Geek Girl #2

Writer: Sam Johnson
Art: Carlos Granda
Color: Chunlin Zhao
Letters: Paul McLaren
Publisher: Markosia Enterprises

Geek Girl #2 finds Summer still fighting crime as Geek Girl, but she receives a call from the original Geek Girl Ruby who has just awoken from a coma. Meanwhile, The League of Larcenists are gathering near Maine and along with some hi-tech weaponry, they’re ready to make a name for themselves in the state of Maine.

Ruby informs Summer that she would like her superpower glasses back and the persona of Geek Girl back as well. She herself does not know if she wants to take up the reins of being a superhero again. Unfortunately, for Summer, she still feels like she has to fight crime. Without superpowers, that puts her in a tough spot.

This comic is on turning out to be a pretty good solid story. Markosia, a new publisher and a new title, I was turned on to Geek Girl about last year and I find it intriguing as far as superhero comics in it being kind of a new idea as opposed to what has already been around. Writer Sam Johnson has written a pretty good story. I appreciated that he is not trying to reinvent the wheel and I am enjoying the story so far.

The art by Carlos Granda it’s actually pretty solid, I like the way the drawings the lines are solid all the way through even on capturing the background imagery with the foreground are very detailed as well. I am a traditionalist, so Chunlin Zhao’s coloring is computerized and I don’t really like that look. Although some panels are really big and the shadowing in a coloring some of it does call for computer art and color, but I think it goes a little bit too far with some of the pages. I’m hoping in the future on comics that they kind of do mix media.

I’m liking the direction where this comic is going and I hope that the story stays pretty solid until we can wrap up this storyline.

I give this comic a 4 out of 5 stars.
