Tim Seeley Goes Exclusive with DC Comics and Vertigo

DCENT_Tim SeeleyAfter an incredibly successful San Diego Comic-Con International, DC Entertainment has even more news up their sleeve. The company has announced that writer Tim Seeley has reached an agreement to create content solely for the company’s DC and Vertigo imprints.

Along with co-writer Tom King and artist Mikel Janin, Tim Seeley had folks talking, and excited, by his conversion of Dick Grayson from superhero to globe-trotting super spy in the pages of Grayson from 2014 to 2016. Now teamed with artists Javi Fernandez and Marcus To, Seeley returns the character to his superhero roots in the pages of Nightwing, where the debut story arc finds the hero learning new methods from a new and more ruthless teacher named Raptor, in “Better than Batman.” This October, Seeley will also be delivering a gruesome and stylish return to the 80’s as writer of The Lost Boys, the sequel to the cult classic vampire film.

His work on both Revival and Hack/Slash will not be impacted by the exclusive deal. But, what it does mean is that his announced Blade series with Marvel which has been delayed and in limbo is dead, at least with him at the helm. The comic was announced to be released in October 2015 but never materialized.
