In a world where male superheroes and villains tend to be the norm, Gamer Girl & Vixen is a refreshing new comic featuring female supervillains who happen to fall in love with each other. Elizabeth “Liz” Jaczynski, a.k.a. Gamer Girl, is an out and proud lesbian. She is, also, a video game fanatic who creates hardlight hologram weaponry. Bianca Crowley, a.k.a. Vixen, is a closeted lesbian who is living the perfect life only her mother could love. She’s a cheerleader, a sorority girl, and is dating the track star. Both women appear to be your typical college girl but each lives a secret life of crime.
Vixen’s father was a notorious thief and Gamer Girl’s father was a con man. Both women have decided to continue the family business, while donning some pretty sweet costumes that match their personality. The two supervillains meet-cute while running away from campus security. It’s basically love at first sight. A true lesbian experience. According to the Gamer Girl & Vixen Tumblr, “This is a mature love story with all the sex, hijinks, broken hearts and inappropriate cell phone pics that entails.” In addition to Gamer Girl and Vixen, there will family, friends, and significant others that are sure to add drama into the mix.
The masterminds behind this new book are co-creators Kristi McDowell and Sean Ian Mills, with art by Gemma Moody. They wanted to create a comic that is fun and exciting, and along the lines of the brighter, friendlier comics we don’t see too often.
Kristi and Sean plan to launch a Kickstarter campaign in May, to produce a second issue. Be sure to check out the Gamer Girl & Vixen website to keep up to date on the progress of the production and to read the first six pages of the first issue.
Aside from the supercrime and adventure, Gamer Girl & Vixen is a relatable love story. If lighthearted adventure and romance are your forte, then this comic is right up your alley. If not, it’s still worth a read. It has lesbians, crime, and adventure. That’s the perfect formula for a kickass comic.
