Item description for Sidekicks Volume 1: The Transfer Student (Sidekicks) by J. Torres, Takeshi Miyazawa & Takeshi Miyazawa...

Terry Highland isn't like other kids. Or is she? Sure, Terry is the daughter of an ex-superhero sidekick and, yeah, she has powers of her own, too, but when you're a new student at a school like Shuster Academy that's hardly out of the ordinary! Terry has a pyromaniac firestarter in homeroom, a werewolf in Geometry, killer robots in gym - and that's just before lunch! Sounds like a superteen's dream come true, doesn't it? There's just one catch: In order to make the grade at this school, you can't use your powers. So when three new vigilantes burst on to the scene calling themselves "Biff," "Bam," and "Pow," it has the whole student body buzzing and the administration on the lookout for the kids that would dare to break the Academy's most essential rule. Can Terry and her friends solve the mystery without getting caught in the middle? Sidekicks turns the superhero genre on its head, following powered kids who would rather start food fights than fist fights and are more worried about what to do on a Friday night than the next contrived evil plot.

Reviews - What do customers think about Sidekicks Volume 1: The Transfer Student (Sidekicks)?

My only regret is that there wasn't more.  Jan 19, 2006
J. Torres nearly always crafts an entertaining story, but his characters really come to life with Miyazawa on art chores; he captures deftly the exuberance and excitement of the youthful cast and the wonder of a high school devoted to the super-powered. The characters are believable, likeable, and altogether worthwhile. The only real issue as I see it is that Torres sets up the story for further adventures (as none of the key plot points are really resolved) and yet there are no further adventures. It's always painful to see characters and stories left hanging, but especially so when they are worthwhile.
Flat, and Lifeless Art.  May 22, 2005
I picked this up from the library with high expectations. Yet, I was quite dissapointed. The art is a sort of westernized-manga, and though the plot is a good one, I felt that it was quite slow and boring in many parts. It's an entertaining read, but I wouldn't waste any money on it.
