He started his career as a young artist back in the late '90s at CrossGen, the Tampa-based comic book publisher. He and a bunch of creators signed on for what looked like a bold new direction in the making of comics—and it was.
After relocating to Florida from Pennysylvania, Josh worked on their title Meridian and fans ate it up. But it wasn't long before things went South (pun intended), and he and others decided to part ways with the maverick company.
Post CrossGen, Josh pubbed a creator-owned project called Sky Between Branches with a European company, Com.X. The preview issue of the book got the attention of Joe Quesada at Marvel, and he asked Middleton to collaborate with him on a little something called NYX.
That series was, of course, a huge hit and from there Josh worked on Superman/Shazam First Thunder over at DC among other things. He's also done a ton of covers over the last few years for titles like New Mutants, American Virgin, Vixen and Supergirl.
As implied earlier, this guy is somewhat of a white tiger. He's one of few comic artists living here in the States who handles all the art chores himself. Every bit. You tend to see more of that sort of thing in places like Europe, so it makes him a rare breed on this soil.
