This is a comic about the superheroes' sidekicks. When they get tired of being pushed around, getting ignored, and being taken for granted, they organize together and go on strike. Entertaining with a good amount of action. The comic had a good reading pace. Sure enough, the strike works, and the heroes find themselves losing against the villains, realizing they did need their sidekicks. Will they return? The story is colorful with good art, and it does stand alone.

In the end, it was a quick and light read. It is one I can recommend for libraries with graphic novel collections.

4 out of 5 stars.
