He also worked for DC Comics, where he provided art for one issue of the comic book Batman Chronicles.

Cruz also worked as a storyboard designer for advertising agencies, a character designer for TV shows, and an art teacher, and gave a two-year course of lectures and workshops in universities..

Controversy

Roger Cruz Roger Cruz Lambiek Comiclopedia

Cruz was a regular on the (now defunct) Genesis Comics "Swipe Of The Week" website around 1999. The site placed two pieces of published work by two different artists side by side, and allowed the users to vote whether they were seeing an homage, a coincidence, or a direct copy. Primarily, Cruz's work was placed beside the previously printed work of Joe Madureira, but also Jim Lee. Cruz has acknowledged on his (now defunct) website that he learned to draw primarily by copying from other pencillers.
