Biography

During Joe Casey's run at Marvel Comics people started to recognize his talent as a writer, especially in regard to his work on the book "Cable". He took the story in a totally different direction than had been previously established. Cable went from a multi-gun toting tough guy to a more spiritualized leader for the Askani.

Joe Casey wrote many titles for Wildstorm comics, often to high critical acclaim, like the highly experimental "Automatic Kafka" with artist Ashley Wood. Casey took over Wildcats and gave the series new direction turning from standard superheroics to corporate espionage. His "Mister Majestic" series with artist Ed McGuiness impressed DC Comics enough to offer them a run on "Adventures of Superman".

Joe Casey's "Full Moon Fever" was announced to be directed by Renny Harlin in December 2004. [ [http://www.variety.com/article/VR1117914425.html?categoryid=1238&cs=1 Helmer running a 'Fever'] , "Variety", December 5, 2005]

Joe Casey is currently writing a limited series for Marvel Comics, a sequel to 2005's "Avenger's: Earth's Mightiest Heroes". He also is writing the ongoing series "" for Devil's Due Publishing and "Gødland" for Image Comics. He is also working on a revamp of the original "Youngblood" miniseries by Rob Liefeld, called "Maximum Youngblood". Recently, as well, as discussing the ending of "Gødland" and the new "Charlatan Ball", he mentioned that "Codeflesh" would be returning.
