What’s Up Geek-Girl?

The comic book series Geek-Girl has three big announcements after only one issue: the series now has it’s own website and is being distributed for $2.50 in Regular and Variant Editions. There is also a Digital Edition for $1.00 at www.geekgirlcomics.com.  Quite a bargain – but what’s the series about? Creator and writer of Geek-Girl, Sam Johnson fills us in: Geek-Girl Wants You! “Ruby is used to getting anything she wants, and when she hears about Trevor’s glasses, they become this week’s ‘must have… Manipulating Trevor and his buddy Jeff by their libidos gets them into her hands quite easily – but she’s gonna get a LOT more than she bargained for. The glasses are the latest in a line of Trevor’s attempts to make superpower-endowing specs, but though he believes this one to be successful, while the glasses do grant Ruby super-strength and flight powers, there’s a glitch in them: causing them to mess with Ruby’s brainwaves and make her super-klutzy!  Her cooler-than-thou clique are none too impressed with the effects the glasses have on Ms. Kaye… As Ruby, she hangs with the Maine in-crowd, is top of the party-invite list, and has guys queuing up. As Geek-Girl… not so much.”  “With Great Glasses must also come Great Responsibility… Geek-Girl is going to find herself smack bang in the middle of Maine’s tights ‘n’ capes scene in a way that she’s really not ready for. Both Super-villains and super-heroes will have significant roles to play in the mini-series that Geek-Girl #0 sets up, and the bizarre villain Mr. Mash-Up [who’s introduced in the issue] has a way to hit Geek-Girl very close to home - right where it hurts! “However… How Ruby adapts to her new-found powers and their clique-alienating effects just might be the making of her.”  Comics by Sam Johnson: The Almighties #1 and Geek-Girl #0 Sam Johnson also wrote the Avengers parody, The Almighties. Geek-Girl is published by the same company, Actuality Press. The artwork for Geek-Girl was done by Sally Stone-Thompson     I have not read Geek-Girl #0 yet, but after some hesitation I really enjoyed Sam Johnson’s The Almighties. I expect this series will make me laugh too! Preview: Geek-Girl #0 Variant Cover Geek-Girl #0 Preview Page 1 Geek-Girl #0 Preview Page 5
