About this project
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...
Trying to be a super-hero, Ruby Kaye stumbles across a mysterious and extremely dangerous new villain taking down her town's Numero Uno heroine - and is forced to step up and use her powers for more than just accidentally knocking drinks over her friends... Geek-Girl is entering the Super-Hero Big Leagues - whether she's ready or not!
Geek-Girl vol.1: Lightning Strikes! collects Geek-Girl #1-#4, written by Sam Johnson (The Almighties, Cabra Cini: Voodoo Junkie Hitwoman), and illustrated by Carlos Granda (Grimm Fairy Tales, Charmed); published by Markosia.

NEW! 08/10/17: It's the FINAL DAY of the Geek-Girl Kickstarter - But Wait...
...we haven't had a Stretch Goal yet. ;)
I'm really enjoying running my first Kickstarter, its exceeded my expectations and I'm so happy at the love you've shown Ruby Kaye - and for the Final Day I want to give everyone who's backed the book something back while hopefully smashing our Final Target!
Once Geek-Girl artist Carlos Granda has completed the project he's currently illustrating he will be starting work on the second GG Mini-Series... but we already have cover art completed... So, if you order anything on the GG Kickstarter today, or have already ordered anything during the course of the campaign, if we hit $4000 (£3085) by the end of the show at 17:59PM EST (23:59 GMT) today, you'll all get a Limited Print of Cover Art for Geek-Girl vol.2 #1 - illustrated by Carlos, colored by regular GG colorist Chunlin Zhao, and signed by myself - featuring a BIG REVEAL following on from the events of the first Mini-Series (the Print would come sealed in its own packaging as you're gonna need to not see it before you've read the first collection)!
So if you'd like to order anything else, for yourself or as a gift, or maybe have a friend that you know would dig Geek-Girl, here's the link -
- please Share on Facebook, Twitter and anywhere else you like, and let's smash our target and get everyone the Limited Edition Signed Print! :)
