While attempting to find legitimate work after a shaky term as a Super Villain's henchmen, Gary encounters familiar roadblocks in his job hunt. Dead-end jobs are unwilling to hire him because he is either too old or too well educated. Meanwhile, a clandestine consulting firm acquires a controlling stake in struggling tech firm Vimco. Gary has no choice but to return to "henching" as Vimco rolls out a new flagship product, the "Henchbot", which causes his fellow henchmen to fear for their jobs. After being asked to start a new union, Gary contemplates his next move as well as how to pay the bills.

    This issue makes me want to pick up the main Henchmen series, even though the artist is different. After seeing promotional material for the book at a recent convention, it looks like an interesting story about not only Gary but other henchpeople, all with their own gimmicks. I've read all sorts of stories about heroes, villains, sidekicks, and love interests, but this is my first glimpse into the world of those doing grunt work for the "bad guys". Thanks to Ryan Howe for the copy of "I, Henchbot" to review and hope everyone checks it out because it's a good read with a complex central character.The TPB of Henchmen is now available and “I, Henchbot” is already on issue 4.
