Template:Infobox Comics creator

Devin Kalile Grayson (birth name unknown[1]) is an American writer of comic books and novels. Titles that she has written include Gotham Knights, The Titans, the Vertigo series USER, and Nightwing. Her work on Gotham Knights made her the first woman to serve as the regular writer for a Batman title.


Grayson was born in New Haven, Connecticut and raised in Northern California. Her early ambition was to be an actress; she studied at the Berkeley Shakespeare Festival and attended the San Francisco School of the Arts, but while in community college she decided to become a writer instead, and subsequently transferred to Bard College in upstate New York.[2]

Her interest in comics was kindled when she happened to see an episode of Batman: The Animated Series on television. Her first comic book script to see print was "Like Riding a Bike", a 10-page short that appeared in The Batman Chronicles in 1997.[2]

In 2005, she wrote a creator-owned mini-series for DC's Wildstorm label entitled Matador with artist Brian Stelfreeze. She finished a five-year run on Nightwing in 2005. Her run on the series was controversial,[citation needed] especially after a storyline in which a female character sexually assaulted Nightwing.[citation needed]

She is openly bisexual,[2] and her work has been frequently praised in the gay press. USER was nominated for the GLAAD Outstanding Comic Book award in 2001 and she has been interviewed in The Advocate and Curve.

Her work was nominated for the Comics Buyer's Guide Award for Favorite Writer in 1999 and 2000.

Grayson has Type I Diabetes. She lives with a service dog and is the Director of Communications for Dogs for Diabetics.[3]
