Review: Geek-Girl #1 (2018)

After ‘Little Miss Popular’ Ruby Kaye landed a pair of power-inducing super-tech glasses from her college’s resident brainiac, Ruby alienated the majority of her clique while klutzily trying to demonstrate her newfound abilities – accidentally knocking drinks over their expensive designer dresses. Her BFF Summer James was into what Ruby could do now, though – and pushed her into trying to be a super-hero – jokily giving her the moniker ‘Geek-Girl,’ following her actions.

In a desperate fight to save her city of Maine from mysterious new villain Lightning Storm, Ruby gave her all… and neither she nor Lightning Storm were left standing…

Now, new-crooks-on-the-block The League of Larcenists look to grow in number and capitalize on the hole in law enforcement left by Lightning Storm. And in Ruby’s absence, Summer has picked up the glasses and taken on the mantle of Geek-Girl…

Not a reboot, but there’s a new Geek-Girl fighting crime!
While ruby is in a coma after her last battle, someone else is taking the role of Geek-Girl. This time she’s getting some training, which makes some sort of sense, but things are not going as well as she would hope.
Summer is a different Geek-Girl to Ruby, but there are still some similarities between them. The clumsiness is still there, and the ‘rookie’ mistakes too. We see her first mistake taking down a common crook, misjudging her power and causing some more problems! Next up is a more mental foe, as The Cad is messing with her head – luckily she has a mentor in Pit Bull and he bails her out.
Ruby is still there – being visited by her ‘friends’ – but she’s making no movements and signs of waking up soon.

We also get a new threat – a group of bad guys with some good tech, it looks like they are going to be more of a problem in upcoming issues!
This was a good re-start, suitable for new readers and fans of the previous run. I enjoy the art, and the style of it all, with some fun scenes and well thought out panels!

Geek-Girl #1 is out May 30 from Markosia and available at www.geekgirlcomics.com and Comixology.
