This week’s DC Festival of Heroes: The Asian Superhero Celebration, which features the collective work of over thirty AAPI artists and writers, is a colorful testament of how deep the creative well truly is when it comes to gifted Asian and Pacific Islander comic book talent. However, it’s easy to forget that while many of these artists have come to comics recently, a good number of them have been a part of the industry for well over a decade.
It’s been a little while since we’ve gotten a new DC story from Dustin Nguyen, so we thought it was a good moment to chat with him a bit about his career as an artist, what he loves about drawing books for young readers and the unique relationship he had with Batman as a child.
To read more about Nguyen’s career, his love for Batman and how his story for DC Festival of Heroes came to be, head over to DC Comics!
