LOS ANGELES 04/09/2024 — Image Comics is pleased to announce that the wildly successful Ghost Machine Day launches have all sold out instantly at the distributor level. Geiger #1 by Geoff Johns and Gary Frank (Doomsday Clock), Redcoat #1 by Johns and Bryan Hitch (JLA), and Rook: Exodus #1 by Johns and Jason Fabok (Batman: Three Jokers) are all being rushed back to print this week in order to keep up with rapid-fire reorder activity.

“We are thrilled with the response Ghost Machine has received since our announcement at New York Comic-Con, culminating in last week’s launch of our first three titles Geiger, Redcoat, and Rook: Exodus," said the Ghost Machine creators in a joint statement. "If one title succeeds we all succeed together as a group, so this is extra special. As different as our characters are, we are committed to delivering the best books each month and we believe the readers and retailers recognized the quality and long-term storytelling vision of our books and spread the word to make this happen. Thank you to Image Comics, Lunar, and all our partners and supporters!”

Geiger #1 returns readers to the nuclear wasteland of the bestselling Geiger, this time for an all-new, ongoing series starring the violent and unpredictable Glowing Man! Leaving his home behind, Tariq Geiger now walks the radioactive roads of the former United States with his two-headed wolf Barney. But as his enemies doggedly pursue him, Geiger discovers salvation from the unlikeliest of foes. But what secrets does this potential ally hold that could help Geiger? And exactly how many people are after The Glowing Man… and why?

In Redcoat #1, readers meet Simon Pure, the newest UNNAMED hero. A British redcoat and all-around rogue, Simon mysteriously became immortal in 1776 after a run-in with the clandestine cabal known as the Founding Fathers, which included George Washington, John Hancock, and many other prominent American Revolutionary War leaders. Since that fateful day, Simon has led a life of adventure and avarice, rubbing elbows (and sometimes fists) with many of history’s most renowned figures, including his nemesis Benedict Arnold, Albert Einstein, Annie Oakley, and many more. One thing they all agree on: they never want to see him again! But what are the true origins and extent of Simon’s power and the mysterious organization behind them? And how has it secretly shaped America and the world? Simon’s on a quest to find out!

In Rook: Exodus #1, the celebrated team behind the smash hit Batman: Three Jokers, reunite for an all-new science fiction series! Hundreds of years from now, the man known as Rook was once a simple farmer who fled the crumbling Earth for a new life on the planet Exodus; a terraformed planet where all of nature, including its imported animal population, was completely controlled by humans called Wardens. But when Exodus’s world engine failed, the Wardens’ power fell into the wrong hands, creating chaos and mass evacuation…for those who could afford it. The rest, like Rook, must scavenge for an escape vessel as the war for control of what’s left of Exodus begins.
