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...

    Infinite Earths - J.D. Jr. Jun 7, 2018

    Quirky and charming, the debut issue of Geek-Girl stands out as something truly unique against the literal landslide of superhero comic books. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - pharoahmiles Jun 23, 2018

    Overall, a fun take on the superhero genre, that is both tongue in cheek and a serious addition to the superhero mythos. The story by Sam Johnson is action packed and well developed. The art by Carlos Granda is breathtaking. Altogether, an excellent introduction to a new superhero. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Wayne Hall Oct 31, 2016

    It's taken some time for Sam to get the team together, but I think he's done very well in making this issue sparkle and be worth your hard-earned quatloos. It's important to me that the women aren't just "men with (female appendages)," as some like to say. They're people and yet still believable, and I look forward to following the adventures of Ruby, her friends and foes in the months ahead. Geek-Girl puts the human back in super-human.

    Geek-O-Rama - Rashida Jan 29, 2019

    Sam Johnson's story is unique in the heroes have interesting issues to deal with besides saving the city. It is almost like they do it because it needs to get done or they wouldn't otherwise. The dialogue between the characters are great, it is not bogged down with phrases you wouldn't hear in everyday ordinary conversations. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Leroy Douresseaux Jun 6, 2018

    Sam Johnson's story is a bit odd. Ruby Kaye wants to be just-another-girl and a superhero at the same time, but seems socially awkward. The enjoyable part of the story is watching Ruby work around her conflicts and contradictions, and there is good dramatic potential in the fact that she is blissfully naive about the fact that she is over her head and out of her league. In Geek-Girl #1, Johnson shows that he has the ability to deliver indie superhero comics that are not only good, but also have the possibility of getting better with each new episode.

    Flickering Myth - Tai Freligh Nov 5, 2016

    While the general themes of this comic book were interesting, I just didn't feel like they pulled it off well enough for me to want to see what happens in the second issue and that's a shame. Read Full Review
