Ask Chris #305: Death Of The Sidekick
Q: There's hasn't been a new sidekick in years. What happened to the concept of the sidekick? -- @RedEarth18 A: I'm not sure that sidekicks are really all that in danger of extinct, but I do think you're right to say that sidekicks aren't as prominent as they used to be, and I think there's a reason for that. And a lot of it has to do with how you define the term.
