Rating: 4/5 – A thinking henchman, how about that?
This book exists because of a successful Kickstarter campaign and is now being offered on a wider basis. It’s available on the web-site linked above for $3.99 as a digital download or you can pre-order the print copy (scheduled for release on Aug 9th) and get the digital download thrown in for free. You can also get a free preview of the comic if you sign up for the mailing list.
What’s a down on his luck guy supposed to do who needs a job and sees an ad offering “Full benefits. Competitive wages. Easy money.” What if that job is as a henchman for a mid-level bad guy “The Head Pin”? Merriment ensues. Gary is that most dangerous of things, a thinking henchman. There’s apparently never been one before.
This is a situation comedy comic, so just roll with the set-up and appreciate the quirky, witty narration and situations as they come. My main complaint is that it felt short even though it clocked in at 35 pages. I’m faced with a double-edged sword. I want another issue but I’m not sure how long it will be before we see another issue. A common problem with smaller creator-owned books
