Sidekicks get a lot of flak, but they are an important partner and ally to any hero. You have your trusty sidekicks like the Robins, Speedy, Bucky, Tonto, but you also have your best pal sidekicks like Jimmy Olson, Foggy Nelson, and Margo Lane. Sidekicks are an essential part whether they help you fight crime or just give you a sounding board. Everyone has their favorite sidekick, and that’s what you’re going tell us about to win the prizes. Three winners will receive a prize pack including

1 signed copy of SIDEKICK by Pab Sungenis, 1 journal, and 1 water bottle

To win all you have to do is tell us who your favorite sidekick is and why. We love all our readers, but this contest will be limited to US RESIDENTS ONLY. You can do it three different ways: 1. Tell us in the comments below 2. follow me on Twitter @TheThorverine and drop me a line 3. or email me at [email protected] It’s that simple. It doesn’t have to be an essay, but give us a few sentences.

SIDEKICK: The Misadventures of the New Scarlet Knight, Bobby Baines is in high school, which is bad enough. But things go from bad to worse when his hero, Scarlet Knight, dies. Bobby is forced to take up his mantel and become the new Scarlet Knight. Only Scarlet Knight never had to deal with eeking out a passing grade in math, keeping his fellow sidekicks in check, or stopping a giant squid from bearing down on his high school and crushing everyone inside. All this while trying to get the girl! It’s going to take a lot more than a cape, a sword and fancy watch to fill Scarlet’s Knight’s shoes. After all, Bobby Baines is no superhero, he’s a Sidekick!

About Pab Sungenis: Born in the swamps of Southern New Jersey, Pab Sungenis developed a childhood fascination with cartooning and drew a daily strip for his own amusement for two years before realizing he couldn’t draw. He wound up in broadcasting, worked for numerous stations including WSBU, WOND, WMGM, WSKR, WBNJ, WWBZ, and WKTU. He describes his drawing ability as like that of “a mentally challenged rhinoceros on a Ny-Quil bender”, but thanks to the wonders of photo-manipulation and computer image editing, on February 8, 2006 he found himself creating The New Adventures of Queen Victoria, which has appeared ever since, first on Comicssherpa.com., and now in online syndication with gocomics.com. Pab Sungenis is available for quotes, signings, video or podcast appearances, and all opportunities relative to SIDEKICK: THE MISADVENTURES OF THE NEW SCARLET KNIGHT.
