DC's current Batman lead writer. Snyder began with an acclaimed arc on Detective Comics just before the New 52 launched, and transitioned to the main Batman title with the new number 1. He laid groundwork for what became Batman Eternal with the pre-New 52 miniseries Gates of Gotham co-written by Kyle Higgins. Snyder and his collaborators, including Higgins and James Tynion IV have championed many of the more neglected characters in the Batman universe, including Cass Cain in Gates of Gotham, and most recently Steph Brown as a key figure in Batman Eternal.
