Career

Brooks' first published work was in 10th Muse, written by Marv Wolfman for Image Comics, in which he penciled the Atlas back-up stories in 2001. His first cover art was a variant for the Atlas #1 one-shot for Avatar Press. His other early work includes Transformers: More Than Meet the Eyes for Dreamwave Productions, G.I Joe vs. the Transformers for Devil's Due Publishing, and Ultraman Tiga for Dark Horse Comics.

In 2004, Brooks penciled and provided the cover art for a number of issues of Marvel Age Spider-Man, his first collaboration with Marvel. He then worked on Cable & Deadpool for two issues before moving on to illustrate the first arc of Amazing Fantasy (vol.2) featuring Anya Corazon. He signed an exclusive contract with Marvel the same year. His work with Marvel from then-on included penciling issues of The Amazing Spider-Man, Ultimate Spider-Man Annual, Ultimate X-Men, Ultimate Fantastic Four, as well as providing cover art for the 12-issue limited series Araña: The Heart of the Spider as well as multi-issue runs on other titles including Avengers: The Initiative, Dark Reign: Young Avengers, and X-Men: Legacy.

In 2014, Brooks was awarded the Inkpot Award.

In 2016, Brooks gained critical acclaim for penciling the five-issue Han Solo miniseries with writer Marjorie Liu, set between the original 1977 Star Wars film and The Empire Strikes Back.[2] For his work, he was nominated for the Eisner Award in two categories, best penciler/inker and best limited series.

In 2017, Brooks was the main cover artist for the 12-issue Secret Empire crossover storyline. He also provided variant covers for the 4-issue miniseries X-Men/Fantastic Four (Vol. 2).

In 2022, Brooks was announced as the main cover artist for Immortal X-Men as well as the Judgment Day crossover event.
