Steve Erwin (born January 16, 1960[1]) is an American comic book artist.


Erwin studied commercial art at Oklahoma State University–Okmulgee.[2] His first published comic book work appeared in Grimjack #18 (Jan. 1986) [3] published by First Comics. During the 1980s and 1990s, he worked primarily for DC Comics, his first story for that publisher appearing in The Vigilante #48 (Dec. 1987).[3] After that title's cancellation, Erwin co-created the title Checkmate! with writer Paul Kupperberg.[4] In August 1991, Erwin and Marv Wolfman launched the Deathstroke The Terminator title,[5] a series which Erwin would draw from 1991 to 1994.[3] The Gunfire character was created by Len Wein and Erwin in Deathstroke the Terminator Annual #3 (October 1993).[6] Erwin drew the comics adaptation of Batman Returns as well as Star Trek: The Next Generation Shadowheart, and the graphic novel adaptation of The Ashes of Eden.

He illustrated the Mike Danger series published by Tekno Comix.

In 2007, Erwin was inducted into the Oklahoma Cartoonists Hall of Fame in Pauls Valley, Oklahoma, located in the Toy and Action Figure Museum.[2]
