During the events of DARK NIGHTS: METAL, high school junior Derek James accidentally fell through a rift into the dark matter dimension! Now, as Sideways, he can create rifts in midair to leap through dimensions at will! But with that much power comes great liability—and cracks are starting to form in the fabric of the space-time continuum…
Fun new character!
Obviously “Sideways” is very similar to a certain Marvel character, but this was a fun first comic in hopefully many to come.
I think there’s potential
The character does remind one of spider-man, but in opinion of what this comic is doing wrong is focusing too much on trying to relate to a teen who is all about social media. I haven’t seen lots of social-media aware teenagers who also pick up a new comic. The more interesting aspect of this hero was his power and how he can affect the cosmos on a multi-verse scale. He has the potential to bring in resources or information from other worlds back to his own at will. Or at least that’s my opinion on why this character is remotely interesting.
