Dave Johnson & Mark Brooks Cosplay as Samurai Batman & Superman

The infamous comic book veterans Dave Johnson and Mark Brooks appeared at Dragon Con this past weekend in the most impressive outfits to date: samurai superheroes. Shared via Johnson’s Facebook page Johnson donned the Dark Knight samurai costume while Brooks took on Superman. Johnson made the costumes out of Rubbermaid garbage cans years ago for Halloween and decided to wear them since Dragon Con according to him is literally “at his back door.” Looking at these bad-ass samurai I’d say the cosplay was a success.

Dave Johnson is a renowned artist and Eisner Ward winner, currently working on Batman and The Flash comics. Dragon Con is Atlanta’s annual pop culture festival that started in 1987.

Hi! I'm Shaina aka the Jokergurl. I've been studying comics (namely Batman) since I was 12 years old, and possibly even before that. My forte is being up on absolutely everything there is to know about the Caped Crusader, and both the Clown Prince and Princess of Crime. I recently graduated from Southern New Hampshire University with an MA in English and Creative Writing and an MFA in Creative Writing from National University. I am also a Digital Marketing expert. I have a cat Strawberry and a dog Ashes and spend most of my time reading, editing, cosplaying, and gaming on Game of Honor. Have a happy!
