Created and written by Sam Johnson (The Almighties, Cabra Cini: Voodoo Junkie Hitwoman) and illustrated by C Granda (Charmed, Grimm Fairy Tales), Geek-Girl is hot, popular college co-ed Ruby Kaye, who landed a pair of super-power-inducing tech glasses from her college’s resident brainiac on a drunken whim. Since doing so, Ruby – given the moniker ‘Geek-Girl’ by her BFF Summer following her klutzy attempts to demonstrate her newfound powers to their mean girl friends – has grown from shallow ‘It-Girl’ into a true Super-Heroine. Ruby Kaye is… about to no longer be Geek-Girl.
Johnson fills us in on the Jump-On issue Geek-Girl #11 and the new Identity Crisis story arc: “Geek-Girl gets involved in a fight with new villain Identity Thief – who has the power to literallly steal someone’s identity – stealing their memories, looks and – in Ruby’s case – powers!
“Geek-Girl #11 offers readers a unique opportunity to get inside Ruby’s mind as, in pursuit of Identity Thief, the villain taps into it, in their efforts to be Geek-Girl! New readers will get to know the heroine and what she’s been through, and existing readers will get new insights – before everything is ripped away from her!”
But the Super-Heroine is not without support, as Johnson concludes: “Readers will also get acquainted with her would-be Super-Team-mates Tyler and The Minger – just as her BFF Summer sets out to gain her own super-powers and join the team – by hooking up with a shared power corps known as The Hive – who are unlike any heroes or villains Geek-Girl and co. have experienced!”
