The Baltimore Comic-Con is happy to announce the return of one of comics’ most iconic comic writers, Geoff Johns for a special Saturday-only appearance. Tickets to the show and the Geoff Johns Fan Event are now available.
Geoff Johns is an award-winning and New York Times bestselling writer, and film and television producer and showrunner, known for re-imagining superheroes and other iconic mythologies, past and present. Johns is best known for his work on properties such as Green Lantern, Aquaman, The Flash, Shazam!, Superman, and Justice Society of America. Since the beginning of his creative career, Johns’ hallmark has been writing heroic and inclusive characters, including teenage hero Courtney Whitmore a.k.a. Stargirl, inspired by his real-life late sister; the Shazam Family, which he re-imagined into a diverse modern family of today; and the first Arab-American Green Lantern, Simon Baz, as well as the explosive, multi-colored Lantern mythology that defined his decade-long bestselling Green Lantern run, among many, many others.
Johns’ best known work in television is the critically-acclaimed Stargirl series, which he created and ran. Some of his film credits include Wonder Woman (executive producer), Wonder Woman 1984 (also co-writer), Aquaman (also story), and Shazam! (executive producer), which was based on his graphic novel.
Born in Detroit to a Lebanese father, Johns was honored with his own permanent section at the Arab American National Museum in Dearborn, Michigan. Most recently, he launched the hit creator-owned series Geiger for Image Comics and his company, Mad Ghost, centering around a mysterious radioactive family man named Tariq Geiger and opening the door to an entire new universe of characters and worlds.
“I love Geoff Johns,” said Marc Nathan, show promoter for the Baltimore Comic-Con. “He is capable of creating iconic characters, sweeping tales, sweet moments, and probably most important of all, the urge by the reader or viewer to see what happens next. His body of work in comics is essential reading for fans of the medium, and he continues to grow in new and fascinating directions. His fans won’t want to miss this limited opportunity to meet him!”
