Sidekicks: Kid Superhero Series Review

Authors: Dan Danko and Tom Mason

Guy "Speedy" Martin may be the fastest runner in the world, but he still has to deal with homework, crushing on a hottie, looking cool in spandex, and more! King Justice and the League of Big Justice make fighting crime look easy but being a hero isn't all about mutant powers and saving the day. Dan Danko and Tom Mason have written two Sidekicks books about the frustrating life of a kid superhero in training.


Sidekicks Book Review

The first Sidekicks book is a cool introduction into the super heroic world of Guy "Speedy" Martin and the rest of the League of Big Justice sidekicks. They're all kid superheroes in training who have to deal with homework, curfews, crushes at school, and even super villains! The characters are wacky, the jokes are witty and there are some real kid heroes at work. The Sidekicks series looks like it's off to a flying start.

Sidekicks: Operation Squish Book Review

The first Sidekicks book is awesome but the second falls flat. It's like someone put stupid juice in the water 'cuz all the sidekicks are so dumb it's painful. The first book was cool because the sidekicks were disorganized but managed to work together and make it fun. In Operation Squish, it's like the only reason they're there is to stop Speedy from actually doing anything. It makes for a weak sequel. Here's hoping that the next book can save the series!

Unless you’re drawing out the animal’s death, wasting the potential resources it offers, or it’s an endangered species. Like with white tail deer, they’re already over populated, culling the population a little would help the ecosystem more than it would harm it. Just have respect for the life of the animal. Why isn’t the killing of the animal the issue for you? You say “have respect for the life of the animal” but you can’t do that while simultaneously killing said animal. If someone thinks it’s ok to kill the animal, they must have a difference between the animal and a human that justifies the killing. And if the difference was applied to a human, they must also accept killing them, otherwise it’s a contradiction. With all due respect, I believe it is possible. When I say "have respect for the life of the animal," I mean you should respect the fact that you are potentially taking a life, and that action should be justified. The killing of an animal isn't an issue for me if it is justified and absolutely necessary.  And yes, there is a difference between animals and humans. While we too are animals, we are significantly more developed intellectually and biologically in comparison to the majority of other species. This is a fact, and it's why many of us are so comfortable with killing wild animals-we feel disconnected to them except in certain cases, such as species like dolphins, apes, horses, and dogs. Does that mean we should value the lives of animals any less? No. But while animals are by nature more primal, that doesn't negate the fact that if they have proven to be a legitimate threat to the ecosystem and/or society, there shouldn't be an issue with killing them (ex. rabid animals beyond help). This isn't solely limited to animals either, you can see it in our own human society in many ways. For instance, our society executes people who have committed atrocities of the highest level, but we still value human life.

    Hi! If you're reading this, could you please type in: photo:6446529 but add [ to the beginning and ] to the end (no spaces)? Thank you! This is an image embed test, if you're curious (seeing if anyone can use images that I upload around the forums) not sure where this went, so I put it in general :P
