Henchgirl
Henchgirl | Various
2 posts | 4 read | 4 to read
Mary Posa hates her job. She works long hours for little pay, no insurance, and worst of all, no respect. Her co-workers are jerks and her boss doesn't appreciate her. He's also a supervillain. And her parents... well, they're the most famous superhero couple in Crepe City, along with her sister. Cursed with a conscience, Mary would give anything to be something other than a Henchgirl, but no matter what she does her plans always seem to go awry. "There's a lot of humor in Henchgirl which is its strong suit."--Comic Bastards "Henchgirl is not about delivering slam-bang super-hero action, but it is a perfect comic for people who are familiar with standard super-hero tropes and like seeing those turned around and examined from some new angles for comedic effect."--Comic Spectrum "Henchgirl is lovely and endearing but funny and clever and the same time."-Girls Like Comics "It's a terribly fun read."--io9 "Gudsnuk is a bold storyteller."--Comic Bastards

I keep thinking of the line from Clueless: "She's a full on Monet! From far away it's fine, but up close a big old mess." Henchgirl isn't a big old mess, but while I love love love the concept of the comic the narrative story line is all over the place. It's occasionally hard to follow plot jumps and the art doesn't work to help the reader. But I love the idea of a person from a superhero family who isn't evil but works for a super-villain.

moranadatter I had a similar reaction. I loved the high concept, but reading it was a frustrating experience. 3y
