What Else The Geek-Girl Team are Up To!


We're heading towards the release of the Geek-Girl: Crime War TPB - collecting issues #1-#4 of the ongoing series on August 26 - but in the meantime, here's what else the GG creative team have going on!:


Geek-Girl #5 (releasing September) cover artist Sun Khamunaki - who will hopefully be doing more GG cover work in the future - will be at Fan Expo Canada next week, August 22-25 with Prints and comics she's worked on for publishers including Zenescope and Coffin Comics.


Geek-Girl colorist Chunlin Zhao is also an artist, and she's at Silicon Valley Comic Con this weekend with her comic Tom 'n' Artie and Prints of her illustrations - and will also be sketching commissions; so if you're at the con, stop by and say 'Hi.' :)


GG artist Carlos Granda has a strip in Megadeth: Death By Design - a giant-sized hardcover graphic novel adapting the songs of Megadeth into comic book form; and this is Out Now and for a limited time available at Amazon with $18.00 discount here!


As for me - as well as scripting and plotting Geek-Girl #6-#8, I've just received the final pencil roughs to edit from artist Eleonora Kortsarz for the third one-shot starring my and Mike Gagnon's comedy super-team The Almighties. And if you're not familiar with the Almighties, you can get a FREE Almighties Digital Preview Comic here! :)

Meet Geek-Girl #5's Cover Artist - Sun Khamunaki!

Hi folks, I'd like to introduce you to the newest member of the Geek-Girl creative team!


Sun Khamunaki's work first caught my eye on a Monsterella Kickstarter last year from Hangman Comics, when I was running the previous Geek-Girl Kickstarter, and right away, I wanted her to do something for Geek-Girl!

Her slate was too full at the time, but I got in early ahead of the new Geek-Girl Kickstarter, and the result is her beautiful cover for the Jump-On issue Geek-Girl #5!

Sun is a comic cover artist & illustrator from Victoria BC Canada known for her fine art inspired style. Her works have graced the covers of Lady Death, Rothic, the aforementioned Monsterella, and various Zenescope titles including Oz and Van Helsing. You can check out more of Sun's gorgeous work at her website: www.sunkhamunaki.com

Here are what were Sun's roughs for potential cover images, before we chose the middle one...


...and here's the finished art!:


This is available on Geek-Girl #5 Regular and Ltd Virgin editions at the Geek-Girl Kickstarter, and you can get to that here!

Doom Patrol is coming back!


I'm very pleased to hear that one of my favorite comics and My Greatest Influence is returning on July 3rd!

Gerard Way's incarnation of the DP is getting a new series in DOOM PATROL: WEIGHT OF THE WORLDS; Way is going to be joined by Jeremy Lambert as co-writer, and a slew of artists will be illustrating the series, starting with James Harvey - to be followed by Doc Shaner, Nick Pitarra, Becky Cloonan (who was involved in Way's original Doom Patrol pitch) and more. Here's the blurb:

Gerard Way and the World’s Strangest Super Heroes return in an all-new series that takes them beyond the borders of time and space! The Doom Patrol will go on an epic road trip around the solar system, facing off against the unusual and bizarre including the fanatical fitness fiends of planet Orbius and the Marathon Eternal. Big changes are coming for these unusual heroes, including Robotman coming to terms with his new life as a human.


I've mentioned loads of times how Grant Morrison's run on Doom Patrol is the biggest influence on my work, but that influence hasn't been all that apparent in Geek-Girl - until now. With the series now ongoing, things are going to get weirder, beginning with the introduction of the morally-dubious Johnny Carlyle in Geek-Girl #3. Johnny's got an offer for Ruby Kaye in Geek-Girl #4 (out now) and that's gonna lead to weirdness, starting in the Extra-Sized Geek-Girl #5, coming to Kickstarter on May 29th - and Previewing in a brand new FREE Geek-Girl Digital Comic out on May 4th, Free Comic Book Day!

Celebrating all of this. I'm going to be running a Geek-Girl/Doom Patrol Viral Giveaway (that will include Doom Patrol: Weight of the Worlds #1) in May - and if you're not already on the Geek-Girl Mailing List, you can join up to get News on both the Giveaway and the new Free Digital GG Comic - here! :)
