Greg Theakston has been in the publishing business since 1967, when he produced his first fanzine. Since then he's been around the publishing industry and back and tried out lots of jobs along the way. Theakston assisted Jim Steranko and Neal Adams, illustrated hundreds of paintings for dozens of publishers including Marvel Comics, DC Comics, Archie Comics, National Lampoon, The New York Times, Playboy, TV Guide and Rolling Stone. Theakston has been a regular illustrator at MAD Magazine for a decade.

Greg has also developed a system to reconstructing lost comic pages for reprinting. "Theakstonizing" (a term coined by Dick Giordano) is responsible for thousands of pages of comic art reprints and was used to produce the Captain America, Superman, Batman, Archie, Dick Tracy and numerous other collections.

He likes publishing so much he does that as well. His company Pure Imagination has produced seventy-five books and magazines researching pop culture. Credits include the Treasury series (Neal Adams, Wallace Wood, Jack Kirby, and Berni Wrightson retrospectives), Pure Images, his Eisner Award-nominated research book, the infamous Betty Pages, and numerous books and features on Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko, Alex Toth and others.
