Super Sidekicks #1: No Adults Allowed

The first book in New York Times bestselling cartoonist Gavin Aung Than's new graphic novel series for fans of CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS and HILO!

Superheroes have it soooo easy. They don’t have to clean their secret headquarters, wash alien bloodstains out of their costumes, or walk Super Mutt. NO! They leave that for their sidekicks, while they get all the credit.

Well, Junior Justice, aka J.J., has had ENOUGH! He thinks it’s time the sidekicks made a team of their own. Dinomite and Flygirl are ready to join the team, but first they have to prove to the adult superheroes that they’re more than just sidekicks. And once the evil Dr Enok discovers his favorite pet Goo has left him, the world might need saving sooner rather than later. . . .

“Everyone loves an underdog. Super Sidekicks is a WINNER!” —Lincoln Peirce, New York Times bestselling author of the BIG NATE series

“A super side-splitting good time!” —Andrew McDonald and Ben Wood, creators of the Real Pigeons series
