You're forgetting Nova and Guardians of the Galaxy. He and Andy Lanning have done an awesome job helping resurrect Marvel's cosmic characters. Alas, I think they are finally out of steam.

I haven't read his solo paperback books, I have only read the comics that he cowrites with Andy Lanning. I love the way the team writes. The Marvel Cosmic run that Keith Giffen started and they finished (I am guessing that Annihilators: Earthfall will be the last of their work) was amazing. Truly an epic arc.

I just started reading Heroes for Hire via trades. Just like with Guardians of the Galaxy they can take a bunch of second-rate characters and make an incredibly entertaining team.

I am incredibly happy to have them writing Resurrection Man again over at DC. Very different from their Marvel work, but a great read.

Love his writing. I actually pick up books just because I see he's involved, and am currently enjoying his IDW work.
