Have you read our review of issues #1 & #2? why the hell not? It’s right here.
Looking to increase their muscle to protect their scrawny necks, our trio of former sidekicks heads to the world of underground fighting to recruit a former sidekick and martial arts prodigy. But then they all get drunk, and it’s a mess, folks. I think these folks might be dummies. But they’re PROBABLY getting closer to solving the mystery. The ACTION MYSTERY THRILLER continues from CHRIS SCHWEIZER and KYLE STARKS!
Writer: Kyle Starks
Terry and the other sidekicks first head to an underground bar to recruit Allison. Terry acts like an asshole and very quickly Allison is able to smack him about until he submits. Seeing her now as an equal they share drinks but Allison quickly becomes drunk as she doesn’t normally drink. The sidekicks share stories about Trigger and how much he’s ruined their lives. They all admit they are desperate to get back on TV and solving the murder, no matter how much they hated Trigger, is a great way to get back in the limelight.
Outside the bar, they are confronted by a biker gang but even drunk Allison wipes the floor with them.
Starks is definitely showing the ugly underbelly of Hollywood with Trigger’s continued pastiche of various actors. The various shows and sidekicks create a world of shows I now want to watch though.
Just remember if anybody calls you a Pussy you tell them they are an elbow!

I’ve been praising the work of Schweizer for the past two issues and he follows Spinal Tap by turning the silliness up to 11 in this issue. The great little touches like the martial arts moves having their names wrapped around the image, the bike gang fight and the drinking session add great little insights into each character.
Rob Guillory’s variant cover with Trigger saluting the readers with the finger is a nice little touch.
As we grow the fellowship of Sidekicks we get to see each flawed character is in their own way just as bad as Trigger. The only saving grace so far is the kick-ass fighting style of Allison, I think she should be the leader next issue.
