Mini Bio (1)

American comic book editor and writer who has held many positions at Marvel, including executive editor and editor of their popular Ultimates Line. Macchio is commonly associated with the Spider-Man comics.

Macchio began his association with Marvel Comics in the 1970s, primarily because of his many letters published in Marvel comic books. Macchio met writer Don McGregor at a comic book convention, who knowing him from his letters, asked Macchio if he wanted a tour of the Marvel offices. During the tour, Macchio was asked by writer Chris Claremont to interview editor-in-chief Roy Thomas for FOOM (Marvel's self-produced fanzine). During the course of doing the interview, Macchio met many more Marvel employees, and eventually was asked by writer/editor John Warner to join the staff and assist Warner with Marvel's black-and-white magazine line. Macchio agreed, and has been at Marvel ever since.

Early on (in 1981 and 1982), Macchio edited the Dazzler comic. From 1984 through 1995, Macchio was the editor for Daredevil. He also spent long stints on Spider-Man, as well as The Avengers, Thor, Master of Kung Fu, Fantastic Four, and Captain America.

Macchio wrote the scripts for the comic book miniseries of The Sword of Solomon Kane, based on Robert E. Howard's Puritan swordsman. He has also written for The Avengers, Marvel Fanfare, and X-Men Adventures, among others.

Personal Quotes (1)

Working on Daredevil and Thor with guys such as Frank Miller and Walter Simonson. Working on Moon Knight with Doug Moench and Bill Sienkiewicz. These were great projects because of the caliber of the talent. Just watching them take these characters to new heights. Also, I thoroughly enjoyed becoming the Spider-Man editor during the midst of the clone saga and being given the responsibility of pulling it all together and making sure the ending paid off in a big way. I was pleased with the group effort it took to get that character back to where I felt he should be.
