Mike Johnson is a comic book author, and a former employee of Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman.

Before being tapped to write the Star Trek prequel 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.

Continuing this trend, Johnson wrote comic book tie-ins to Fringe and Transformers: Prime, as well as episodes of the latter.
