Publisher Description

Nominated for the 2019 Will Eisner Comic Industry Award for Best Comics-Related Book

More than one hundred of the strangest sidekicks in comics history, complete with backstories, vintage art, and colorful commentary.


This collection affectionately spotlights forgotten helpers like Thunderfoot (explosive-soled assistant to the Human Bomb), super-pets like Frosting (polar bear pal of space hero Norge Benson), fan favorites like Rick Jones (sidekick to half of the Marvel Universe), and obscure partners of iconic heroes (Superman Junior's career barely got off the ground). Included are pernicious profiles of henchmen and minions, the sidekicks of the supervillain world. Casual comics readers and diehard enthusiasts alike will relish the hilarious commentary and vintage art from obscure old comics.
