James Tynion IV is a comic book writer, best known for his work on
the Batman franchise for DC Comics. James' comics career began with
co-writing the back-up stories on Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo's
character defining run on BATMAN, which would lead to his making
his own name on a number of Bat-Centric series. This work would
culminate in James serving as the showrunner of two consecutive
weekly comic series, BATMAN ETERNAL and BATMAN & ROBIN ETERNAL.
Recently, he has become the writer of the massive cross-over
project, BATMAN/TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES, bringing two of the
most successful franchises together for the first time. The first
issue was one of the best selling comic issues of 2015.
The Young Adult Science Fiction epic THE WOODS broke all records for original series at the company when it was released in 2014, and has recently been optioned for television by Universal Cable Productions. He has also penned the critical successes MEMETIC, COGNETIC and UFOLOGY for the publisher. James has also recently stepped into the shoes of one of the most iconic anti-heroes in the comics medium with the critically acclaimed relaunch of CONSTANTINE: THE HELLBLAZER with Ming Doyle and Riley Rossmo.
An alumni of Sarah Lawrence College, Tynion now lives and works in Los Angeles, CA.
