Steven Cummings is an American comic book artist.


Presented his first professional work by DC Comics editor Bob Schreck, Steven Cummings penciled an unpublished inventory issue of Green Lantern featuring John Stewart. This work opened the doorway for Gene Pool (a graphic novella written by Marv Wolfman and Len Wein through IDW Publishing).

Since then Steven Cummings has worked for Marvel Comics on Elektra and New Excalibur. He has also worked with DC Comics editor Joey Cavalieri on Flash (written by Geoff Johns and featuring the Mirror Master), the Deadshot mini-series and Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight (which have allowed him to expand his creative wings as he does both the pencils and the inks for those stories). Kenzer & Company, Arcana Studio, Th3rdWorld Studios and Devil's Due Publishing have also contracted him to do covers for their books.

Beyond the U.S. Direct Market, Steven Cummings had a graphic album published in Europe by Les Humanoïdes Associés. As well, Cummings, along with writer Paul Benjamin, has developed a manga, Pantheon High, for TokyoPop. Pantheon High marks the debut of his wife, Megumi Cummings, as his inker. This book also features Cummings' first printed zip-a-tone work as well as hand-colored cover.

His current project is the upcoming CSI: Intern at Your Own Risk for Tokyopop written by Sekou Hamilton. Like all his manga work, CSI is also being created with the help of his wife Megumi. He is also busy working on art for Canada's Udon Entertainment when he's not buried under a pile of Tokyopop art or his own creator-owned short stories.

He has a new website complete with an online forum for aspiring artists at [1]. Steven Cummings also shares a forum at PaperFilms' Forum (a site run by Jimmy Palmiotti, Amanda Conner and Justin Gray).
