Official Press Release

It's usually the star superhero that gets all of the attention, but the cosmic powered heavyweights of the world aren't the only good guys slipping on tights to right the wrongs of evildoers. Viper Comics offers readers a comedic look at the lesser loved companion character in this May's Sidekickin , a story that is sure to motivate the masses into cape crusading.

"As a company, we try to stay away from one-shots, but when this book was pitched to us, we just all collectively enjoyed it so much that we had to publish it," states Viper Comics President Jessie Garza. "It has a little bit of everything for everyone and we believe it has the potential to really connect with fans of both superhero stories and those that are into the more indie-type fare."

Created by writer Drew Moss and artist Courtney Huddleston, Sidekickin follows the story of Buddy Neben, sidekick of Major Hero, champion of Bully City. When a giant robot lays waste to City Hall, only Buddy can save the day and that's because Major Hero can't remember his own name, let alone his secret identity and powers.

Sidekickin will ship to stores in May, but an exclusive XX-page preview is available by visiting http://www.vipercomics.com/features/sidekickin.asp.
