Kind of a cute story about strengths and weaknesses and how dreams don't always live up to our expectations. It's very simple but easily understood. MOstly entertaining more than enriching.

3.5 stars. This is a fun introduction to Nick and his super power (super hearing). A light story that sets up the world and the characters with a focus on how Super Fantastic Guy tends to take all of the credit for Nick's work. There are plenty of ways for this new series to grow in future books. Kids will enjoy this superhero story.

This is a cute comic for elementary age kids. The graphics are awesome. I like the boy/girl friendship. Super Fantastic Guy is engagingly oblivious. I wish that Nick had tried a little more aggressively to stand up for himself, but his revenge is silly and nonharmful. Lots of kids will love this.

Nick the Sidekick is a graphic novel for young juvenile readers. Nick's overly large ears and super hearing make him perfect for super work, but he's not quite ready to be a hero in his own right and he hates superhero cliches. He becomes a super assistant to a superhero who frustratingly takes all the credit for Nick's good ideas. A few crass jokes and strong picture support makes this a good title for reluctant readers not quite ready for Captain  Underpants.

Charming, light-hearted story that's sure to be popular with middle primary students.

I read this with my son named Nick and we thoroughly enjoyed it! The characters are witty and the storyline will appeal to young readers! There were numerous times that we laughed out loud and my son wanted to reread pages so we could laugh again! This little comic was action packed! Nick cannot stand being called a sidekick and he does everything that he can to prove himself!

This was a cute little comic. And some of the parts made me literally LOL. And the meta-awareness of the superhero cliches was kind of fun. 

It was a bit silly, and might be enjoyed more by someone a little younger. I’m thinking maybe mid- to late-elementary? I’ll have to find out what my 10-year-old thinks.

The story of Nick the Sidekick is a lighthearted read that will delight readers of all ages. I like how Nick's tale tells us that it doesn't matter what abilities we have; as long as we have the willpower to achieve our dream, we can make it happen. Also, about Super Fantastic Guy's personality of always taking the credit reminds everyone not to follow his example.
