Since 2004 Reis has worked for DC Comics on Action Comics, Teen Titans, Rann–Thanagar War, Superman, and Infinite Crisis. Reis started pencilling Green Lantern vol. 4 with issue #10 (May 2006).[4] Reis' left Green Lantern after issue #38 (March 2009) to draw the Blackest Night limited series (June 2009 - May 2010)[5] and its follow-up limited series Brightest Day (July 2010 - June 2011).[6][7] Reis was the regular penciller of writer Geoff Johns' run on Aquaman vol. 7, which premiered in September 2011.
