Rising star Cliff Chiang has signed a 2-year exclusive agreement with DC Comics. Chiang is the illustrator of the current VERTIGO miniseries BEWARE THE CREEPER, the recent DC Universe project BATMAN: THE GOLDEN STREETS OF GOTHAM, and the DETECTIVE COMICS back-up series "Josie Mac."
"DC has given me so many opportunities in a relatively short time to grow as an artist and explore the medium - from my work on mainstream characters like Batman and Wonder Woman, to cool and edgier fare like BEWARE THE CREEPER, so I'm more than happy to make the relationship official," says Chiang. "That kind of diversity, combined with the support and encouragement of my editors, has really allowed me to stretch my abilities and take creative risks. I'm grateful for DC's commitment to developing and holding on to talent and look forward to the challenges of the next two years."
"Cliff's fluid and confident storytelling belies the fact that's he's only been professionally drawing comics for a few years," says Karen Berger, VP - Executive Editor, VERTIGO. "His sweeping linework and nuanced style has made him an artist with incredible potential, and a perfect partner in crime with Peter Milligan and Javier Pulido on VERTIGO's new HUMAN TARGET monthly".
