Correa's most significant comics contribution was his extensive adventure and western comics for Dell (1953-1959), particularly on Four Color. He is known for his work on Zorro and Turok Son of Stone.

After leaving the comics industry, Correa provided illustrations for men's adventure pulps, especially Stanley Publications, from 1958 to 1962. He subsequently moved into commercial illustration, providing some covers for records and illustrations for books (around 1962-1982).
