In Geiger, the world’s great fear that a nuclear war will decimate the Earth has come true. After 20 years the survivors must wear special suits outside to avoid the radioactive air while they scrounge for resources. But there’s one area in Nevada that is off limits. That’s the home of Tariq Geiger, aka Joe Glow, the Man of Mass Destruction, the Meltdown Man. He is the only one who can be outside without a suit – and he’s not looking for company.
Created by Geoff Johns and Gary Frank, Geiger is a story where the boogeyman is actually the protagonist. When the world was ending he wanted to protect his family and now his solitude is being broken by new factions and their power hungry leaders. This post-apocalyptic story is off to an interesting start.
