Career

Starting his professional writing career at Marvel Comics, Casey wrote for several titles, including Cable, The Incredible Hulk and Uncanny X-Men.

Casey wrote many titles for Wildstorm, like the highly experimental Automatic Kafka with artist Ashley Wood. Casey took over Wildcats and gave the series a new direction, moving it from the superhero genre to incorporate elements of corporate espionage. He wrote a Mister Majestic series with artist Ed McGuiness, after which they subsequently collaborated on Adventures of Superman, which Casey wrote for three years.

Casey wrote 2005's Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes limited series and its sequel for Marvel Comics. Since 2001 Casey has produced creator-owned work through Image Comics, including Gødland, Codeflesh, Nixon's Pals, Charlatan Ball, Doc Bizarre, M.D., Officer Downe. He also wrote a revamp of the original Youngblood miniseries by Rob Liefeld, called Maximum Youngblood. As well as discussing the ending of Gødland, Charlatan Ball and Nixon's Pals,[1] he mentioned that Codeflesh[2] would be returning.[3]

Casey was featured in a 2006 documentary about the 1990s comic boom and bust called Adventures Into Digital Comics.[4]

Casey is a member of the Man of Action collective of creators (with Joe Kelly, Duncan Rouleau, Steven T. Seagle), who created the series Ben 10, currently airing on Cartoon Network. They also created the show Generator Rex, which also ran for two seasons on Cartoon Network. They are producers/story editors on the shows Ultimate Spider-Man and Marvel's Avengers Assemble airing on Disney XD. Casey also co-created the animated property Disco Destroyer with Scott Mosier and Jim Mahfood.

Dark Reign: Zodiac pits a new iteration of the old Avengers enemies against Norman Osborn's new status quo as Director of National Security,[5][6][7] and Final Crisis: Aftermath: Dance follows the adventures of the Super Young Team.[8][9] His brief return to DC also included a brief run on Superman/Batman.

His next work for Image Comics, with Mike Huddleston on art duties, was Butcher Baker: The Righteous Maker. The critically acclaimed series ended with issue #8, which was published on August 15, 2012, ten months after issue #7, a delay that Casey stated was due to Huddleston's having overcommitted himself. Huddleston responded to Casey's public statement by stating that the delay was caused by his need to take over work in order to make sufficient money, as Butcher Baker was not lucrative enough for him to avoid doing so. Huddleston further explained that he apologized to Casey and to fans for the delay.[10][11]

That same year, Casey debuted the six-issue Marvel miniseries Vengeance, which introduced a group of new villains to the Marvel Universe.[12] The hardcover collection was released in December 2012.

His other work includes the creator-owned series Sex and The Bounce for Image Comics, as well as Catalyst Comix for Dark Horse Comics, reviving many of the old Comics Greatest World superheroes from the 1990s.

  13. ^ Although initially intended as a longer stint, Casey was fired off the book after making the unpleasant comments on DC's decision to brand the first arc as a tie-in to the then-eight-year-old event, Our Worlds at War. Last two issues were finished by another writer/artist team, with Casey listed as "co-writer".
  14. ^ The book stopped publication at #28, which had last two pages written and drawn by Todd McFarlane (owner of the book). McFarlane was also listed as the writer of all subsequent issues, although none of those have been released so far. The original Casey/Fox solicitations for #29, #30 and #31 can still be found on the Internet.
