Scary Gary (11/30/09)

The green henchman in Scary Gary is one of my favorite characters on the comics page. He’s completely deadpan, which gives his punchlines an added kick. I can’t think of another character jaded enough to spit coffee in the face of a vampire (even a middle-aged, overweight vampire) while still maintaining a disinterested facial expression. But what I really like about the green henchman is how he plays against type. This horned feller is not your typical, bumbling sidekick from the days of yore. He’s a subordinate with an attitude, which I’ll take over your run-of-the-mill Igor any day.
