Becky Cloonan has a prolific career as a writer and artist, including her self-published short stories The Mire, Demeter, and Wolves, collected (now o/p but soon to be re-collected) as By Chance or Providence. She earned the distinction of becoming the first woman to draw Batman on the main title since the series debuted in 1939, and has also worked as artist on series such as Conan, Harley Quinn, Northlanders, Buffy, American Virgin, The Fabulous Lives of the Killjoys, American Virgin, and Demo (nominated for 2 Eisners).
She’s also a cracking writer, working on the brilliant YA series Gotham Academy for DC, and Southern Cross with Image Comics. Her most recently announced project is as lead writer on the new Punisher series for Marvel Comics with artist Steve Dillion, to be released in May.
