Early lifeEdit

Chiang graduated from Harvard College, with a joint degree in English Literature and Visual Arts.[2]

CareerEdit

Chiang illustrated the series Green Arrow/Black Canary, under writer Judd Winick, from issues 1 - 7, although he continued to supply cover art until issue #15.

Chiang wrote an 8-part Dr. Thirteen back-up story, "Architecture & Mortality", in Tales of the Unexpected with writer Brian Azzarello.

In September 2011, DC Comics launched a new Wonder Woman series as part of its line-wide New 52 title relaunch, with Chiang as artist on the title, reuniting him with his previous collaborator Brian Azzarello. The first issue of the series was released in September 2011.[3]

In July 2012, as part of the San Diego Comic-Con, Chiang was one of six artists who, along with DC co-publishers Jim Lee and Dan DiDio, participated in the production of "Heroic Proportions", an episode of the Syfy reality television competition series Face Off, in which special effects were tasked to create a new superhero, with Chiang and the other DC artists on hand to help them develop their ideas. The winning entry's character, Infernal Core by Anthony Kosar, was featured in Justice League Dark #16 (March 2013),[4][5] which was published January 30, 2013.[6] The episode premiered on January 22, 2013, as the second episode of the fourth season.[7]

In 2015, Cliff began working on Paper Girls with Brian K. Vaughan, for which he won the 2016 Eisner Award for Best Penciller/Inker.[8]
