‘Brilliant Trash’ is an Attempt on a New Take on Superhero Comics

Brilliant Trash from an established creator working at DC and Vertigo is a new comic series.

During a recent interview, the writer currently working on Nightwing and Imaginary Friends talks about his new series, Brilliant Trash. The co-creators of Tim Seeley as writer and artist Priscilla Petraites spoke about the series. While they have connections to major publishers, they chose indie publisher AfterShock Comics to release it.

In it, a click bait reporter lives in a world where superhero powers can be purchased. They hit upon a conspiracy behind this ability and as a result, everyone comes after them.

Seeley says that it explores where humanity is going and a future where we might develop super powers ourselves.
