- Tom Brevoort on Twitter and Formspring.
- Some samples, courtesy of Tom, of his artwork from his early years:
- As mentioned, Tom worked up turnarounds using Marvel Universe Handbook templates for newer characters (at the time). Here’s his workup of X-Force’s Shatterstar & Cable:
- Perhaps here’s where Tom was influenced to be a teacher/mentor, here are some documents given to him (and the other interns) in 1989:
- Tom spent time working on trading cards and then, as an editor, appeared ON a trading card:
- The Daily Bugle mini series covers featured a logo placement suggest by me as Tom’s intern:
- Also as an intern, Tom offered great constructive criticism of this drawing (sadly, the tracing paper corrections Tom did are lost to time – I specifically remember Tom noting how short Angel’s arms were. He was right.):
- As Tom’s assistant, I collected the following drawings by Tom along the way:
“How2”, the result of some riffing on the M2 line of comics, featuring J2,
descendant of The Juggernaut, who tied a flannel shirt around his waist.
I had been doing a bunch of drawings of Marvel characters a la Peanuts.
Tom joined in on the fun with these.
- An “episode” of The Marvel Reading Circle:
- Tom mentioned the “Journey of the Helmet”, which was a serialized “story” I wrote in the THOR letters page while I was Tom’s assistant.
- Tom has always been active online, including a long run of a blog on Marvel.com. Here’s one entry, which (naturally) involved me and my time working with Tom:
- The long version of the Starfox story I mentioned while discussing the internet and fan reaction.
- And here’s a shot of Tom from one of his appearances on a Food Network cake challenge show (this particular episode more specifically chronicled here):
Of course he’s wearing his now signature hat, which he bought at Hats in the Belfry.
- BONUS VIDEO: The incredibly funny Paul F. Tompkins discussing his experience with Hats in the Belfry:
