Entering the field during the mid-1980s as an editor and writer with Fantagraphics Books' comic book fan magazine, Amazing Heroes, Waid was soon hired to serve as an editor for DC Comics where he worked on titles such as Secret Origins and Legion of Super-Heroes. He has stated that his comics work was heavily influenced by Adventure Comics #369-370 (1968), a Legion story by Jim Shooter & Mort Weisinger: "It's a blueprint for everything I write."
In 1990 Waid left editorial work for freelance writing assignments. He worked for DC's short-lived Impact Comics line where he wrote The Comet and co-wrote Legend of the Shield.
