Fund Me Friday – Geek-Girl: Crime War

 

There’s a New Geek in Town in the new Geek-Girl Kickstarter!

Created and written by Sam Johnson (The Almighties, Cabra Cini: Voodoo Junkie Hitwoman) and illustrated by Carlos Granda (Pirouette Grimm Fairy Tales), the first Geek-Girl Mini-Series & Kickstarter introduced the world to attractive, popular Maine college co-ed Ruby Kaye – a girl used to getting whatever she wants…

On a drunken whim, Ruby landed a pair of power-inducing super-tech glasses from her college’s resident brainiac; but rather than impressing her friends, Ruby alienated the majority of her clique while klutzily trying to demonstrate her new-found 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 – which climaxed with Ruby stopping super-villain Lightning Storm from taking over their city of Maine but, electrocuted by Lightning Storm in the process, getting left in a coma!

Johnson brings us up to speed for the new Kickstarter: “Summer’s feeling a bit responsible for what happened to Ruby, and has got the super-tech glasses and is trying to fill in for her as ‘Geek-Girl’. Jock super-hero Pit Bull has taken her under his wing with the intention of training her up to go solo – but Summer is having a hard time of it.” Johnson continues, “Lightning Storm did a lot of damage to law enforcement in Maine, which is now badly undermanned, and there’s a crime wave going on.”

And things are about to escalate into a crime war, as a new bunch of villains have entered the scene, looking to make a name for themselves and clean up. Johnson continues, “The League of Larcenists are a quirky bunch of villains lead by Pig Head – a guy whose brain has been fused with a pig’s. The crew are packing serious tech, including blasters and a teleporter, and are pulling bank jobs, with the intention of gaining a reputation and growing in number.

Meanwhile, Ruby’s previously-estranged clique are looking to ingratiate themselves back in with Ruby, now that she’s popular again after saving their city – and they perceive Summer as trying to ride on Ruby’s coat-tails now she’s doing the ‘Geek-Girl thing;’ and as result, they’ve now put her out in the cold. As if that wasn’t enough for the rookie super-heroine to do deal with [Johnson concludes]: enter super-villain The Cad – who has the power to mess with girls’ heads!”

Written by Johnson, illustrated by Carlos Granda and colored by Chunlin Zhao, the Geek-Girl Kickstarter is live now, running up to the end of October. All 4 issues of the Crime War arc are available there, along with the previous Mini-Series and Kickstarter Exclusives, and you can link to it at www.geekgirlcomics.com
