Dustin Nguyen (born in 1976)[1] is an Eisner Award-winning[2] and New York Times-bestselling comic book artist. He has worked for DC Comics and WildStorm since 2000. He is currently the artist on his and Jeff Lemire's creator-owned series, Descender for Image Comics. Outside of comics, Dustin is also known as a conceptual artist for toys, games, and animation.


Nguyen has worked on such titles as Jet with Dan Abnett, Wildcats v3.0 with Joe Casey, Batman with Judd Winick, Manifest Eternity with Scott Lobdell, and the latest revamp of The Authority, The Authority: Revolution, with Ed Brubaker. He was also the artist on a six-issue arc of Superman/Batman entitled "Torment", written by Alan Burnett.

Starting with issue #840, Nguyen became the regular ongoing artist on one of DC's flagship titles, Detective Comics, with writer Paul Dini. Their run lasted until issue #852, after which the pair launched Batman: Streets of Gotham, which lasted 21 issues and was cancelled in March 2011. In 2012, Nguyen collaborated with writer Scott Snyder on the miniseries American Vampire: Lord of Nightmares which made the New York Times Best Seller list in 2013.[3] Since then, he has launched Batman: Li'l Gotham with co-writer Derek Fridolfs, an all ages series that was positively reviewed by Brian Truitt of USA Today. In rendering that series, Nguyen drew inspiration from the cartoons of the 1980s and '90s that he viewed in his childhood, explaining that in watching them, "you get this goofy view of the world."[4]
