Jim Johnson

Jim is a freelance writer who started writing for CBR in 2013. He had worked previously at Comics Buyer's Guide since 1997 as a writer, reviewer, and online columnist. He has also written for other various comics-related publications and websites, covered comic conventions, and appeared in video commentaries. Occasionally, he's been known to interview creative professionals including comic writers and artists, actors, and musicians. His love of pop culture began with Star Wars, followed by comics shortly thereafter. Forever a rock n roll aficionado, he's also an unapologetic KISS and Trans-Siberian Orchestra fan. And he's always willing to try a new hot sauce or microbrew – especially if someone else is buying. He also fancies himself as a photographer now and again.
