Geoff Johns And Gary Frank Announce ‘Geiger’ From Image Comics
by Olly MacNamee
Geoff Johns and Gary Frank are tag teaming once again after Doomsday Clock for new Image Comics’ series Geiger.
Johns told Bleeding Cool,
“Gary and I have been secretly working away on Geiger since we finished up Doomsday Clock earlier this year and we couldn’t be more excited to be doing our first creator-owned book for Image. Now that we’re miles ahead of the release schedule, we can finally talk about it. Geiger was inspired by the early days of Image when wonderfully all-new, graphic characters like Todd McFarlane’s Spawn, Erik Larsen’sSavage Dragon and so many more were at the forefront of their publishing line. It was such an exciting time as a reader for us, and we’re hoping to tap into that excitement again with the unexpected and unknown with Geiger. Doomsday Clocks’s Brad Anderson is bringing his beautiful palette to the book.”
Well, given that Doomsday Clock did slip to a rather delayed publishing schedule very quickly, it will definitely be aping early Image Comics that’s for sure. Here’s hoping this new series can stay on target.
Here’s the overview of their new book:
Who are the scavengers of a dying earth? Geiger is set in the years since a nuclear war ravaged the planet, desperate outlaws battle for survival in a world of radioactive chaos. Out past the poisoned wasteland lives a man even the Nightcrawlers and Organ People fear. Some name him Joe Glow, others call him The Meltdown Man. But his name… is Geiger.
“It feels like we’ve been assembling this monster in a hidden tower for an age and waiting for the right storm to pass. I think we have something full of heart and horror and humanity and, now that we’re close, I’m hugely excited to see it released into the World.”
Geiger #1 will be available April 2021 from Image Comics.
