Geoff Johns originally hails from Detroit, Michigan. He attended Michigan State University, where he earned a degree in Media Arts and Film. He began his comics career creating and writing Stars and S.T.R.I.P.E. for DC Comics.

His first comic assignment led to a critically acclaimed run on the The Flash and JSA for DC Comics. Since then, he has quickly become one of the most popular and imaginative writers in comic books today, working on titles including a highly successful re-imagining of Green Lantern, The Flash: Rebirth, Superman: Secret Origin, Action Comics, Adventure Comics, Teen Titans, Justice Society of America, Infinite Crisis and the experimental breakout hit series 52 for DC with Grant Morrison, Greg Rucka and Mark Waid. Geoff received the Wizard Fan Award for Breakout Talent of 2002 and Writer of the Year for 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008 as well as the CBG Writer of the Year 2003 thru 2005 and 2007 and 2008 and CBG Best Comic Book Series for JSA 2001 thru 2005. Geoff penned the acclaimed "Legion" episode of SMALLVILLE. He also served as a writer for the fourth season of ROBOT CHICKEN. Geoff is currently working on film projects with Warner Brothers to be announced soon.

Geoff recently became a New York Times Bestselling author with the graphic novel Superman: Brainiac with art by Gary Frank among many others.

2 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Peter Whitney on June 6, 2012
Format: Hardcover
I was happy that Marvel decided to collect Geoff Johns run on Avengers in hardcover, but I wish that they did it in three volumes instead of four. The reason being is this collection.

The major difference is that this contains Avengers #62 which was originally found in the TBP collection of Avengers: World Trust. It had wonderful art by Gary Frank but just feels like it belongs with Avengers #61.

Then you jump into the three part story that ran through Thor and Iron Man (Avengers #63, Thor #58, Iron Man #64). This where you have the mighty three (Captain America being the third) bickering (again) and being goaded by Doctor Doom. The problem is that you have two extra writers, (Mike Grell, and Dan Jurgens) doing their thing on their separate titles and it just doesn't mesh with Geoff Johns. On the plus side you have the whole story illustrated by Alan Davis which is a huge plus in that it has consistency and it's done by a great artist.

And then you have Avengers #64 which felt like a prologue to Red Zone with beautiful art by Ivan Reis and focuses on the Falcon and Henry Gyrich.

The collection is fine, nothing special, kind of a lull between two major stories, and feels like Marvel just getting that extra little bit of money from us. Like I said, I wish it was done in 3 collections instead of 4. The front cover is not the best (it's actually the cover to Iron Man #64), same with the back cover (which was actually Thor #58). Nice of Marvel to title it an Avengers book with the covers being from titles that aren't Avengers. Truth be told, the only reason I have it is to be a completist... Though I do enjoy Avengers #62, and #64.
