<b>Titles you've worked on:</b> "Flash," "Legion of Super Heroes," "<a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="PEFCC000006" title="Spider-Man (fictional character)" href="/topic/entertainment/movies/spider-man-%28fictional-character%29-PEFCC000006.topic">Spider-Man</a>," "The Avengers." Current title is "The Regulators" for Advent Comics.<br>
<br>
<b>How long have you been drawing comics?</b> My first published work was in 1980 for DC Comics, a splash page for "Unexpected." So I guess you could actually say my career started in horror. Or was it "Mystery in Space?" It's been so long!<br>
<br>
<b>How long have you been reading comics?</b> Fantastic Four No. 1 hooked me for life.<br>
<br>
<b>The advantages of comics as a medium?</b> There are many. The ongoing serial aspect to the story and character development over time is nice when you're on a book for a while. Also, the explosion of the independent books has led to much more opportunity for other than ‘mainstream' work to be published and seen. ... I guess creating a world and characters that fans grow to love and respect and come to think of as almost alive (see "Big Bang Theory"), and knowing your work touches so many, is a very nice thing.
