Mostly using the pen name Vicatan, he worked for DC's horror and war titles during most of the 1970s and 1980s (The Unexpected, G.I. Combat, House of Mystery, etc.), and provided art for comic book adaptations of literary classics for Pendulum Press ('Billy Bud', 'Crime and Punishment', 'Othello', 'MacBeth', 'Julius Ceasar'). He was also present in the Warren magazine Eerie, in Archie's 'The Jaguar' (1983-84) and in Renegade's 'Revolver'. Vic Catan was also a novelist.
