Tim Seeley, the writer and creator behind titles such as Hack/Slash and Revival, has been named the Managing Editor of Heavy Metal Magazine. He will now be in charge of creating and overcoming content for all upcoming issues.
“To me, Heavy Metal represents what comic books can do best…presenting lots and lots of outrageously compelling and slightly dangerous ideas,” Seeley said in a recent interview.”It’s pure, unrestrained creation. And, I’ve now done literally every job a person can have in comics, so I know that working in a creative director position suits maybe better than any other job. Now while I’m writing lots of comics, I can look over the shoulder of other people making comics with a big goofy smile on my face and tell them I love it.”
Heavy Metal Magazine is also helmed by Publisher Kevin Eastman, creator of the Teenage Mutant NinjaTurtles, and Editor-In-Chief Grant Morrison, a comic book writer currently on DC Comics’ Green Lantern.
