About the Author:

Geoff Johns is an award-winning writer and one of the most popular contemporary comic book writers today. Johns is the author of The New York Times bestselling graphic novels Aquaman: The Trench, Blackest Night, Green Lantern: Sinestro Corps War, Justice League: Origin, Superman: Brainiac and Batman: Earth One which hit #1 on the bestseller list. He is also known for transforming Green Lantern into one of the most critically and commercially successful franchises in comics.

Johns was born in Detroit and studied media arts, screenwriting, and film at Michigan State University. After moving to Los Angeles, he became an assistant to Richard Donner, director of Superman: The Movie. He and his mentor Donner later co-wrote Superman: Last Son featuring the return of General Zod.

Johns has written for various other media, including episodes of Smallville, Arrow and Adult Swim’s Robot Chicken, for which he was nominated along with his co-writers for an Emmy. He is the Chief Creative Officer of DC Entertainment and resides in Los Angeles, California.

From Booklist:

The danger for superhero collections—for any serialized storytelling, really—is the risk of alienating new readers with complex backstories and plotlines. This volume, serving as both an origin tale for longtime archenemy Professor Zoom and as a precursor to DC’s line-shattering Flashpoint event, runs that risk more than most. If you’re entering in the middle and leaving in the middle, why should you engage and invest? Johns counters this concern with a story that, though heavily entangled in continuity, compellingly focuses on the emotional journey of the Flash as he tries to reconcile with his past and his family while investigating a case of murder by premature aging and the arrival of a doppelgänger from a parallel time line. Meanwhile, Kolins’ always-solid art basks in standout color work that paints the action in crackling reds and yellows and the human end of the story in soft greens, browns, and beiges for an extra layer of emotional texture. A fine, fun example of sci-fi superheroing. Grades 8-12. --Jesse Karp
