Ryan Winn is an American comic book artist and inker residing in Orange County, CA. He frequently contributes artwork for DC Comics.


After apprenticing for several years as a "ghost inker", he first began receiving credit for his ink work in the early 2000s. He has worked for several major publishers and is currently working for DC Comics. For many years, he contributed art work to Top Cow and his work on The Darkness earned him a Harvey Award nomination for Best Inker, announced June 30, 2009.[1]

In 2009, he was recruited to work on WildCats for Wildstorm Comics, inking over Tim Seeley. He then moved to projects from DC 'Central' such as Brightest Day, Untold Tales of the Blackest Night, Detective Comics, Teen Titans, Catwoman, and Batman working with artists such as Tony Daniel, David Finch, ChrisCross, and Marcus To.

Beginning in early 2011, he worked on Batman with artist Tony Daniel and then transitioned to Detective Comics for the re-launch of The New 52, the first issue of which has received six printings, second only to the relaunched Justice League which garnered seven printings.[2] The relaunched Detective Comics received the award for "Best Series" at the 2012 Stan Lee Awards.[3]

In 2012, he began work on The New 52 series Batwing with writer Judd Winick and artists ChrisCross and Marcus To.
