Joining the likes of Tom King and Dan Abnett, DC Comics has added another writer to its exclusive talent roster today. Sam Humphries, the current writer on Rebirth’s “Green Lanterns” ongoing series, has joined DC Comics on an exclusive deal to write “solely for DC and Vertigo.”
“We’re very excited to have Sam come to DC,” said DC Editor-in-Chief Bob Harras in a statement. “Sam is telling human stories that readers are emotionally connecting to, which is what being a Green Lantern is all about. Jessica and Simon are in great hands.”
“I am thrilled to be writing at DC Entertainment,” added Humphries. “Today’s announcement takes an already spectacular creative partnership to the next level.” The deal’s inclusion of Vertigo, DC’s mature readers imprint, means Humphries will soon be making his debut for the imprint.
Humphries spoke with CBR in June about his “Green Lanterns” run and expressed his excitement to be playing a major role in Rebirth. As if this news weren’t big enough, the writer also announced his engagement yesterday on Twitter.

In addition to his DC work, Humphries recently wrote the Image Comics political satire series “Citizen Jack,” which he co-created with artist Tommy Patterson.
DC has also recently signed artists Liam Sharpcb (“Wonder Woman”), Andy Kubert (“Dark Knight III”), writers Dan Abnett (“Titans,” “Aquaman”), Amanda Conner (“Harley Quinn”) and writer James Tynion IV (“Detective Comics”) to exclusive deals.
“Green Lanterns #7” by Humphries and artist Ronan Cliquet is on sale now from DC Comics.
