The Nerd-becomes-cool-Superhero trope gets flipped on its head in Geek-Girl
Created and written by Sam Johnson (The Almighties, Cabra Cini: Voodoo Junkie Hitwoman) and illustrated by Carlos Granda (Grimm Fairy Tales, Charmed), in the 4-issue Geek-Girl Mini-Series we meet attractive, popular Maine college coed Ruby Kaye – a girl who is used to getting anything she wants. But when she overhears the resident college brainiac talking about super-tech glasses he's invented and decides she wants them – her whole world gets turned upside down.
When we're introduced to Ruby, she's a girl flying around in a super-hero costume, looking for crime, chatting to her BFF Summer on her cellphone, questioning if she's 'doing it right;' because she's been at this a couple nights now and nothing's happening. And then something does happen. Right in front of Ruby, Neon Girl – Maine's resident big-shot Super-Heroine – is blasted through a billboard by a mysterious new villain.
