The Geiger is one of the world’s most popular comic books. People worldwide love reading this children’s classic because it teaches young readers important lessons using interesting characters and clever illustrations. Nevertheless, how much do you know about Geiger? Do you know who created Geiger? What interesting facts about this comic book would you like to know? This article discusses interesting facts about Geiger that you may or may not know:
- It is easier for people to identify with robots than for them to identify with humans. Some of the villains in Geiger featured human-like characteristics, and certain heroes had robot-like qualities. Even though the author’s intent was not to create characters that people could easily relate with, this is what makes Geiger so popular. People can identify with Geiger’s different characters because everyone can relate at least one aspect of their personality to a robot or another human being.
- Robots have feelings, too! Writers often neglect the fact that robots and humans both have feelings. For example, Professor Geiger created a robot with the intent of it to love and respecting him unconditionally. However, this is not how things turned out for the professor. Instead, his son resented him after he treated his robot like a servant rather than treating it with respect and love. Another example is when Ms. Turing told the robots how to survive in the real world and what humans liked and disliked.
- The story, Geiger, created by Geoff Johns, teaches young readers an important lesson about life and love. Many children never understand that they need to respect their elders, especially those who care for them, like parents and teachers. Usually, parents are the ones who teach their children how to behave at home, but this is not always the case. Sometimes, teachers and other school employees need to ensure all students understand what respect means and how they should acquire it.
- Geiger was first published in serial form. Geiger was released chapter by chapter in magazines, newspapers, and other periodicals. Children did not read the entire book at once because it was long enough to fill multiple issues of a magazine or newspaper. Every time Geiger became available again in another magazine, newspaper, or other types of publications, people were eager to get their hands on the next issue so they could learn what was going to happen to the characters next. This made Geiger one of the most popular English language children’s comic books.
- Over time, the story of Geiger has evolved. When Geiger was first published in serial form, it did not have the same qualities today. Because each chapter was released weekly, the story was not edited or revised. As time went on, people began reading each chapter of Geiger in one sitting rather than waiting until the next week for the next chapter. This type of behavior made it difficult to keep the quality of Geiger at its highest standard because they could no longer publish chapters out of order. Because of this, the author was forced to edit certain parts of Geiger not to miss out on anything.
As you read Geiger, keep in mind that there is usually more than what meets the eye. The language and illustration of this children’s comic book may be simple, but it contains a powerful story evolving.
