Besides being one of the most talented current comic book creators, Scott Snyder is one of my favorite writers because he is always finding new ways to engage fans via social media.
Snyder tweeted earlier in appreciation of the Bat tattoos (Bat-toos?) (sorry) that he saw at NYCC last week, and put out a call for any others he hasn’t seen yet. The cool part: he teased a “walk on” role in upcoming Batman comic book issue #25:
Saw some serious Batman-tattoos at NYCC – any more out there? Might get you killed in Batman #25 – need a name for a victim!

In case the embedded tweet does not appear, here it is as an image:
His tweet instantly got some pretty cool responses from Bat fans begging to be killed. We’ll definitely be on the lookout for “Murder Victim TBD” in issue #25.
