About the Author
Born in 1973, Geoff Johns is Detroit native who brings a Hollywood sense of storytelling to comics. After working as an assistant to Richard Donner (director of "Lethal Weapon, Superman: The Movie," and many other great films), Geoff has brought his considerable writing talent to comics. One of the most prolific and popular writers in comics today, he is currently writing "JSA, Teen Titans," and "Flash" for DC. Johns' work revitalized "Hawkman" after a checkered history and brought new life into the "JSA" title, featuring many of DC's heroes from the Golden Age. His new version of the "Teen Titans" has been released in repeatedly sold-out issues. Among his upcoming projects is a re-launch of DC's popular "Green Lantern" series.

Praise For The Trench

“Has breathed new life into [Aquaman]…. The series is off to an excellent start with plenty of mystery and action ahead. Anyone that ever hesitated to read a story about ‘the guy who talks to fish,’ should have no second thoughts about picking up Aquaman Volume 1: The Trench.”—Philadelphia Examiner

"Every page drips with humor and all of it is aimed at Aquaman and his considerable character heritage, be it the orange shirt, the power to talk to fish or the second-string super-hero status."—Los Angeles Times Hero Complex

"Fresh."—Entertainment Weekly

 "Actually, this might be [Geoff Johns's] most impressive feat to date. Genius."—USA Today
