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 now, though – and pushed her into trying to be a super-hero – jokily giving her the moniker ‘Geek-Girl’, following her actions.by Sam Johnson (Author), Carlos Granda (Artist)
In a desperate fight to save her city of Maine from 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 take on the mantle of Geek-Girl…
This is a story of two Geek-Girls. Ruby spends the beginning of this adventure in a coma. A result of her previous adventures. Meanwhile, her friend, Summer, has taken on the role of Geek-Girl. Things don’t go too well for Summer – she’s been training well with Pitbull, but there are still problems. These problems get worse as Ruby wakes up and want the glasses back!
This collection gives us quite a lot of universe building. We get some new heroes and some new villains. ‘Teched up and ready to go, the League of Larceny are well done, with some members making their own feelings felt well.
This collection is an excellent mix of mean girls and superheroes – well told with some nice action moments. New readers should be able to catch up well (although I’d recommend checking out the previous volume!)
Some nice art and designs of the characters too.
