Kyle Higgins (born June 12, 1985) is an American comic book writer and film director. He is best known for his work on the Batman franchise at DC Comics.\\nAfter writing and directing his college thesis film titled The League, about the superhero labor union of 1960's Chicago, Higgins spent a year writing for Marvel Comics before authoring the back-up features for the 2010 editions of Detective Comics Annual and Batman Annual. The stories introduced the Franco-Islamic character Nightrunner, who he co-created with David Hine and caused some controversy. Higgins stayed on the Batman brand, co-writing the five-issue Batman: Gates of Gotham with Detective Comics scribe Scott Snyder which delved into the history of Gotham City. When DC rebooted their entire line with The New 52, Higgins stayed in Gotham, writing Nightwing, often interlinking arcs with Snyder who moved to the Batman title. Higgins also wrote the first eight issues of Deathstroke in September 2011 and the four issue Squadron Supreme (Supreme Power) mini-series.
