Since then, she’s gone on to write and draw on titles like Dark Agnes, Conan the Barbarian, The Punisher, True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys,Gotham Academy, Detective Comics, and Batman, and working on creator-owned books like Southern Cross and the critically acclaimed collection of short stories, By Chance or Providence.

When she’s not making comics, she illustrates album art, and gig and movie posters for My Chemical Romance, Black Sabbath, Adult Swim, and Mondo.

Dark Agnes by Becky Cloonan
She enjoys old movies, true crime podcasts, and still tries to self-publish new minicomics when she can. Becky currently lives in Austin with her partner Michael, two weird cats, and a couple dozen plants.

“We have admired Becky’s work for years, and a serendipitous Twitter conversation brought us together,” said Marc Nathan, show promoter for the Baltimore Comic-Con. “Becky has been doing fantastic work in the industry for years, turning heads with both her striking artwork as well as her writing. We’re thrilled to have her join us in 2020!”
