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! :)

I've just recorded a new interview with Rob Andersin at Indie Advocates - it's a really good one where we talk Ruby Kaye and Summer James, The Legion of Larcenists, and hint at what's to come in the Geek-Girl series - plus herald the TV debut of one my favorite comic books and greatest influence, Doom Patrol!

This new group of criminals were introduced in the first issue of the current (now-ongoing) Geek-Girl series, and have been capturing people's imaginations. Let's meet 'em...
The founding members of The League are code-named Billy, Mongo, and Pig Head - their leader - who, along with their getaway driver, started to make a name for themselves using hi-tech blasters and a teleportation device to pull bank jobs...
... and they've been growing in number - menacing robot Chromex among their new recruits, coming on board when they rescued him from Maine's First Lady of super-heroing, Neon Girl.
But all is not well within their ranks...
... Family man Terry has rubbed Pig Head up the wrong way, and the bossman has saddled him with the code name 'Numb Nuts', after one of the other members revealed Terry's wife made him have a vasectomy. He's not happy with Pig Head's actions - and neither is Chromex.
But the League have continued to grow in rep and size, and are now Legion...
Neon Girl has a mad-on to take The Legion down and is pushing Ruby Kaye to get back in the Geek-Girl costume and help her.
What happens when she does? You can find out in Geek-Girl #4, Out Now and available at www.geekgirlcomics.com!

Ruby Kaye, the original Geek-Girl, is back in the costume, and Geek-Girl is now an ongoing series!
In the new, Extra-Sized Geek-Girl #4, The League of Larcenists are now Legion - and after a night on the town with her BFF Summer, Ruby Kaye is 'ready' to take them on - with a hangover!
"Seeing an old heroine back in action and finally seeing some of the members of the Legion of Larcenists be developed a little bit more is a breath of fresh air and an action-packed one at that." Harry Spencer, Geek Vibes Nation.
You can check out a new teaser video for Geek-Girl #4 at YouTube here.
Geek-Girl #4 is available in Regular, Digital...
and polybagged Super-Limited Black Variant editions...
...at Comixology, Indy Planet and IndieGoGo, and you can check out a Preview and links to getting it at those sites here!
