Thomas Baker is a former writer for ThoughtCo who specialized in Marvel comic books, especially Spider-Man. Baker also has written about comic books, video games, films, music, television, and technology for, and DIY Magazine.

After joining the editorial staff for in 2012 to get the technology start-up off the ground, Baker became a staff writer for WhatCulture, penning multiple articles about entertainment news, television shows, video games, and comic books. Then, a childhood spent avoiding the grim British weather (not to mention all the cruel "Doctor Who"-related taunts) reading "Spider-Man" comics, Baker improbably found himself in a position where he wrote about his hero for a living.

From there, Baker became a contributing reporter for Broken Frontier, a small-press comic site, and a web content assistant for Sheffield Hallam University where he's helping to rewrite the college's online prospectus of over 500 courses.


Baker has a Bachelor of Arts in Creative Writing and Media Writing from the University Of Derby.
