In addition to his work on superheroes, Giella did freelance work for such prestigious firms as McCann Erickson, Saatchi & Saatchi, Doubleday and Communigraphics. Giella’s work for publisher Simon & Schuster includes a strength and fitness book and a superhero cookbook. He has worked on many syndicated comic strips. Giella penciled and inked ‘Batman’ for four years (1966), doing his best to imitate Bob Kane. Joe Giella assisted on several syndicated strips, including ‘Flash Gordon’, ‘The Phantom’, ‘Johnny Reb’ and ‘Sherlock Holmes’.
Since 1991, Joe Giella has drawn ‘Mary Worth’ for King Featuers. It is one of the classic soap-opera comic strips, which was scripted by John Saunders until 2003 and by Karen Moy since then. In 2006, the United States Postal Service honored Giella by using his art on two postage stamps in the DC Comics Super Heroes Collection.
