Geoff Johns Exclusively DC
By Beth Hannan Rimmels
Geoff Johns, writer of The Flash, co-writer of the hit series JSA and Hawkman, and writer of the upcoming monthly series Teen Titans, has signed a three-year exclusive agreement with DC Comics.
"This is an incredible time to be with DC," said Johns. "The excitement level within the company just keeps building and building - and knowing what their game plan is and where they're heading made it a perfect time to jump on board. I couldn't be happier or more excited to focus my creative energies here. Working with people like Dan DiDio, Peter Tomasi, Eddie Berganza and the rest of the crew - it's always been a pleasure, and they're really kicking into a new gear."
"Between DC's universe of characters," Johns continued, "and the Vertigo and WildStorm imprints, the opportunities within DC are endless. I'll continue to work on JSA, The Flash and Hawkman, and then Teen Titans this summer with Mike McKone. And we've already begun to talk about what's on the slate next!"
"Geoff has quickly become one of the most prolific and creative talents in the industry, and his love of DC's characters shines through in all his work," said Dan DiDio, vice president of editorial at DC Comics. "We look forward to seeing where he takes Teen Titans and other DCU heroes in the future."
