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

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Jul 11, 2018

    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

    Sequential Planet - Josh O'Farrell Jul 12, 2018

    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

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jul 11, 2018

    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

    Weird Science - Hussein Wasiti Jul 11, 2018

    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

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jul 11, 2018

    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

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jul 17, 2018

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