Neely's art has been featured in galleries in California and New York, in magazines, literary journals and on album covers for bands like Isis, Melvins, Groovie Ghoulies and Green Day. His debut graphic novel, The Blot, earned him an Ignatz Award and made it onto several of the industry’s Best of 2007 lists as well as The Comics Journal’s Best Graphic Novels of the decade 2000-10.
Neely created artwork for three stories in the Roger Langridge scripted Popeye series for IDW, as well as a handful of comics for Phineas and Ferb Magazine. He authored the Melvins comic book Your Disease Spread Quick and a collection of comic strip poems called Brilliantly Ham-Fisted, before completing his second graphic novel The Wolf.
The story of Henry & Glenn continues in the collected Henry & Glenn Forever & Ever, including over 50 artists curated by Neely and is currently selling out everywhere. He recently wrapped up the 11 issue cult-hit Image Comics mini-series, The Humans, as artist and co-creator with writer Keenan Marshall Keller.
Neely is currently working on his third graphic novel, The Devil.
