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 best-selling graphic novels Aquaman: The Trench, Blackest Night, Green Lantern: The Sinestro Corps War, Justice League: Origin, Superman: Brainiac and Batman: Earth One which hit number one 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 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. Ethan Van Sciver has been drawing comics and comic book characters since he was four years old. Back then, DC wouldn't return his phone calls. Now he's working with the best writer, inker, colorist, and editorial team in the business. Persistence is key. At home, Ethan likes to watch terrible old movies, listen to surf music, and play Hot Wheels with his son, Hunter. He blames his expanding waistline on the fabulous gourmet cooking of his wife, Sharis, but admits it's also probably due to a lot of long workdays putting more lines on Sinestro's face and eating cookies.
Darwyn Cooke was an Eisner Award-winning cartoonist and animator. After spending several years as a magazine art director and graphic designer, Cooke switched careers and began working in animation, where he contributed to such shows as Batman: The Animated Series, Superman: The Animated Series, and Men in Black: The Series. DC Comics then approached Cooke to write and illustrate Batman: Ego, which Cooke had pitched unsuccessfully several years earlier. The critical success of the title led to the relaunch of the Catwoman series with writer Ed Brubaker. Cooke then spent several years writing and drawing the ambitious epic The New Frontier. He was also the writer/artist of Before Watchmen: Minutemen and co-writer of Before Watchmen: Silk Spectre.
