However, there's so much more to adult coloring books than pretty swirly lines and colorful (pun intended) swear words. There is also a whole market of adult coloring books just for geeks. That includes color-your-own comics to coloring books based on some of the hottest geek franchises. Here are some of the best geeky coloring books for those who just want to sit in a quiet corner of the world and color in the lines.
