjoyment in the art. Read Full Review

    I was promised Rocafort on the art duties, but Di Giandomenico will do, even if it means it will not be even half as good. Anyways, it's a very good issue, which will probably end up being the turning point in the series. The feeling that something terrible is about to happen keeps going through the whole book and when it finally happens, it really stuns you.

    Wow I was definitely not expecting that twist at the end. I've enjoyed this series so far it hasn't really blown me until this issue. It was great and really well paced. Had me on the edge of my seat to the very end. This is definitely a game changer and I'm really intrigued where this will take the main character and the series as a whole.

    I was following Sideways closely initially and then totally fell off when I lost issue #6. I found it underneath my couch. I'm happy I can continue reviewing the series now, but sad that issue #6 is so dower.

    It's blatantly obvious by the cover what happens in this issue. The tagline says "A secret revealed and a tragedy strikes". My initial thought from reading the tagline and looking at the cover was that Sideways secret was going to be revealed to his parents and that either 1 or both of them were going to die.

    Two out of 3 ain't bad.

    Justin Jordan and Dan Didio started with an interesting premise but lost it fast with the politics and pushing the justified hatred narrative that is the drug of the moron masses.

    It is sad they had 4 solid issues and the last 2 have just been atrocious garbage.

    Maybe one Dan will realize that the Dark Knight is one comic story, there can be others.

    Maybe Justin Jordan will grow up one day and be a professional.
