The city's greatest hero has disappeared and it's up to his teenage sidekick to find him. But Red Raptor isn't prepared for the challenges he must face when he has to go up against their most dangerous foe without his partner.
Sawyer was starting to get a little bored being Red Raptor, the sidekick of The Black Harrier. Since his power allows him to copy anything he watches, he's followed his partner into numerous battles and come through virtually unscathed. In fact, his problems living at home with an alcoholic single mom and being bullied at school are worse than anything he's faced as a crime fighter. And then there's this girl.
For the first time in his life, Red Raptor is forced to test the limits of his abilities and come to grips with what it means to be a hero.

DC and Marvel are cowards
Ayuh, you read that right. The giant corporations that run DC and Marvel own some amazing superheroes but they're afraid to take chances with them because it will upset their cash cows like Batman and Spiderman. And if they ever do take a risk, they retcon it 5 years later. Thankfully, Christopher Valin isnt afraid to take a chance. The characters in Sidekick are similar to the characters in the Batman universe, but they all have a twist that makes them unique. But none of that is what makes this story special. Valin puts us in the head of Red Raptor, a Robin-like sidekick that readers will immediately relate to. And he plays with superhero tropes and turns them on their ear. I really liked this story and can't wait for Book 2. Well done!
