Division Chief Visionary Comics

Brian Augustyn has worked as a writer and editor in comics for many years, including a long stint as editor at DC Comics. There he oversaw top selling titles, bringing characters that had fallen from the spotlight back into the forefront. He also wrote many series for them, including the award-winning first Elseworlds story, creating the line with Batman: Gotham by Gaslight. Brian helped launch the careers of many of the best talents now known in the industry, and his influence continue to shape it.

In 2006 Brian lent his insight and skills to a neophyte studio looking to make its mark, and thus Visionary was born. He now returns to lead the Comics Division, working as writer and editor for upcoming books.
