When 'Little Miss Popular' Ruby Kaye lands a pair of super-tech glasses (invented by brainiac college geek Trevor Goldstein) in a game of Strip Poker, she's granted flight, super-strength, and - due to a flaw in the glasses' programming - super-klutziness! And this is just the beginning of the changes the glasses will wreak on Ruby.
“Geek-Girl has been building up a following, including a large Facebook Group, since the first printing came out,” says creator/writer Sam Johnson (The Almighties, Cabra Cini: Voodoo Junkie Hitwoman), “and things are going to get taken to the next level for Ruby.” Johnson continues, “GG now has her own official model in Lady Larkin ( https://www.facebook.com/larkincosplay84 ) , who features on the new limited photo variant; and things are progressing with the Geek-Girl mini-series - and more work-in-progress is gonna be getting rolled out at the Facebook group as artist Carlos Granda continues his work on it.”
But for those who aren’t already familiar with Geek-Girl, the new printing of Geek-Girl #0 provides the perfect entry point to her universe. Johnson continues, “I have huge plans for GG, and the mini-series will see her thrown headlong into the world of ‘tights and capes,’ but Geek-Girl #0 is where we meet Ruby Kaye, the person – a hot college It Girl who hangs with the cool clique and gets whatever she wants. But when what she wants is the glasses, they’re going to come with a lot more than she bargained for.”
“EVERYTHING changes for Ruby,” says Johnson; “With the effect the glasses have on her, she is gonna find out just how flimsy her ‘cool kid’-based friendships are; and by the end of Geek-Girl #0, she ain’t gonna have many left. Oh, but that’ll be the least of her problems, with who - or WHAT - then shows up!
Geek-Girl #0, written by Sam Johnson, illustrated by Sally Thompson, and published by Actuality Press is available now in Regular and Ltd. Photo Variant editions at www.geekgirlcomics.com
