In just a few short years, Scott Snyder has established himself as one of the top writers in superhero and horror comics: His impressive 2006 short-story collection Voodoo Heart garnered the attention of Stephen King, who penned an original story for the first five issues of Snyders Eisner Award-winning Vertigo series American Vampire, and the success of Vampire led to an acclaimed run on Detective Comics focusing on Dick Grayson as Batman. Headlining two major releases in DCs massive line-wide relaunch, Batman and Swamp Thing, while continuing American Vampire and co-writing Severed for Image Comics with Scott Tuft, Snyder is quickly becoming one of the busiest writers in comics.
