Tim Seeley, widely known for his work on DC Comics’ Grayson and Nightwing, will journey across the pond with John Constantine as he takes over as writer of The Hellblazer, beginning in August with Issue 13. He’ll be joined by artist Jesus Merino (Justice Society of America, Superman).
Seeley, co-creator of Hack/Slash and Revival, is certainly no stranger to the horror genre, which appears to be what drew him to DC Comics’ resident occult detective.

“I’ve wanted to work on The Hellblazer for as long as I can remember,” he told Nerdist. “John isn’t quite a hero. He’s doing his best to get by, making mistakes along the way, and checking off things he’ll regret later. Y’know, like all of us. The Hellblazer is one of the few, genuine horror series DC regularly puts out, and telling icky, creepy, scary stories with just a touch of sexy is totally my thing.”
Seeley will also pull double duty by providing cover art for the run, which he described as “the perfect gig for ol’ Tim.”
The Hellblazer #13 goes on sale in August.
