Tim Seeley has a new challenge this fall. Not only is he diverging from the world of indie comics to write for DC, but he also has to reconcile three different appearances by Killer Croc in the New 52.

Batman and Robin #23.4: Killer Croc, one of DC's "Villains Month" issues, features a script by Tim Seeley with art by Francis Portela. The story details how Killer Croc fits into the battle for criminal control of Gotham City after the disappearance of Batman.

Killer Croc is a unique DC villain right now because he's already been used several times in New 52 — and in a wide variety of ways — in just the almost-two years since the universe rebooted.

First, he was a monstrous threat for Batwoman, turning into Hydra and destroying the building in which she lived.

But then he was also shown in a Red Hood and the Outlaws flashback, helping Roy Harper through his alcoholism.
And then there was a battle with Katana, where he broke her beloved sword.

The appearances were all a bit different, so now Seeley hopes to find a way to mesh all those Killer Crocs into one character in the Villains Month issue.

Does this mean more work at DC for Seeley? It's possible, since Seeley's popular Image Comic Hack/Slash just ended (although he's got a lot of other work lined up on other series).

Newsarama talked to Seeley to gauge his interest in writing for DC, and to find out what his take is on Killer Croc.


Nrama: I know Killer Croc has appeared in the New 52 a few times. He first showed up in Batwoman, right?

Seeley: Yep, exactly. He was in Batwoman, and he broke Katana's sword in half with his jaws, and then he had one weird little cameo in Red Hood where he was Roy's sponsor for an alcohol rehab.

Nrama: Oh yeah, he had him, like, down in the sewers, right?

Seeley: Yeah, exactly. So those were the three things I had to reconcile.

Nrama: Yeah, and those are really different appearances to reconcile.

Seeley: Exactly.

Roy was at his lowest point and decided to go into Gotham's sewers and pick a fight with Killer Croc. Croc saw through "death by Croc" and decided to sponsor the lad into AA setting him back to being a hero again. Though Croc promised if Roy ever pull this stunt again he'd eat him.

Blackman and Williams have already started to sort some of this out in this week's Batwoman #21
