Batman has Robin. Captain America has Bucky. And Yankee Doodle has Dandy. Being a superhero is hard work, which is why so many comics characters rely on a sidekick- someone to watch the hero's back, help the hero search for clues, or, if nothing else, give the hero someone to talk to. But not every superhero achieves the glory of Batman, and not all sidekicks are as capable as Boy Wonder. In The League of Regrettable Sidekicks, athor Jon Morris shines a hilarious spotlight on forgotten helpers like Thunderfoot (explosive-soled assistant to the Human Bomb), super-pets (like Frosting, polar bear pal of space hero Norge Benson), fan favourites (Rick Jones, sidekick to hald the Marvel Universe), and obscure partners of iconic heroes (Superman Junior's career barely got off the ground).
Jon Morris is a cartoonist and graphic designer and author of The League of Regrettable Superheros and The Legion of Regrettable Supervillians.Since the late 1990s, he's operated the blog Gone and Forgotten, an irreverant in-depth look at the worst, the lowliest, and the most unforunate stories and characters comic books have ever offered.
