Tom Grummett

Tom Grummett is a legendary artist, who began his career providing finished artwork over George Pérez's layouts on The New Titans #58. He worked with Marv Wolfman and Pérez on the "A Lonely Place of Dying" storyline, which introduced Tim Drake as the new Robin. Grummett remained on The New Titans after Pérez's departure and helped Wolfman revitalize the title.

Grummett then began a long association with the Superman franchise when he drew Action Comics #665 and then helped writer Louise Simonson and artist Jon Bogdanove launch a new title, Superman: The Man of Steel in  1991. Grummett drew part of The Adventures of Superman #480 and became the main artist on that series with the following issue, followed by working on the "Panic in the Sky" crossover in 1992.

During his run on The Adventures of Superman, Grummett and writer Jerry Ordway (along with editor Mike Carlin, Dan Jurgens, Roger Stern and others) were the architects of "The Death of Superman" storyline, in which Superman died and was resurrected. It was during that storyline that Grummett and writer Karl Kesel created the new Superboy in The Adventures of Superman #500.

Grummett drew parts for DC Comics' other major event of the early 1990s, "Batman: Knightfall", contributing parts of "Knightquest" and "KnightsEnd." Grummett launched an ongoing Robin series in 1993 with writer Chuck Dixon and a Superboy series with writer Karl Kesel. In the summer of 1995, writer Roger Stern and Grummett created a new quarterly series, Superman: The Man of Tomorrow.

Grummett was one of the many artists who contributed to the Superman: The Wedding Album one-shot in 1996 wherein the title character married Lois Lane. Other work for DC included collaborating with Chuck Dixon on a Secret Six one-shot as part of the Tangent Comics imprint and co-creating the Power Company series with writer Kurt Busiek in 2002.

At Marvel Comics, he completed a run as penciller on Thunderbolts in 2007 and in 2009 he co-created the X-Men Forever series with Chris Claremont.

Grummett also worked on Avengers/Thunderbolts, Fantastic Four, Incredible Hulk, and Avengers Academy, among others.

Grummett has illustrated comics published as a joint program between Marvel and the United States Armed Forces, and custom comics for Marvel and DC serving commercial clients. He was honored in 2015 as a recipient of an Inkpot Award for achievement in the comic arts.

Tom Grummett will be appearing at Niagara Falls Comic Con all three days.
