Tom Brennan

Tom Brennan (Class of 2005) has been working in comic book publishing since 2007, beginning his career with Marvel Entertainment, where he worked on books like The Amazing Spider-ManThe Avengers and Wolverine and was one of the editors who brought Amazing Spider-Man #583 to life, which featured a cameo by President Barack Obama and went on to become the highest selling book of the decade.  In the autumn of 2014 he joined the team at media start up Valiant Entertainment, where he serves as Editor.  He's also a comedian, performing in clubs and theaters across the country.  His weekly political talk show Electoral Dysfunction runs on saturdays at The Peoples Improv Theater.  

He credits Drexel University with pretty much his entire career.  "Ian Abrams & Matt Kaufhold at the Screenwriting & Playwriting program found out I liked comic books, they encouraged me to meet every and anyone I could involved in the medium.  I did and it opened doors before I even graduated as I spent my co-op interning for Marvel Comics.  I owe them and Drexel for a career that's never given me a boring day of work."

When he's not making comic books or making jokes on stage, Tom returns to Drexel as an Adjunct where he teaches courses in, yep, comic book & graphic novel production.
