About the author

Biography of Frank, Gary

Gary Frank was born 1969 in Britain. He began his professional career in 1991, illustrating covers and interior short stories for publications like Doctor Who Magazine and Toxic!. This led to a stint at Marvel UK in 1992, as regular series' artist on Motormouth & Killpower. In 1992, Frank was recruited by Marvel Comics to illustrate covers for The Incredible Hulk, beginning with issue #400. Shortly thereafter, he was hired as the series' ongoing artist.

During his initial time at Marvel, Frank also contributed covers, interiors, and pin-up illustrations for various series, such as X-Men Unlimited, The Sabretooth Special, X-Men Classic, X-Men Prime, and Doctor Strange, Sorcerer Supreme, among others. He also provided covers for Acclaim Comics' Ninjak and Harris Comics' Vampirella. In 1996, Frank moved to DC Comics, where he worked on various loose assignments that included a Birds of Prey one-shot and covers for the mini-series.

The same year, Frank was hired as part of the art team on DC new Supergirl series. Frank has also worked on other series such as Gen, Tom Strong and Top Cow. He has teamed up with author Geoff Johns for such works as The Avengers and Batman Earth One which made The New York Times Best Sellers List for 2012.

Biography of Johns, Geoff

Geoff Johns was born in 1973 in Detroit, Michigan. As a child, Johns and his brother first discovered comics through an old box of comics they found in their grandmother's attic, which included copies of Flash, Superman, Green Lantern, Batman from the 1960s and 1970's. Johns eventually began to patronize a comics shop in Traverse City, recalling that the first new comics he bought were Crisis on Infinite Earth and Flash, as the latter was his favorite character.

As Johns continued collecting comics, he gravitated toward DC Comics and later Vertigo Comics, and also drew comics. After graduating from Clarkston High School in 1991, he studied media arts, screenwriting, film production and film theory at Michigan State University and graduated from Michigan State in 1995. Johns met up with DC Comics personnel Eddie Berganza who invited Johns to tour the DC Comics offices, and offered Johns the opportunity to pitch ideas, which led to Johns pitching Stars and S.T.R.I.P.E., a book based on the second Star-Spangled Kid and her stepfather, to editor Chuck Kim a year later.

John's soon became a regular writer on such series as The Flash and The Avengers United. He also writes for series such as Teen Titans and The Future is Now. His title Earth One made The New York Times Best Seller List for 2012.
