Dark Horse Comics is putting together the Henchgirl collection from Kristen Gudsnuk.

Henchgirl is a unique series that subverts the typical superhero trope by telling the story from the perspective of a villain.

Originally published by Scout Comics, Henchgirl depicts the complexities of Mary Posa’s life. The daughter of Crepe City’s most famous superhero couple, Mary deals with the pressure of disappointing her family while avoiding the wrath of Monsieur Butterfly, her supervillain boss. Cursed with a conscience, Mary does everything she can to be something other than a henchgirl, but her plans for freedom always go awry.

Henchgirl creator Kristen Gudsnuk described the parallels between Mary’s life and her own:

“A lot of Henchgirlcomes from my own experiences of being a twenty-something stuck in a dead-end job. Luckily, I turned to comics instead of villainy. I’ve always loved filtering superhero and pop culture tropes through my own cynical perspective.”

The Henchgirl trade goes on sale March 29, 2017 and will be a must have for anyone’s collection.  Will she be coming home with you? Let us know in the comment section below.
