As an author of prose he has also concentrated on Superhero figures, beginning with "The Silver Surfer" in The Ultimate Silver Surfer (anth 1995) edited by Stan Lee. His full-length books are all Ties, beginning with X-Men & Spider-Man: Time's Arrow: The Past (1998) with Jason Henderson. He is also responsible (with others) for The Marvel Encyclopedia (2006), which contains over 1000 entries, most of them thorough, though the book has been faulted for some inaccuracies. [JC]
