Geoff Johns and Gary Frank will release a Geiger 80-Page Giant through their publisher Image Comics in November, featuring a variety of creators playing with the characters and world they’ve created in the regular series. It will also include a preview of their next project, Junkyard Joe.
Creators contributing to the oversized issue include Bryan Hitch, Jay Faerber, Sterling Gates, Janet Harvey, Leon Hendrix III, Peter J. Tomasi, Pornsak Pichetshote, Staz Johnson, Joe Prado, Paul Pelletier, Sean Galloway, Peter Snejbjerg, Kelley Jones and Megan Levens.
“A really cool bonus to working on the original Geiger series was getting to see the interpretations of some of our favorite artists on the variant covers,” said Frank. “Now we get the thrill of seeing other artists AND writers bringing these characters to life in new and wonderful ways!”
Johns and Hitch will work together on the book’s main story, which will introduce “the mysterious man known as Redcoat and reveal his bizarre ties to the American Revolution, the Unknown War and Geiger himself.” Additional stories will focus on the Warlords of Las Vegas and Barney, the two-headed dog.
There’s no word yet on when Junkyard Joe will debut, but the 80-page special issue arrives Nov. 24.
