Flyboy has learned the truth: his former partner and mentor The Red Cowl faked his death...a discovery that has shattered Barry Chase all the way down to his soul. Allied now with Julia Moonglow, he seeks revenge on the man who he revered and deserted him. But before he can pursue vengeance, he has to get past a new hero in town, sent to reel him in for his recent dangerous behavior. How far will Flyboy go to get past this obstacle...and will he ever be the same afterward?

    Can you handle this? Are you strong enough to watch the rebirth of a hero into something else. It's not pleasant, but once you start you can't put it down. And it's only going to get worse! Thank you, JMS! Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Jul 2, 2014

    Sidekick #7 is a quality release that certainly deserves a spot on your pull-list. The creative team crafts a continuing yarn that's simply full of substance with just enough shock value to keep even the most discerning fanboy or fangirl hooked for more. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    The issue concludes with Barry and Julia finding what it was they were looking for with the aid of their new recruit and then finishes with a catch up on Red Cowl which didnt really add anything to the issue. Read Full Review

    Sidekick started out intriguing, but now it's just clichd, broken-hero fare that's covered better elsewhere. Read Full Review

    This had a dark humor before. Now, it is even more dark and I'm starting to wonder if it wants to be funny anymore. The fact that he names himself Sidekick is utterly ridiculous, so I'm hoping that's a sign that the humor will pick up some more.
