12:00-12:45 – Geoff Johns Spotlight
Since the beginning of his creative career, Geoff 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. He has worked on numerous other titles including The Flash, Aquaman, and Justice Society of America.
In addition, he has worked in television – the critically-acclaimed Stargirl TV series, which he created and ran, as well as various films including Wonder Woman (as executive producer), Wonder Woman 1984 (also co-writer), Aquaman (also story), and Shazam! (executive producer), which was based on his graphic novel.
Come hear about all the titles to which he has contributed, including his recently launched creator-owned series Geiger for Image Comics centering around a mysterious radioactive family man named Tariq Geiger, and his own company, Mad Ghost.
