He wrote the original graphic novel The Coffin with artist Mike Huddleston, which was optioned for a feature film by James Cameron. At Image Comics he created Firebreather with artist Andy Kuhn, which became an Emmy-winning animated television feature for Cartoon Network.
His work, as both artist and writer, has been featured in hundreds of comics from nearly every major American publisher and includes runs on such titles as The Darkness, Wonder Woman, Ant-Man, Ultimate Marvel Team-Up, Nightwing, Invincible Universe, Batman Beyond, The Flash: Season Zero, The Thrilling Adventure Hour: Beyond Belief, Deathstroke, and his current Image project Mythic with artist John McCrea.
