a new website and new Variant and Digital editions of her #0 issue out now!
From the Press Release...
After hopelessly crushing on waitress Mariella Sandbach for six months, brainiac college geek Trevor Goldstein has come up with a way to give him the edge over Mariella’s boyfriend and finally win her over; he’s invented super-tech glasses that will make him into a super-hero – and Mariella’s gonna swoon into his arms, ‘cos, “Who wouldn’t, right?”
At least… that’s the plan...
The specs wind up in the scheming hands of hot, popular college chick Ruby Kaye. “Ruby is used to getting anything she wants, and when she hears about Trevor’s glasses, they become this week’s ‘must have,’” says creator/writer Sam Johnson (The Almighties, Cabra Cini: Voodoo Junkie Hitwoman). “Manipulating Trevor and his buddy Jeff by their libidos gets them into her hands quite easily – but she’s gonna get a LOT more than she’s bargained for.”
Johnson continues, “The glasses are the latest in a line of Trevor’s attempts to make superpower-endowing specs, but though he believes this one to be successful, while the glasses do grant Ruby super-strength and flight powers, there’s a glitch in them: causing them to mess with Ruby’s brainwaves and make her super-klutzy.
“Her cooler-than-thou clique are none too impressed with the effects the glasses have on Ms. Kaye…” says Johnson; “with the exception of her best friend Summer. The daughter of a hardcore comicbook geek, Summer is excitable about the idea of Ruby using her newfound powers to fight crime…”
So, not too great for Ruby’s social life, but she’s gonna kick ass as Geek-Girl, right? “Whatever problems the glasses cause Ruby in her social circle, they’re nothing compared to what she’s going to have in store as Geek-Girl,” says Johnson, “and klutziness is just the first of the changes the glasses will wreak on Ruby as she dons a cape and costume and naively enters the world of super-heroes – and super-villains!”
