Colletta began working in comics in 1952 as a penciller, mainly on romance titles, for several publishers including Archie Comics, Charlton Comics, and Atlas Comics. In the 1960s he began working on superhero titles, focusing chiefly on inking, including the Marvel title Daredevil. It was around that time that he first collaborated with penciller Jack Kirby, and they worked on Journey into Mystery starring Thor for six years.

When Kirby moved to DC Comics in the 1970s, Colletta moved with him and the two continued to produce work together on several projects including Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen and The New Gods. He was also the regular inker for Wonder Woman from 1973 to 1980. In 1976 Colletta was named DC's art director, a title he held until 1979. He continued to ink on a variety of projects for both Marvel and DC until the late 1980s.
