WHO: Geoff Johns, DC Entertainment Chief Creative Officer, is one of the most prolific and popular contemporary comic book writers in the world. He is the author of the New York Times bestselling graphic novels BLACKEST NIGHT, GREEN LANTERN: RAGE OF THE RED LANTERNS, GREEN LANTERN: SINESTRO CORPS WAR, JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA: THY KINGDOM COME, SUPERMAN: BRAINIAC and the upcoming BATMAN: EARTH ONE.
Jim Lee, Co-Publisher DC Entertainment, the artist for many of DC Comics’ bestselling comic books and graphic novels, including ALL STAR BATMAN AND ROBIN, THE BOY WONDER, BATMAN: HUSH, and SUPERMAN: FOR TOMORROW. He also serves as the Executive Creative Director for the DC Universe Online (DCUO) massively multiplayer action game from Sony Online Entertainment (SOE).
WHAT: DC Comics made history and set the world on fire when it introduced DC Comics-The New 52 less than a year ago. The new #1 issues introduced readers to a more modern, diverse DC Universe, with some character variations in appearance, origin and age. The launch of Justice League paired Johns and Lee together for the first time to work on some of the most iconic characters in the world including Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman. Now, the release of one of the first collections of the DC Comics-The New 52 series — Justice League Volume One: Origin — gives audiences a great opportunity to jump in at the beginning and explore this new universe.
