Early in his career, Pollina worked for Friendly Comics, an adult comics publisher owned by pornographer and ferret advocate Eric Shefferman. While at Friendly, Pollina provided pencils for the popular Sex Trek series, an adult parody of Star Trek featuring characters named "Jism T. Cock" and "Jean-Luc Prickhard."
Pollina began to pencil X-Force in 1995 with #44 and continued as regular penciller until #81 in 1998. In 1996 he drew the four-issue limited series Rise of Apocalypse, again for Marvel.
He has also produced a creator-owned limited series Big Daddy Danger, which was published by DC Comics in 2002. This series is reportedly being developed by Walt Disney Studios as a feature film.
