Nelson started writing comics while at Dartmouth College, where he also converted to the Baha'i Faith.[1] 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.[2] It was planned as a 38 issue series and ends with issue #19.[3] He has also created spin-off stories, like "Hill of Martyrs" which started in Rex Mundi #14 and continued online.[4]

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.[5]
