Flyboy finds himself increasingly under the seductive spell of one of the Moonglow Twins, who leaves no memory of her actions the next morning.  Driven by a subconscious memory of their dangerous affair, and by his abject failure to get anyone in his home town to take him seriously, Flyboy decides to leave behind his current heroic identity and reinvent himself as a totally different hero in another part of the country.  But everything that can go wrong, does go wrong, and he must face an even more humiliating defeat before the eyes of the world.

    How can all the right choices by a character go so wrong? This is like a train wreck where you can't look away…And I eagerly await the next disaster. Highest possible recommendation. Read Full Review

    It may be time for a fresh start, but this is still Sidekick, and JMS is not about to let his readers forget that. The humor at the beginning offsets the rough flashback and humiliation of this incredible issue. Read Full Review

    Juggling dual plotlines, writer J. Michael Straczynski skimps on Flyboy's attempt for a new life in order to tell us more about the mysterious woman who visits him, which hurts the story. She's not interesting enough to carry that much of the issue. The dialogue felt rushed, too, with lines that feel more directed at the reader than the characters. Read Full Review
