Bio:
Raised in Oakland and San Diego, California, as well as in Hawaii, Potts received an AA degree in commercial art from Chabot College in Hayward, Calif. After contributing to such underground comics as the anthology Venture, Potts, circa 1975, drew backgrounds and some secondary figures for a late fill-in issue of DC Comics Richard Dragon: Kung Fu Fighter, being drawn by Bay Area comics artists Jim Starlin and Alan Weiss. Relocating to New York City, he freelanced briefly until joining Neal Adams' commercial-art company and comic-book packager Continuity Studios. "Continuity was gearing up to produce black-and-white magazines based on several TV series: The Six Million Dollar Man, Space: 1999 and Emergency!. I got involved with storyboard and comp art for major New York ad agencies. I also produced finished-illustration for magazines and books for several years before joining Marvel's editorial staff in 1983."

At Marvel as an editor, Potts discovered and developed many top comic book creators including Jim Lee, Whicle Portacio, Scott Williams, Larry Stroman, Steve Scroce and Jon Bogdanove. Potts developed The Punisher, a second string guest star, into a thriving franchise consisting of three monthly titles and numerous limited series and graphic novels. He also helped develop and edited Power Pack and Strikeforce Morituri. Other titles Potts edited include The Incredible Hulk, Doctor Strange, Alpha Flight, Solomon Kane and The Defenders. After hours, Potts continued to write and produce some occasional art for Marvel. In 1983, he and co-creators Alan Zelenetz and Frank Cirocco developed the concept of "the French Foreign Legion in space" and launched the first volume of the Alien Legion series. It was followed by a second volume, several miniseries and one-shots. Collaborators included writers Chuck Dixon and Larry Stroman and artists Terry Austin, Whilce Portacio and Scott Hanna, among others. In 1989, Potts was named Executive Editor in charge of the Epic imprint, and about a third of the Marvel imprint titles. In 1994 he was named Editor-in-Chief of the "General Entertainment" and Epic Comics divisions.

After 13 years at Marvel, Potts left to become Creative Director at VR-1, a massively multiplayer online game company. He then worked with Gary Winnick and Cirocco's Lightsource Studios before accepting the Senior Creative Director position in AGENCY.COM’s New York office.

Currently, Potts does strategic and creative consulting for a variety of publishing, entertainment and interactive clients including HarperCollins, TOKYOPOP, Mainframe Entertainment, The Learning Company and Funrise Toys.
