Phillip Kennedy Johnson

Phillip Kennedy Johnson is an Eisner-nominated writer living in the Washington, DC/Baltimore region. His comics work has been published by DC, Marvel, Boom! Studios, Archaia, IDW, Aftershock, and Scout Comics. He is best known for his work on Superman and Action Comics for DC Comics and Alien and Captain America for Marvel Comics and as the co-creator of such comics series as Last Sons of America, Warlords of Appalachia, Kill A Man, Smoketown, and others.

Outside of writing, Johnson has a full-time career as a soldier and musician. As a sergeant first class in the U.S. Army, he regularly tours the continental United States with the U.S. Army Field Band and the Federal Brass of Washington, DC. He previously toured the world with the Glenn Miller Orchestra from 2004–2005, and has performed with the Moscow Ballet, the Dallas Opera, Washington Symphonic Brass, the Lexington Philharmonic, and the Benny Goodman Orchestra. Johnson is an avid student of American art forms, most notably jazz, comic books, and mixed martial arts. He will fight anyone who argues that MMA came from Brazil, and feels that his three names and his penchant for describing himself in the third person give him a gravitas for which all artists should strive.
