Pollard made his professional comics debut in 1974 with stints on such titles as Master of Kung Fu, Deadly Hands of Kung Fu, Astonishing Tales, and Black Goliath. He was the regular penciller of The Amazing Spider-Man from issue #186 (Nov. 1978) through issue #205 (June 1980) and pencilled the backup feature in The Amazing Spider-Man Annual #15 (1981).[3] With writer Marv Wolfman, Pollard introduced the Black Cat in The Amazing Spider-Man #194 (July 1979).[4] Wolfman and Pollard were the creative team for both Fantastic Four #200 (Nov. 1978) and The Amazing Spider-Man #200 (Jan. 1980).[5]

Pollard was also the regular penciler of Thor issues #286-320.[3] In 1982, Pollard moved to DC Comics where he drew part of Wonder Woman #300 (Feb. 1983)[6] and launched the Vigilante series with Marv Wolfman.[7]

Pollard and Stan Lee produced the Silver Surfer: The Enslavers graphic novel in 1990.[8] In the early 1990s he drew all the character profiles for the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe Master Edition.[3]

Pollard left comics in 1994, though he occasionally makes appearances at comic book conventions.[9]
