Diggle took over editing 2000 AD and Judge Dredd Megazine in the year 2000 and, as editor, was credited (most frequently by David Bishop, who originally employed him) as having spearheaded a return to the "old school" values of 2000 AD. While at 2000 AD he wrote a number of stories, including the Judge Dredd spin-off Lenny Zero with Jock, with whom he would continue to collaborate after his move to American comic books.
Diggle spent a total of five years under exclusive contract to DC Comics, for whom he wrote Lady Constantine, Batman Confidential, Green Arrow: Year One (again with Jock), Adam Strange: Planet Heist and Hellblazer.
This was followed by Guy Ritchie's Gamekeeper, which was shortly thereafter optioned by Warner Bros, for Virgin Comics.

To Diggle's left are Dennis Calero and Matt Wagner.Diggle also wrote the webcomic prequel to the Bionic Commando game, after having been hired by Capcom to script a playable test level during game development.
In 2008, Andy Diggle was announced as the new writer of Thunderbolts, his first work at Marvel Comics since his Punisher one-shot. The changes in the Thunderbolts were part of the "Secret Invasion" aftermath storyline, the "Dark Reign" storyline, for which Diggle also wrote a tie-in miniseries, Dark Reign: Hawkeye.
Diggle signed an exclusive deal with Marvel early in 2009 and would go on to take over the writing of Daredevil after Ed Brubaker's departure in issue #500, wrote Dark Reign: The List - Daredevil and the main limited series in the Daredevil storyline Shadowland. He was subsequently announced as the primary writer accompanying artist Tony Daniel on Action Comics (Volume 2) issue #19 in May 2013, following writer Grant Morrison's departure. However, Diggle left the title with only one issue completed (he would be co-writer for #20 and co-plot issue #21), with Daniel taking on full scripting and art duties for the two following issues completing the three part story arc "Hybrid".
In 2013 Diggle began writing a paranormal crime comic titled Uncanny for Dynamite Entertainment as part of their crime line of comics. In October 2013, he and his wife announced that they would write a second series called Control that would feature "hard-hitting crime" stories.
