Exclusive Interview With Geoff Johns!

Babs sits down and talks with DC writer Geoff Johns and asks everything you want to know!


   
 
This past weekend I got to sit down and conduct an exclusive interview with Geoff Johns. Looking back now I think I probably acted like a complete fan-girl, but hey, you would have reacted the same way! I asked all the tough questions; everything from how he came up with the concept for his latest 'Blackest Night' series, to which out of all of the comics he has written, is his favorite. Overall it was an awesome experience, and I was grateful that he was able to give me a few minutes of his time! A big thank you to Isotope Comics in San Francisco for hosting!

good job Babs.Nice questions and everything, too bad you couldn't get anything out of him but that's the way it always is ammirite?Not to mention I would rather the information be revealed as it is planned and laid out in the story.Well most of the info at least but I wouldn't sweat the small stuff...I mean it's a fairly safe bet that the infamous girl in the fridge will return as she should along with other important people throughout Kyle's and everyone's life.Blackest night is as much an assault on the heroes' minds as it is their bodies.

Would you trust a man who has mugged the whole Green Lantern Corp??
@Babs: Nice interview, Babs!  He seems like a charming guy, shame you couldn't use your feminine wiles to get more information out of him!  But it looked like a great place and you looked stunning :)

Thanks a lot everyone! He was awesome. I bought an issue of Blackest Night and got it signed for our next contest, so that should be cool.  :)

That came later. It was actually open bar in a comic book store with drinks inspired by all the different colored lanterns. Very cool indeed. Did I look nervous? I was. LOL.

LOL I thought that too...but then again she's probably just talking loud because of all those fans behind her talking their @sses off. She was very excited though, especially at the beginning!

Sweet interview, Babs, but as Vic Sage would say "You're not asking the right qustions"... I love Geoff Johns' work and everything he writes is brilliant, but he just STONEWALLED you on everything! What a jerk!! LOL

great job on the interview babs

He's probably gagged by his contract, so it's nothing personal :)

He also worked on it for five years. I would be pretty protective too.

Tight interview Babs you held it down. Great questions (all you can do is ask right). I also liked his response to one of them, "Its not about the dead." Badass.

Well Done Babs, I think I would have jumped on him. Kept your composure the best you could have.

If not, you can always try to win the one that I got signed for our next contest :D

Aces, Babs!  What else can I add that already hasn't been said?  You looked real comfortable doing that interview despite all the distractions, and you also looked stunning, as always.  Mr. Johns seems like a real nice person, great to have a writer who is also down to Earth instead of an egotist.

Excellent interview. =)

It's so hard not to geek out whenever you talk to a favorite writer or artist of yours. I know I tried to control myself when I talked to Paul Dini years ago. lol
