Say, why don't we meet the creative team for all 5 issues of the Geek-Girl ongoing - ? ...
"I'm Sam Johnson, the British creator/writer of Geek-Girl. I have a Masters in Creative Writing for Film & TV and have been working in comics for over ten years. Among this work, I created Cabra Cini: Voodoo Junkie Hitwoman, a character who had a strip annually in the Halloween issue of H!M Comics' IF-X anthology, and will be coming into the Geek-Girl ongoing series in the future. I have self-published two The Almighties one-shots (a comedy super-team co-created with Mike Gagnon); released a 4-issue Geek-Girl Mini-Series through publisher Markosia monthly from Nov 2016, ran a successful Kickstarter for its TPB, and then for the first four issues of the ongoing series, which are now collected for this Kickstarter in the Crime War TPB.
"My favorite comic and biggest influence is Grant Morrison's bizarre run on Doom Patrol, which has helped inspire a number of weird and wonderful creations that, now we're ongoing, I am going to be bringing to the pages of Geek-Girl. Weirdness such as The Hall of Diamonds, the Rat Fink and Groovejet: The Living Party are all in GG's future, as well as the aforementioned Cabra Cini."

Geek-Girl's letterer Paul McLaren started off drawing comics as a kid, with his school friend and fellow Scotsman Mark Millar (Kick-Ass, Kingsman, Secret Service) - though went on to have a career in the police. He left the Police Service to work in the Middle East as an Explosive Detection Dog Handler in the private security industry but then (as you do) got back into the comic scene in 2008, when he lettered a small 6 page project called "Camouflage" written by Martin Conaghan (Fallen Heroes), later lettering Martin's Graphic Novel Burke and Hare.
He now works on a number of projects for various publishers, and his most recent have been comics for the Unseen Shadows Universe,(www.unseenshadows.net) and a Graphic Novel about the life of Aleister Crowley.
Geek-Girl #5's cover is by Sun Khamunaki, a comic cover artist & illustrator from Victoria BC Canada known for her fine art inspired style. Her works have graced the covers of Coffin Comics' Lady Death, Rothic, Monsterella, and various Zenescope titles including Oz and Van Helsing. www.sunkhamunaki.com
