“I can’t wait to share (you’ll see) everything we have planned for the future. Up, up and away,” Taylor tweeted,


Announcements of exclusive creator contracts aren’t news fodder for DC and Marvel Comics (a factor in their dwindling rivalry), but fan-favorite Taylor is a notable ‘get’ for DC.

Taylor currently writes the ongoing DC series Nightwing and Superman: Son of Kal-El, as well as the limited series The Dark Knights of Steel which is an alternate reality series that features familiar DC characters and relationships, much like medieval fantasy. He also wrote DCZ, a limited series featuring a zombie-like apocalypse in the DC omniverse, but taking place outside of DC’s main continuity.

Alternative (which DC sometimes calls ‘Ellsworld’) and external continuity on the iconic superhero is a feature for Taylor, who has also written several versions of DC’s adaptation of the popular video game franchise Injustice.

Taylor is also the author of the current alternate reality series Dark Ages for Marvel Comics, which makes the timing of Taylor’s announcement an attention-grabber for the publisher.

Taylor did not comment on his future DC plans other than his “up, above and away” comment, which may suggest that he is living on Superman: Kal-El’s son and/or Superman-related extras. There are plans.

Taylor has had a varied career working for several comic book publishers such as Dark Horse and Boom! studio. He is also the creator of The Deep, a creator-owned award-winning all-ages graphic novel series published through Gestalt Publishing that was adapted into an animated series for which Taylor was co-creator, lead writer and Serves as executive producer.
