Bio:
By the early 1980s, Joseph Eggleton Johnston III already had a list of film accomplishments that would've satisfied most people. He had a good job as a storyboard artist with Lucas Film, and had been influential in pre-production design on the original Star Wars trilogy, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and the original Battlestar Galactica series. In particular, it was he who finally came up with designs for Boba Fett and Yoda. When he decided to quit in 1983/84 to go travel the world, Lucas gave him another option. Why not, using Lucas' connections, go to USC film school, instead?

Johnston jumped at the opportunity, sweetened as it was by the promise that Lucas would not only pay his way, but keep him on salary part time at Lucas Film. Using the knowledge gained at film school, Johnston then went on to diversify his moviemaking skills. Since the end of the Star Wars original trilogy, Johnston went on to become the director of such films as The Rocketeer, Jumanji and October Sky.


Though he is not principally a comic creator, his long work in production design and now directing have significantly influenced hundreds, if not thousands, of individual issues of comics.
