Actuality Press previews long-awaited mini-series for Geek-Girl and Cabra Cini: Voodoo Junkie Hitwoman!
Now on the third printing of its #0 issue, Sam Johnson‘s Geek-Girl – a.k.a. Ruby Kaye, a college ‘It’ Girl who lands a pair of super-tech glasses – has been building the character’s audience ahead of her full color mini-series’ release. The mini’s launch is on the horizon now and creator/writer Johnson felt this was the right time to unveil a preview of it.
For those unfamiliar with Ruby Kaye’s story…
In Geek-Girl #0, Ruby kind of conned brainiac college geek Trevor Goldstein out of the glasses he’d invented [with the intention of using the super powers they endow its wearer with to win over a waitress he’d been crushing on]. She won them in a game of Strip Poker with Trevor and his buddy Jeff, after she and her friend Stacey got them drunk…
Ruby decided she wanted the glasses on a whim, and Ruby Kaye gets what Ruby Kaye wants. What she wasn’t bargaining on, though, is that the glasses’ tech has a glitch. A glitch that’s going to mess with her head and affect her in ways she may not even realize are happening; and this, along with the fact that her best friend Summer is encouraging her to use her powers to become a super-hero, is going to put her in a very dangerous place.
Ruby’s cooler-than-thou clique aren’t too impressed with ‘Geek-Girl’ – but this may turn out to be the least of her worries as she’s forced to step up when her home town of Maine’s big-gun super-heroine, Neon Girl, is hospitalized – right in front of Ruby – by an enigmatic new female super-villain the media christen ‘Lightning Storm’.
As well as Geek-Girl, Actuality Press #1 features preview pages for the already-available The Almighties #1 – which sees the enigmatic White Out amassing a comedic team of heroes: comprising the arrogant, armored Maxi-Tron; former-downtrodden-housewife-turned-swingin’-super-heroine Ms. F; borderline-psychopath/former-Black-Ops-agent Mason; cocky British punk rocker/werewolf Nite Fang; and takeout owner Stefanos(!).
Written by Johnson and illustrated by Carlos Granda, Nathan Ramirez and Eleonora Kortsarz, published by Actuality Press, Actuality Press #1 is out now and available FREE at www.actualitypress.com
