He was also the writer and creator of Epic’s acclaimed Moonshadow series, with artist Jon Jay Muth, which was later republished and completed at DC under their Vertigo imprint. He returned to DC as the writer of Justice League International with plotter Keith Giffen. He went back to Marvel in 1991 to write Spectacular Spider-man.
