Warner's most prolific period in the comic book field was from 1973–1979. During that time, he wrote many issues of Gold Key Comics' Dark Shadows, as well as assorted fill-ins for Marvel Comics, DC Comics, and Warren Publishing.
From 1975–1978, Warner served as an editor and writer for Marvel's line of black-and-white magazines, where he worked primarily on Deadly Hands of Kung Fu, but also on Doc Savage, Marvel Preview, and Rampaging Hulk. For the latter series he created the characters Killer Shrike and the Modular Man. Separately, he co-created Ulysses Bloodstone. During his stint as a Marvel/Curtis editor, Warner hired Ralph Macchio, who later went on to a long-running career at Marvel.
Warner is married to the former Beth Bleckley.
