Greg worked at Walt Disney Television Animation from 1989 through 1996. In 1991, Greg created and developed a new series for Disney: GARGOYLES, becoming Supervising Producer and Supervising Story Editor of that series.
In 1998, Greg became a full-time Freelancer.

Experience the first official adventure in Magic: The Gathering’s multiverse in nearly a decade as the ultimate battle begins on Ravnica. Teyo Verada wants nothing more than to be a shieldmage, wielding arcane energies to protect his people from his world’s vicious diamondstorms. When he’s buried alive in the aftermath of his first real tempest, the young mage’s life is about to end before it can truly begin—until it doesn’t. In a flash, a power he didn’t know he had whisks him away from his home, to a world of stone, glass, and wonder: Ravnica. Teyo is a Planeswalker, one of many to be called to the world-spanning city—all lured by Nicol Bolas, the Elder Dragon. Bolas lays siege to the city of Ravnica, hungry for the ultimate prize: godhood itself. His unparalleled magic and unstoppable army appear poised to bring the city to utter ruin. Among those who stand in the way of Bolas’s terrifying machinations are the Gatewatch, Planeswalkers sworn to defeat evil, no matter where it’s found. But as they work to unite the other mages and mount a defense of the city and its people, the terrifying truth of Bolas’s plan becomes clear. The Elder Dragon has prepared a trap to ensnare the most powerful mages from across the Multiverse—and it’s too late to escape. As forces great and small converge on the city and the battle rages, the stakes could not be higher. If the Gatewatch falters and the Planeswalkers fail, the curtain will fall on the age of heroes—and rise on the infinite reign of Nicol Bolas.
Gonzalo Campoverde: It’s been a LONG time since I haven’t been stuck to a novel like this one stuck me. I literally just took pauses to eat, sleep and watch Avengers: Endgame.
As a MtG novel, it fulfills all my needs: correct and faithful portraits of my favorite planeswalkers, for example. I think some exposition was necessary for the small percentage of people that will read this without having followed the whole Bolas arc in MtG storyline website, so I’ll forgive it.
Anyway, Greg Weisman has done a fantastic job writing a thrilling tale full of action and suspense: short episodes and multiple perspectives are handled with mastery to make this an absolute page turner. The only way I could have loved it more is by not seeing the spoilers in the card set, as a clear idea of everything that happened in the book has found its place in most of the cards in it.
That’s pretty much it, I can’t wait for the sequel! And the short stories related to the novel that will be sent as a newsletter from Penguin RandomHouse.
Charlie: This one was a bit of a rough start for me because the author has to explain the identity, powers, history and relationships of every single character in the novel. I don’t fault the author, MtG has not put out a novel like this in a long time and we can’t be certain how caught up everyone is. Once we got into the second act the book really warmed up for me. I appreciated having the multiple perspective chapters. This is a story whose every major beat was already revealed with the cards but all the scenes remained interesting and engaging. Wesiman did a tremendous job with all characters but most especially Liliana and it really is tricky to get an anti-hero just right. Very pleased
