Joe Quesada          

Chief Creative Officer of Marvel; Comic Book Editor, Writer and Artist

Joseph "Joe" Quesada is an American comic book editor, writer and artist. He became known in the 1990s for his work on various Valiant Comics books, such as Ninjak and Solar, Man of the Atom. He later worked on numerous books for DC Comics and Marvel Comics, such as Batman: Sword of Azrael and X-Factor, before forming his own company, Event Comics, where he published his creator-owned character, Ash.

In 1998 he became an editor of Marvel Comics' Marvel Knights line, before becoming editor-in-chief of the company in 2000, the first artist to attain that position. He was named Chief Creative Officer of Marvel Entertainment in 2010 and left his editor-in-chief role in January 2011, being replaced by Axel Alonso.

As Chief Creative Officer of Marvel Entertainment, Quesada helps ensure that all portrayals of Marvel's characters and stories remain true to the essence of Marvel history. He oversees the creative aspects of media adaptations of Marvel properties, which includes participating in story and script development. Quesada contrasted his former editor-in-chief role as one in which he was solely focused on rebuilding Marvel's editorial division and overseeing its comics content, with his Chief Creative Officer role as one in which he would be involved creatively with several divisions.
