Graphic Novel Spotlight: Sidekicks

by Dan Santat

This book takes an interesting twist on the classic superhero story by making the hero's pets the main characters. Focusing the story on animals gives it appeal for even the youngest graphic novel reader. At the same time it follows the traditional superhero arc for the average fan and has the plot complexity that will appeal to older readers. Add in dynamic illustrations with a cartoony style and rich color palette and this is truly the total graphic novel package. We're already on our second copy with no sign of it's popularity waning.
