Tom Cook at Wizard World Chicago 2015

I first encountered professional animator Tom Cook at Wizard World Chicago 2013.  When I learned that he worked on Masters of the Universe, I got HeMan fan Tommy Else to do an interview with him.  That interview can be found at On the Beat with Tom Cook at Wizard World.
Cook started with Hanna-Barbera Studios in 1978 and has worked on The SuperFriends (with my favorite old school Aquaman), the Smurfs, the Flintstones and more.  At some point in your life, you most definitely have seen Cook's work.
Cook has worked with some of the real legends of animation, like Tex Avery and Mel Blanc.  It's cool to hear him speak with reverence about these men and other greats in the field of animation.  With his resume, I am sure others speak of him with the same respect.  Cook has joined the group of legends.
At ComicCreations.com, you can learn more about Cook, along with getting updates and merchandise info.  Be sure to check out his appearance schedule, too.
