(written from a Production point of view)
Before being tapped to write the Star Trek preview comic Star Trek: Countdown for IDW Publishing with fellow Orci/Kurtzman employee Tim Jones, his comic resume was limited to work for DC Comics on their Titans and Superman/Batman comics and a story in their 2008 Halloween special. Johnson and Jones subsequently wrote Star Trek: Nero and the Star Trek: The Official Motion Picture Adaptation. Continuing this trend, Johnson wrote comic book tie-ins to Fringe and Transformers: Prime, as well as episodes of the latter.
Johnson writes Star Trek: Ongoing for IDW, tying into the films set in the alternate reality, as well as the Star Trek Into Darkness prequel comic Star Trek: Countdown to Darkness,  and its companion comic Star Trek: Khan. He also consulted on the 2013 video game.
