His work as co-writer on FRANKLIN RICHARDS: SON OF A GENIUS earned an Eisner Award nomination (2006) and two Harvey Award nominations (2006 & 2008). Some of Sumerak's other writing work includes MARVEL ADVENTURES: SPIDER-MAN, HULK TEAM-UP, WEAPON X: FIRST CLASS, CHAOS WAR: GOD SQUAD, I AM AN AVENGER, SPIDER-MAN FAMILY, and a highly-publicized story from MODELS INC. starring Iron Man and TV fashion icon Tim Gunn.
