James Tynion IV will write the new DC Comics title, with Snyder as co-plotter.
The Batman and Swamp Thing scribe previously served as his new colleague's writing teacher at Sarah Lawrence College in New York.
"A lot of people say it's great to see new blood and young writers given a chance, and this book is that," Snyder told USA Today.
Talon, which will debut in September as one of DC's third wave of New 52 titles, focuses on a rogue assassin trained by the Court of Owls, Calvin Rose.
"The mythology Scott has been building in Batman with the Court of Owls and the Talons, it's so rich and there's so much you can do with the conspiracy and the secret history," said Tynion.
"It's been very rooted in Batman's perspective into it. Batman's someone who's coming from the outside looking in trying to discover the truth about it. This is someone who came up through it, and he knows more about the Court than Batman."
The four new titles will also see the return of fan favourite character Amethyst, Princess of Gemworld.
Talon #0 will debut in September.
