Here Comes Geek-Girl!


“With great glasses comes great responsibility:” Ruby Kaye is GEEK-GIRL!

New up-and-coming writer Sam Johnson (Cabra Cini, Gold Town and the creator of comics’ über-cheesecake site, FANBABES) and artist Sally Thompson (Little Thoughts) introduce us to the world’s newest, klutziest super-heroine: Ruby Kaye a.k.a. Geek-Girl!

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.

“We’re used to it being the geek that stumbles upon super-powers and becomes cool as a result. Geek-Girl is a flip on that,” says Johnson.

A co-ed studying Public Relations at Acorn Ridge college in Maine, Ruby Kaye is something of an ‘it’ girl. She hangs with the in-crowd, is top of the party-invite list, and has guys queuing up. “But…” Johnson continues, “When she gets ahold of these glasses that she thinks are going to be oh-so-cool, she finds that what they do to her is seen as anything but by her clique--headed by the über-bitchy Karin Carpenter--who thinks Ruby’s lost it, big time.

“This is where Ruby finds out just how flimsy her ‘cool kid’-based friendships are,” says Johnson; “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.”

And Geek-Girl #0 is just the beginning for Ruby Kaye, says Johnson, “How she adapts to her new-found powers and clique-alienating klutziness just might be the making of her--as she learns that with great glasses comes great responsibility, and that geeky can be sexy!”

As well as featuring Geek-Girl’s 12-page introduction, Geek-Girl #0 also includes a 3-page preview of the in-the-works 4-issue Geek-Girl mini-series, illustrated by red hot artist Pablo Martinena. Johnson says, “I’ve been keeping Pablo’s pages to myself until now, and when you guys see them--and his smokin’ variant cover--jaws are gonna drop.”

“I’ve got huge plans for Geek-Girl, and it all begins here, in Geek-Girl #0,” concludes Johnson.

Geek-Girl #0 and Geek-Girl #0 Limited Variant Edition, published by FANBABES, are 16-pages b&w, with color cover, and priced $1.99 and $2.50 respectively.
