Geoff Johns (born 25 Jan 1973 in Detroit, Michigan) is an American comic book writer, best known for his work for DC Comics.

Biography

Early life and career

After graduating from Clarkston High School in 1991 and from Michigan State University in 1995, Johns moved to Los Angeles, California. There he became assistant to film director and producer, Richard Donner.

He began writing for DC Comics with "Star Spangled Comics" #1 (1999) and the related series "Stars and S.T.R.I.P.E.", a book based on the second Star-Spangled Kid and her stepfather, the original version's sidekick, Stripesy. Johns based new Star-Spangled Kid, Courtney Whitmore, on his sister Courtney, who died in the explosion of TWA Flight 800 over Long Island on July 17, 1996.

Johns wrote several comics for Marvel Comics early in his career, including "The Avengers".

DC Comics

In 2000, he succeeded James Robinson as David S. Goyer's co-writer on the title "JSA". Also that year, Johns became the regular writer on the ongoing series "The Flash", ironic as he had a fan letter published in issue 98 of that series in 1995. In 2003, he re-launched the DC comics title "Teen Titans".

Johns was responsible for the return of Hal Jordan in 2005 as the writer of the mini-series and subsequent Green Lantern ongoing title, helming its highly successful storyline Sinestro Corps War. Johns was also the writer of the DC Comics crossover event "Infinite Crisis" beginning in 2005, a sequel to 1985's "Crisis on Infinite Earths." Following that comic book event, Johns was one of four writers - along with Mark Waid, Grant Morrison, and Greg Rucka - behind the landmark 2006-2007 weekly comic title "52". In 2006, Johns reunited with Richard Donner on the Superman title "Action Comics", with Donner co-plotting the series with his former assistant. In August 2007 Johns and cowriter Jeff Katz re-launched the new "Booster Gold" series. At the 2008 San Diego Comic-Con, DC Comics announced that Johns would write and Ethan Van Sciver would draw the miniseries "", scheduled for 2009 and focusing on the return of Barry Allen as the Flash.cite web|url=http://www.newsarama.com/comics/080724-comiccon-flash-rebirth.html|title=SDCC '08 - Johns & Van Sciver Talk Flash: Rebirth|last=Rogers|first=Vaneta|publisher="Newsarama"|date=2008-07-24|accessdate=2008-07-28]

As of 2006, Johns shares a writing studio, The Empath Magic Tree House, with Jeph Loeb and Allan Heinberg. [ [http://www.brokenfrontier.com/lowdown/details.php?id=249 Hautain, Frederik; "Jeph Loeb: When at Marvel - Part II" brokenfrontier.com; October 12, 2005] ] The 2005, "Recruit", an episode of "Smallville", on which Loeb was a writer/producer, featured a villain by the name of Geoff Johns.In 2008 it was announced that he will be a writer in the upcoming PC and PlayStation 3 game DC Universe Online.

Television and film

In 2006, Johns wrote the "Justice League Unlimited" episode "Ancient History", which starred Hawkman, Hawkgirl, Vixen, Shadow-Thief and the John Stewart Green Lantern.

With Goyer, Johns co-wrote the pilot for the Spike TV television series "," which originally aired during the summer of 2006. Johns served as one of the writing staff on the television show during its tenure.

In the fall of 2006, Johns teamed up with Matthew Senreich of "Robot Chicken" fame to write the screenplay for a holiday family-friendly movie titled "Naughty or Nice" for Dimension Films. Johns and Senreich are also billed as directors of the movie, with actor/producer Seth Green set to provide a lead voice as well as serving as voice director on the film.

In 2008, Johns wrote "Legion", the eleventh episode of the eighth season of "Smallville".

Personal life

Johns lives in Los Angeles, where he is good friends with fellow writers and collaborators James Robinson and Sterling Gates. [Venta Rogers and Cliff Biggers. "Planet Stories" Comic Shop News #1108. September 2008]
