Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Amy Smootster is a high school social outcast who lives her life content in her own world. But it seems that Amy's world is full of strange happenings such as the spontaneous appearances of puddles of water around her and two-sided conversations with insects.

Told with an arresting visual flair, we witness the coming of age of a special young girl who is clothed in awkwardness and oddities. With the help of her guidance counselor, Amy eventually accepts and embraces her abnormal abilities and discovers her place in the world.

Review:

"The creator of The Maxx portrays Zero Girl as some sort of Tim Burton-falling-asleep-in-algebra-class fever dream. With art that ranges from deceptively childish to supremely-detailed, Girl is one of those unique stories that are ideally suited to the comic book form....If you like your comics on the weird side, or if you?re the type of guy to make a lot of '4:20' jokes, you?ll enjoy this." Eric Alt, Maxim Online

Review:

"Zero Girl has a definite charm and identity all its own that is well worth the time to explore....Kieth's idiosyncratic art and writing are really what make this book one of the most unique reads on the shelves today....If you liked Kieth's work on The Maxx, or just love a good brain tickle every now and then, try Zero Girl out." Mike Jozic, Fears Magazine

Review:

"Sam Kieth's work has sensibilities unlike anyone else in mainstream comics. It's almost manga-esque in the different cultural mores it explores....When Sam Kieth is on artwork, it goes without saying that the book is going to be beautiful." Randy Lander, TheFourthRail.com

Synopsis:

A wild, quirky, and truly original project that delighted fans of Sam Kieth's previous work on The Maxx, "Zero Girl" is the story of a high-school misfit coming of age. Young Amy Smootster, weirdness magnet that she is, has never been the most popular girl in school. She can speak to insects and believes that circles are good and squares evil. Awkward and different, she doesn't quite fit into any social circle, and she likes it that way. But strange things seem to happen when Amy is around, the spontaneous appearance of puddles of water for instance, and it has made her the target of relentless bullies. With the aid of a sympathetic guidance counselor whom she develops a mad crush on, Amy explores the meaning of her surreal abilities and discovers her place in the world.
