    Stow the devices, Geiger is already reading like an explosive hit. This issue had a strong cliffhanger that should keep readers invested even with the least expensive pizza. Read Full Review

    Johns is an old hand at turning out great comics and while other stories are floundering on their third issue this stepped up a gear in pace, action and emotions. Another solid issue. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Gonzalo M Jun 13, 2021

    Geiger #3 delivers the best issue of the series yet. It's the most informative issue, expanding on the lore of Geiger while also keeping us on the edge of our seats. Geiger is the type of hero comic we didn't know we needed but now can't live without. Read Full Review

    Geiger #3 ticks all the boxes, yet leave me thinking that however hot things were in this issue, they may be positively arctic when compared to what comes next. I can't wait. Read Full Review

    Geiger #3 gives readers a solid flashback for readers to see. It doesn't exactly move the present-day story forward, but it does move the personal story of Geiger himself a little bit. The encounter looks great thanks to Gary Frank's art and Brad Anderson's colors, while Geoff Johns goes for a more emotional experience for Geiger to overcome. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jun 9, 2021

    The action hero loner is a challenging thing to finesse without seeming hopelessly trite. Tariq Geiger narrowly manages something fresh, original, and mysterious beyond the cliche of the action loner with a dark past. Having a couple of kids to look after will likely pull the narrative really far into the cliched direction that will probably end up in some pretty silly territory with the villains that Johns has carved out for the series. In light of this, its nice to know that there are enough panels in the first three issues to make for a really solid and enjoyable one-shot. There have been some excellent moments in the series thus far. Read Full Review
