GEOFF JOHNS AND GARY FRANK RETEAM FOR GEIGER AT IMAGE COMICS

Image Comics has announced a new team-up between writer Geoff Johns and artist Gary Frank in Geiger, coming in April 2021. The dystopian series sounds pretty interesting to start so I'm curious what these two will bring to a creator-owned title like this.

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.

“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.” Geoff Johns said in an interview at Bleeding Cool. “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’s Savage 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 GeigerDoomsday Clocks’s Brad Anderson is bringing his beautiful palette to the book.”

Frank added: “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.”

“At Image, nothing gives us more satisfaction than showcasing extraordinary talent, so publishing new work by the likes of Geoff Johns and Gary Frank is a true event,” said Eric Stephenson, Publisher & Chief Creative Officer at Image Comics, told Bleeding Cool. “There are few writers in modern comics whose names carry the same weight as Geoff’s, and Gary has been one of the industry’s best artists over two decades, so it’s been difficult to contain the excitement we all have over working with them on this incredible new series.”

Geiger #1 is set for release in April 2021.
