Life and career

Nelson started writing comics while at Dartmouth College, where he also converted to the Baha'i Faith. After graduating in 1999 he became a production assistant on a Woody Allen film, but it was while working on a documentary about The Paris Review that he visited Paris and started picking up influences that would lead to his creating Rex Mundi.

Nelson has also worked at Marvel and DC. For the former he wrote a Nightcrawler story in X-Men Unlimited. At DC he wrote a Mr Terrific story in JSA Classified and the first one-shot of the The Joker's Asylum series.
