Industry heavyweights Geoff Johns (Superman, Green Lantern, Batman: Three Jokers) and Gary Frank (Superman, Supergirl, The Incredible Hulk) of DC’s Doomsday Clock team up with superstar colorist Brad Anderson to bring fans the Geiger deluxe hardcover edition. This stunning oversized hardcover from Ghost Machine will collect Geiger issues #1-6 of the chart-topping ongoing series, never-before-collected selections from Geiger 80-Page Giant #1, over 30 pages of bonus material, and will be published by Image Comics this June.

‘The Unnamed’ universe starts here! Set 25 years from now, a nuclear war has ravaged the planet and 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. His name is Tariq Geiger, whose body has transformed into a living nuclear reactor waiting to explode. And he will do anything to protect his wife and children, sealed inside a fallout shelter and completely cut off from him. But the Warlords of Vegas want Geiger dead and if his family must be released into the toxic soup, so be it.

“I’m excited for people to see Gary’s brilliant artwork in this deluxe edition of the very first volume of Geiger, introducing The Glowing Man and the historical heroes of The Unnamed, as well as collecting the origin of Geiger’s loyal sidekick, the two-headed wolf Barney, and the mysterious Junkyard Joe,” said Johns.

Geiger deluxe hardcover (ISBN: 9781534327474) will be available at local comic book shops on Wednesday, June 5 and independent bookstores, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-a-Million, Indigo, and Waterstones on Tuesday, June 18.
