After 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.
The Lost Boys never grow old, never die, and have a new miniseries from Vertigo on behalf of Warner Bros. Consumer Products hitting shelves October 12. The stakes are high in this nostalgic and unstoppable sequel to the ’80s cult classic vampire film. Featuring the surviving characters from the film, The Lost Boys comic book is being crafted by horror veterans, writer Tim Seeley and artists Scott Godlewski and Patricia Mulvihill, with covers by Tony Harris. The team will deliver a gruesome and stylish return to the bloody boardwalks and big hair of 1987.
Santa Carla, California, is on edge. The eccentric coastal town and haven for the undead was finally returning to “normal” after its last supernatural scuffle left the local vampire coven’s leader dead and gave newcomers Michael and Sam Emerson a housewarming both violent and bizarre. Now the brothers must once again team up with militant vampire hunters Edgar and Allan Frog as a new gang of ruthless, stunning, life-sucking nightcrawlers known as the Blood Belles emerges from the aftermath to collect Michael’s love interest and their lost sister, Star.
The first issue of this monthly miniseries from Vertigo hits shelves on October 12.
