J.T. Krul's first comic book work was at Marvel Comics, writing X-Men Unlimited and later, Spider-Man Unlimited.[3] He subsequently went to work for Michael Turner's company, Aspen MLT, writing their flagship titles Fathom and Soulfire. He then launched a creator-owned comic book there called Mindfield, which debuted in 2010.[2]

In 2008 Krul wrote Past Experience, a Heroes comic book story starring characters from the NBC TV series of the same name.[4] That same year, he wrote the third book in the Joker's Asylum series of one-shots, which featured Poison Ivy.[5][6]

As part of DC Comics' The New 52 relaunch in 2011, Krul wrote Green Arrow[11][12] and Captain Atom.[13] He left Green Arrow after issue #3 due to time pressures but continued to write Captain Atom.[14]
