Double Page Spread Episode 134: Tom King

 

 

Tom King is on a hot streak right now writing popular books for Marvel and DC, as well as his own creator owned property for Vertigo. He discusses the hit, “Grayson”, which he cowrites with Tim Seeley, and the versatility of the Dick Grayson/Nightwing character throughout Batman and beyond, as well as what it’s like to write beefcake for a character best defined by a shapely behind! He talks about the resurrection of “Omega Men” from cancellation, his layout and panel technique, “Vision” and the American suburban dream, and the underlying politics of all his titles. King’s experience serving in the CIA also informs his new book “Sheriff of Babylon”, set in the early days post 9/11 days of the war on terror.
