Spoken Sins Geek-Girl Interview

I've done a new interview with Rob Andersin on his Spoken Sins show, talking Geek-Girl vol. 1: Lightning Strikes!, my plans for Geek-Girl beyond this, and the Limited GG Collector's Packs that will be added to the GG Kickstarter soon and will come with FREE Limited Geek-Girl/Harley Quinn Prints - which artist Matt Olson (who did the collection's cover) is currently hard at work on!

Geek-Girl vol.1 available to Pre-Order on Kickstarter!

When 'Little Miss Popular' Ruby Kaye lands a pair of super-tech glasses (invented by brainiac college geek Trevor Goldstein) in a game of Strip Poker, she's granted flight, super-strength, and - due to a flaw in the glasses' programming - super-klutziness!

And this is just the beginning of the changes the glasses will wreak on Ruby...

Created & written by myself, illustrated by Carlos Granda, and published by Markosia, Geek-Girl vol.1: Lightning Strikes! is coming out in August, and Pre-Orders are live on Kickstarter NOW: where you can also Preview the book!

Geek-Girl #4 - all three teasers and soundtrack!?

Mysterious super-villain Lightning Storm came out of nowhere and hospitalized Maine's long-term resident super-heroes, Neon Girl and Pit Bull. Neon Girl tasked new-hero-on-the-block Ruby Kaye a.k.a. Geek-Girl with finding and stopping her. As Lightning Storm's threat escalates, it's time for Ruby to deliver. Ready or not.

Geek-Girl #4 is Out Now, and you can check out the teasers at the links below.

Geek-Girl #4 Teaser #1

Geek-Girl #4 Teaser #2

Geek-Girl #4 Teaser #3

One of the reasons I signed to publisher Markosia is I'm aiming to get a Geek-Girl movie made, and they can help with that, having already had some of their other projects picked up for film/TV.

I've always had Leona Lewis' emotional cover of Snow Patrol's Run in mind for the climax of a Geek-Girl movie, and you can see how that feels if you press play on it here when you get to Page 7 (below) while reading Geek-Girl #4.

The story title for Geek-Girl #4, 'Run', is taken from this song, and it's what Ruby feels like she wants to do, faced with the huge threat of Lightning Storm. But best friend Summer is there for her, routing for her, willing her to be the hero she knows Ruby can - so when you hear the lyrics while reading the comic, think of them from Summer's point of view.

I like the feel of it and I hope you do, too. Let me know what you think. And if you haven't got Geek-Girl #4 yet, it's available in Regular, Variant, Digital and Super-Limited Variant editions here at the Geek-Girl site, along with the other three issues of the Mini-Series.

Doom Patrol #5 Review

*No Spoilers*

It's been a wild ride so far in Gerard Way, Nick Derington and Tamra Bonvillain's Doom Patrol, and this is the issue where the team finally come together (kind of)...

Torminax and The Vectra are torturing and destroying Danny, and using him to produce meat. Now that his comicbook-creation-made-flesh Casey Brinke has got her head around the revelations of who she truly is, she and Danny are out to assemble the Doom Patrol and stop the bad guys, via Casey's ability to drive Danny (now an ambulance) through time!

If all of that sounds 'WTF' to you, you're probably new to the world of my greatest influence, the Grant Morrison-written era of the Doom Patrol, now retooled under DC's Young Animal imprint. For those who read Morrison's era, Doom Patrol #5 has several familiar gems, as robot-with-a-human-brain Cliff Steele and former fighter pilot-housing-radioactive-negative-energy-spirit Larry Trainor make their proper comeback this issue and are reunited with sentient former-transvestite-street-now-ambulance, Danny.

There's joy for long-term fans in the lines spouted by no-nonsense, sweary Cliff (as well as the flamboyant words of Danny) as he and Larry go full force against The Vectra, Casey's Dad Torminax and an evil version of Casey - Cliff and Larry aided by associates including their sometime team-mate, Flex Mentallo, 'Man of Muscle Mystery' - and Danny dispatches Casey through time to prevent things from ever getting to the state they're currently in - 'Dannyland' all but destroyed.

Pros and cons of the issue: the art's great and things are firing on all cylinders with the heroes' characters. The villains aren't as out-there as they could be and the time travel element is impossible to follow; Casey: "But Past-Me is sitting in a prison right now. If she dies, I'll cease to exist, and everyone in Dannyland we're here to rescue won't make it." Danny: "Don't worry about that. Just head into Past-Danny..." But it's all weird fun, there are also some nice interludes featuring feline DP-member-to-be Lotion (the team don't fully assemble this issue) and the team's former leader Niles Caulder, and the ending throws us a curveball tying back into the first issue that promises to take the weird up another notch.

Grant Morrison's Doom Patrol was my favorite comicbook of its time, and Gerard Way's Doom Patrol is my favorite comicbook out now. You can check out a 4-Page Preview of Doom Patrol #5 here!
