Chris originally started in comics in 1989, his first credited work being a Chemical King story in an issue of DC Comics' Secret Origins. He then did a Two-Face story for Batman Annual #14 and then moved on to the limited series Hammerlocke. Sprouse then took on the sci-fi series Legionnaires, featuring teenaged versions of the characters in the Legion of Super-Heroes series, and eventually moved on to a number of one-shot and fill-in issues before illustrating a Star Wars miniseries, Splinter of the Mind's Eye, for Dark Horse Comics.
He then worked for Awesome Comics as the regular penciller of New Men, and in 1997, Chris drew several issues of Supreme, scripted by Alan Moore for the same publisher. After Supreme ended, a year later he and Moore created Tom Strong for America's Best Comics, for which Chris won two Eisner Awards in 2000, for Best Single Issue and Best Serialized Story. Chris was also the penciller on the 2004 Ocean miniseries, written by Warren Ellis and published by DC Comics.
