Ziggy Blumenthal - Sidekicked!
2014.01.26 Garden State Comic Fest, Ledgewood, NJ
Ziggy Blumenthal, along with Cory Harris and Brad Smoley created the brand Fake McCoy Comics
Sidekicked, from Blumehtal and Harris, offers a comic with an unique story line.While the heroes are out of town, saving the town, their sidekicks are taking care of the mundane every day problems. The townspeople see their work and promote them to hero, demoting the heroes to sidekicks. A very interesting and funny concept. The character drawn on the first day cover is Kinetixx, sidekick to Brigadier, who can only fly feet first!
Operation Pajama Pants, a successful 2012 Kickstarter project, the story of a man in search of an ancient magical pair of pajama pants belonging to an Egyptian Sun God. The cover art to this book was drawn by Amanda Connor..
As Blumenthal told me, these books are meant to be fun and they offer some good laughs with the witty dialog by Cory Harris...
Blumenthal also publishes a web-comic called Chris Wnuk: Secret Jew
