Geiger #1 Sells Out Again and Gets a Third Printing

The radioactive enthusiasm for the new series Geiger by Doomsday Clock creative team Geoff Johns and Gary Frank continues to burn through inventory of the debut issue at the distributor level. Image Comics has greenlit a third printing in order to keep up with mounting demand for the series.

Rapid paced pre-order activity from retailers on Geiger #1 triggered a rare pre-sell-out for the series with books shipping to stores already sold out at the distributor. A rush reprint was ordered ahead of the release date to accommodate the spike in demand, but the reorder activity has overtaken the inventory once again as buzz for the new series grows.

Geiger is set in the years after a nuclear war ravaged the planet where 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.

Geiger #1, third printing (Diamond Code FEB219020) will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, May 19.

Review: Geiger #1

Geiger #1

Geiger #1 kicks off the high-profile indie series from Geoff Johns and Gary Frank. The duo previously worked on DC’s Doomsday Clock, a series that overall fell short of expectations. Geiger #1 does the same.

Geiger #1 really should be called “Old Man knock-off”. The series focuses on the myth of a glowing individual out in the desert who survives the irradiated wastes without a radiation suit. We’re taken through the tragedy of a man who lost his family and was caught in a nuclear explosion leading to today.

The problem is, the setup doesn’t really help the story at all. Johns and Frank leave far too many questions that distract from the main story. It also feels like a retread of so many stories before. There just isn’t that originality or spark to make the debut stand out. It’s not bad, it just doesn’t deliver an interesting enough debut.

In Tariq, aka The Meltdown Man, we get an origin that’s been done to death, an individual caught in a nuclear explosion. With his family safely in a shelter, he’s caught outside to experience things along with attackers attempting to take over the shelter from his family. It’s a fine enough start but there’s no attachment at all. These aren’t characters we get to know. There’s little to feel sympathy for what they go through. Some racism is thrown in by the attackers in what I think is an attempt to do that but it falls flat overall. The attack too comes out of nowhere. There’s not a lot of setup, it just happens which causes a distraction. There’s a detachment with the story due to those two things.

Frank’s art is good. Along with Brad Anderson‘s color, the story is nice to look at. But, as presented we get a world that also doesn’t feel one and the same. There’s scavengers in irradiation suits, the Meltdown Man in his superhero gear, and then a kingdom… where they don’t wear suits? It’s all a little odd and doesn’t make a whole lot of sense visually. But, it looks nice. Rob Leigh‘s lettering packs in a lot as Johns scripts tend go dialogue heavy. It’s impressive how much makes it on to some pages and panels without issue. The only thing is one bit of dialogue at the bottom of a panel that feels like it’s cut off by the imaginary border.

Geiger #1 has a lot of good ideas. It just doesn’t present them well. There’s a choppiness to the story and a disconnect that has me not caring about the characters or what happens. It’s concepts without logic or heart. Maybe it comes together a bit more down the line but as is, this is a debut that doesn’t live up to the excitement and hype.

Geiger #1 Sells Out Ahead of Release and Gets a Second Printing

The highly anticipated new series Geiger—by Doomsday Clock creative team Geoff Johns and Gary Frank—will ship to comic book stores sold out. Early demand for the series has depleted the entirety of the debut issue’s print run, tripping the alarm for preemptive second printings of Geiger #1 ahead of its April 7 on sale date.

Reorder activity from retailers on Geiger #1 is multiplying at a breakneck pace. Image has greenlit two variations of the Gieger #1, second printing cover in response. Both will feature art by Frank, but one will feature Geiger’s chartreuse skull, while the Cover B will reveal his cowled face.

Geiger is set in the years after a nuclear war ravaged the planet where 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.

Geiger #1, first printing will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, April 7—grab it from your local comic shop while supplies last.

Geiger #1, second printing Cover A (Diamond Code FEB219018) and Geiger #1, second printing Cover B 1:25 incentive (Diamond Code FEB219019) will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, April 28.

A Glow in the Dark variant of Geiger #1 (FEB210013) will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, April 21.
