“Mary Posa hates her job. She works long hours for little pay, no insurance, and worst of all, no respect. Her coworkers are jerks, and her boss doesn’t appreciate her. He’s also a supervillain. Cursed with a conscience, Mary would give anything to be something other than a henchgirl.”
Henchgirl has long been something of a hidden gem. Originally published by Scout Comics, Kristen Gudsnuk’s tale of a supervillan sidekick dissatisfied with her lot didn’t reach a lot of readers. Trouble was, by the time people caught on to how good it was, they just weren’t able to get hold of any of the early issues any more.
Thankfully Dark Horse are stepping up to the plate with a brand new trade paperback collecting all 11 issues of the Scout Comics series. It’s a 320 page monster of comic-y fun, and we’re so excited we’ve had Kristen do us an exclusive bookplate!
Kristen has provided us with a suitably surreptitious illustration for the bookplate, an edition of 200 signed copies, printed at A6 on high quality card stock.
