Eventually, JMS set his sights on comics. A lifelong fan of the medium, he began by penning a few "B5" books before launching Joe's Comics through Top Cow, where he created "Rising Stars" and "Midnight Nation." Eventually, he left the world of creator-owned comics and spent time working for Marvel and DC Comics, where he had significant runs on "Amazing Spider-Man," "Thor," "Superman" and "Wonder Woman."
Earlier this year, JMS made the return to creator-owned work, resurrecting his Joe's Comics imprint under the general Image Comics banner. The first project is "Ten Grand," a supernatural mystery co-created with artist Ben Templesmith.
