Redcoat is a creator-owned series by Geoff Johns and Bryan Hitch spinning out of Geiger from Mad Ghost/Image Comics debuting in the upcoming Geiger 80-Page Special, described as "First, in an extra-sized lead story, Geoff Johns and Bryan Hitch introduce the mysterious man known as Redcoat and reveal his bizarre ties to the American Revolution, the Unknown War, and Geiger himself." Hitch says that it is "the first of a few things on the C/O front in years ahead". And now he has revealed a first look at the character.
He previously told us "Okay you lot. I'm just getting started here. The next 18 months will see more work coming out from me and some terrific writing colleagues than in maybe the last three years combined. I've never been so productive and feel I'm hitting a new peak. Venom in October, the introduction to Redcoat in November, Superman Black Label next year with Mark Waid inked by Kevin Nowlan (yeah, spoilers), Redcoat series and something truly massive I'm not even mentioning. But it's HUGE. Yeah, I've been busy this year. Each new project from Venom onwards is more challenging and exciting than anything I've done in years. Pushing me in new directions even with familiar characters. I couldn't be happier with what's coming this year and next. Hope you'll join us for Venom issue one next month."
