Tuesday's Headlines | Geoff Johns & Gary Frank To Image Comics


Longtime friends and collaborators Geoff Johns and Gary Frank are reuniting for a new creator-owned series at Image Comics titled Geiger.

That's right. Creator-owned. Geoff Johns. Gary Frank. 

Image Comics. 

"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," reads Image Comics' synopsis for the series. "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."

Johns and Frank first worked together on a two-issue arc of Avengers in 2002 thanks to matchmaker/editor Tom Brevoort, and reunited in 2007 for a run on DC's Action Comics. Following that, they worked together on Superman: Secret Origin, Batman: Earth One, portions of DC Universe: Rebirth, and Doomsday Clock.

Johns and Frank, along with colorist Brad Anderson, began on Geiger after the completion of the third volume of Batman: Earth One earlier this year.
