Paul Jenkins’ Sidekick #1 (of 5)
*** 1/2 (out of five)
What would it be like to be the sidekick to the world’s most powerful hero (who happens to be one of the world’s greatest buffoons)?
That’s the complex life of Eddie Edison, AKA Superior Boy, and his relationship with the dimwitted Mister Excellent in Paul Jenkins’ Sidekick.
While Eddie quickly proves he’s the brains of the operation and even gets the girl (Mister Excellent’s wife, at that), he’s still broke and underappreciated and starts looking for something better.
But after auditioning to be the faithful assistant to three other major heroes, Eddie is shocked to hear that they all accept!
Sidekick is a twisted, fun and funny look at the high price of helping save the day.
