Sideways…caught between a cop and a hard case! Derek’s got the cops in his house when he uncovers an important clue that could crack his mother’s case wide open. Seems the powers that be at Dark Sciences know about his superpowers, and they’ve got the paperwork to prove it. But then metahuman mercenary Bolt crashes the party, puts the kibosh on Derek and gets his hands on the evidence. Bolt takes Derek back to Professor Portefoy, whose plan is straight out of the evil-scientist playbook: drain the Dark Matter energy from Derek to steal his rift powers!

In the wake of his mother’s death, Derek learns that home is where the hell is. Despondent over missing her funeral and shunned by his father because of it, Sideways reunites with his best friend Ernie for some heart-to-heart talk. Her family life is in shambles, too, as Derek learns her folks are divorcing and splitting up the family. The heartbreak prompts them to take a quick jaunt to Paris, where Sideways ends up getting called into action because of a terrorist attack. A hero in France but a pariah at home, Sideways ponders his future-but he may not have much future left, as Dark Star Sciences boss Leto learns he’s back and dispatches super-assassin Bolt to capture him. Maybe stay in Paris for another croissant instead?

Everything’s going sideways for Sideways in the pages of Sideways-and that means trouble for our titular hero. Trapped in the Dark Multiverse with no escape, Derek James comes face to face with this world’s ruler, Perrus. A so-called benevolent dictator, Perrus rules his world with an iron fist and forces its citizens into slavery, so Sideways decides it’s time for a revolt. The revolution proves unsuccessful, but it leads Sideways to a “super” discovery that could save this world and himself.

NYCC 2018: DC Reveals Details on Brian Michael Bendis’ Wonder Comics Imprint including Young Justice!

At New York Comic Con 2018, DC Comics publishers Dan DiDio and Jim Lee hosted a “Meet the Publishers” panel to kick off the show. There was lots of news including the first details of releases from Brian Michael Bendis‘ imprint Wonder Comics, his personal curated line of teen-focused, in-continuity comics. They’re scheduled to debut in early 2019.

The line will be anchored by the return of Impulse (Bart Allen) and Superboy (Conner Kent), teaming up with Robin (Tim Drake) as the nucleus of an all-new Young Justice, which Bendis will write with art by his Action Comics partner in crime, Patrick Gleason. As a tease for his Saturday evening spotlight panel, Bendis also announced the rest of the first wave of titles:

  • Naomi, which Bendis will co-write with David Walker, featuring art by Jamal Campbell
  • Wonder Twins, written by Mark Russell with art by Stephen Byrne
  • Dial H For Hero, an updated take on the Silver Age classic series from the team of writer Sam Humphries and artist Joe Quinones

The Third Giant Batman and Teen Titans is Out Soon at Walmart

On the heels of Tom King and Andy Kubert’s debut in the exclusive-to-Walmart Superman 100-page Giant #3, Batman fans of all stripes will get their own dose of superstar talent as issue #3 of the Batman 100-page Giant ships to stores, featuring part one of an original 12-part story, “Batman Universe,” written by Brian Michael Bendis with art by Nick Derington.

When Sideways leads the Seven Soldiers into the Dark Multiverse to find the missing Manhattan Guardian, the whole trip goes sideways (zing!) when our hero gets separated from the group and becomes lost in this nightmarish realm. And just like any petulant teenager, Sideways won’t stop and ask for directions, so now he’s trapped in the land of Perrus, ruled by the Dark Beast and populated by weird Superman-esque creatures, like Porcupine Jimmy Olsen.
