Jay Leisten started his career in comics as an intern at Top Cow. He began working for Marvel & DC on covers for several titles. Within a few months, he was working on titles such as Thor, Legion, and Black Panther. Jay worked on a three year run with Greg Land on Uncanny X-men, and one year on Iron Man, Monsters Unleashed, Astonishing X-Men and more. Others include Moon Knight, Nightwing, Outsiders, Captain Britain & Dark X-Men, Death of Wolverine, Secret Empire, as well as several other Marvel projects.
Greg Land is an American comic book artist, best known for his work for Marvel Comics’ Uncanny X-Men, Birds of Prey, and Fantastic Four.. Land’s first job was with an independent publisher as the artist for StormQuest. He began working for DC Comics in 1999, finishing the covers for Birds of Prey, based on the sketches of Brian Stelfreeze. He also had runs as penciler on both Birds of Prey and Nightwing.
Land also worked at CrossGen Comics on Sojourn. The series ran from July 2001 through May 2004, for a total of 34 issues.
After CrossGen went out of business, Land went on to work at Marvel Comics, where he did covers to various series. This led to a collaboration with writer Greg Pak as the main artist of X-Men: Phoenix – Endsong. Following that project, Land became the penciler for Ultimate Fantastic Four. He produced the artwork for a crossover between Marvel’s Supremeverse and the Ultimate Universe, entitled Ultimate Power, which was written by Brian Michael Bendis, J. Michael Straczynski and Jeph Loeb. Land also created the covers for Marvel Zombies 3 which were all homages to posters of notable zombie movies.
In 2008, Land illustrated Uncanny X-Men #500. From then until December 2011 he would illustrate several sporadic sets of issues, totaling 22 in all, his last being issue #544. During this same period he also illustrated issue #210 and 235–237 of X-Men: Legacy. In 2012, Land illustrated issues #5–8 and 11–12 of the relaunched Uncanny X-Men.
