This week, I talk with Russell Brettholtz, the creator of an excellent comic called Side-Kicked, which was recently released in trade paperback and in individual issues on comixology.com. Russell discusses how a real-life experience led him to create this title, how he brought his team together, and also how this book examines what makes a person a hero and how a sidekick compares to those who take the lead in saving the day. To buy his book, you can order it through your local comics shop, Amazon.com, comixology.com or at the publisher’s website, darbypop.com. Be sure to listen in and discover this terrific tale that’s worth your attention and support!
